Over the last few years, I have watched Energylandia POVs longing to visit the park. This year, I finally booked the trip! I’m going to tell you about my thoughts on the park, some hints and tips, as well as cost and travel! 

The park opened in 2014 and since then has grown and now takes the crown for most rollercoasters in one theme park in Europe. But is it the king of European parks… that’s questionable. The park attracts 1.8 million visitors every year (numbers from 2021) and has over 150 attractions, including its impressive lineup of 15 coasters (soon to be 17!) 

As this was my first visit to the park, I had high hopes for my trip, the park certainly exceeded these! I really got the impression before visiting that the park was average and only worth a visit for the big-ticket attractions but not for much else. I really believe this is wrong! The park is clean, tidy, well run, good operations, and a very catchy soundtrack! Unlike a lot of parks, I have visited (I’m looking at you Merlin) the staff were friendly and seemed happy to work there. The park was spotless with not an overflowing bin in site (still looking at you, Merlin!) 

The park was beautifully themed with lots of gardens and flowers in bloom. Of course, this helps visit in the spring, but it makes a real change to grotty park surroundings. In a similar way to a Disney Park, nothing was out of place, and every corner was themed. As the park has only been open for 9 years, I get the impression that they have looked at other parks and seen what works and what doesn’t! Although they do have some questionable theming…

This is shown too in its operations. The way they load guests into the stations is fantastic (unless you choose the single rider’s queue by accident, so don’t do that!) The queue shows how many are allowed through to the station and only allows the correct number through. We don’t have this system in the UK, nor do I think anyone would listen to it, but in Poland, it works very well. 

Talking of operations, the park runs very smoothly, and they added extra trains throughout the day also. Although a lot of the rides didn’t exceed more than 20 minutes, and most were less than 10 minutes on for both days, we visited. Although the lines for some of the big rides had the longest walk, I’ve never experienced anything like the queue for (even more than Galactica!) Hyperion. You had to walk up and over several floors and back down into the station so if like me you get out of breath easy it’s not an easy one to ride continuously. The park also operates with a locker systems which also works very well but is a cost of 14 PLN/£2.70/€3.

Accommodations near Energylandia 

On the park map you can see that the park is building their own hotels. Because of this, you currently have to stay off-site. We chose to stay at Western Camp Resort, which is only a short walk to the park. There were several options for accommodations, but we chose to stay in a Western style wagon. It had 4 bunk beds, heating, toilets, and showers nearby and included bedding and breakfast each morning. It has everything you need for staying near the park. There is a restaurant on site and a shop just outside. The camp also includes a free land-train to and from Energylandia, which we used on the second day. The walk to the park is a little over 1km so after a long day it’s easier to take the train. For our stay at Western Camp for 3 nights including our breakfast we paid 867PLN which is around £165 or €193.

Getting to and from the park

If you don’t know already, I’m from the UK, so for me personally, I flew London Gatwick to Krakow. There are, of course, lots of airports all over Europe and beyond who will fly to Krakow or even Warsaw to get you to the park. 

We landed in Krakow around 9 p.m., so we chose to get an Uber to the Western Camp resort. This was around a 40-minute drive and cost us around 180PLN/£34/€40. This was our easiest option as we weren’t sure we would make it by train. We did, however, take the train on the way back to the airport. This was simple and a much cheaper option. We stopped in Krakow for some sightseeing on our way back, so our train tickets were slightly more at 12PLN/£2.20/€2.60 Zator to Krakow and 17PLN/£3.25/€3.80 Krakow to the airport. The airport station is called Krakow L which makes it harder to find on the train ticket app when searching airport. I used the KOLEO app to buy my tickets and check train times, another easy to use and you can just show a QR code to the conductor. Travel around Poland was easy and reasonable simple to navigate. If you are staying in Krakow, you can also take the Energylandia bus from the centre with a return at 45PLN/£8.60/€10.

Tickets to the Park

We decided to buy our tickets online in advance and take advantage of the 2-day pass offer. Our tickets cost 279PLN/£53/€62 each for two days and on the day, you can expect to pay 319PLN/£60/€71.


