Sven: After a visit to Walibi Holland, we also went out to discover the new coaster in Walibi Belgium! It’s no Untamed, but Fun Pilot might as well be for non-thrillseekers. As part of it’s master plan, the ride stands out in the new Fun World area. Let’s play!

Alright, as good theme park fans, we started at the back of the park. Basically we’re going to discuss all the latest additions in the last few years. In 2018, that was Exotic World with the new coaster Tiki-Waka! Even though the coaster doesn’t really stand out among the others of it’s type (take Van Helsing’s Factory for example who’s much better), the ride attracts a lot of guests. The queue is usually the longest of the park so if you want to get the credit, go there first!
In any case, the regular queue was 35 minutes which wasn’t that bad. Single Riders however had no people in line so we took that queue. With 0 wait time, we even boarded both in the same boat! So good that Walibi installed these queues!
Anyway, let’s continue and we’re at the “novelty” of 2013: Psyké Underground. Yeah, this classic Schwarzkopf has been hanging around for a lot longer, but then it got its transformation to the ride it is today. During this ride, I could clearly see the hidden monster in the looping! We sat front seat, which is fun but I prefer back seat for the airtime at the end.
So yes, basically it’s an upgrade of the existing children’s area of the park and as mentioned in our previous article, the goal was to incorporate it better into the main walkway of the park. How do you ask? Well, by a new coaster!
This ride shows again how Walibi Belgium has a lot more to offer for the whole family compared to Walibi Holland. Now they also start aiming at families but with taller children. Here, all ages are welcome at the park.
The Mad House, Palace of the Genie, got new colors too and is less hidden compared to before. Not my favorite among the ride type, but a nice to have. Especially when it’s raining. It’s really on the border between two worlds.
Did you know that you can find secret characters allover the ride? At the end of the game, you can find out which ones you found. Do you recognize the ones we found? (And yeah, we need to work on our game strategy…)
Let’s conclude with our Instagram question we posted during our visit. To RMC or not to RMC? Loup-Garou holds a special place in my heart. And it’s probably the most famous coaster in Belgium as it was the only woodie for years. A lovely layout but a bit rough sometimes. Still, is that enough of a reason to RMC it? After riding Untamed, I’d love to see a ride like that in Belgium. But not sure if I want to give Loup-Garou up. You guys were clear though, 80% said YES! We’ll see after the Mega Coaster what they will decide and how well Untamed is doing for the Dutch sister park.
