Russia's Disney Land

Divo Ostrov (Wonder Island) is a theme park in St. Petersburg. Designed after Disney Land, it is now the biggest and newest of its kind in Russia. With 34 rides and attractions, there is fun for all ages. However, many of the rides here are much more extreme than in America. Take the "Wind Shear" for example.

Riders are taken to heights of 26m and are rotated at speeds of 9 rpm. The machine turns clockwise on one side and counterclockwise on the other, leaving visitors feeling nauseous after a two and a half minute spin.
