The area, which will be the first 'World of Walibi' to be created under the new brand, will be called Tiki, and there'll also be a jungle trail thing - called Tiki Trail - which weaves round the coaster.

Whoops.  Turns out the area will be called 'Exotic World'.

 

Along with Tiki Waka and Tiki Trail, which will also go other the park's boat ride, the façades for the arena (still-disused) and Challenge of Tutankhamon will get makeovers to fit in with the area.  There's also going to be a new juice and cocktail bar, and new music by IMA score, the second time the park have worked with them, after Pulsar.

 

In other news, there's no news regarding the 2021 mega coaster - any layouts shown are just to give a rough indication of what is expected, and no manufacturer has been confirmed.  But it is still going to happen..  Also, the Coccinelle kiddie coaster, which was removed to make way for Tiki Waka and meant to go next to the park's woodie this year, is apparently now going to be put in storage until that area is rethemed in 2021.

 

So one cred in, one cred out.  Unacceptable. ;)

A nice overview of Tiki Waka, featuring a completed lift hill...

I'm also under the impression that the layout will differ slightly to the video linked a while back, but that's not confirmed..

Tiki Waka's circuit was completed at the beginning of the month, but the Tiki Trail still is not.  Testing still hasn't begun as a result and the area isn't near completion yet, so the opening of Exotic World (which was meant to be this week) has been delayed, with no new date set yet.

 

If anyone wants to hear a snippet of the IMA score audio, here you go...

Just as one coaster finishes (more theming and effects have been added to the area since that POV), there's some rumours of the 2021 coaster...

 

Exact source I'm not sure about, but this is supposedly what the station for the mega coaster will look like. If true, Walibi really are hitting the sweet spot with theming!

Walibi Belgium took a trip to Switzerland and took some drugs with Intamin...

Coming in 2021. Note that, sadly, the new Intamin at Asterix will be 51m tall, so this will only be the highest coaster in the Benelux. Burn.

 

Again, another mental-looking coaster from Intamin; that final third looks insane.

 

 

Anddddd, just as a reminder of what's coming up in Walibi Belgium over the next few years:

 

2019: Popcorn Revenge - 3D shooting erratic dark ride

2019: Junior coaster

2020: Splash battle and Gerstlauer sky fly / sky roller

2021: Intamin coaster and re-introduction of their kiddie cred, along with a retheme of the Vampire / Werewolf area

 

Damn Walibi, damn.

More details of the new land for next year, which is being called 'Karma World'. The plan is for all areas to be rethemed by 2022 and will follow the '_____ world' naming. Not a fan of that idea as it can sound tiresome, but heyho.

 

They seem to have strayed away from the original Bollywood theme a bit, which makes sense given Popcorn Revenge, so it'll be interesting to see how the whole area feels.

 

Construction update from this week...

On top of this, there is another rethemed area coming - Fun World, which I believe will be the kids area near Psyke Underground. This will also get a brand new kiddie coaster for 2019.

 

This is all part of the park's €100m 5 year investment strategy, which started this year. It originally stated that the park's entrance would be revamped for 2019 too but I haven't heard anything on that yet. But watch this space...

To celebrate world popcorn day, Walibi are doing a bit of advertising for Popcorn Revenge in Belgian shopping centres...

 

 

 

Loving the terrible punny names. I don't think the scenes in the ride will be inspired by those particular IPs (I believe it's more generic). In saying that, who wouldn't love to shoot popcorn in a Walking Dead universe?

This is of course also opening this year, with a retheme of the kids area 'Playland' to 'Fun World'. On top of, of course, Karma World and Popcorn Revenge...
