HistoryEdit

Energylandia opened on 14 July 2014. During its first year, it had three roller coasters: the Frutti Loop Coaster, Mars, and the Viking Roller Coaster. In 2015, three more roller coasters opened. These include the Energuś Roller Coaster (a Vekoma Junior Coaster), Roller Coaster Mayan (a Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster), and Dragon Roller Coaster (a Vekoma Suspended Family Coaster). In 2016, the park opened Formuła, a launched roller coaster manufactured by Vekoma.[4]

In October 2016, the park announced three new roller coasters to open for the 2017 season.[5]. The park also announced plans for a new mega coaster that would open for the 2018 season.[6] In October 2017, the name of the new mega coaster was revealed to be Hyperion.[7] In addition to Hyperion, the park opened an Intamin water coaster named Speed in 2018.[8]

In October 2018, the park announced plans for Zadra, a Rocky Mountain Construction roller coaster planned to open in 2020.[9]
