Yeah that really seems like a strange place. If it weren't for seeing other coasters in the background you could have put photos from a bunch of parks together and it would have been as cohesive (especially with multiple of several ride types)

Feel free to correct me in the comments if you know what this routine is actually called.

That's called a diabolo!

And while I've seen some circus shows with interesting themes, a fabric/silks act (and contortion by the looks of one of the photos) seems a little bit strange for a viking show :lol:

"incoherent cacophany" is my new favorite catch phrase/band name. Well done on a mammoth trip report! The park was just so weird and off...I really wanted to like it more because I loved everything else about Poland. I'll certainly give it another try in a year or two (or when we're allowed to travel again!)

^And Nathan, I watched part of the viking show and you and I are WAY more advanced than any of the aerialists they had!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

He sure yo-yo'd the heck out of that yo-yo.

I'll be the commenter to correct you. ;)

It's a diabolo. I got gifted one at a European circus once and it was quite fun but the one they gave me seemed to be more used by pros that was quite heavy (as opposed to some kids plastic ones I've seen in toy stores) which lead to many injuries and notches chipped out of the ceiling when I (often) missed the throw or landing.

nice to see a report where trains are (for the most part) full and things are running like normal! Such a strange park, with what seems to be a killer top 5 on paper. I'm sure I'll get there eventually, hopefully Energylandia can be a better park.

While I wish it had been open for everyone else's sake, I was kind of glad that Zardoz wasn't ready yet, because I'm sure I would've ended up having to ride it once. :p


It is so, so weird.

And they have enough dragons at that park already, so a Zardoz-themed coaster would be kinda cool, except they'd have to use a knockoff Sean Connery.

"Cohesive" is a great word ... for what Energylandia isn't. :lmao:

Their autographed photo is probably already hanging up at the front gate. :p

Thanks for the quote and shout out, Andy--I love the detail in your report.

The three best things about Energylandia to me were:

1. Formula (great ride by Vekoma)
2. the napoleon cake
3. Hyperion (very good in the inside seats, not so good in the outside seats)

Sorry, I was so busy reading the report I completely missed there was another page of replies and the question had been answered.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great report! From the pictures, it looks like Zadra's area looks a bit better than the others, but I agree in general the theming looks like an incoherent mash-up.
