abyssus energylandia aqualantis

Abyssus is a double-launched steel roller coaster. It was manufactured by the Dutch company Vekoma and put into service in Energylandia on July 14, 2021. Abyssus is located in the Aqualantis zone and is its flagship attraction. It is one of the best, fastest and longest roller coasters in Energylandia. Its parameters are second only to Zadra and Hyperion. In my personal TOP 10 ranking of Energylandia’s best attractions, it occupies a high third place!

Description of the Abyssus ride

After leaving the station, the train stops for a moment next to the siding. After a while, it is fired for the first time using the LSM drive. Turns right 180 degrees, then spiral left 270 degrees, slalom, then turn 180 degrees, then take a slight slope.

After this relatively quiet warm-up sequence, the Abyssus train enters the main and very long LSM drive, where it is recharged to a speed of up to 100 km/h. After acceleration, the train climbs the main hill, 38.5 meters high, from which it goes down 40 meters. It then traverses the loops, turns left 90 degrees, and runs through a double batwing inversion.

After overcoming two inversions, the cable car goes up an S-shaped hill, a straight hill with very pleasant negative overloads, and turns 180 degrees to the right. Then he performs the only corkscrew, turns 90 degrees to the left, drives the next hill with the feeling of tearing out of the chair with a simultaneous tilt to the right.

Finally, the Abyssus turns 270 degrees to the left and 90 degrees to the right and brakes. After turning right, it returns to the station.

My personal experience during the Abyssus ride

Abyssus ranks third in the TOP 10 best attractions in Energylandia. Abyssus definitely gives way in height to Hyperion and Zadra, but a lot is happening there. We only have a moment of rest in the first sequence, where we cover a few turns and hills at a relatively low speed. Good fun begins after the second acceleration. A very pleasant descent from the main peak, three upside down loops, numerous hills on which we are torn off the chair and a very pleasant corkscrew. All of this makes Abyssus not boring, but also not as extreme as Zadra. The ride is intense and enjoyable. It provides adrenaline, but does not scare you. I highly recommend Abyssus to all of you who love the Formula roller coaster.

How long is Abyssus waiting for?

Due to the availability of Abyssus from 120 cm tall, it is in fact the strongest attraction for kids from 6-7 years of age. For this reason, in the season on Abyssus there can be very large queues with waiting times of up to 40-60 minutes. However, in early summer there should be no large queues and after a maximum of 10-20 minutes we should pass the Abyssus ride.

If during the holidays we really want to ride the Abyssus, let’s go on it after opening, until about 12 o’clock. We can then count on a small queue, and even entry without waiting. I must also add that there aren’t any shelves at Abyssus Station to keep items from your pockets. There is no big problem for employees on their chairs to keep a cap or glasses, but recently they have been having a problem with keeping phones. Therefore, I strongly encourage you to hide all your belongings in the deposit lockers, so that you do not have any unnecessary items at the station. And of course, under no circumstances should you ride the cable car with your phone in your pocket!

The entrance to Abyssus is almost at the end of the Aqualantis zone. You have to go to the main central square of the zone and turn right (next to the Hall of Columns restaurant). On the right side where you can see the two Abyssus loops is the entrance to the roller coaster.
