DreamWorks to open indoor theme park in Yekaterinburg in 2015

Legendary film company DreamWorks recently announced that it will open year-round theme parks in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg in 2015.

REGIONS Group, a partner in the project, will design, build and manage the parks, which will feature movie and concert halls, 4D cinemas, hotels, shopping centers and parking complexes, Argophilia reports.

The roofs of the indoor parks, the largest of their kind in Europe, will be nearly 115 feet high to give visitors the sensation of being outdoors.

Park attendees can expect to interact with characters from such DreamWorks' films as Shrek, Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda and the upcoming Turbo.

"Russia is one of the most important markets in the world for us" DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg said, according to Argophilia. "These parks are going to be groundbreaking cultural hubs that will give families the chance to truly enter the world of DreamWorks."
