Walibi Belgium was founded by Eddy Meus in 1975 as a showroom for cable skiing, which Eddy Meus distributed in the Benelux. He added some fairground rides and named the park to the three surrounding villages: Wavre, Limal & Bierges. Walibi, and since the wallaby is also a kangaroo the mascot for the park become a kangaroo.
Walibi grew fast and became known for it’s innovation. Walibi was the first theme park in Europe that asked an entree fee and ride all the rides for free, instead of entering the park free and paying per ride. It became the biggest theme park in Belgium and a trendsetter among European theme parks. End of the nineties Eddy Meus had to sold the park and Walibi became a Six Flags park! A period that only lasted for 4 years, the park sold again and is now owned by Compagnie des Alpes.
After a period of stagnation, Walibi Belgium is keen to get itself back on the European map of theme parks. Last year they opened a world unique roller coaster. Pulsar is the first launched supersplash/watercoaster from Mack and got great reactions from the general public and the theme park industry.
