icon_STOP2021 - MegaCoaster - (9/21/20) According to a Tweet from the ECC, the last pieces of the new Intamin Mega Coaster at Walibi Belgium have now been installed. Take a look at the pictures below.

    (11/24/18) Intamin announced some new coaster projects at IAAPA last week, one going to Walibi Belgium in 2021 and the other going to Parc Asterix. The coaster going to Walibi Belgium appears especially impressive, standing 164 feet tall it will begin with a nice 80 first drop, hit 70mph and run  riders through a nearly 4,000 foot long track full of airtime moments and some unique new track elements that seem to indicate that Intamin is starting a new era of track design and has taking some notes about creating their own version of popular elements from other manufactures.
    An animated video showing off the new Mega Coaster layout going to Walibi Belgium can be seen below.

 
    (6/28/17) A new land themed to Vampires and Werewolves will be created in order to add a new Megacoaster to the park that is expected to be the biggest in the region.

WALIBI HOLLAND
The Netherlands
Compagnie des Alpes (CDA)
Formerly: Walibi Flevo, Six Flags Holland and Walibi World

icon_STOPPark News - (5/30/20) I posted this on my Twitter the other day, but I had to share it with everyone else as well. In celebration of Walibi Holland reopening they loaded the entire coaster train on Untamed (RMC) with 22 gigantic teddy bears, locked in the restraint and sent them off on a wild ride that we all can be jealous of as the fur flies, their arms fly up and down and overall they really look like they were having a grand ole time.
    Come to think of it, water test dummies are overrated, someone should sell some weighted giant teddy bears for this purpose to all the theme park maintenance teams from now on.

 
 
    (5/26/20) With Walibi Holland now open, we also get a look at how they have adjusted the queue for the Lost Gravity coaster to allow for social distancing in the tweet below.

 
 
    (5/9/20) Screamscape sources tell us that theme parks in Holland will be allowed to reopen this month. Most are likely to start things off with a small “Family and Friends” weekend for park staff and special guests as a way to test out new coronavirus safety procedures before trying to reopen to the public.
    Walibi Holland has already set their reopening date to take place on May 25th.

 
    (12/11/19) Walibi Holland will be enhancing the theming the park’s “Speedzone” area over the off-season, with the help of themeing group, “MK Themed Attractions”. The two worked together previously to rework the park’s “Untamed and Wilderness areas.” According to BlooLoop the area will have an “improved race car theme” along with some new surprises added to some of the area’s popular attractions, like the Space Shot, G-Force and Goliath coaster.

2020 - Nothing is known at this point in time...

2021 - Condor Improvements - (1/9/20) According to this post on Twitter from Walibi Holland, the Condor inverted coaster (Vekoma SLC) will be getting brand new trains in 2021 with the more comfortable and open restraint system, and leaving the “hang & bang” horse-collars behind for good. It’s also worth mentioning that Condor is actually the very first Vekoma SLC coaster to be built in the entire world, opening back in 1994.
