I considered visiting the Minsk Theme park last month but backed before the price of 110 RMB (11+ Euros) requested per person. An outrageous price (1 full week of work for an average chain worker) for a generally disappointing content (a few museum pieces that host a lot of restaurants and overpriced shops)

I did not know this Theme park planned to get rid of its major attraction.
