They had guys at walibi World testing Goliath with their arms out like that guy to test if they could hit the branches, they were really cool guys also!
They called themselves the B Boys and danced for us!

That is one sexy ride! I find something sexually arousing about one car going around a track with smooth curves! It is a gorgeous ride!

Anubis' station looks really nice, but I can't quite figure out the theming. Is it supposed to be an old English house that brought back an Egyptian curse or something?

Great pictures Hanno.

I've searched and found a POV for Anubis because, as Hanno pointed out, it is hard to get an idea of it's layout and my god it looks as if it TEARS through its course at unbelievable speed.

That's the coolest-looking coaster I've seen in a while. Great pictures! By the looks on the rider's faces, I'd say it's an intense ride.

This ride is hauling *** it's a short ride.. it's over before you know it.. but i can understand why a lot of people are holding on like that.
It's not like something else in the area.. it's way more intense.
And yes.. i feel it will give a nice boost to this park.

Regarding the theming.. i've only found a dutch explanation but the rough translation would be:
The house is from 1900 and is a boarding school. (hope I translated it correctly. (internet in dutch))
The school master tells the 9 children that are prhibited from entering the attic. One day one of the new kids is locked there and discovers a diary.. in which it is told that there are jewels and diamonds buried somewhere around the building. Those jewels and diamonds belonged to on old egyptian pharoah and were stolen from his grave..

That's it..

by the way.. i just spotted this:

airtime on the wheels..
I'm dutch.. not much i can do about that
