I'm guessing their roller coaster(s) are made by Pax. Just a wild guess...

Looking at their web site, this park is hardly lavish by US standards. A dozen or so flats, several of them juniors, a small log flume, a Zierer family coaster, and a few other attractions. More like some of the small parks that you find at the beach.

$600,000,000 ?

Off with the trims!
