Welcome to socialist Europe. All public pools are always run with a big loss. People never realizes that the subsidized entry prices is coming from their own tax money.

Not saying it shouldn't be that way for a public pool, but tax financed businesses is almost always hugely ineffective.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

The plans for the new waterpark look great! Plopsaqua in Belgium is a pretty big success, so I suspected that there would be more of these waterparks. It'll be interesting to see how this one will turn out.

Are they any updates from the area around the SkyFly?

Still no sign of the new flat rides. Sometime in July apparently.

What are the seat belts like on Expedition Geforce? I'm a tight fit for the seatbelts (but not restraints) on Millennium Force, wondering if I have to worry if I plan an impromptu visit soon. I'm usually fine on most Intamins, it's only the seatbelts on the ones at Cedar Point that take some extra help from the operator.

I'm a big guy, and while the seat belts at CP were extremely tight for me (and sometimes needed op assistance on MF/TTD) the ones on EGF were not a problem.

Thanks for the reply! Hopefully I'll make it there in the next few months on a last minute flight!

Hey guys, I have a question for the die-hard Holiday Park enthusiasts out there. I'm sure this has been answered before somewhere and tried doing some searches to no avail.

Why exactly does Expedition GeForce run with the second-generation Intamin front zero car and front car, then the rest of the train with first-gen Intamin train cars?

Wave Swinger is already open, well "soft" open apparently. Without theming.
