    Let's start! (BTW I know that Kristof already posted stuff but I am mid exams and haven't had time to post the pictures so here we go:)
    9th JUne 2018 was Exotic World's inauguration. Here are some pictures that I took and my personal experience!
    [​IMG]
    We all received this VIP EXPLORER pass so that we could enter the zone because it was an exclusive event.
    [​IMG]
    When entering the Exotic World we received a coconut that we could drink out!
    [​IMG]
    We then got to see these dancers/actors/musicians who entertained us and were very nicely painted!

    The food stands were very exotically-decorated and the food was delicious.
    [​IMG]
    The drinks were also good (no alcohol, I'm still underaged...)

    [​IMG]
    Now let's start with Tiki-Waka! It officially opened that day. A lot of people talked about the growth and change of the themepark and how beautiful the new Walibi would be in the next upcoming 5 years.

    Tiki-waka's waitingline looks finished, here are the new details that have been added:

    There is a space where you can buy your pictures, and that day it was in work although you couldn't buy them you could still see them!

    Here is the camera:

    That's when the picture is taken:

    Sorry for the double post...new concept-arts for the Indian restaurant in 2019, queue building for the Mack Twist 'n' Splash, the New Orléans mardi grass themed restaurant and the African restaurant for 2021.

    Today, at an IAAPA press conference, Walibi Belgium announced that they have signed a contract a megacoaster, that will open in 2021. Of course, they didn't tell which manufacturer! True thing is that Walibi Belgium will open the biggest, highest and fastest megacoaster in the Benelux.

    Hmm... as far as I can tell, they then have to beat Goliath at Walibi Holland in all three categories: 46.8 m tall, 106 km/h fast, and 1,214 m long. Okay, depending on one's interpretation of "biggest" it doesn't necessarily have to be longer than Goliath, but with a certain height and speed, length tends to come automatically.

    I can't remember where I heard this (@KristofWB might have said it), but I remember that the coaster was stated to be 53m or 173.9ft (I think?) tall.

    The lay-out and stats of this megacoaster were just to set an example for enviromental permits and such. There wasn't a manufacturer chosen back then, so it was just purely illustrative.

    Fans now think that Walibi Belgium might reveal the manufacturer of the megacoaster during the annual Walibi Belgium Fan Day in October.

    I hear more and more sources say that Walibi Belgium has signed a deal with Intamin to build their megacoaster!

    So we could potentially be seeing a ride akin to Hyperion? Would be a good fit. But most major hyper manufacturers seem to have been talked about with regards to this project, so I'm not sure. Guess we'll find out at Walibi Belgium Fanday or whatever it's called. When is that again, @KristofWB?

    Hopefully they use the ride to it's full potential unlike Hyperion

    ^ I assume they picked quite a while ago tbh, only we don't know the outcome yet. If it is Intamin, I'm hoping over an oversized Megalite sort of deal.

    The expected stats are also really close to Expedition GeForce it's stats (3m smaller and 4kmph faster) Would be cool seeing something like that.
    Who knows... a top 10 coaster in Belgium :D
