Ride Profile


After leaving the space-station queue line, guests board futuristic ride vehicles and are taken up the first lift hill. There is time to breathe in and enjoy the fantastic views before the first drop – a record-breaking 82 metres down at a breath-taking 85-degree angle. At the end of the descent, the train dips into a tunnel, which is located below ground level, at a top speed of 142 km per hour (incidentally, faster than the motorway speed limit in Poland). The 1,450 metre long track provides ample fodder for roller coaster fans and adrenaline junkies alike: the weightlessness, unexpected gravitational effects, and rotational slopes of the track combine for a heart-racing ride. There are unpredictable positive and negative load


factors as the train climbs hills, goes round corners and or plummets down. Before the vehicles brake for the end of the ride, riders will experience a final surprise: an automatically set water feature to finish the ride with a splash. The seat height and the raised seat position of Intamin’s state of the art trains mean that Hyperion’s riders’ feet do not touch the floor once they are seated, creating a unique experience of soaring through the air even for taller people. Each of the two trains seats 28 people, laid out in a configuration of 7 rows of 4 seats each, with the 2 inner seats raised. This creates a potential capacity of 1,500 riders per hour.


Behind the scenes To be classified a 'mega coaster' or 'hyper coaster', a ride must be at least 200 feet (61 m) tall. The term was first coined by Arrow Dynamics and Cedar Point in 1989 with the release of the first full-circuit hyper coaster in the world, Magnum XL- 200. Hyperion, which drops an amazing 82 metres, easily meets the criteria, and is the fastest and highest hyper coaster in Europe, putting Poland on the map for coaster fans. Appropriately, 'Hyperion' was one of the Titans from ancient Greek mythology. His name means ‘the high one’ and he was the father of the sun, the moon and the dawn. Construction began in October 2017, when the foundations


were laid out and the tunnel, which is eight metres deep and 20 metres wide, was excavated. One hundred people were involved in the coaster’s construction, working six days a week - specialised builders and engineers joined representatives from Intamin to work on one of the world‘s highest roller coasters. Elements of the ride itself were made in several European factories in Switzerland, Germany, Croatia and Slovakia. The first parts were delivered and installed in December 2017, and Hyperion's premiere took place on 14 July, 2018, when it joined the three Intamin water rides already in operation at Energylandia: water coasters Anaconda and Speed, and river rapids ride Jungle Adventure.


Hyperion’s premiere took place on 14 July, coinciding with the fourth birthday of the Polish amusement park. Celebrations continued throughout the weekend, with party favours, cake and champagne for visitors. Attractions stayed open until midnight, and Energylandia hosted a Foam Party for kids and a Beach Party for grown ups, located at the water park and featuring top DJs from the Energy 2000 clubs as well as the stars of the hit reality TV show Warsaw Shore.
