    They did confirm a while ago that the contract with the builder was signed... So yeah, it's just time to wait to see who would build it! :)

    I have no idea. Actually never been to a Fan Day of the park. But who knows I might go this year ;)

    After Exotic World in 2018, Walibi Belgium will open two brand new worlds in 2019: Fun World and Karma World!

    We knew about the Karma World re-theme (maybe not the name) but is the kids cred in Fun World new?

    Karma World? My god, there's quite a few people I'd love to shove in there.

    Ah, see the thought crossed my mind that it could be the relocated kiddy coaster but the artwork made it look like something else.

    RCDB seems to be under the impression this will be new too. - https://rcdb.com/15206.htm They state the old coaster (Coccinelle) will be relocated to where the ferris wheel was which I'm guessing will be open in 2020 when that area gets the re-theme?

    The coaster opening next year is new! Coccinelle will re-open together with the New Orleans area!

    The Walibi Fan Day is next week saturday, with lots of lovely extras!

    I hoped they'd go for 3 trains to bump up capacity when needed... (and also to reduce downtime when technical issues occur)

    Looks like a similar scale and type to Goliath at Walibi Holland which is no bad thing. That non-inverting cobra roll is Karnan-esque.
    This will be a really fun ride!

    Ok, now this looks amazing:-

    I've just realized this has the exact same track type/style as Hyperion.

    Only thing about this I would change is that I would bank the final hill into the brakes in the opposite direction, but that's just me being very picky.

    Yup, the guys at Intamin have finally found that drug Alan Schilke has been taking for the past 10 years.

    I love it.

    It seems a bit Steel Vengeance inspired. Start of with some large scale elements then kill you with some quick bunny hills and twisties. That second half is insane. Wonder what kind of trains it'll have.
