Paul Beck says the park will be fully operating by July 2014.
Sochi Park is open and accessible free of charge for all Olympic guests. The two coasters and other major rides are not running yet.
CNN pictures and article suggest the park is already open:
Sochi Park, a $371 million theme park that locals call “Putin World” due to Russian president Vladimir Putin’s heavy involvement with its creation, will not be open in time for the Olympics.Source:Developers rushed to get the park done by the start of the Winter Games, but it hasn't yet been finished — construction workers continued to make final touches to the site on Tuesday.
Development has been marred by mysterious distractions, said TODAY’s Matt Lauer, who recounted a story circulating in the area that the oversized steel bolts crucial to attaching the roller coaster to the concrete slabs in the ground somehow got “misplaced.” Russian officials later apparently “found” the bolts after tracking them down.
The park’s hotel, which lights up at night, is reportedly fully occupied but there's no official word about who the tenants are. Word on the street, however, has it that members of the Dutch and Sri Lankan royal families are staying there.
