Postby wrebbit » Thu Aug 31, 2006 3:13 am

Hey everybody!

Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index.

'Walibi Lorraine' is going to be renamed 'Walygator Parc' next year. Reason for this is that Compagnie des Alpes, who bought all the parks from the starparks group exept Walibi Lorraine and Movie Park Germany, doesn't want that a park that's not theirs uses the name Walibi (since they own all the other Walibi parks).
There new mascotte will be a alligator with the name Waly (surprise)

Walligator is the name of the park's log flume (themed to alligators), they probarly got the name from there. Kinda strange to name the park after its log flume...

Anyways its a fun name and i hope the park also gets some nice new rides instead of just a new name. I went there this summer and i must say its a nice park, nicely themed, and Comet Space (their Vekoma looper) is really good and smooth.

I thought all the Walibi Parks were owned by Grevin & Cie?

When I was there last year, thinking I would never need to return, they were advertising via a large banner an enclosed coaster of some sort for 2010. Now this has come along can we assume it has taken priority?
((53 + 112 + 17 + 24 + Scandi + Mid America + North East + China so far + other = >4??) - (powered = bah + humbug)) = Happy Fun Time
