I'll try to summarize what the six-year plan looks like:
2018 - Gerstlauer "bobsled" coaster in the new Hawaiian Village area, Coccinelle kiddie coaster to re-open with a new name/theme in the Loup Garou area, re-theme of swimming pool
2019 - Erratic Shooting Dark Ride from Alterface in the Ali Baba area, Zierer kiddie coaster in the Playland area, retheme of Cobra, addition of a Bollywood themed spinning theater
2020 - Mack Twist'n'Splash near Loup Garou in a newly re-themed New Orleans area
2021 - Mega coaster near Tutankhamon in a newly themed African area
2022/2023 - AquaWalibi Slides, the area around the log flume Psyke Underground and Flashback to be re-themed to a harbor

I'm not clear what year the Gertslauer SkyFly is scheduled to open.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

Walibi Belgium reveals name of new roller coaster

150218waka3.jpg


The new roller coaster of Walibi Belgium is going to be called Tiki-Waka. The theme park has announced this at a meeting this morning. Furthermore, a second new attraction was announced for 2018: a play trail called Tiki Trail.

Both additions will be located in a Hawaiian themed area at the back of the park, near the interactive darkride Challenge of Tutankhamon.

In addition, the indoor swimming paradise Aqualibi will be expanded with a children's area of seven hundred square meters. The new part is called Kiddie Bay. Walibi Belgium will reopen on Saturday 31 March.

The plans are part of an ambitious master plan of the Belgian theme park. In the coming years several major attractions will be installed, including an interactive water attraction (2019), a children's roller coaster (2019), an interactive dark ride (2020), a megacoaster (2021) and a Sky Fly (2022-2023).

Or these pictures are a few days old (what I doubt seeing pictures of an incomplete lifthill just a few days ago) or there is no way they can have this up and running in a month from now. Seems like there is a solid week of track constuction left. Okay they might be further in the unseen department of construction but I would be shocked to see this open on March 31st.

No opening date has been announced yet, but the park said that it will open during the Easter holidays. So maybe not March 31st, but certainly the week after.
