I'm just waiting for them to pull the trigger on a B&M Giga.
The theming for halloween was park wide in September, and was looking pretty damn good too... Far better than any UK park’s halloween theming.For some reason I didn't expect that track style. But nice to see it.
Also, speaking of Energylandia and the future, the park are ramping up their Halloween event and adding in three scare attractions this year for the first time.
The original design brief said minimum 3 lift hills so maybe not the standard model. There were some rumours this would feature a switch track and a backwards section (I've seen videos of Vekoma mine train models that feature this so it's not out of the question) but I've not seen any concrete info either way.How do we know that isn't the tilt coaster with the Gravity Max track-style, rather than the mine train?
I'm guessing it probably is the mine train, and I know I've said this before but I'm also assuming it's the standard 785m layout since Energylandia like their Vekoma clones.
^I agree, I hope it is built into a well themed mountain, or at least just well themed.I find the track color interesting for a mine train. They usually have black or brown tracks.
For me the theming on a mine train is as important as the coaster itself. So I hope they will not neglect the theming of this coaster.
The EU money was greatly exaggeratedAt this rate, manufacturers will have to come up with new coaster concepts to keep Energylandia spending their EU-money on them. Jeez, these people can't seem to stop building coasters on top of coasters. I am sure this park will be a case study in upcoming years.
I honestly don’t know how this is still spoken about as if it’s rumour and not public knowledge. Their very own web site explains their subsidies... Around 17.5M Euros... A drop in the ocean compared to what has been invested in the park since...The EU money was greatly exaggerated

Thanks for that info. My point still stands though, people act like this is all a bit dodgy and underhand when it’s actually a matter of public knowledge. They’re doing nothing wrong and are not hiding the fact.It's regarding the first co-funding program, during the early years of building energylandia. Now they're finishing building up offers from the program of development during 2014-2020 period. Eg. They've got 10 mln EUR fund for Zadra and 11 mln EUR for Aqualantis. It's visible on gov websites, though only in Polish.
