Park Rozrywki is part of the Bałtówski Kompleks Turystyczny, a tourist complex established in 2004 with the opening of JuraPark Bałtów, the first dinosaur park in Poland. Over the intervening years the owners have added a zoo, an oceanarium, an amusement park, a horse riding centre, a ski resort, and a variety of smaller attractions – taking the total size of the facility up to 100 hectares. There are a number of different places to park around the complex; readers retracing my steps should probably aim for the lot at 51.01438, 21.55173 (in the bottom left of the map) as it lies roughly half way between the two coasters.
The main area of the park comprises a selection of family rides laid out along both sides of a wide midway. Wristbands are available, though most enthusiasts will likely be content with three regular tokens for Kolejka Górska (#3001), a standard model SBF Double Coaster dating from 2011. The ride is one of the oldest examples of its type, and to be blunt, it feels its age. Each tyre drive motor shakes the train in a manner very reminiscent of the Wisdom coasters of yore, and while the descents are somewhat better the overall comfort level is not good.
The complex is also home to an alpine coaster located about five minutes walk from the other rides. Today it wasn’t possible to pay for a ticket there, apparently due to a staffing problem; instead, I had to retrace my steps back to the main cash desk in order to acquire a black-and-white coloured 10 zloty token. If I’d known how good the ride was I’d have bought more than one, but by the time I discovered that it was altogether too much effort to retrace my steps a second time. The park is to be commended for prioritising operations over sales, though I found myself wondering why the same person couldn't do both tasks at once as seen in France a few short weeks ago.
Rollercoaster was manufactured by Techfun, a niche player in the alpine coaster industry with just six known installations in operation as of 2022 – one each in France, Georgia, Iran, Poland, Slovakia, and Switzerland. The track looks somewhat less refined than the more common Wiegand product, but it rides very well – the only oddity being a steady sound of flatulence from the underside of the sled, presumably related to the speed regulation system. This doesn’t impact the ride quality in any way as it is uniform throughout; there’s no issue taking the corners at full speed. The layout also has three significant drops of around twenty feet that deliver remarkably good airtime.
