Thanks! This park is worth a visit just for Hyperion, but the rest of the park is also very nice.

Really enjoyed your reports on the Polish parks- I'll be visiting next summer, and I didn't think I could be any more excited for that than I already was, but here we are. Insane to consider that this park is only in the middle of it's crazy growth spurt. It reminds me of what is happening in China, only it's confined to one park. SFWoA over Poland.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

Great report Jordy - thanks for checking this park out for us - Hyperion looks amazing! :lover:

Looks like I will need to add a side trip to Poland when I finally get back to Germany.

I really love and miss Europe - can't wait to go back.

Thank you. I hope you have a great time in Poland next year!

It is indeed crazy how fast Energylandia is growing. This park only opened four years ago, which makes it even more remarkable. In 2020, when the new RMC and Vekoma Double Launch coaster will open, Energylandia will have one of the best coaster collections in Europe.

Thanks, Phil! Poland is definitely worth a visit while you are in the area. It is a lovely country with very friendly people, and they have some great coasters, too. ;)

Another great Photo TR. I'll add to the Park Index when I return from traveling next week.

Looks like Intamin is trying to claim the throne back as 'best manufacturer' (Although the hot weather may have helped).

Energylandia's (& this trip report of course ;)) is making it really tempting to make a quick trip to Poland, but looking at their current top three, it might be best to wait a couple more years (I'd be really amazed if they managed to pull of a RMC & a huge vekoma in two years).

How were the operation btw? Was there a fast pass option?

Thanks for the great trip report!

^Thanks! Operations at Legendia were a bit iffy, except on Lech Coaster. That crew was flying. Energylandia's operations were excellent, though. They also have a very efficient loading system, were at the end of the queue line there is a screen that tells you how many places are left for the next train. For example, if the screen says that there are only 2 places left in the next train, and the next group in line has 3 people, then they will let 2 people from further in the queue go first to fill the empty seats. It is surprisingly efficient.

There was a Fast Pass option at Legendia, but you probably won't need it. Energylandia doesn't have Fast Passes. If they did, I definitely would have bought it, since it was fairly busy and the park has lots of different rides. But I guess their loading system works so well, because they don't offer these skip-the-line passes..

Great report and really glad to know Hyperion lives up to the hype!
I definitely have to visit this park but maybe I'll wait for the RMC and vekoma launched coaster or whatever it is. It's amazing how fast this park is growing.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.
