Wednesday, August 9, 2017 3:57 AM

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.

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.
