Dismantling of attractions for adults in Gorky Park began as prescribed after RTN conducted the audit showed that many of them are unsafe for further use. Among the reasons cited are also a lot of noise and excessive cost of electricity to operate the rides.
Administration of the city, it was decided to return the park historic look and make it a place for intellectual recreation. After the reconstruction, it is planned to create multiple sites for exhibitions and festivals.
I guess that the local government wanted to change the park into a more "traditional" city park and the big, hulking roller coasters weren't part of the picture for whatever reason. While I like the idea of more city parks sprouting up around the world, Euro Star is legendary and shouldn't be hanging around in some warehouse.
Its sad to see a Giovanola/intamin invert go away. Im surprised no other parks have bought it. Wiki says that coaster cost 20 million usd. Damn. I wish Giovanola could of stuck around. It would be neat seeing them competing against Beamer and intamin, as well as working with them.
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

I have searched the internet for any signs of Eurostar operating at Oktoberfest in 2014 and absolutely nothing comes up. No photos, videos, reports of it, people talking about it, etc. If it was there you'd find at least some trace of it, so I'm going to assume it's still MIA since 2011.
Sorry, guess I was thinking of another coaster. But I still think there was more than one, even if they're both defunct. According RCDB the one at Gorky operated from 2008-2011, when the park closed, but I found some videos of the one at oktoberfest from 2009 and 2010. I may be completely wrong, so I apologize in advance if I am.
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts
