Rollercoaster of emotions awaits fans in St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) Football fans can go on a roller-coaster ride at their World Cup games in St. Petersburg, and that's even before kickoff.

An array of actual white-knuckle rides stand in the amusement park close to the stadium on a pre-match walk from the metro station.

Emerging from Krestovsky Ostrov station on the No. 5 metro line, fans see the spaceship-like stadium more than 1 kilometer (1,100 yards) away through the tree-lined path in the landscaped Primorskiy Victory Park.
