Walibi Belgium

Walibi Belgium derives its name from three towns near to the park: Wavre, Limal and Bierges.

The theme park is the largest in Belgium and opened in 1975. It was briefly owned by Six Flags between 1998 and 2004, but is now in the hands of Compagnie des Alpes who also own Bellewaerde and Parc Astérix.

Major attractions on offer at the park include Psyké Underground, an enclosed Shuttle Loop Coaster from Schwarzkopf; Loup-Garou (Werewolf), a Vekoma wooden rollercoaster; and Challenge of Tutankhamon, an interactive trackless dark ride.

Walibi Belgium is a great theme park, and has clearly benefited from being released from the Six Flags shackles. The rides are entertaining, and there are some imaginative theming choices on display in places - just look at Psyké Underground for example!
