My mind "might" be changed, lol. Looking forward to how it all works out.

It's good to see this park getting some attention, as it could use some freshening up--as long as they keep their King Tut dark ride.

Having never been there, this is one of the parks that I fantasy GM'ed in RCT2 back in the day. It's odd that I generally know the layout of the park & where these new additions will be based on my familiarity with the in-game scenario, rather than with the park itself. That said, it's great that the park's in a confident spending-and-refreshing mode. It'd be nice if new Vekoma trains went in for Cobra & Vampire as part of the revamps of their respective areas. The mega coaster artwork suggests Mack to my eyes, which is in keeping with other Mack purchases by the park, but I know you can't always go by the sketch. I'm happy to see this plan; a nice surprise today!

I'd like to buy a vowel!

I gotta say, on my visit last year I wasn't expecting much. The Six Flags of Europe is what I was told. Honestly? It turned out to be one of my favorite parks of the trip! Sure, the only truly unique rides are Pulsar and King Tut's Lazer Party, but I had a fantastic day there! These new additions will really help bring this park to the forefront.

Layout Megacoaster Walibi Belgium confirmed

IMG_20170926_160913.jpg


The layout of the new Megacoaster that will open in 2021, was rumored for quite a while. Now, there are new official documents from the park that confirm this layout exactly. There is also a 3D model of the future rollercoaster available.


After the twisted first drop, there is a large airtime hill followed by an (inside) tophat. Then there are a few airtime hills, quick transitions and turns. There are also some statistics in the documents. For example, the roller coaster will be 53 meters high, giving you a top speed of 114km/h.

Kiddiecoaster

There are suddenly many new details known of Walibi Belgium's major investment plan. Now, there is also a design with the layout of the kiddiecoaster layout for 2019 revealed.

The layout is shows that is a Zierer rollercoaster of the Force-190 model, which can be found in the Plohn and Kolmarden theme parks. The height is 8m, the length of the track is 190m and it reaches a speed of 40km/h.

Thrillride

Yesterday, it was also known that Walibi Belgium will open a thrillride, at the place of the former Enterprise. Now it is also known which attraction it will be: a Skyfly from Gerstlauer.

Slides Aqualibi

But there is also news from Aqualibi. A new drawing shows the design of the new slides that will open in 2022/2023. A new sliding tower will be built of 17.5m high with three slides.

And further

Also, some new concept arts were released from the new entrance area of Walibi Belgium and Aqualibi.

What, you mean the picture or we can download a 3D file?

Thanks for the complete report, this is going to be some good years for Walibi. And that was much needed.

Whoops, I may have used the wrong words.. With the 3D model, I mean the picture. I am sorry for the confusion.

That's okay. I just wish the picture was higher quality. Any clues on the manufacturer?

Probably Mack Rides. From what I can see from the layout, it looks fairly similar to Flash at Lewa Adventure; Out and back, and then the twisty section.
