Base of supports not good enough for anyone here?  Maybe the bottom of the track bring installed will set your whistle a bit more...

A gentle reminder that this is going to be enclosed by a tunnel too...

Energylandia have said on their Facebook that Hyperion will open with the rest of the park on April 2nd!

 

They've also posted more concept art, showing riders wearing OTSR...

Hopefully not indicative of the real thing...

 

Edit: Facebook translation is actually unclear.  The Facebook post might be saying Hyperion opens in 2018 season, which starts April 2nd.  Much confusion.  Standby for clarification...

Intamin Mega Coaster full of airtime moments with restraints that restrict air-time..

EDIT: Lets hope they the promo-art isn't a true reflection of the ride itself or this will be one of the biggest mis-fires since DBGT..

Aren't those Vekoma trains?

 

Surely the trains on this will either be Taron or Skyrush style?

 

I mean, guys, we're on a forum dedicated to a park that shows B&M restraints on Stealth as part of their marketing imagery... We know this sorta stuff (which is NOT concept art, but marketing imagery) is usually a load of balls...

I find it odd how this park constantly mentions ride manufacturers and roller coaster terminology which parks don’t bother with, yet they advertise an Intamin using Vekoma features.

 

I am used to seeing this with Thorpe Park and Alton Towers, but with a park that appears to care about telling the public about roller coaster manufacturers?

Bugger my bad; blame the tiredness...

 

Although, all major coasters in Poland have OTSRs, so not necessarily completely out the realm of possibility this'll have OTSRs.  Highly unlikely though, of course

I’m going to Energylandia this summer, and I just cannot wait to ride Hyperion and Speed. The space theming looks nice, and like Baron said earlier, I really hope, that they can pull it off. Speaking about their other planned coasters for the near future, I would actually love to see an Intamin Aquatrax, as I’ve never ridden one before. As I’m reading through all the posts right now, I’m actually kinda sad in a way, since I’ll now have to visit the park twice to get a ride on the upcoming RMC and their other coasters :(. If you guys would like, I’d be more than happy to take a couple of pics from my trip and post them on here

But building an Aqua-Trax makes the one in Korea less special [/mega-lite]

While I do agree with you on that, I still think that building one in Europe or even The Americas would be great, as people who can’t afford to travel long distances can get the chance to ride one. Of course, there’s plenty of other forms of water coasters, that I would prefer over an Aquatrax, but judging by the rarity of the type and Energylandia’s lineup, I think that it would be a great investment for the park

Oh I agree, just no one took my baited comment :(

I tried liking it, but internet in Germany said no.

 

So funnily enough, you can blame Phantasialand for that... ;)

Six consecutive posts in one thread is surely a new record for me...Guess I'm the only one excited HYPEd for this hear...

 

Anyways, more track:

And a slightly older visual showing how it's progressed:

Car park coaster </3

I believe that the final part of the coaster (ie the part that is on the car park in that visual) is being re-landscaped, and there'll be a pond / splash effect around that bit.  So makes it a bit better.

Just to interrupt the Baron’s streak...

 

Energylandia have announced that they plan to build some on site accommodation. “Western camp” will feature teepees, cabins and (a) restaurant(s). Looks good, but a proper hotel always appeals so much more to me than a holiday village type thing.  

 

This really shows their ambition for the future though:

Got excited at first because I thought it was going to be new Hyperion pictures.. :'(

 

I know the park have been planning accommodation, but I didn't realise they were getting this before a proper hotel.  The proper hotel, which will be Venician in style, is due for around 2020 I believe.

 

Lovely to see this get a theme and style; hope that translates into real life.  Especially since it's meant to open this year in time for summer and construction hasn't started.. Western isn't really my thing though, and a Venician hotel sounds amazing anyways.  Wonder what the prices for this will be...

 

But yeah, rapid expansion is rapid.  The park clearly are setting themselves up for the future.  They've got rich people behind the scenes too, so when the EU subsidiaries stop coming in, they should be more than a good enough situation to continue development and bring in visitors, and money, for years to come.

Poor quality Hyperion pics shamelessly stolen from some guy over at CoasterForce:

 

(Is this meant to open in the summer; because I really can’t see that happening?)

All that's been said is opening 2018.

 

It's weird because the park have done work in extremely cold temperatures (-5 degrees) and at unfavourable times (Christmas Eve / Christmas Day seemingly).  So if they're working actively at times like that, you'd expect things to progress quickly, yet things are going slowly.  God knows why frankly.

 

I still expect it to open this year, probably around July and August so they can capitalise on summer.  More importantly, if they don't open it this year, they'll lose funding or backing or something, as well as some support / trust from the government, which the park really don't want.
