Maybe Xpress will get those neat new trains in addition to its re-paint. Isn't Xpress like...unbearable to ride?

I last rode Xpress in 2010, it was more smooth then Kanonen (Liseberg) in 2010. The OTSR's are slightly more uncomforable though, but the ride itself is very smooth.

They should just put a mechanism in it so the OTSR's don't 'click', but should have an 'infinite' number of possible settings.

Someone on themepark.nl seemed to know that you can just replace the passenger module; you do not need to replace the entire train to upgrate to MK 1212 is what he said. I don't know his source though.

The rollercoasters in walibi holland, descending in ride comfort:
1. Goliath
2. Xpress (SBNO)
3. Speed of Sound
4. Robin Hood
5. Rattle Snake (used to be Woks Waanzin / RoadRunner Express / Keverbaan)
6. El Condor

Rattle Snake is very uncomfortable, because their programming is really weird. It just doesn't /barely brake(s) when running through the station for the first time, and the second time it stops in under .5 seconds. Also, the friction wheels work very fast. This results in weird quirks when riding. The el condor shakes like hell. It's a fun ride, but it's a mindblender :D.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Official: Walibi Holland gets a new ride next year: a 5D cinema. The movie is probably going to be Rokken Roll (dutch edition).
The big question is: when do you call it 5D? Both the french walibi Parks got 3D cinemas in 2011, Walibi Belgium already had a 4D cinema. What's a 5d cinema? Rotating seats?

My guess is 5D is mainly marketing. They will do something different and claim the extra "D" Most people won't know the difference.

Did Speed of Sound have a bad season? There are several videos on Youtube of it stalling in various places and getting stuck

Yes, it did have a bad season, but.. All stalls were caused by one and the same problem: User Error: people keep trying to climb fences and when the operators notice that they press the emergency brake button. Thus the train gets the brakes applied fully and stops. Usually it stops in the location between the looping and the chain lift, but some cases it doesn't, because the train is already half-passed the emergency brakes.
