Legendia in Poland has started teasing a new attraction for 2020. CoasterFriends.de user Vince took these pictures yesterday showing the teaser signage. Seemingly some sort of water ride - flume, rapids, water coaster?

A 2020 teaser has also appeared on the park map. The new attraction will be situated next to Lech Coaster.
Considering they've started advertising this early, and after the solid investments that were Lech Coaster and Bazyliszk, this will hopefully be a great major new addition.

Is that the area where their old school shoot-the-chutes ride was located? A bit of a shame they spited that, but excited to see what they come up with.

I imagine they'll try and introduce something rather substantial, so they can attract attention / piggyback off of Energylandia's 2020 investments. Certainly looking forward to seeing what they come up with!

Wow, parks are loving their early announcements these days. Do we think it might be due to construction/land work taking it's time so work will start late this year?

Either way it seems like these Polish parks are investing wisely so excited to see what they've got planned.

Yay, rapids. Definitely what the park needs to help expand and grow.

The location isn't one that I necessarily would have felt was natural for a rapids ride though, so it'll be interesting to see what they throw up. But based on their recent investments, I'm sure whatever they've got planned will be interesting and the theming will be of decent quality.

As an aside, Parc Spirou are getting a flume with vertical lift? That feels like it should be getting more attention than its getting...

Their rapids are SO hit and miss, more so than Intamin ones.

The ones with drops and whirlpools are excellent - Tripsdrill's was poo, Djengu River is not the best, either - although the theming makes up for it.

I assume by vertical it means elevator, of which there are already several.

China getting 2 'dark' ones is the exciting one obviously.

Love Hafema for their craziness. Don't think they've ever let me down, but I skipped Tripsdrill's for some reason...

Excellent news, will be really interesting to see what they fit into that spot. While the space marked out by the fencing in park was quite big, for a rapids it was fairly small? Hoping this means a lift with some drops.

No whirpool 😭
Great addition to the park that missed another water ride. Their flume is nice but the dispatch are really slow on it ! I also find the layout pretty simple and hope there will be a drop too :D I hope this will have some surprise, one thing that is missing on lot of Hafema rapids is a wave machine like on the Intamin ones, I hope this one will have it !
