For older children, there are rollercoasters, a house of horrors, the gravity-defying 'Fly Machine', and the Buran, a genuine space shuttle, shelved in the eighties, that now contains a flight simulator. In winter, the huge outdoor skating rink is extremely popular, but not recommended for younger children, whereas the pedal boats that come out on the ponds in summer are a staid but safe way to kill a half-hour in the sun

There are two funfairs, one for toddlers (Attra-park), and one - with rollercoasters, motorbikes and the largest big wheel in Europe - for older kids (Attraktsionomaniya). There's also the Theatre of Funny Horrors, which has an old-fashioned charm, and a few of the ubiquitous gaming arcades and shooting galleries. As there's plenty more to do with children in the area, the VVTs could be one of the best places in the city for a family day out.

Although nothing special, the funfair has all the usual rides: carousels, a ghost train, dodgems, etc. There's also a 3D cinema, and Europe's largest ocean aquarium is now under construction nearby.
