Just that I got it right, Pulsar is fully operating now right? It's no longer a soft or is that still in play?

Hey guys!

I finally found some time to visit Walibi Belgium this year. I went to experience their newest coaster, named Pulsar. Pulsar is the third shuttle coaster in the park. All I can say is that they have a big hit with this ride. It's my favourite ride at the park. I had 8 rides on it; 4 on the back row (5th row), 3 on the 4th row and 1 in the front. The outer back seats make you soaked! But like really soaked. I was completely drenched. The front seat doesn't get you that wet.

The ride starts nice and slow with the first launch backwards. On the vertical spike you get some unexpected airtime, which was a great surprise! Then you are peacefully going forwards, until you hit the second launch. Oh man, that's a blast! You are literally thrown out of your seat! Next you are travelling up the other vertical spike, which had a little bit of airtime. But when you hit the third launch and reach the maximum speed of 101kph (62mph), the airtime on the hill is very good! You travel up the vertical spike for one last time. At the top, you got some fantastic views and a great feeling of zero G on the way down. And then you hit the big splash. And when I say big, I mean very big! It's probably the biggest splash I've seen. I love it!

After all, it's a fantastic ride and a solid addition for the park.

Here are some pictures I took.

It's a 45 m Vekoma wheel, built in 1979.

The removal of this ride has now been confirmed by the park. It will be removed this winter.

No new ride in 2017.

^^That's sad to read. Ferris wheels are about the only ride you can get some good overhead shots of parks.
Other than observation towers and skyrides in some parks. Plus, they usually look so cool as part of a
park's skyline.

Glad I got to ride it in 2008 (TPR Europe Tour).

Ha, this is actually kind of funny because the ferris wheel was having all sorts of issues when we were at the park and had mechanics working on it. We were lucky to get on.
