Great shots! I particularly love the US flag in the last shot even though this is in Poland.

They put up that flag while we were there. I think they also put up a Poland flag right behind shortly after this picture was taken.

Yep. EU also, which makes sense, considering they basically own the place.

Energylandia have released a POV video of Zadra, which looks AMAZING... but....

the park has chosen to call this a "Wooden" roller coaster and take the claim of the #1 wooden roller coaster. What do YOU all think? Should this 100% steel-tracked ride be considered a "wooden" roller coaster? Not even Six Flags, who came up with the "combined speed of these two trains on the track" fake marketing have tried to claim that their wood structure/steel tracked RMC coasters are 100% "woodies."

Just one more thing I don't like about this park...

Here's the POV video. Ride looks good!

I don't really get this move. Even if you would WANT to try making an argument about how RMC has blurred the lines a bit with what qualifies as a wooden coaster, there is a clear-cut difference between the assembly styles of their wooden coasters and I-Boxes like Zadra.

It's also not like there isn't like there isn't already a standard practice established from well over a dozen RMC coasters already in operation on which this park could base its marketing. Ride does look amazing, though.

Looks like a great steel coaster to me.

Also looks pretty different from other RMCs. The focus is more on speed and twisty elements than it is on nonstop airtime.

Wow this thing really holds its speed well into the brake run.

I'm curious what your overall opinion on the park was. With all the new additions it seemed like a park to travel for but it seems a lot of the TPR members who visited had mixed feelings. It's quite out of the way for people to get to as well so reviews aren't too common.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

They may be using "#1" in their marketing with regard to the ride's records... tallest, fastest, etc hybrid and / or wooden coaster.

It does look pretty phenomenal, and congrats to the park for persevering and getting it done even after the collapse. It's a huge accomplishment and they're obviously proud of it! However, it won't get me back to Energylandia on its own.

I've been reading some comments about Zadra possibly being the best roller coaster in Europe. What is generally accepted as the best in Europe right now, anyway? Wildfire? Expedition GeForce? Helix? I haven't been on Expedition GeForce but Zadra does at least look like it's on the same level as Wildfire, at least, and perhaps a little bit better than Helix. You can't beat Wildfire's setting though which would give it the edge for me over Zadra...

Just so our stance is clear, Zadra will be listed as a steel coaster on future TPR Coaster Polls, much like the other Rocky Mountain I-Box installations.

The claim on #1 woodie bothers me a bit more than it should. I used to think 6F was pushing it with their records but I can see Goliath still being a woodie, no problem. This is definitely hybrid though (or, if pushed, just totally steel). The ride looks FANTASTIC, though! I'm surprised it takes all the elements so fast.
