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!
Sven: You probably know that I live in Belgium. Coasterwise, we don’t have the tallest or the most thrilling coasters out there. However, we do have some unique coasters that can only be experienced in our tiny country. Today, we put one of those in the spotlight as it is a true icon in many ways. Raise your glass to 30 years of excitement thanks to Revolution at Bobbejaanland!
Sven: Finally, we made it to Scandinavia! A region that was lacking on my theme park count (and thus also coaster count). Fortunately, we experienced a wonderful two days at Liseberg, the coaster kingdom of Scandinavia. A stunning launch coaster, a woodie full of airtime and one of the best family coasters out there. Oh and a wonderful dive too. Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Liseberg – Coasters You Want Nearby”