The park is home to over 150 rides, and they are dotted all over the park. By the second day I thought I’d seen the whole park but tucked away were more rides! It’s really a family park with things suitable for all ages including the thrill seekers (with plenty of benches for the designated bag holders!) There are many water rides as well as a singular dark ride called Monster House, which I don’t recommend riding if your short for time, but for a laugh I do. 

The park also has its own water park which I didn’t try out as we thought it would be too cold! It has a lot of flumes and pools to enjoy and with a two-day ticket you could certainly visit both the park and the water park. It’s included in the entrance price too which is nice.

Inside the park you can almost find one of everything including some fairground style rides such as a Booster and Space Gun (a pendulum ride). The Booster surprisingly had the largest queue all day out of all the rides in the park. There is also a 5D cinema with some questionable films and some stunt type shows. If you’re not afraid of heights you should defiantly ride their Big Wheel, its utterly terrifying but you get great views of the park!

Its also worth mentioning that their rapids ride(Atlantis) is so well themed its unbelievable. It looks like someone’s garden with a beautiful stream running through it!

Sweet Valley

Opening this year, the newest area, named Sweet Valley is almost complete. We were really hoping it would be open for our visit but peeking through the gates to the area we saw no one working and most things built, but still wrapped up in plastic. It was a little disappointing as the rollercoasters are just sat there ready to go. It will add two more credits and the first mine train coaster in the park. It will also mean you can walk through Sweet Valley from the Atlantis area making the park much more accessible as you currently must walk all the way around.

Food and Drink

Throughout the park you will find a lot of food and drink options by means of stands and shops but also restaurants and self-service. We didn’t spend much time in any of the restaurants as we wanted to ride everything, so we mostly ate from small stalls and shops. Here is a selection of the things we ate below. For those of you that have dietary requirements you can find a selection of food for you too! In regards to pricing, everything at the park was very reasonable.

Let’s talk Coasters (in order of favorite!) 


OK, so we all know why I visited Energylandia… of course to ride Zadra.

After riding Iron Gwazi last year, I was excited to see how Zadra compared! Well, it was a very close call, but it does come in second in comparison. If you’ve been lucky enough to ride both you’ll know why but Iron Gwazi beats it. I think the ride is a great asset to the park and overall, an incredible experience. If this was my first RMC, I know I would have been so blown away and it would have jumped straight to the top of my top ten.

If you haven’t ridden it, I do suggest jumping on a plane right now. The speed is phenomenal, with amazing airtime and hangtime, of course helped with the lap bar restraints. We rode front, middle and back and all three provided an individual experience. The front with the goggles (once you see the flies on them you understand why you need them!) And the unrestricted view from the top of the lift hill really adds the element of fear to the coaster. The middle provides a more even ride and although still amazing it feels less aggressive. The back however provides a pull through a wormhole experience, pulling what feels like unbelievable speeds almost leaving your body behind. I’m a speed lover so you’ll usually find me at the back of the train, so this was perfect for me. 


I am a massive fan of a hyper coaster, so Hyperion was a huge pull for me to visit the park. After my first ride I was particularly underwhelmed, but I sat in the middle of the train, and it was mid-morning, so we decided to try again later in the day. This is a coaster that you should queue for the front because the experience is totally different to anywhere else on the train. Again, with some fashionable googles the front provided a complete view from the top of the lift making it absolutely terrifying if you don’t like heights. The middle two seats are also suspended off the floor giving you free swinging legs which provides a freer like feeling whilst riding. In the afternoon this thing shines!! Our second ride was front row, and it was much better than earlier in the day. I really loved it but it’s not a top ten coaster (sorry Hyperion lovers!) The poppy airtime was fun, and the speed was great as well as the inversions. It reminded me of Silver Star at Europa-Park but with inversions. It does stand very impressively at the park entrance and can been seen from the Western camp resort. It does stand 1m taller than Shambhala at PortAventura, but the first drop is not as steep which in my opinion would change the ride for the better. 


Abyssus is the parks newest coaster (as Sweet Valley isn’t open yet), opening in July 2021. It’s a steel launched Vekoma coaster which is a great addition to the parks huge line up. I really enjoyed the ride and went back for several re-rides. Packed full of inversions and that impressive top hat plus reaching speeds of up to 60mph/99kmh, this is a fun coaster. It’s fast and has some great airtime and its pretty comfortable to ride. It’s certainly a great step-up coaster from kid’s coasters to a more thrilling ride. The theming is also good and fits in with the Aqualantis park area too. Its one not to miss on your visit, although I’m sure you won’t miss any of them if your counting credits!


