Lots of rumors in France that the park is bankrupt.

As a result, the park is virtually empty these days.
There's now a message on the Walygator website reassuring visitors that the park is open and will remain open until the end of the season.

À nos très estimés visiteurs,
Contrairement aux rumeurs qui circulent, Waly vous confirme que son parc sera OUVERT jusqu'au 1er novembre 2012 (selon calendrier d'ouverture). Il ré-ouvrira ses portes en avril 2013 pour une nouvelle saison pleine de nouveautés.

(also, can a mod rename this thread "Walygator Discussion Thread" ?)

A quick update: the park has been placed in administration.

December 5, the current owners will have to outline the park's financial situation.
January 23, the court will decide the park's future.

^Thanks for the update, please let us know any further developments for the park. Hopefully they can find a buyer who can run the park right, it certainly has a lot of potential.

I actually thought the park was a lot better this year than my last visit in 2008. Hopefully someone will come along that can take over the operations.

Yeah, I mean, Monster wasn't braked at all, ran awesome, and Anaconda didn't totally beat the crap out of you like it used to! :p

Well at least they'll have one valuable asset to sell off in the B&M invert. Hope they can work everything out.

I will pass on the lawsuit drama, court of appeal and so on, since to cut a story short, the new team is staying at the head of the park, have bought the remaining travelling fair rides, the only exception being the Ferris Wheel (already dismatled and has left the park) The team is now 3 people (previously four but one has finally withdrawn), they are finally keeping the old name but have already shown the redesigned character (waly) and park logo. the most important news today (and it seems to come from the communication staff of the park, and was stated on their Facebook page) ANACONDA IS UNDERGOING A FULL RETRACKING BY GCI next year. If the new team keeps half of their promises, I'll really be happy. Stay tuned !

"Maybe" a reason to go back there, eventually?
