A Fantastic Playground In Russia That Features A Giant Octopus Fighting A Ship

Danish design firm Monstrum, whom we have previously written about here and here, have created a fantastic new playground in Moscow’s Gorky Park.

As with their previous creations, the new playground features an amazing dramatic scene of a gigantic octopus engulfing an oceanliner, along with traditional playground obstacles like slides, cargo nets, and climbing walls. Children can explore the ship which contains an engine room, ballroom, and captain’s cabin, and climb on shower waves that surround the ship and octopus.

With their larger-than-life designs that are full of fantastic theatrical elements, it would be hard to top Monstrum in the playground department.

Check out more images of the maritime wonderland below.
