Oke, since today the new website was launched: http://www.walibi.com. It has a lot of cool comics and other stuff conserning the battle

Walibi World officially changed there name to Walibi Holland.

ALL the walibi parks will have this new theming, The Music Battle.

The music battle will be a popgroup formed by Walibi (walibi is not a cute and young mascotte anymore, but a more mature one) called WAB. They play against The Skunxs, a rock group that is formed by Sqaud.

The battle will be played on the internet, where you can create an account and choose Wab or The Skunxs as your favourite band. By playing games on the website you score points, and so do all the others. So if you choose WaB, you will earn points for WaB, while the players who choose The Skunxs will earn points for The Skunxs. Making this an online battle.

In the parks themselves a lot of new theming is going one. For example, La Via Volta (the boomerang) is going to reopen the coming season and has been repainted to match the colours of Haaze. haaze is a bandmember of WaB, the purple wearing guitar dude. There is also a rumour going on that it will be called Speed of Haaze.

I'm not really sure how they incorporate the battle in the parks. But I think this new style is pretty good. I think it will make the Walibi parks more family orientated

This is the song by WaB


the song made by The Skunxs


I really think the animations look really good and the music is pretty good as well!

Some other changes that has been rumoured/confirmed:

- The Flying Dutchman GoldMine (wild mouse credit) has been demolished and moved to another park
- Wok's Waanzin (the little kiddycoaster) will move to the old Flying Dutchman spot
- They removed everything from the entrance hall, litteraly everything. They're reorganizing the merchandisingspots and all the other stuff
- (rumour) Walibi also got a permit for inside building. This could be connected to the changes they are making in the entrance hall, but there are also a lot of rumours going on that they are going to get a 4D theatre
- They also got a permit for removing 8 buildings, but its not sure which buildings will be demolished. I think one of the buildings will be the King Solomon Mine stage, that show hasn't run for couple of years now but the stage is still there


List of name changes (old - new):


Cavalli Baroca - Merrie Go'round
Picolini – Super Swing
Bonte ballonnen – Fibi’s Bubble Swirl
Rockey’s Trucks– Haaz’ Garage
Boris Ballenfabriek – Kids Playground
Woks Waanzin – Rattle Snake
Joe stuntvlieger – Squad’s stunt flight
Toeter – W.A.B. World tour
Koa’s Komische karretjes – Walibi’s Fun Recorder
Lollige Lilly – Zenko’s Graffity Shuttle

I saw, went and conquered Steel Dragon 2000. It's still crap!

Nooooo that means no more Wok, the non-politically correct Asian dragon =[

I'll have to see how this whole rebranding turns out. Walibi was such an awesome icon. It looks like a rat now.

World's first Boomerang with on-board audio! :b

Love how the wheel assembly is upside down on the train car display. ;)

Thanks for the photos.

I gotta be honest, I kind of hate what this looks like.

All the concept art with this music theme...ugh, it just doesn't work for me at all.

It is a bit odd. Definitely the most themeing I've seen on any Boomerang. Still not sure if that's a good or bad thing......

While I like that they are doing something different, this whole project seems really strange. While I like seeing all the marketing they are doing, it's for a ride that most visitors have probably ridden (whether at this park or another). I am interested to see how the park ties the battle of the bands/music theme in besides the on-board audio, and it's great that they are investing in a long SBNO ride, when they could have just as easily removed it.

Although, isn't a Boomerang a little too short of a ride to have on-board audio in the first place? I hope it works out well, but as of right now, I don't see the reasoning behind it. I see that it is part of a music themed area, but the on-board audio seems a little pointless IMO.

I should have been more clear, I actually think the retheme of the boomerang is somewhat needed as it was down forever, a lame boomerang, and at least this will give people a reason to ride it.

I meant the whole front area of the park that they seem to be changing into this 'music battle' theme is just odd and ugly.
