    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.

    If it keeps this up, we could buy the park for CF.

    We probably wouldn't want it, mind.

    If we bought it and made a profit, we would be able to add anything we like! But of course, that won't happen, because why would we want to own a theme park?

    Surely those numbers are wrong, £53M for a shell of a shopping center with a relatively cheap cred inside. :emoji_poop: deal.

    Agreed, but I've just read a shell of a shopping centre in Ljubljana apparently being worth 43m€. And by my reckoning this looks quite a bit bigger and closer to being finished than the Ljubljana counterpart, so I don't believe the numbers being off by much, if anything even.

    Based on the latest update from RCDB, I'm going to unstick this thread now. If it ever comes back to life, we can update the thread.

    Should we unstick the Polercoaster thread as well, then? It hasn't been posted in for even longer, and the alleged site of construction appears even more dead.

    Yeah. :emoji_zipper_mouth: it.

    If it ever gains any momentum again we can always re-stick it. I like the idea of tidying all these stickied threads up a bit!

    Indeed, those two threads have kept bugging me for a while too. At one point this spring, every stickied thread apart from them had a reply within the last month, while the two had had more than a year since their last post. Now, we're back in a similar situation, with only two threads having their most recent post from more than one month ago. But I don't think those will be stuck in limbo forever.

    Definitely going to do something about the title of the Ferrari World thread, though. As far as I'm aware, we're only waiting for one coaster there.
