Walibi invests more than 100 million euros
Thursday 22 June 2017 - On the occasion of the first anniversary of PULSAR, Walibi raises a corner of the veil on his very ambitious plan of transformations, unequaled in Belgium. More than 100 million euros will be invested in the Wavrian park, starting next year. The aim is to reconfigure the site, turn it into a THE reference to Belgian amusement parks targeting all ages.
What can we expect in the next few years? First, to new attractions every year, but also, to a new thematization of each area of the park. At the end of these historical changes, 75% of the surface of Walibi will be metamorphosed.
Every year, new attractions!
2018 will see not only the installation of a new family coaster, located near the Challenge of Tutankhamon, but also the creation of a new exotic dressing of the area of the bottom of the park. Aqualibi will also write a new page in its history, with the creation of a 700 square meter aquatic playground for younger children, especially children who do not know how to swim. This expansion will allow Aqualibi to reach an area of 7000 square meters, completely immersed in a tropical atmosphere.
In 2019, three other areas will undergo a thematic renewal; Visitors will gradually take over the different worlds created in Walibi, while discovering innovations: an interactive indoor family attraction, a children's coaster, and a large conceptual restaurant.
In 2020: renewal of the western zone and place to an interactive aquatic attraction, as well as many other surprises ...
2021 will be a landmark year as it will highlight Walibi's reputation for its thrills, with the arrival of a giant, spectacular and unique rollercoaster in the Benelux in a completely new area. With this one, the park will count 10 rollercoasters, which will represent an absolute record in the Benelux. The zone targeting the Werewolf and the Vampire will also experience a re-emaciation.
A family attraction and the renewal of the area near the Flash Back will complete this important investment plan in 2022, 2023; Aqualibi will also inaugurate new slides.
Jean-Christophe Parent, Managing Director: "This ambitious development plan will allow us to further establish our position as the largest and most sensational Belgian amusement park for visitors of all ages. Walibi has always played a pioneering role in offering its audiences new and unique sensations. We are convinced that in the future, families and young people looking for an exciting day will be filled."
