Park Severnoye Tushino

14th July 2013

Our second day in Moscow could best be described as scraping the bottom of the coaster barrel. The first Big Apple of the day was found amidst a half dozen other kiddie rides roughly twenty-five minutes walk from Planernaya metro station. The most interesting feature of Loch Ness Monster (#1936) was a brightly coloured train with a terrifying dragon head (complete with sharp-looking teeth) on the front.

 

Victory Park

14th July 2013

Our second stop was at Victory Park, a two-coaster park that was closed and appeared to have been so for some time. The only person on site was a gruff looking security guard, and while he spoke no English it was fairly evident that he didn't want us hanging around. While the Caterpillar was hardly a big loss, it would have been fun to ride the Asteroid...

Kolomenskoye

14th July 2013

We found another Big Apple close to Kolomenskaya metro station amidst another set of family rides. Dragon Roller Coaster (#1937) had the same train design as the ride we'd ridden earlier in the day, making me think that this model is of local manufacture.

 

Luna Park Happyland

14th July 2013

Luna Park Happyland was the only park in Moscow that had a problem with us taking photographs, though fortunately I'd already captured everything I wanted to before we discovered this. We scored our third credit of the day on Gusenitsa (#1938) before making a rapid exit.

 

Gorky Park

14th July 2013

Gorky Park is an enormous civic park in the centre of Moscow that was once home to a number of coasters. The best information on the Internet indicated that all of these had been retired, but we decided to double-check. Most of the group gave up after a few minutes and parked themselves in the bar, but Megan and I decided to do a lap of the park just to be certain that there were no credits left. None were in evidence, but we did find a large antique carousel, and later on, we found a set of family rides, including a brightly coloured wave swinger.
