Amusement parks in Minsk are preparing for "hibernation". Experts are dismantling equipment and cover seats. The rides "danced their last waltz" last week. Every year, a decision to close the season is taken due to weather conditions.
It is simply dangerous to use carousels during low temperatures.
The largest Ferris wheel in Belarus - 56 meters in height - will also be stopped on October 17 until the next season. The conservation will complete on October 28.
Vladimir Babivsky, chief engineer of Minskzelenstroi:
We started conservation of rides for winter in city parks. It is a complex of organizational and technical measures. We will cover amusement rides. We will also conserve controlling equipment. Access to the rides will be restricted.
