Walibi Belgium, the park that started the whole chain of Walibi-parks will get several new rides over the next few years.
For 2018 there will be a Gerstlauer coaster from the Bobsled-model.
Bobsledcoaster tend to be a mix of wildmouse-type 180+ degreeturns and nice spiralhelixes and some good intense airtimebunnyhops.
The one in Walibi Belgium will be one without the wildmouse-type-turns.
For theming they choose to go Hawai-style. Anyone familiar with the park knows that currently in that part of the park the Cocinelle is placed ( the smallest of the Ziererladybugzcoasters).
in 2019 they will open a replacment for the ziererkiddy-coaster in the kidsarea near the rapidriverride.
For 2021 a hypercoaster will be build.
It will be bigger and higher then Goliath at Walibi Holland. This is a conceptdrawing, the plans for the layout are yet to be finalized because the park is still talking to the different manufactures.
The Hypercoaster will be built by Intamin.
Height 53m , top speed 114 km/h
A lot is happening in Wavre at the Walibipark ( btw it was the very first Walibi-park)
They will also expand on Aqualibi ( the waterpark)
The park had a press-event and they showed a video ( including POV) of the Gerstlauer Bobsleb that is under construction in the park to open in 2018
Aqualibi. What a great name.
And I wish a bobsled coaster or two would appear in the US somewhere. I think they look like loads of fun.
Bobsleds from Gerstlauer are amazing... the look a bit like Wild mouse ( either Mack rides or Maurer) but Bobsleds have much more "power" , the G-forces in the helixes are really good and long, also the airtime on the bunnyhops.. wow !
The ones I did really seem to "slide" more then ride, so from how it feels when you rie one the name " Bobsled" is actually spot on.