I was nervous to ride this monster SLC after being stuck on The Oddessy at Fantasy Island (the chain lift broke and we were dangling for around 40 minutes on the lift hill!) But this ride was great and really took me by surprised as to how smooth it was. We got on expecting the restraints to be the usual ear smackers, but we’re surprised to see the newer type restraints which are much more comfortable. I think it is the most comfortable SLC In the world (well Europe for sure!) The track felt smooth and unlike other SLCs I have ridden I didn’t come off it and never want to ride one again (Blackpool Pleasure Beach please remove Infusion!). It was only running one train when we visited which made operations a little slow, but I can imagine the throughput is great when all three trains are in use. It was nippy and fun and of course at the back the pull was excellent. 


This coaster is one I’ve watched and watched and seen so many times as a POV and finally I got to ride it. I’m not great with vertical heights (you won’t catch me on a drop tower) so I knew this might be a challenge for me. The POVs really don’t capture how high Speed feels once you’re up that vertical lift hill. Of course, it’s only 50m (60m if you count the rest of the lift hill) so it’s not really that high in comparison to Zadra but going up vertically makes it feel so much higher. After you have ascended the rest of the ride is average but it’s still a great ride. The main thrill is certainly the lift hill and first drop and the cute log flume section before the lift hill.


Looking at this ride and the theming around it, including the restaurant, you’d think wow this is going to be great. Well, the launch is good but again it’s an average coaster. I did enjoy the experience, but it was very tame and needs the speed turning up a little to provide a faster experience. It is racing car themed so in turn I would expect some serious speed but 49mph/79kmh isn’t quite enough. The launch is quick and throws you straight into the first inversion, the sidewinder and follows some twists and turns. Its over quickly and on busy days I can see it getting quite a big queue.

Light Explorers

In the Aqualantis area you will also find this cute little boomerang coaster, Light Explorers. Like some of the rides at the park, it’s not easy to find the entrance as its tucked away around the side of a shop. You can see the ride from all angles in the area, but the entrance is a mystery.  The ride itself is a typical boomerang coaster and mostly over water, its very family friendly. I of course rode for the credit but other than that I would probably skip it entirely, unless you’re a big fan of boomerangs (which I’m not.) It does however interact with the other rides around it, but I really don’t think it fits in with the theme of the area.

RMF Dragon Roller Coaster

This suspended family coaster built by Vekoma is basic but it’s a great family coaster and would be great as another step-up coaster for younger children. Similarly, to Flight of the Pterosaur at Paultons Park in the Uk it only has lap restraints making for a more thrilling ride.

Other Roller Coasters

I’ve combined the remaining coasters as they start to get a little samey and are all very family friendly. There are few bits to highlight about some of them and one that I would recommend they dismantle immediately! There are eight coasters left to talk about, most of these are designed for small children. The park has a huge 15 (17 when Sweet Valley opens) rollercoasters but, they really have 8 rollercoasters suitable for enthusiasts.

I would mention that Frida, Energus and Boomerang are worth riding, maybe just for the fun factor but also for the credit. They are aimed at slightly older children and are still a laugh to ride.

Let’s talk about the awful Viking Rollercoaster. It’s a spinning Wild Mouse built by SBF Visa Group which in my opinion should be demolished immediately. If you want to feel pain and discomfort like no other than this is the ride for you. It was not fun, and I felt like I needed to lie down afterwards. Luckily, we didn’t ride this until almost the end as it had no queue, and I couldn’t help but wonder why.

Overall, I had a fantastic time at Energylandia and highly recommend a visit if you haven’t been before. The ride line up is impressive and its worth the trip alone for Zadra. The only thing I think the park is missing is transport within the park! It’s a huge amount of walking around and as the park is split down the middle divided by a road it feels like you have walked miles just to reach the far side. Although we are all very used to walking miles it would be a welcomed addition (I’m not sure where they would put it though!).
