The red track is for Vekoma Mine Train that will be built in the next land.

It's easy when the government is funding the project with tax dollars, which is also easy when your federal income tax is 18-32%, social security and "sickness tax" is 13.71%, and you pay a 23% sales tax (they call it VAT) on everything except food.

Sure, except it doesn't. Energylandia is owned and run by a private company whose owner is a rollercoaster enthusiast and they have nothing to do with Polish government. I have no idea where that idea came from. Truth is they received two EU grants for about 17-18 million EUR (about 50-60% of total value of the projects they applied for) and that's it. Still, I'm not sure if that's enough to build Hyperion alone.

Here's where I got that idea:

https://energylandia.pl/en/about-us/subsidies/

Converted to US Dollars, that's $10,665,283.88 and $8,685,504.90. Not sure if that's EU or Polish finding, but it doesn't matter, they're not small figures.

Also, from the attached image posted during the Hyperion expansion, they received $1,599,953.36 direct from the Polish government and $9,066,402.48 from the EU, which might as well be the same source. Also not small figures.

And that's just what's being disclosed publicly by the park; if you don't think there's other incentives behind the scenes (which the fact that the Hyperion project numbers are not listed on their "subsidies" page, it virtually confirms that there are), you're blind.

I'm sure their independently wealthy owner has a lot to do with it, but you can't say that the government (either Poland's or the EU) wasn't highly involved in its success or massive growth. The park would look a lot different today if it didn't have the financial support of Poland/the EU.

I'm sorry if I offended your national landmark, but it is what it is.
