author: Elmira Sabirova

In Ufa one of the greatest entertainment parks not only in Russia, but also in Europe will be constructed. A complex not conceding to the French Disneyland, Spanish Port Aventura and German Europa-Park will be located in the territory of the M.Gafuri’s Central Recreation Park, the spokesman of the investor — the general director of "Tricolor" company Michael Abramov promised in conversation with journalists on Wednesday.

The designer is one of the largest European companies on designing parks and amusement rides Baustudio Architects Associates.  It considered all features of our region, including climate, therefore an indoor part of the complex is provided, which will work all-the-year-round.

Visitors will see first of all a new big wheel of 48 m height. After Moscow and Sochi it will be the third largest wheel in Russia.

Yesterday the head of Ufa administration Irek Yalalov laid the corner stone on the place of the new big wheel, which is planned to be started in December, 2013.

The park will be divided into thematic zones, and this is its unique feature.

Irek Yalalov underlined: the existing green plantings will be kept untouched as much as possible. He added that the complex will be very big and will provide rest areas both for children of different age, and for adults and elderly people.

It is planned to open the park in the middle of summer 2015.

The estimated sum of investments into construction will make 120 million dollars. All funds are allocated by private investors.
