I've heard people compare Lech coaster to an RMC, but for me it gave more of an "old school B&M" vibe. That is a good thing, as I like those types of rides. It basically felt like Kumba with few airtime hills mixed in.
However, i did not think it was the best coaster in Poland. I preferred Hyperion. Lech Coaster was second best of me, and I would love to see more of these.
I feel like I need to weigh in here and I have some street cred. After all, don't forget, that if you name a character after me in Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, it will go around saying how much she wants to ride an Intamin ride.
That being said, I rode and enjoyed Lech Coaster a TON more than Hyperion. I wanted to love Hyperion more than anything and anybody, but I just couldn't. It was way too 'vibraty'. It gave me a headache after one ride. Then the next day I went and freakin marathoned the Vekoma ride!?!
If anyone had ever told me this would ever happen I would have called them crazy and walked away after rolling my eyes.
Now, I fully believe that if the park took better care of Hyperion it could give some AMAZING rides and probably be tied with Lech Coaster in my eyes for "best coaster in Poland", but I've always believed in judging a ride fairly and not by "the omg best night rides" or "after it's warmed up all day" or "at this enthusiast event you can ride it three times in a row", you have to judge it by how it normally delivers. I have friends that I trust their opinions and they say they had great rides on it. That's awesome, but I have to judge it by the rides I took.
Let's remember that it's kind of cool that Poland now has a kick ass RMC, Vekoma, and Intamin when five years ago they basically had NOTHING!!!

I actually didn't know that. That makes you a legend.

I recall hearing somewhere that Vekoma's "traditional" coaster backlog is almost exclusively for Fantawild theme parks for at least the next few years.
