    Inversions Masterpiece Smoothness

    Lech coaster is a firm statement from Vekoma that their newer manufacturing techniques can land knock out blows on rival manufacturers. At the cost of what some parks would use to deploy an extensive flat ride or small scale dark ride, Legendia have worked with Vekoma to produce an incredible value for money Bermuda Blitz model. A turning point for the park in terms of theming, Lech is not only the headlining ride of the park, but also makes swift work of trumping the much newer Hyperion at nearby Energylandia. It’s the pinnacle statement from Vekoma that their new track and trains are leagues ahead of their previous efforts. Lech makes all B&M wing coasters feel like cheap, Pinfari rattle traps. The entire ride is smoother than silk, traversing its layout like an ice skater gliding across black ice with a degree of courage, ferocity but also a dash of grace as well. It pulls you down its first drop with a great deal of airtime, especially towards the back, before blitzing straight into the sidewinder. Lech ventures into i305 territory for its intense exit to the sidewinder, inducing varying levels of grey outs. Yet following straight on from this, an elegant turn over the lake before pulling through a roll directly over the station roof. The transition is so smooth you simply can’t feel it occurring, almost as if being inverted by magic. The following sections right up to the on-ride photo are carried out addictive speed and demonstrates no signs of stopping, effortlessly tumbling you through the final corkscrew with a delightful decorum. Even after this, Lech still refuses to lose any steam, traversing an outward banked dive and a series of sweeping turns back to the brake run. Even the ending is done with such smoothness that it’s difficult to comprehend it just happened. Lech is everything a great roller coaster should be. The pacing is consistent and continuous, keeping you hooked high on its ecstasy as it shows you what Vekoma’s modern engineering is capable of. An airtime machine combined with inversions that have been seemingly crafted by mythical gods of the roller coaster world, all whilst doing so in a quiet and humble manner. It doesn’t look intimidating, nor does it look timid. Lech strikes the finest palette taste for roller coasters; a catalyst for some of the best things you could ask for on a coaster. The trains are comfortable and well built. Whilst there is room for improvement in perhaps the unnecessary need for the vests, they’re hardly offensive when compared to those of B&M’s wing coasters, and the theming shows that Legendia have the ability to leave their fairground heritage in the past and continue to craft well designed experiences.

    Theming Masterpiece Layout

    Absolutely Epic Ride! Great theming, great 1st drop, love the barrel roll through the station, unbelievable views and basically no queues. Also Re-rides are allowed. Managed 8 rides on the coaster and 6 in a row. Rode it in the day and dark and its fantastic.

    Airtimes First Drop Masterpiece Intensity

    An absolutely wonderful coaster. The first drop is insane in the back left seat and the rest of the layout is a fast paced series of high positive Gs, ejector airtime and cool inversions. The track is glass smooth and restraints are very comfortable. The only problem with Lech is that an average person might find it a bit too intense (many people report graying out right after the first drop or the dive loop).

    A wonderful new compact design from Vekoma! The first drop, which seems to go directly into the park sea is wonderful, the restraints are the best Vekoma ever made and the ride itself is very smooth. The layout packs quite a punch, because there are some intense ejector moments, narrow turns and a great upside-down station fly-through. The compactness (and with it the increased intensity) is the only minor point I can find at this ride.

    Okay first off, and most importantly, do not be deceived by the storage shed for this ride. It's only got one train, always has and always will. I didn't find that out until after I got to the park, but luckily the ride had no wait. Now, let me start again by saying this ride is amazing, I mean truly truly amazing. A lot of people had complaints about the shaping of these newer Vekoma rides, but I don't really mind that since the ride itself is amazing and it flows really well. Each element transforms into the other perfectly with ease, and I love that about this ride. It's also surprisingly intense, with an estimated G-force of at least 4.5, then again I'm not really sure. The ride is full of positive Gs, and intensity is kinda my thing so I really loved it. Did I mention the drop? No? Well I'm gonna now, because that is without a doubt my favorite drop, stealing that title from I305. The drop just comes out of nowhere, and in the back row you get sustained ejector for like a solid second and a half, which is just amazing. I'm not really a fan of inversions, I mean I could live without them, but Lech has some fantastic inversions. The first kinda-like-a-wraparound-cork after the drop is really great, and intense from start to finish. The roll through the station is great as well, and taken at incredibly high speed. But my favorite was probably the last corkscrew, which just flows perfectly into the turn following and has no lateral jerks at all. The ride also has some extraordinary airtime. Every airtime moment (with the exception of the outwardly banked hill) is ejector, right 'till the very end, even the hop into the brakes. And surprisingly, the vests don't absolutely butcher the airtime, which is always good. Speaking of the vests, the train is actually incredibly comfy. I don't quite like it better than Taron's but I found it to be really nice. Alike Taron, the ride-ops push the restraint as far down as they can, but also alike Taron, it's still really comfy, and doesn't get in the way of the ride at all. It's also really smooth, and I'd never expect that from a Vekoma. It rides so well, but that may be because it's brand new, I don't know. Finally, it has some pretty neat theming from which you get a good few headchoppers, one of which is of course the roll through the station.

    A supremely intense coaster, graying me out almost every time right after the Dive Loop. The airtime hops towards the end are very powerful, similar to the best RMC designs. The trackwork is very smooth, not providing any headbanging and only some minor rattle. The layout is impressively compact and offers many crosses and near-misses with the scenery. Vekoma has produced a real winner here!
