Work on at the roller coasters in Irkutsk.

Hi Everyone,

We found this real cool report at and

They're building a snow kingdom of chess this winter in Lisihe in Irkutsk. This snow kingdom will be alongside 10 roller coasters.

Karim Mukhamadeev, sculptor of the chess kingdom says, "The theme of the snow kingdom - The Kingdom of chess will have a real ice chessboard as its centrepiece. Nearby will be a big tent where guests can stay warm, eat pancakes and have hot tea."

The Kingdom is likely to open around December 4.
