After seeing Walibi Belgium's 2018 additions I really want to go to visit European theme parks. I can't think of a park in America that has a roller coaster twisting around and over a playground, or even with an odd ride like Pulsar. Europe has so much cool ideas and concepts in their parks and I hope to go there someday.
Favourite Coaster: SkyRush
Other Favourites: Storm Chaser, Lightning Run, Blue Streak (CP), Voyage, Alpengeist, Apollo's Chariot, Phoenix, Goliath (SFGAm), Storm Runner, Raptor (CP), and Magnum XL-200

If Magnum XL-200 dies we riot

May the force of Hello Kitty be with you

Why do I still have a donkey title???

first soft opening of tiki-waka today, first onride videos are starting pop up.
The official Walibi youtube uploaded a 360 version:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0RgCcrWiaQ

but i personally hate these kind of videos since they are low quality and the image warps and has artifacts at the edges and such, that in combination with the very wide angle creates a false sense of speed etc. So this POV video might be a better representation even if it's probably from the same original video but just cropped out...

Alot of people on news websites etc are commenting about how many brakes there are and how slow the overall ride is. Of course they don't know that these brakes are there for having more blocksections and more capacity wich is a good thing i think, but i don't like how they actually do brake quite hard, especially the last 2, these airtime hills at the end look fun but the speed is just a touch too little in my opinion.

It's not a huge highlight of the park but overall i still think it's a good investment, as the ride model suggest, it's a "fun"-coaster, it's not extreme in any way but for kids it's still gonna be a good experience i think. Theming is very basic but for Belgian attraction park standards it's not a huge letdown either, i love the theming of the cars for example.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

For some odd reason the brakes are harder when the cars are (nearly) empty. The heavier the car, the lesser it brakes on the blockbrakes. Saw this happening last week. Trains with sandbags in them just flew trough the brakes, the empty ones crawled out of them.

In this brand new POV, it's very noticable:



Looks like a decent Family Coaster, can't wait to re-visit the park this year!

I love the interaction with the path below and how twisty it is. Looks like a really fun ride with some near misses!

It's a shame about the soft opening, I heard it wasn't untill the afternoon people would be able to ride. I actually wanted to go next week and try it out but I'm not sure now. Other then that looks to be a solid family ride. Good to see the two big Walibi parks actually bringing some good coasters after a 9 year break.

Looks like a great family coaster! I didn’t realize how low you sit on these Bobsled coasters.

The seats look "almost" like recliner seats with the legs able to extend, rather than bend in. Cool! :)
