It's good but it lacks a Nemesis Inferno.

It's being built with the money the illegal and untaxed car washers earn in supermarket carparks across the country, which they send home to their families. They were all going to club together and bu

What I find refreshing is the fact that they aren't shrouding anything in mystery like Merlin.

A large space for the mine train. Intrigued as to how it will be themed given how great Aqualantis will look when done. 

I've heard the Mine Train is planned to be an extension to the Dragon Zone, but honestly no idea.

 

Given their recent investments though I think it's likely it'll be reasonably well styled at the very least.

Most attractions pre-Hyperion pretty much look like they’ve just been plonked down on any available land in a RCT type fashion.

But a lot of those rides have been updated over recent closed seasons. So the future is still looking good.

Indeed and it’s great to see this happening besides the new stuff.

 

One however though just has to compare something like Zadra/Aqualantis to that horrible looking wild mouse with OTSR (why though?) which is probably one of the worst attractions there. 
 

The park probably has one of the brightest futures around. And is high up on my bucket list once this horrible virus is done.

Looking great. This alongside Zadra and Hyperion could very well give the park the best "triple threat" of any European park.

 

Excited to see what the area will look like once it's all themed up and complete and more importantly I look forward to revisiting for this as soon as our wonderful government opt to stop holding us all as hostages!!

Abyssus and Aqualantis aren't even finished yet (theming-wise), bu their next coaster now stands completed:

There's still theming work to be done, and current reports suggest it will be themed to "Sweet Valley", whatever that will entail.. It's thought the original plan was for it to be part of the Dragon Zone Zadra lies in.

 

Rumours point to a 2022 opening. Presumably because of the amount of theming it is to receive. Hard to know whether it's been pushed back because of the delays due to Covid, or whether that was the intention for a while. I'm thinking the former personally.

 

Of course, Zadra was meant to open in 2020, but ended up opening in August 2019, so who knows with this crazy park...

This is one massive park

 

And it will only keep on getting bigger! This is the amount of land they have access to, and have mid-term plans to utilise:

That's a rather old image from shortly after the park opened. Zadra, Aqualantis and the mine train extend that core part of the park leftwards, but not to the border. 

 

Another old (slightly outdated) image shows roughly some plans they have for expansion:

The top left part of the image (not colourised) shows the park excluding the expansions of Zadra, Aqualantis and the mine train). Zadra, Aqualantis and the mine train are all in the highlighted red zone, but only cover about 60-70% of it. 

 

So after these two areas open, the park still has room to almost double its park size. And on top of that, they have the option to renovate a large part of the original park, which has a strong fairground vibe (and the park have said they acknowledge the need for it to improve in the future).

I like the expansion, but I hope it doesn't expand too rapidly, look at Six Flags Worlds of Adventure/Geauga Lake. Sometimes building things left and right can not end well. I hope the park hits its attendance targets, I hope to go there someday. I think Eastern Europe is a bit of a untapped market so hopefully a large park like Energylandia can attract people from far away. Countries like Slovakia for example has no real near good parks (maybe other than Wiener Prater in nearby Austria which seems like a funfair really).

The Mine Train, which is going in the new Sweet Valley area of the park, will be called Choco Chip Creek. Some more photos:

(Images from FOMO Coaster's Facebook)

 

This is expected to open in 2022, as the park are planning on doing a fair amount of theming to the ride, and some sort of surrounding area.

The aerial photo only shows 2 trains, but it will in fact have 3, each seating 32 people.

 

We do have the 2021 park map available to us now, which helps show it's location a bit clearer:

There's some confusion about what the coaster-looking like thing below the sign saying about Sweet Valley could be. I'd expect that whatever it is, it is coming next year.

We can also see other new investments, including a new, separate, aquapark, as well as the new hotel below Formula (which I think will be styled in a Venetian way).

 

On top of that, work is still ongoing in parts of Aqualantis. I believe it's largely done (at the very least, Abyssus is ready), but there was a new theming feature built around part of Light Explorer, the Boomerang:

(again, from FOMO Coaster)

 

It's a very weird thing. It looks pretty cool in its own right, but it looks far to clean and neat for what should be a a ruined underwater city. All very odd. Obviously it's great to see the quality of the park's theming improve again, but it's a shame that the feel of it misses the mark.

 

The park hope to be opening up again some time next month, which could finally see the Aqualantis zone open up.
