Park News - (12/29/20) Energylandia Fast At Work On Yet Another New Coaster (MORE...)
(5/18/20) Energylandia has posted a video showing off the changes now in effect at the park since it reopened over the weekend. In addition to temperature screening, it also looks like they are using drones to help spread spray down and sanitize large areas, virtual queues, online food ordering and more.
2021 - Abyssus / Aqualantis - Under Construction - (2/9/21) Energylandia has released an official POV video of their new Abyssus launched roller coaster from Vekoma. The park has also released a video of their new Light Explorer coaster testing as well as a more detailed video showing off the theme of the new Aqualantis area of the park, describing the other new rides and attractions that will be part of Aqualantis. Check them out below!
(2/7/21) A video showing off a train making a test run on Abyssus at Energylandia has been posted to Twitter. Check it out below. As I commented on social media at the time, I have been so very impressed with the creativity of Vekoma over the past few years, coming up with some fantastic looking coaster designs. After decades as being the coaster company known for producing a near endless series of roller coaster clones rather than unique layouts, I can only hope that we see some of these new creations come to the US in the near future.
(8/24/20) Aerial footage showing off the new Abyssus coaster at Energylandia making a test run can be seen below.
(3/11/20) Some great new pictures of the new Abyssus coaster (Vekoma) going up at Energylandia have been posted to Twitter this week.
(1/24/20) A fantastic new photo of the new Vekoma coaster going up at Energylandia can be found below.
(11/6/19) A few more details and some new concept art for the Aqualantis expansion coming to Energylandia in 2020 can be found over at ThemeParks-EU this week.
(10/29/19) A fun post to Facebook shows off a bunch of new additions slated to come to Energylandia in 2020 as part of the greater Aqualantis project. This includes a name for the new Vekoma double-launched coaster, which will now be called Abyssus. In addition to the new coaster the images show some kind of new “Slow Boat Ride”, a pirate themed “Whirlpool Water Fight” ride, a Disk’O Coaster, a high-dive show, plus new restaurants and shops.
(9/21/19) According to a post by the ECC, the name of the new Shockwave model coaster from Vekoma opening at Energylandia in 2020 will be Aqualantis. The five inversion coaster is shooting for an April 6th opening date at this time.
(9/2/19) A great piece of concept art showing off the new Vekoma ‘Shockwave’ coaster design coming to Energylandia in 2020 was posted on Twitter by the ECC. Check it out! With the early opening of Zadra just this past week, the addition of Shockwave as well is going to give this park an incredible 2020 season as they are quickly on their way to becoming the coaster capital of Europe.
(12/29/18) The latest rumors from Energylandia claim that Zadra was pushed ahead to open in Fall 2019. The rest of the themed land and other attractions around it (like the Preston & Barbieri kiddie coaster) will stay with the proposed Spring 2020 opening, and this includes the rumors of a Vekoma Launched Coaster.
It may be a new custom creation that may include some of the features of the Shockwave layout, but enhanced to include a launch out of the station into a new first half of the ride experience and into a second launch section to push the train even faster through the second half of the ride which would include the taller ride elements and sections more like the Shockwave layout.
2021 - Vekoma Mine Train Coaster - (12/29/20) Oh Energylandia… I have never in my life seen a park build new coasters at such a furious pace as this new park in Poland has done since opening in 2014. In just six short years the park now has 15 roller coasters and currently has three more set to open in 2021. If they keep them all, that will make 18 coasters in one park, just one shy of the record holder, Six Flags Magic Mountain in California who has 19.
Most eyes have been focused on the park’s new Abyssus coaster opening in 2021 from Vekoma, there are actually two other Vekoma coasters set to open later in 2021 now under way. There is the “Light Explorer” which is a Vekoma Family Boomerang coaster which has been entirely built, with crews focused on building up the theming and infrastructure around it. Crews are also now hard at work installing the track and supports for the unnamed Vekoma Mine Train coaster next door to Light Explorer, which you can see in the aerial pictures tweeted below.
As previously rumored, this does indeed look to be a new custom layout Vekoma Mine Train, though it clearly will still have the two side-by-side lift hills that may of their other mine trains featured, but previous statements also indicated that this mine train would be even bigger and feature a third lift hill as well.
(7/14/20) A collection of photos posted to Facebook on the European Coaster Club page show a collection of bright red new coaster track is now on site at Energylandia. Based on the appearance, this looks quite a bit like Vekoma track and looks quite similar to the red Mine Train Coaster track Vekoma posted about on their Instagram a few days ago, claiming it would have three lift hills.
(3/7/20) According to a tweet from the European Coaster Club, Vekoma has announced that they are already working on building yet another roller coaster for Energylandia. It’s been awhile since our long-term rumors for Energyland were updated, but back in late 2018 were had heard the park was planning to add another Vekoma as early as 2022, but looks like these plans may have slipped forward to 2021. One of the popular rumors at the time was that Vekoma was working on a next-gen of their Tilt Coaster concept.
(12/29/18) An unknown Vekoma coaster project is expected in 2022, but could possibly slip to 2023 depending on what happens between now and then. What could it be? I’ve heard rumors of Vekoma working on a next-gen Tilt-Coaster concept that could be a contender for this particular slot along with a second rumor claiming some kind of water coaster concept could also be in development.
2021 - Light Explorer & Stormy Ship - Confirmed - (10/28/20) According to Themeparks-EU two new attractions for the new Aqualantis area at Energylandia are slated to open in 2021: Stormy Ship (Zamperla Rocking Tug) and Light Explorer (Vekoma Family Boomerang Coaster). The new Family Boomerang coaster would be in addition to the previously discovered but unnamed Vekoma Mine Train coaster also coming in 2021.
