Yeah it will get faster over time. Maybe they'll kick up the launch a bit too.

Yes, it would be nice to add Vekoma to the list of manufacturers that don't completely suck total balls. It's not actually a very big list at the moment.

Looks like a really solid ride, smooth, good inversions, compact, some airtime. Nice job Vekoma!

Should we make a thread on this? Have like a site-wide reference to companies that don't suck? It'd be a great flame-war along the way.
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

Ride looks good. I just wish they would have left off those confining vests. :geek:

I can't understand what they are talking about in the video but it looks like a fun ride. :)

^ You can imagine that they are reffering to coaster details, talking about the concept, and exchanging words after riding like "That was awesome!" in an American way lol!

New video of the ride with some great views and an interview with the park!



Also the park posted this on their facebook page! Looks like a new coaster for 2017 by Vekoma again!

Beloved, now we can unveil the mystery and reveal that next year you are preparing for several new attractions and surprises. One of them will be a new roller-coaster produced by the leader of the industry and our partner - the Dutch company Vekoma, which recently created a masterpiece among other things, such as the roller-coaster TRON, the most popular attraction of the new Disneyland in Shanghai.
Soon we pass you more details about our new signings and other attractions that are preparing for you next season. Now we can only quote the words of our friends from Vekoma .... "sell roller-coasters parks around the world ... to the Disney Theme Parks, Universal Studios, Six Flags and Cedar Point, but currently the fastest growing park in the world is not in the US, China, or in the Netherlands ... is here in Poland ... in Zator and called Energylandia! "

... We promise that in 2017 you will see that this is true :)

This "esthetic-looking" ride can also be a funfair coaster due to the moderate size! :D

It's in Poland. All Polish things are either immaculate-looking or like a Chinese tourist had its way with it.
