Today Walibi Belgium announced their master plan for the future years. We already knew they were going to do that today, we didn’t expect anything special. Maybe a new family roller coaster as a replacement for the Coccinelle kiddy roller coaster or maybe something else on that place. Walibi kept mysterious about what they had […]
Every roller coaster enthusiast probably has thought at least once that they don’t live in the right place to enjoy their hobby to the fullest.

Poland is not the first country that comes to mind when planning a theme park trip. It is a big country, the ninth biggest of Europe, but only had 20 roller coasters to offer until 2014. Knowing that a little country as Belgium has more roller coasters, it’s clear that theme parks weren’t really a thing in Poland. […]

It is less than a year ago that Phantasialand gave us a Klugheim, a brand new theme zone containing two new roller coasters. Taron became the new crowd puller of the German theme park and is named one of the best roller coasters on the European continent. But Phantasialand wouldn’t be Phantasialand if they just did nothing. We already knew they had plans for the area were once the simulator Race for Atlantis was located. The simulator was broken down and now the park reopened again, it placed some very interesting signs near the construction site. Enough for the fans to start the rumors!
