Life is like a rollercoaster. You can either scream every time there is a bump or you can throw your hands up and enjoy the ride.
Walibi Belgium is the reference in the world of amusement parks. With its rich history and sensational range of attractions, it has always been a leader for young and old. In recent years, the park has already carried out a number of innovations and these are clearly visible since this season.
Despite the delays that were caused by COVID – 19, you immediately notice that the park is much cleaner and you notice several innovations in terms of attractions and appearance.
From now on, you can fight with popcorn in the interactive “Popcorn Revenge”. For a crazy ride with the whole family you can go to the “Tiki – Waka”, one of the new family roller coasters. Cindy found these attractions, even though they didn’t go overboard, one of her favorites in the park.
And also at this moment Walibi Belgium is building a fantastic new, giant rollercoaster which is guaranteed to be one of the newest gems of the park. Aren’t you afraid of water and do you kick on adrenaline? While waiting for the new rollercoaster, be sure to visit the “Pulsar, Gaby‘s favorite. In a crazy 70 second ride at a speed of 100 kilometers per hour, you’re sure to get your money’s worth here as a daredevil!
As a traditional visitor of the park, Stephanie immediately noticed that Walibi Belgium has set out on new atmospheres. In the coming years, the park will invest to dress up the different domains in a certain theme. At the height of the classic “Cobra”, you can imagine yourself to be instantly in Indian spheres.
The bright beautiful shades, food trucks and the new Indian restaurant “Delhi’cious”. Here you can enjoy delicious Indian dishes such as Chicken Tikka – Masala or Bombay Chicken. A welcome innovation for those who don’t feel like a standard hamburger with fries.
While you really notice the new interior, it is still quite basic around the rest of the park. But also here the park has great plans for which of course she is looking forward to. Because if Stephanie based herself on what she has already seen, she is convinced that it’s going to be all right.
Walibi Belgium belongs to many amusement park visitors because of their fantastic attractions. They also have a whole range of classics that simply remain fantastic fun to do.
Angelo liked the “Dalton Terror”, with its 77 meters height, the most. Just enjoy a beautiful view over the whole park and then go into free fall at a speed of 110 kilometers per hour.
Cindy is a fan of the classic “Vampire”. The few bloodthirsty loopings and screws around your own axis are among her favourites in the park.
For Stephanie, “The Werewolf” remains the best attraction of the park. The unique roller coaster, which is completely made of wood, provides the necessary creaking effect during a fast ride where you literally tear from one corner to another.
The fully covered Psyké Underground was without a doubt Sheryl‘s favourite, shooting at 85 kilometres per hour in a hell of a 45-metre loop in less than three seconds.
The park took a lot of measures for the sake of Corona. First of all, you have to book your visit to the park online. This can be done quickly and easily online, via their website. Also, the rule of one and a half meters is respected throughout the park. In every queue and restaurant you will find directions on the ground.
Sanitizer is also available at several places. So you are required to disinfect your hands at every entrance and exit of an attraction. There are also supervisors present at all times to remind you of this. Even in the toilets.
Mouth masks are mandatory in every attraction, restaurant and toilet block. When travelling in the park, it is strongly recommended but not mandatory. Of course, use your common sense to do this in queues where there is a lot of queuing. Mouth masks can also be bought in the shops. Finally, there is signage all over the domain. These are wide footpaths allowing two-way traffic.
