Advantages: You have attractions on the ground, in the air and in the water. This park is also for little kids.
Walibi Belgium is a popular theme park in Wavre in Belgium. In 1975, it was started by Eddy Meeus under the name Walibi Wavre. The name comes from the municipalities where Walibi is located: Wavre - Limal - Bierges. A Wallaby is also a kangaroo-type, which is probably the reason why the orange kangaroo has become the logo of the park. After a couple of name-changes (including Six Flags Belgium), the theme park has been changed back to Walibi Belgium since 2005, including the orange kangaroo.
What has Walibi Belgium to offer?
First of all there are the attractions, like every theme park. In Walibi everybody is having fun, whether it is in the water, on the ground or in the air, with more than 50 irresistible tourist attractions. First of all there are the Family and Kids attractions. Walibi stands for a lot of family fun. Everyone will love the magical world of the "Genies Palace", a true Arabian nights' experience. To keep the sensation of floating on air, try the swinging French Cancan, the giant flying carrousel or a ride on the Octopus, which its irresistible centrifugal force. When you want to take a break the Ferris wheel will give you the chance to enjoy the panoramic views at a leisurely place. With more than 15 attractions in "mini size" Walibi Belgium has everything in the house for even the smallest to deliver a fantastic day. Children under 1.40 meters are the inhabitants of Walibi Folies: the magical world of the kangaroo, a trip around the world, a ride in the truck or with the tram, an expedition in a submarine. In short, it is a village for children, where they won't get bored due to the kangaroo and his many friends!!!
There are also the thrill rides for the grown-up people. These are attractions for the people who want to have the thrills of their life on the 7 rollercoaster's: Breakneck speed (Werewolf, Turbine), excitement high up in the air (Dalton terror), head spinning loop the loops (Cobra), breathtaking drops which make your stomach churn (Screamer), uncontrollable speeds, turning the scenery around you into a blur (Vampire), a mini-roller coaster experience (Coccinelle) and racing at mind boggling speeds through the bowels of the earth experience (Calamity Mine).
Besides these attractions, you also have the water attractions. There are some really cool and heavy ones for the dear devils. Or if you want to relax, then there is aqualibi, where you can enjoy from the tropical environment with your friends.
You can get there by car: E411 Brussels - Namen, and then you need to take the exit 6 or 9, Waver.
Or you can go there by train: you take the train in direction of Leuven of Ottignies, and you get off at the station of Bierges.
Since I live in Belgium, I didn't had to sleep in a hotel. If you do need one, you can go to the website of Walibi Belgium. There are a couple of references on that website.
The theme park is most of the time open from 10:00 till 22:00. It is closed during the winter.
I have already went to all the theme parks in Belgium like Bellewaerde, Plopsaland, Boudewijnpark, Bobbejaanland and I must say that this park is the best. It is a nice experience. I went there a couple of times with my friends. They have the best and the biggest rollercoaster's of Belgium. In mine opinion, this is the only theme park for grown-up people. The others parks don't have those big attractions. So if you are a daredevil, don't forget to go to Walibi if you are visiting Belgium. You won't regret it!!!
Summary: You can go to Walibi with your friends, when you are on trip in Belgium. You will enjoy it!!
