Day two saw us visiting the biggest park of the trip, Energylandia

Energylandia photo

We had a group photo beside the Energylandia sign ... which would have been fine, if it wasn't also a bog!

Hyperion ERS

The day started with an hour long ERS on Hyperion

The ride was definitely a hit with most of the group

Formula

Formula, a new generation Vekoma Space Warp coaster, was surprisingly good

Energylandia cakes

Cakes and doughnuts at Energylandia were superb!

Energylandia Zadra RMC construction

Energylandia are currently building Zadra, a hybrid coaster from RMC which will open next year

Jungle Adventure

Jungle Adventure is the better of the two rapids but still not amazing (yes, two rapids ... more on that later!)

Energylandia lockers

Energylandia's locker system works well: For 5 PLN (about £1) you get an all day wristband which you scan at each set of lockers. This automatically opens a locker for you, then at the end of the ride you re-scan your wristband (often from the other side of the bank of lockers) and the door will reopen. The wristband works for all lockers in the park. Annoyingly, you have to remember roughly what number locker is yours, as the barcode scanners will only open lockers near to them, which I guess is good for security.

Lunch

We had lunch in the Royal Restaurant ... so much better than most theme park food!

Atlantis

Atlantis was Energylandia's first rapids ride - it's pretty terrible for a major water ride so following the opening of Jungle Adventure, this one has been delegated to family-friendly status

Boomerang

Boomerang, the park's Vekoma Family Boomerang, had some nice theming

Security

Security by Segway!

Prince of Magic

The Prince of Magic show was disappointing - there were too many mistakes to make the illusions believable

Stunt Show

The stunt show had some fiery moments!

Stunt Show

This little kid stole the show

Restaurant

After a busy day at the park, we went out to dinner at this fantastic restaurant in Oswiecim

Cocktail

Cocktail? Don't mind if I do!

More fabulous food
