Very cool ride! I'd love to see these pop up at more parks.

I'd love to know just how wet this gets you. The track flooding system is impressive engineering though.

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

That looks like a lot of fun, can't wait to ride it. This will be great for a lot of parks.

Pulsar has just opened for the public (for the first time). The ride will be officially open on June 4. Until then, the ride will randomly open for public (try-outs/soft opening).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That looks really fun! Well done to Mack and Walibi Belgium for coming up with such a cool and unique concept!

^I'm seriously impressed with that, really cool to see the turntable station in action. Hope that more parks get one of these soon!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Looks awesome! I find it super interesting how they fill up and drain that splashdown so efficiently. I'm loving what MACK has been doing lately!

hmmm, don't know. Looks kinda boring to me. Maybe for a small park, but it won't be a hit in a large themer.

I Love Donkeys!
