    Newly constructed Ukrainian shopping mall Respublika is to receive its very own shopping mall cred.

    Re: Custom Vekoma for Respublika

    Looks pretty cool, especially as they have some other attractions in there already. The image makes the space seem a bit tight and a coaster would be making lots of noise while taking up some room. I'm sure it'll work out well though.

    Looking at RCDB, this is only the second custom layout coaster ever in Ukraine, the first since 2008. Interesting fact.

    New Maurer Söhne spinner has been added to the park on rcdb. This looks like it could become (by far) the best shopping mall amusement park in Europe.

    If it is of anybody's interest, another new mall is opening in Kiev in the near future. As with Respublika, Lavina Mall will also feature a Vekoma coaster - world's first indoor SFC.

    The funny thing is that the entertainment area at the Mall is tiny. I can't see how they are going to fit it in at all.

    There's also an SFC going to a Mall Qingdao in China so will be interesting to see who opens first. Lavina Mall is still quite a way off being done and Respublika doesn't seem to have had a whole lot done since the update earlier in this thread. I guess the political situation there isn't helping.

    This was taken this month.

    A couple of pics taken in January, It doesn't look like there has been much progress in the past year.
    I guess the political situation in the country might be causing some issues

    They are at least still working. If a little slowly.
