In 2015, the Slovakian company Tatry Mountain Resorts acquired Silesian Amusement Park. They renamed the park "Legendia" and modified many of its existing attractions. The park is now themed to "Legends".

History edit

In 1956, construction of Silesian Amusement Park started. It opened in 1959.

In 1985, a Ferris wheel named “Gwiazda Duża” was installed (now Legendia Flower).

In 2013, 26 rides were bought from Denmark's Sommerland Syd.

In 2015, Tatra Mountain Resort became a new investor in Silesian Amusement Park. It planned to invest PLN 117 million into the park.

In 2017, because of change of layout and attractions, the park changed its name to Legendia Śląskie Wesołe Miasteczko.

On 1 July 2017 Lech Coaster opened as the tallest, longest and fastest roller coaster in Poland. Hyperion at nearby Energylandia has since broken these records.
