Great to finally see a conversion in Europe! Hopefully other parks will realise the potential and consider doing the same.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

Damn. That's some exciting news. I don't recall hearing great things about Robin Hood--I suspect I would've enjoyed it somewhat, but it never would've sold me on the park (there's Goliath for that). Now, though? :airtime:

If I recall correctly isn’t this one of the very few Vekoma woodies ever made? That makes for an interesting conversion in and of itsself.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

This announcement took me by surprise. I've never ridden Robin Hood, but I've never heard anyone say it's a bad ride. It wasn't on my radar for a conversion, but the move makes sense. Vekoma has four coasters at the park including Robin Hood and Vekoma is partnered with RMC to sell coasters in Europe. I can't wait until the layout is revealed. I'm happy to have another reason to go to Europe.

I've gone pantless!

Robin Hood was a decent ride, but it was pretty bumpy when I last rode it in 2016. I think it's a perfect candidate for an RMC overhaul, so this is great news.

Walibi will have Goliath, Lost Gravity, and an RMC--that's a very strong coaster lineup.

It's better than the unbanked Intamin woodie Efteling used to have, that's for sure.

Hey now, that's the first Vekoma SLC in the world you're talking about! It should remain as a warning to all mankind. Also,the demonic forces that have taken possession of this thing probably won't allow harm to come to it.

Also: Yay! let's see if RMC lives up to the hype.

The ride was past it's prime in my opinion but it was far for a retirment. The ride was rough but not: "This has to go." rough I usualy rode it only once a day and only if I could directly go into the station, if the queue was on the stairs I would skip it and walk to Goliath. I did once joke "RMC it" never believed that would even be considered by the park, let alone that it became reality. I'm happy that the park could keep it under wraps for this surprise reveal.
I never expected the second European RMC to be that close to home, I had my money on Germany. I still can't believe this.
