High Winds Collapse Portion of "Zadra" Roller Coaster at Energylandia.

You may just have to wait a bit longer to ride Zadra, the Hyper-Hybrid coaster coming to Energylandia, in Zator, Poland. The wooden-structured coaster scheduled to open later this year recently collapsed under high wind conditions at the park.

Zadra started construction last year, this is a major setback for the build, with much of the large structure collapsed. (Photo: Pawel Zieba)

The RMC- built ride was ahead of schedule and planned to open earlier than originally announced, but it looks as if this setback may push construction back into the originally planned opening year of 2020.

Zadra is the World's first ground-up IBox hybrid roller coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction. It has a planned length of 4,265 feet, a height of 196 ft, top speed coming in at 71mph, and 3 inversions. The 2-minute long adventure features a stall, zero-g rolls, and plenty of airtime. The park shocked the enthusiast community when it announced that the coaster would actually be opening in 2019.

Below is an animated POV of the ride of what to expect when the roller coaster opens.
