Energylandia food prices:
The prices at Energylandia are surprisingly not too expensive for a theme park. Yes, they are more than what you would usually pay in Poland for a meal, but it’s less than in the UK if you were visiting a theme park there. It costs around 35zl (£6.30) for a big margarita pizza, but it’s enough to share between two people.
The drinks are what I found the most expensive – it was around 6zl (£1) just for a bottle of water and 10zl (£1.80) for a coke – still not too expensive, but you will get really thirsty walking around a lot.
You can also bring food into the park as they don’t check the bags, so I really recommend bringing some in a backpack if you want to save money.
Energylandia opening times:
What are the Energylandia opening times? The opening times at Energylandia are always changing depending on the season and events that are on. Generally, in the summer months (end of July – August) it is open from 10 am to 8 pm. On some select dates in the summer, the park stays open until 11 pm but check beforehand.
Usually, the park is closed in November, January, February, March and some dates in April. In December, the park is also closed on some dates, but they have a Winter Kingdom event, meaning the park is open on these dates.
Energylandia water park:
When visiting, don’t forget to bring your swimsuit as there is also a fantastic water park! Lockers and changing rooms are provided all around the waterpark, as well as showers to clean yourself before entering the water.
There are around 7 water slides in total, such as Tiki Fun, RMF Maxxx Kamikaze and Twister. Many of the slides have the option to ride with two people, which makes everything better.
There are also shallow pools and some deeper ones if you prefer to just take a dip before heading back onto the rides.
Every day, there are lots of different shows to watch to suit every taste. Some of the shows that are on at Energylandia are the: Aqua Show, Talent Show, Extreme Energylandia, Circo De La Luna, Fire Show and plenty more!
I really enjoyed Extreme Energylandia as it was great to see all the talented drivers with their vehicles, and they even came and signed autographs afterwards.
Later on, I also watched the Lost Island show, and even though it was in Polish (and my Polish is not very good), it was still fairly easy to understand what was happening. It was very nice to watch, and the people in the show were all very talented.
I personally loved visiting this theme park! I’m not really a roller coaster person…or so I thought until I visited. It was very easy to get to from Katowice and only took about an hour. I arrived a few minutes before the park opened, which was great because it meant I didn’t have to queue once the rides were officially open.
I first bought a wristband for the lockers – these are such a great idea. It means you can drop off your bags before the ride and pick them up after, ensuring they’re safe and secure. It costs 10zl, and it’s worth it.
Next, I went to the back of the park and went to Zadra. If you want to avoid the queues, this is a major tip you should follow, as most people will start from the front of the park and get on the first ride they see.
What’s really useful is that there are also a few boards dotted around the park that show the waiting time for each ride, and it’s accurate too! Surprisingly, the longest time I had to wait for a ride was only 5 minutes – and I went in July when it was the school holidays.
The waterpark was a great place to relax for an hour from the rides, and there were lots of sunbeds to lounge on if you didn’t feel like swimming.
In Poland, it’s important to remember that most people eat dinner around 3 pm, so the restaurants on site can get really busy at these times – but it’s the ideal time to go on the rides.
One thing that I didn’t like is that the toilets were sometimes not very clean, which was a little bit off-putting but this isn’t the park’s fault. I also found that the drinks were quite expensive, so if you want to save money, bring some with you. I felt that a lot of the merchandise was very overpriced, but this is typical for a theme park.
