2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 065b.jpg

Lots of scare actors wandering the park.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 066.jpg

New for this year, Villa 13, as seen from the queue to the rapids ride.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 067.jpg

This is a house owned by Walibi Belgium converted into a horror maze.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 068.jpg

An extra fee was required but it was included as part of the RIP Pass.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 069.jpg

A very good horror maze with:
- Lots of scare actors. (Almost too many, as every room had at least one scare actor and after a while you walked into a room expecting scare actors.)
- Small groups (Five people in our group)
- Video projections.

Final horror maze, Project Z.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 070.jpg

This was my favourite horror maze.
SPOILER: The main reason for this is that you go around the maze on your own. The maze was an obstacle course featuring tunnels and slides. At one point a scare actor stood right in front of me shouting. I had no idea what he was on about. Eventually I realised he was holding a pair of safety goggles that he expected me to put them on. Around the next corner it started to get a bit windy. At the end of the next corridor was a big industrial fan and you had to fight your way into the wind. Half way down this corridor (while I was busy fighting against the wind) a scare actor jumped out on me. (I almost **** myself)
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 071.jpg

He has seen better days.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 072.jpg

Time for a drink at the Zombie bar. The girl kept turning around and telling us off for not dancing.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 074.jpg

Dancing in the bar.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 075.jpg

Time for a cocktail. (Actually, a plastic cup of wine, water or coke) I think they could have been slightly more inventive with there choice of cocktails.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 076.jpg

From the Zombie bar you can see a horror lurking behind the trees.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 077.jpg

It is horrible.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 078.jpg

Bjorn getting attacked by a Zombie.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 079.jpg

Very atmospheric.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 080.jpg

Zombie bride.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 080a.jpg

Obligatory scare actor with chain saw.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 080c.jpg

Sad scare actor as he does not have a chain saw.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 081a.jpg

Hol Ger I am not sure if he likes having his photo taken.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 083.jpg

I was right.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 083a.jpg

Running in the wrong direction.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 083b.jpg

The lighting made the theming even more impressive.

That its for Walbi Belgium day time. When there are a few comments, I will (eventually) post some photos of the Zombie dinner.

There was not any comments :cry: but I will post the rest of the photos from the Zombie dinner anyway!!

Zombie dinner was an additional charge but (obviously) included food. As we visited during the week the dinner was after the parks rides closed.

WARNING SPOILERS: For anyone planning on doing this dinner I would recommend not reading this report.

As the park was closing we gathered outside the Russian themed building.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 084a.jpg

Bjorn meeting one of the locals entertaining the queue.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 084b.jpg

Time to head inside.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 085.jpg

Some of our hosts borrowed a camera and did a selfie. Very cool!!
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 086.jpg

Selfie with Bjorn.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 087.jpg

During starter the curtains around a square stage in the middle of the room fell down to reveal a street dancer. Pretty good but not as good as people seen in TV talent shows.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 087c.jpg

This was followed by a poll dancer :)
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 089b.jpg

Bjorn and Holger supplied a lot of poll dancer photos ;) I have picked just a couple.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 089c.jpg

Bjorn enjoying a beer.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 093.jpg

Another selfie.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 094.jpg

A Russian (ish) style dance with audience participation.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 095.jpg

Holger enjoying the main course. It was very good! The meal was a set meal, pasta, chicken and a tomato sauce.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 098.jpg

During dinner a projection effect on the stage showed a vortex which occasionally morphed into a scary face!
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 099b.jpg

Half way through dinner, there was an attempted break in by the zombies. The hosts protected us and walked around telling everyone to remain calm and enjoy our meal. (They told us this in Belgian, which I do not understand, so the affect was even better for me). The back lit screens were very effective.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 100.jpg

The zombies tried to break in through the main door. Lots of rattling. One Zombie did break in and was caught by a couple of the hosts and placed in a cage near the stage. The Zombie was taunted for most of the night.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 100a.jpg

Zombie attack repelled, back to the show with some magic tricks.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 101.jpg

Bjorn joining in with some dancing.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 103.jpg

Desert, which was very good!
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 104.jpg

The main host of the event was a drag queen. He/she spent the whole night drinking the bottle of vodka (water) and was flirting with a number of guests. He/she took took to the stage and sang a version of 'The show must go on' by Queen.
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 105.jpg

As the song came to an end the Zombies broke into the room. At first a couple... The hosts tried to repel them...
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 109.jpg

Then some more... The host were starting to be over run...
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 110.jpg

Then a lot more... Too many !!! (Probably most of the Zombies from the entire park!)
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 111g.jpg

The lights failed and the hosts told us to run for our lives!!!!! The mood was slightly dampened as they told us to ensure we grab our coats and all our belonging first, but it was very effective!
2013-10-30 - Walibi Belgium - 111k.jpg

Not next (this) year but I would like to go back to Walibi Belgium's Halloween event! It was very good!

OK, I really like the idea of the Zombie Dinner. That's something I'd have to check out if I was in the area.
