Minsk rides complete 2016 warm season

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.
