Holy cow, this looks amazing. Poland has always been on my bucket list ( I have relatives there) and this just puts it over the top. Now I just have to get past the language barrier. The only thing my Babushka taught me were curse words. Might come in handy riding this thing. Oh well. :?r

A huge throwback to the pre I305 era, hitting all the major boxes (big steep drop, ejector air, an inversion, twisty goodness, small pops, interaction with the paths, etc) in a more traditional way a la SFNE's Superman and Holland's Goliath. I love that. It looks like it hauls through the course, and I love the return leg, it reminds me of Fury. This is like a collective iteration of all of their previous models, which I think is awesome.

I'm so curious to hear how the 4-across trains ride. And I absolutely love that this coaster is going up in Poland, bringing another country into the "coaster big leagues". I was in Krakow in 2013 and was VERY pleasantly surprised. This is awesome.

F*** YEAH INTAMIN. Glad they went with the correct choice. I look forward to the Vekoma concept showing up somewhere, because I've wanted to see them try their hand at a sitdown hyper since around the time the GIBs were new- I'm sure it will, somewhere. Back to Energylandia, I visit Poland every so often, so this is very sweet news.
Been you to have any spike, man?

Luckily I live half an hour from Energylandia so I will check their new attractions as soon as they will be opened =)

Oh, this is really tempting. Back in 2006, I visited Poland, and went to Warsaw, Krakow, and Oswiecim, and had a great time. Well, I didn't really have a great time in Oswiecim, but it was one of the most worthwhile experiences I've ever had. No other museum is in the same league as Auschwitz-Birkenau; there's just nothing else like being in the place where it happened to make it all so real. The staff there do a tremendous service to the world maintaining that property and providing education on the darkest time of the 20th century.

On a lighter note, the castle in Krakow is just beautiful, especially the cathedral. Still have a few zloty from the trip!

I note that they actually used Gerstlauer Infinity track for the NL2 animation, do you think they'll go with a track style similar to that (with the new Taron-style track ties), or the XL double tube track (Skyrush, Flying Aces)?

Personally I'd be interested in wide Taron track, but I love the look of the modern track style, so either works for me!

It's hard to judge a coaster from a POV but I'm in love with this thing. It's a combination of traditional large hills and flowing elements (like early 2000's Intamin) with a couple of really fast, modern transitions and what look to be really powerful airtime hills.

It kind of seems like a Fury style coaster where it has a bit of something for everyone, but given the manufacturer I would expect it to have even stronger laterals and more powerful moments of airtime. This thing is pretty much guaranteed to be a home run.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Wow! Energylandia and Poland are now officially put on the rollercoaster map of the World. Even before this new Intamin, they were getting a pretty solid lineup, but this takes it to the next level.

Shut up. Seriously. It's a simulation, not every detail needs to be there. I know what you are speaking about but it does not matter. This is an awesome coaster coming to a new park in a country with practically no good rides. Look at what matters.
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.
