Photo TR Legendia (Poland)


Recommended Posts

Please check out this photo trip report of the Polish theme park "Legendia". This theme park is located in the Silesian City Park in Chorzów near the border with Katowice. The theme park itself opened in 1959 as Śląskie Wesołe Miasteczko which can be translated as Silesian Happy Town in which Silesian refers to the name of the region. All rides are located around a lake in the middle of the park. A tram stop is located In front of the entrance gate, so the park can be easily reached by public transportation.

 

In 2015, the park was sold to the Tatry Mountain Resorts group, who invest PLN 117 million over the upcoming years to revamp this historic city theme park. This year the name of the park is changed to Legendia. New for the 2017 season is the "Lech coaster", which is at this moment still the highest, fastest and longest roller coaster in Poland. Beside opening this new Vekoma coaster, the park also refurbished / re-themed a lot of their older rides, created a new entrance street and invested a lot in new pavements and landscaping throughout the park.

 

The park has a nice mix of (older) thrill and family rides. Beside the new Lech coaster, there is an old Socquet double loop coaster and two Pinfari Zyklon coasters.

Awesome report! All the talk about this park has been about the new coaster, so it's nice to see a bit of what the actual park looks like. Some of the areas look really nice! I plan to make the trip down here next year when the new Intamin hyper opens at the Energylandia, as the parks are only an hour apart.

 

Thanks for sharing!

I'm glad to see the new theming! The park looks so much nicer with all of it, especially the entrance area and some of the rethemed flats. Glad to be going there soon.

 

Thanks for the pictures!! Looks like a nice little park. The new coaster is beautiful, but I'm also intrigued by the double loop. Is it Schwartzkopf?

 

It's Socquet, a french ride manufacturer.

there is an old Socquet double loop coaster and two Pinfari Zyklon coasters.

Oh man! That's the old Lightwater Valley/American Adventure coaster! It looks like they still have the backwards facing seats in the last car, too!

This is nuts! I just figured out, my penpal of some 50 YEARS (!) lives in Zabrze with her immediate family.

 

And this park is a drive and a bit, to get to it?

 

 

I am shocked. I did not know Legendia was so very close to my penpal.

We could have ridden rides there, decades ago!
