How to check the waiting time on attractions in Energylandia?
Virtually every person going to Energylandia asks himself whether there will be queues, and if so, how long. At the outset, I must admit that it is impossible to predict exactly whether there will be big queues tomorrow, whether they will be and how long this weekend will be. You can adopt some rules that make it easier to determine the potential waiting time, which you can read about in the entry When are there the least people in Energylandia? However, it is worth getting to know two reliable ways by which we can find out how much is waiting for attractions in Energylandia. Here they are.
Screens in Energylandia
Throughout Energylandia, there are many boards with screens presenting the current waiting time for the most popular attractions. The first such screen can be seen on the right, in front of the entrance gates to the park in Zator.
The next ones can be found next to Energuś, in front of Formula, in front of the entrance gate to Sweet Valley, Dragon Town and Aqualantis. And also behind the Dragon Castle in front of the Frida roller coaster, in Fairytale Land and several other places. The screens show a list of about 30 of the best attractions in the park, along with indicative waiting times.
The word “indicative” is here in place, because the real waiting time in the queue was often 5-15 minutes more than on the above screens. There are several reasons. If it displays 10 minutes on Hyperion, we go to the queue, and then stand in it for 25 minutes, it may mean that people are more crowded in the queue. Either only one train of the queue is in motion, or the addition of a second train or the removal of an additional train is in progress. Of course, we will be informed by the sound system about adding / removing an additional train. It is a clear signal for us that the waiting time will be longer than that indicated on the screens.
Wait timers before the attraction
Near each entrance to the attraction there are small LED displays, which show the approximate waiting time for a given attraction. The rules for calculating and verifying this time are the same as on the summary screens.
What does the number 310 on the time counters in Energylandia mean?
If you see the number 310 in the Energylandia application or on the displays at the entrance to the attraction, it means that the device is not available at the moment. It may be caused by unfavorable weather (storm, heavy rain, strong wind), failure of attractions, or other event that prevents the starting of the roller coaster or attractions.
Waiting time on the sidewalks
There are waiting times painted on the sidewalks in front of most popular attractions. Also indicative. If we go to RMF Dragon, let’s look down. Every dozen or so meters the path will be marked with 30 minutes, 20 minutes, 10 minutes. They also tell us how much we will queue up.
However, as in the case of screens, it is enough to have a greater crowd of people in the queue and we will stay longer than the information on the path. In the case of lower density, the queue should go faster than the time painted on the sidewalks.
Unfortunately, the waiting time for attractions does not take into account the number of trains in motion. Before going on the rollercoaster, it is worth checking whether there are two or one trains on the track. Among others, on Hyperion, Zadra, Formula, Abyssus or Mayana, with a large number of people, another train is delivered. This is easy to see from the time intervals between the cable car leaving the track and the one that has just finished. If the train with people on Hyperion has just stopped, and after a dozen or so seconds another one goes up the hill, it means that there are two in motion. On the other hand, if a few minutes pass after stopping the cable car, there is only one train in motion.
And so: in the case of two queues, the waiting time may turn out to be even shorter than that indicated on the tables. One usually takes more than the screens show.
How to check the waiting time in the Energylandia application?
Another reliable way to check waiting times to attractions is to install the official Energylandia app . The official Energylandia application can be downloaded from the Google Play store (for Android devices) or the App Store (for iOS devices).
After launching the application, all you need to do is go to the map at the bottom, and then filter only the attractions, so that it is easier to find those that interest you on the map.
Now all you have to do is choose a specific attraction. The current waiting time will be displayed in the panel at the bottom of the screen. Wait times are not shown for all attractions , but we will calmly check information about queues for all popular roller coaster and carousels.
The application will be useful to us in two cases. First of all, we don’t have to look for screens in the park. At any place and time, we can look at the phone, check the waiting time and plan the next attractions we are going to.
In addition, a few days before our planned trip to Energylandia, we can check the waiting times every day at different times of the day. Thanks to this analysis, we will be able to mentally adjust to whether there will be large queues during our presence in the park. In addition, it is worthwhile to click through various attractions at different times of the day. On this basis, we will be able to plan the order of completing the attractions that we care about the most.
