The Worlds of Walibi


Walibi Belgium is expanding its offer with rides and attractions that satisfy a family audience general director, Jean-Christophe Parent, and marketing and sales director, Marc Guffens give Park World the inside track


F


ounded in 1975 by Eddy Meeùs, Walibi has been under the ownership of Compagnie des Alpes Group, a leading player the European leisure industry since 2006. In addition to to all Walibi has to offer, visitors can also


enjoy the tropical temperatures in Belgium’s largest water park, Aqualibi, which is on the same site. The construction of Pulsar – the splashcoaster voted ‘Best


New Attraction of the World in 2016 - marked the beginning of a €100 million investment plan, meant to transform the majority of the park in the upcoming years. As part of this investment plan, in 2018 Aqualibi was given


a brand new Caribbean theme and enlarged with a 700m² extension called ‘Kiddie Bay’ dedicated to toddlers with no swim experience. In its shallow waters, toddlers can enjoy the splashing fountains and waterfalls as well as the small slides and playgrounds. 2018 also saw the launch of the first World of Walibi,


‘Exotic World’. In 2019 two additional ‘Worlds of Walibi’ will be added to the park experience: ‘Karma World’ and ‘Fun World’. At the end of this large-scale investment plan in 2023, Walibi Belgium will host eight immersive Worlds of Walibi in which visitors will be able to create their own experience. “The eight ‘Worlds of Walibi’ we are creating won’t impose


a certain experience or story to our guests, as a lot of theme parks do,” says sales and marketing director Marc Guffens.


MARCH 2019


“These immersive worlds will rather hand tools to our visitors which will help them to create their own park experience, imagining their own story within the world.” Walibi Belgium offers a whole host of rides and


experiences for guests of all ages and more to come, says Marc “The youngest visitors will discover a brand new world - ‘Fun World’ - in the spring of 2019. This colourful world will also host a new ride: ‘Fun Pilot’, the first ride they will enjoy without assistance from mum or dad”. He continues “The novelties will especially charm the many


families that visit the park each year. For instance, Tiki-Waka situated in the new tropical zone ‘Exotic World’ is a fun coaster for the entire family. This year, ‘Popcorn Revenge’ will undeniably retain the attention of families with children.” In Walibi, says Marc the “real thrill seekers can enjoy the


rides like Pulsar, Werewolf, Dalton Terror, etc. In Aqualibi, the many impressive slides will keep their thirst for sensations satisfied too.” Asked which are the most popular rides and attractions,


Marc is in no doubt, “It’s definitely the iconic ones, Wereworlf, Radja River, Flashback, Psyké Underground and of course Pulsar, which is a true world premiere. In Aqualibi, Rapido (wild river water slide) and the different slides stay very popular amongst all our visitors. Nowadays, the youngest visitors particularly enjoy their time in Kiddie Bay.”
