  1. It's a typical Soviet-style suburb, doesn't look like the perfect place for a Universal Studios park!

    Here we go:

    However, the construction of the park - not yet resolved the issue. The project has not yet passed the city planning commission land. According to Gutseriev, there are pre-project concept, to which investors in the near future will come to the city authorities to support the project.

    Thank you for your contributions @rubold and @Vika!

    It'd be terrific to see an indoor version of Universal Studios. I can see it working in Moscow, since it won't solely cater to Russian citizens (143 million), but to all the former Soviet Republics whose nationals have visa-free access to Russia. Wikipedia estimates the number of Russian speakers at around 280 million. This is a huge market, and apart from desolate fun fairs there's absolutely no theme park all the way from Minsk to Vladivostok. It's about time.

    I marked the proposed location on Google Maps:

    I attach photos of Galactica Park from Chapman Taylor architect website and from 1TV news websites. The sources http://www.chapmantaylor.com/ and http://www.1tv.ru/news/social/204224. On Chapyman Taylor website Galatica Park has year 2011, so maybe already old project? But how Universal will fit inside mall? Look a bit small for theme park inside mall on highway interchange.

    Hey, I am from Russia . I guess everybody would love to know what they are talking about on this video. Here is my translated version:

    “A giant theme park is planned in south of Moscow. Universal Studios’ construction will commence in 2014, its size will starch for more than 20 hectares. The core of this park will consist of various attractions, and next to it will be located an area for sports activities, shows, an aqua park, a musical theatre, a cinema, exhibition halls, restaurants and a shopping centre. In addition to that, 2 hotels, a congress hall and a huge parking space.

    According to the plan, the door to Universal Studios will be open for the public in 2018. The project leaders said that the project will cost 3 billion US dollars. It’s the first park of its kind which will be built under the roof in a closed space.”

    U.S. entertainment giant NBCUniversal is in talks to build a Hollywood-style theme park in Moscow with powerful real estate developer Sait-Salam Gutseriyev, and the park's multibillion-dollar construction in the southern part of the capital would add formidably to Gutseriyev's holdings.

    Also part of the venture is Anschutz Entertainment Group, part of U.S. company Anschutz, an owner of sports and concert centers worldwide.

    Named Galactica Park, the Moscow complex would include an all-weather theme park, two hotels with a total of 1,100 rooms, an aquapark, a shopping center, two office towers, underground parking for more than 10,000 cars, and a sports and concert arena with 20,000 seats, the three parties to the venture said in a statement.

    The project would cost $2.8 billion, and direct investment into the theme park itself would be $500 million, Gutseriyev said, Kommersant reported. Gutseriyev said he intends to seek financing from banks "with which we have had partner relationships," Kommersant also reported Friday.

    NBCUniversal has a preliminary agreement to build the park, Vedomosti said, citing the global business development president for NBCUniversal's theme park division, Michael Silver.
