I have ridden Les Tours des Jardins and eaten at Friar Tuck's on two past visits. I shall miss them both,
but I LOVE CHICKEN, and this coaster would fit perfect in the Jardins spot.

But keep some of the gardens (and trees) around it, please? :)

Perfect ride to RMC! The huge trains they have now tear the track apart, best thing they could have done if they didn't GCI it.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This is fantastic news!! There were rumors for a long time going around about this conversion, but rumors are always just rumors. But I have to admit, if there was one park doing this kind of conversion in Europe right now, I would definitely have said Walibi Holland!

I just can't believe that the first IBox in Europe is coming to a park just an hour away from me! :airtime: :airtimer:

Sorry for the double post, but here's the full article.

Walibi Holland opens new RMC roller coaster in 2019!

On the 1st of July 2019, Walibi Holland will open the first hybrid roller coaster in Europe. The present wooden roller coaster Robin Hood is being rebuilt by manufacturer RMC into a roller coaster consisting of a combination of wood and steel. In September 2018 RMC and Walibi Holland will start the renovation.

In recent years, we worked hard on the plans for the renovation, which Walibi Holland now announces. Until October 2018, guests can still enjoy the current Robin Hood, after which the ride will be converted into a completely new roller coaster. In September of this year, the first work behind the scenes will start, says Maschio van Till, director. "This is the dream of many amusement park fans in Europe", says Walibi director Mascha van Till. "We are very happy that we can finally announce this."

With the opening of the new roller coaster, Walibi Holland will open the third new attraction in four years. After the virtual reality experience NeuroGen in 2017 and the roller coaster Lost Gravity in 2016, in 2019 Walibi Holland will open a new roller coaster.

The opening of the new Robin Hood in 2019 coincides with other renovations in the area of Sherwood Forest. In the coming years, a part of the park will be taken care of every winter, working on the Main street this winter. The different areas are thematized on the basis of a newly developed styleguide, under the name Festivalization.

No, don't apologize. The other post was a garbage post with zero information by someone too lazy to actually post good content. I had to go in and fix it.

FYI - If you're not going to bother to take the time to contribute good posts to TPR, don't contribute anything. Posting "just a link" to an announcement will get you temp banned from our forums for being an idiot in the future.

Thank you Jordy for taking the time to post this.
