    If the options are between a vest and a horsecollar, I'd vote vest every time.

    I actually like the vest restraints on the swarm for some reason... ;)

    Could the vests not be necessary for the high lats elements like that drop would cause?

    B&M Vests are miles better than Vekoma's. Those things are so tight, it's borderline uncomfortable...

    They're just standard for new inverting coasters from Vekoma as far as I'm aware.

    I dunno, looking at that first drop I reckon the presence of any kind of over-the-shoulder harness might be somewhat... reassuring.

    I don;t have an issue with OTSR but vests are vile. As Delpiero said, it's ok for us blokes to be dismissive of them but I've heard many top heavy ladies don't find them titillating either.

    Vekoma vests have hampered the experience a bit in the past, so it is a bit of a shame.

    There are plenty of rides that try to kill you as much or more than this, with lap bars, so it shouldn't be a force thing.

    ^Me too.
    Who'd have thought it? Getting excited over a new Vekoma in Poland.
    Poland ffs!
    Strange times.

    Shame I can't justify a trip to Poland this year when the Intamin is going in next year, as I'd love to get this in my face immediately.

    Still looks very very intense and fast-paced! Very tempted to book my flight now...

    Oddly the park has changed its name for this season after 60 years. It is now "Legendia"

    That's interesting. Are they also rebranding the whole place?

    I think it's just to make it easier for the international audience to pronounce now that they're getting something noteworthy. 'Śląskie Wesołe Miasteczko' doesn't really roll off the tongue, much less memorable.

    By the way, that coaster is one sexy beast. <3

    I also think it could be down to their master plan of investment, and to make this an actual theme park as opposed to an amusement park. With Energylandia just down the road offering themed experiences (albeit mild), and Lech Coaster having theming, I think it's quite safe to bet that the park is going to go in the theme park direction in the future.

    The main airtime hill is up!

    So you've got this supposedly big ejector hill followed by a snappy corkscrew-thingy that goes through the building very close to the walls. Sounds legit.
    So excited for this!

    Yes. Now just some work on the station, queue, and theming need to be done.
