This looks like it will start in 2018 with the transformation of the Caribbean area of the park into a new Tiki themed area that will include a new Gerstlauer family coaster to be added near the Challenge of Tutankhamon dark ride. The waterpark may also see the addition of a new kiddie play area as well, meanwhile Walibi Belgium's train ride, Walibi Express, may be retired.

According to a tweet from the EAS show, ETF and AlterFace put the brand new Erratic Ride vehicle on display for Popcorn Revenge, the new attraction going to Walibi Belgium.
    According to AlterFace the Erratic Ride "is the first non-linear mixed-media ride ever with dynamic scene changing, whereby players can determine the sequence depending, amongst other, on their ranking and preferences".
