Energylandia On Track To Become Coaster Capital Of The World
For many years, Cedar Point and Six Flags Magic Mountain have battled for the highly-sought after record of having the most roller coasters in a single park. Currently, Cedar Point has 17, while Six Flags Magic Mountain has 19. An announcement this week by Poland’s Energylandia has put them in contention for the record.
The announcement came by way of a social media post indicating new Vekoma coasters for Energylandia in 2020 and 2021.
Abyssus is a Vekoma Double Launch coaster featuring four inversions scheduled to open in 2020. Construction is well underway.
The second coaster added for the 2020 season would be a Vekoma Family Boomerang-238m model. The coasters layout or name has not been officially revealed yet, but its said to have a height of 79 feet, a length of 780 feet, and top speed of 37.3 MPH. Below is an example of what a Family Boomerang coaster looks like.
The parks 2021 coaster is slated to be a 10 million euro Vekoma Mine Train similar to the one below.
The announcement was significant for a variety of reasons. First, it allowed Energylandia to surpass Cedar Point as the park with the second most number of coasters. Furthermore, the two new coasters will represent the seventh and eighth coasters Vekoma has manufactured for Energylandia, which would further increase the record of the largest number of collaborations between a manufacturer and a single park.
This is an incredible development for a park that opened with only three coasters in 2014. Since then, they have vastly expanded with numerous record breaking coasters. Below is a chart showing the insane rate at which the park has expanded. At the current rate, it’ll only be a matter of time before they overtake Six Flags Magic Mountain, as the coaster capital of the world.
