Did we watch the same POV?? From the POV it sure seems like this ride still has some of the Vekoma roughness to it.

That being said, it could just be poor use of the camera, and mount... But it really doesn't look "very smooth." Either way, it looks awesome!

We're judging how smooth a ride is / whether or not it rattles from a POV? Seriously? :lol:

Could be worse... We could be judging how bouncy a ride is from it's POV. ;)

I come not only with a report, but a POV as well:



Is Lech Coaster smooth? Definitely. It has a slight rattle/vibrations, akin to some Intamin or B&M rides, but nothing really disruptive (for instance I got more annoying vibrations on Helix or Alpina Blitz than on Lech).
Then the layout itself is really, really smooth and flows so well. Not a single jerk. The pacing is also great and doesn't fade away toward the end as we could imagine from videos. No, even the pop to the brakes, or the tiny S-turn before that gives amazing EJECTOR.

And by ejector, I mean it. All the airtime in Lech Coaster is ejector. From the drop to the end. Only the sideway hill is more of a floater, but it's still frank. The inversion through the station is amazing and throws you out of the seat as well.

In hindsight, I have nothing negative to say about Lech. Maybe we can say the vest restraint is more restrictive than a lap-bar only, and that'd be true. But the vest was rather loose and did not press you too much on the collar bones, like B&M wing riders' and the older vest restraint trains from Vekoma do, I found. The bar keeps you firmly in your seat, tho, so those who like to have room for airtime might feel frustrated.

Other than that, the layout is great and varied, awesome pacing, nice lenght... Plus, the park gave it a really nice queue inside of the U-turn which give awesome interaction, and it also has a preshow with an animated short movie. There's a background music and employees have dedicated outfit. They really did things right!

By the way, if you don't dig tight harnesses, the park also got this Soquet looping coaster...

This is me being upside down without touching the bars at all (and yes, the harness is "closed". It can only lock at one position).

^ This review pleases me and rids me of some of my Vekoma apprehension. Thanks for writing this up! ...Now to get to Poland next year when that Intamin opens :airtimer:
