    Short answer is the EU and government. Basically they'll give money (I think it is actually giving them and not a loan?) towards investment as it helps boost tourism to the country and surrounding area.

    Pretty sure this was practically confirmed as the park's intention a little while back, along with a mine train and tilt coaster by 2020?

    ^Yep. They get subsidies from the European Union and Polish Government. Since Poland is one of Europe's poorest countries they obviously are hoping a massive theme park will create jobs and boost the economy.

    It is crazy though to see the coaster collection they are building up in such a short space of time...

    Of course government and EU subsidies are the obvious answer to explain Energylandia's crazy fast expansion, but I wonder if anyone has some info on the actual owner(s) of the park themselves. Is there a rich/powerful individual or financial group to back up the park along the taxpayer money? Also, how much of the money used for these massive investment actually come from subsidies rather than private funding?

    For a park that gets a seemingly limitless amount of funds, they have made some fairly smart choices so far imo. You could do a lot worse than new-gen Vekomas, Intamin Mega and RMC Woodies. Too bad they couldn't wait a few more year for a second generation SLC, and the SBF Spinners feel out-of-place though.

    I have it on fairly good authority the SBF spinner is on the way out already. Weird considering it's only been there a little while.

    Well, subsidies from EU are on the first place, but from the other hand, as far as I know, there was no financiall help from government. Since EL has grown, the park can generate proper money by itself, at least for maintenance. The three coasters in 2020 ( Wooden made out of new-generation wood, first launched water coaster, and special mine train coaster ) got financial support from EU for the last time.
    In short versoin- EU is giving a lot of money for EL's innovative projects till 2020. So now each coaster in park ( even SLC, which has over 10 copies in Europe ) is NEW, SPECIAL, INNOVATEIVE and so on. And we all know that this is b$%$%hit. They are not first to use VR in their coasters nor first to build RMC or apply any other new tachnologies. But, for EU to give milions and milions of EURO is enough.

    The owner of Energylandia is rich but you can't find him in the TOP 50 richest people in Poland... so there are rumors about some other co-owners or financial group, but it's nothing certain.

    ^Nah, not when the Intamin Aquatrax with 2 launches and 5 inversions gets built. (Which is actually also on the list) :)

    And for the rest of us, with limited understanding of the Polish language...

    Also, is this topic worth moving into the Energylandia thread?

    Has anyone actually been to this park? It seems like it might be a bit wishy-washy on the inside.

    Not surprised it's a Vekoma for the launch coaster, but I'm a tad disappointed that we're not seeing another Mack or Intamin in the world. First Vekoma multi launch though I believe?

    Looking forward to seeing what they come up with for their mine train and the rumoured tilt coaster...
