Kizhi Island (Russain Attractions)
This section of Victory Park has long been popular as a gathering place for Moscow youth. 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.
Opening hours: Daily from 12:00 to 21:00.
The funfair in Sokolniki Park is a genuine Soviet relic, with most of the rides dating from at least twenty years ago. Although worth a look just for curiosity value, it's probably only of interest to very young children. Nonetheless, the park is very central, and one of the best places in the city to bring kids for a walk or a picnic.
Amongst it's many attractions, the VVTs has plenty designed especially for children. 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.
Opening hours: Attraktsionomaniya: Daily 10:00 to 22:30 (11:00 to 21:00 in winter), Attra-park: Daily 11:00 to 20:00 (weekends only in winter), Theatre of Funny Horrors: Daily 12:00 to 20:00 (shows every hour).
