Today on a press conference the general manager of SixFlags Belgium anounced that the park will be renamed to Walibi Belgium next season. The park will concentrate itself on the family with some new characters like Spongebob, Suske and Wiske, Lucky Luke and also the Walibi. There will be a lot of refurbishment in the park and also some rides will be rebuilded.
An example of that is the old theatre where a 4D cinema will be build.
In the coming week there will be more news about the SixFlags Europe chain which has became StarParks. SixFlags Holland and WarnerBros movieworld germany will announce their new names and their improvements for next season.

Wasn't that the parks name before SF bought it?

^SF Belgium was called Walibi Wavre, and SF Holland was Walibi Flevo.

I wasn't expecting much when I was there in September, but I was actually very pleasantly surprised. Not a bad park at all really... other than the lamentable dispatch times on the Turbine shuttle loop, though I've been told since that that is for mechanical reasons. Maybe that's something the new operators will sort out in the off season.
