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

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.
Welcome to Pulsar!
The entrance. There is some very nice theming in the queue.
People are getting excited for their ride.
It's actually much higher than I thought.
All the way up, getting ready for the splash..
A big spash..
A very BIG splash!!
The station turntable is such a clever idea!
It fits beautiful in the park!
Love the station!
That's not such a big splash..
WOW, okay. That is a huge splash!!
Great airtime on that little hill! I wasn't expecting that, to be honest.
Smile for the camera!
Where's the boat???
For those water pump enthusiasts out there.
Great views from up there, although you don't have much time to enjoy thet view ;)
Skloosh, from the back!
Pulsar through the trees. I'm sure this ride will look even better in a couple of years, when all plants and trees are fully grown.
It is high.
What a massive structure!
These people are still dry, but not for long.
You get absolutely soaked on this ride!
The track is gigantic!
One last photo of Pulsar.

^^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.
