    I guess switching from a laughing-stock to an amusement park shouldn't be that big a step for Bailey

    A US entrepreneur is considering expanding an amusement park business across Poland, having launched a flagship venue in Warsaw this autumn.

    “I knew Poland very well and I thought it was a good idea to open a fun park here,” Bailey told the Puls Biznesu daily.

    “I wanted to bring over tried and tested examples from America and Sweden,” he said.

    Bailey's Warsaw venture, Fun Park Digiloo, is now up and running in the capital's Mokotow district.

    “If the business is a success in Warsaw, we're not ruling out building a network taking in the biggest cities across the country,” he said.

    “We are considering Wroclaw, Krakow and Gdansk,” he revealed.

    “Even in the crisis, birthday parties are becoming increasingly popular,” Bailey concluded.
