Lost Gravity has opened today - here's an on-ride POV, although it lacks any audio. This definitely looks to be Mack's answer to the Gerstlauer Eurofighter, if not a bit wackier.

Walibi posted snapchats of the opening ceremony. It looked rather weird, dancers on the roof of the station, a weird looking guy in a lab coat... Worth checking out if you have snapchat

This coaster definitely reminds me of an Infinity Coaster - I bet Mack could do some really good things with this style and I hope that this (or the Mega Coaster/Launched Mega Coaster) is what Blackpool Pleasure Beach gets in 2017. That would be incredible.
Prepare to be mermalized!

Walibi Holland have today announced that their Vekoma wooden coaster, Robin Hood, will be converted to a RMC hybrid coaster for 2019 - the first conversion of a European coaster.

Well, of all the wooden coasters in Europe I never imaginged that it would be Robin Hood at Walibi Holland that would be the first to anounce it'd be getting the RMC conversion treatment! Having been fortunate enough to ride Robin Hood in 2015 it is a fun little coaster, so I have high hopes that RMC will be able to elevate the ride experience and make it a stand out attraction for the park. Think I might need to plan a retun trip there!

Serious incident at Walibi Holland

Looopings are reporting of an accident that occurred earlier today at Walibi Holland in which a woman has been seriously injured. The accident is said to have happened on the Red Bull Kart Fight Exhibition Track, where the woman was injured when she crashed her kart into a railing. 

Both a regular ambulance and an air ambulance were called to the scene of the accident, and eventually the woman was taken to hospital in the ambulance. Currently, the areas surrounding in the ride, and the nearby roller coaster Goliath are closed to the public while the park begin investigations into what happened.

Looking at pictures of the karts, they look like the typical 'fun spot' style karts that are heavily speed limited and are surrounded with steel bumpers. Usually it's hard to do anything other than shake yourself up. Wonder if she managed to flip the kart.

Many a year ago I had an English teacher who broke both her legs in a go kart but those were full on racing karts (and the park was a bit of a death trap with a pillar on the fastest section)
