"Potential?" Yes, absolutely. Maybe not quite up to SkyRush, GeForce or I305, but up there with Superman Ride of Steel and Goliath for sure.

Thanks Robb. I'm considering it for a future trip, but perhaps I should wait a couple years to see what more they add. I still have yet to visit anything in Asia.

Wow, you had such a bad experience at the park, i'm sad to hear that the park got worse this year.

I visited the park one day during Hyperion's opening year and operations were really fast, sometimes hyperion had no line or maybe 5 minutes.. That ride became one of my favorite coasters. The first drop is unbelievable and that are many interesting moments and ejector hills, except the middle course hill which is pointless.. I liked it better than Geforce, Lech Coaster etc..But I rode it on a warmer day so maybe it was running faster. You had the possibility to store your items in the station and the rattling was very soft (just on the outer seats in the back) . I hope I won't change my mind next year when I visit the park again to ride Zadra!

Also, the kebab they sell is superb and BIG! Best kebab ever. You have to eat it if you go there.

I agree with the theming and the quantity over quality thing, they seriously need to get rid of those useless kiddie coasters and start to put less rides but with a better quality. Let's see what's next...

When there is noone in the line they are waiting for few more guests like any other park.

In fact I have not seen anyone including other RC bloggers/influences (call it how you want) complaining about operations in Energylandia that much. It simply does not look like you have wrote. It's weird noone else have experienced no-moving lines for all day long. I'd say you are exaggerating.

I am not going to tolerate someone telling me I am "lying" simply for reporting my experience at a park. Banned from our page. Take your stupid drama and agenda someplace else. It is not welcome here.
What is that? Can't people have different opinions than yours?

You weren't invited to the opening ceremony right?

^I think you completely missed the point. He wouldn't have been banned for having a different experience than Robb and posting his different thoughts, it's painfully obvious that the banning point was stating only one experience (his) is true.

I've never understood why so many of these get aimed at Robb/Elissa when they say they didn't have a good time somewhere or even just 'This was ok but not mind-blowing.' on a website that has Review in the title. I remember years ago Robb saying something about 'Baron was good but Lost Gravity was the surprise hit' of a previous Europe tour and people lost their minds. Now I see lots of good things about Efteling over their previous visit and Symbolica doing dark rides better than some of the biggest parks out there (Universal?) by using actual animatronics and there's not a word from those same groups.

It blows my mind even more when in the last few weeks I've seen TR's from other TPR members or twitter posts echoing Robb's experience and nothing has been said calling them out as also 'exaggerating.'

^Yes! Thank you!

^^I don't even know what this means? Perhaps a language issue?

Wojok told Robb his opinion and statement of facts about what we experienced at the park was wrong. Robb told Wojok to take his crap elsewhere.

This was not just a "Robb Alvey" issue. We had a group of 24 people at the park with us, and even the people who enjoyed the park/rides more than we did still agreed that there were a LOT of issues. In fact, the group (without the three Alvey's voting) voted to leave the park EARLIER than planned! I don't think we even mentioned that in the last however many pages of random crap! So it wasn't an issue that it was too crowded or anything like that, it was just a frustrating park.

I don't know what you mean about opening ceremony? Are you talking about Zadra? Do you think we would have flown back to Poland a month after not loving the park just for a new RMC? Look, RMC's are great and everything but they are pretty similar (think back to 90's B&M's) and I don't need to run out of my way to hit up a new one as soon as it opens.

We have good friends that went to Energylandia months ago and had almost none of our same issues. That's great! Good for them! I think it's important to report on ALL trips to the park so you know to expect an average of probably somewhere in between a great visit and our visit.

People are allowed to have opinions, that includes Robb and others...but you all have to respect each other's opinions!

Robb and Elissa have significantly more travel experience than I do, but having been to most of the parks in the U.S., and a good portion of Europe, I will not recommend a park if I have a poor experience. That does not mean I will not consider re-visiting over time, but I'll give an honest opinion.

I've been absolutely blown away by some of the European Parks (i.e. Europa and Phantasialand). However, last year I visited England, and had a very unpleasant day at Thorpe Park. I know many people love it, but my experience was highly frustrating.

I've gone pantless!

On the positive side, food service was very fast.


Oh, gawd, that stupid dark ride. I had one foot in the car and another on the "platform" (well, concrete slab) when the damn thing dispatched. Then we rolled around inside a warehouse full of static sets and statues, with some fog, lighting, and sound effects--and guns that may or may not have worked.

We did hit that restaurant at the right time, and lunch was pretty good.

Yeah, in all the discussions about crappy kiddie coasters and shoddy theming, it really shouldn't get lost as to just how awful that dark ride was. It wasn't just bad, it was world-class bad. Stacy and I kept trying to load in, and then the car would randomly move up a bit. We'd back up, walk over to it, try to get in again, and it would move forward again. I thought I was going to get get run over and lose a foot.

And then you've got Bazyliszek over at Legendia, which is the complete opposite experience in every possible way.

I like it, I may change it to "World Class Awful" when I write my Photo TR.
