I thought De Panne meant bread.
Lol! No, the park is located in 'De Panne', near the border with France. Thats why the park's "new" (since 2006) name is 'Plopsaland De Panne'.

 

Actually has the park two names: one in Dutch (Plopsaland De Panne) and one in French (Plopsaland La Panne), just like the village 'De/La Panne'. Why? Because 'De Panne' means something else in French.

That looks great!

It's nice to see that ever more "smaller parks" can now better afford (?) a multiple looping coaster (that isn't a crappy boomerang), with these relatively new coaster types from Maurer Söhne, Gerstlauer and Intamin Mega-Lites etc.

 

I'll most definitely be going to Brussels in late May, I know this Plopsaland a bit 'far away', 2 hours?

 

Still, it would be cool if anyone knew when this is supposed to open? (I'm sorry if I've missed it).

Next week they are going to begin with the construction of the coaster. Yay!

 

Lol, I'm French and De Panne doesn't mean anything from what I know^^
"De" in Dutch isn't the same "De" in French. I don't know the whole story, but I think it must be something historical?

 

Not that it's interesting, but it's good the know. La traduction de 'de' en Néerlandais et... en Français.

  • De (Dutch) = 'Le' or 'La' (French)
  • De (French) = 'Van' (Dutch)

Voulaient -ils dire que le parc est souvent en panne?

The new station looks nice, but the old station idea was really cool. Had the park gone with that, it would have probably been better than Top Thrill Dragster's amazing station.

 

The second top hat though looks a little odd, but it's probably because it has never been done before. However, it might look better when finished, and going by the current theming on the station, this ride will look really cool.

I am kind of dissapointed that they did not use the upside down station. I really like the whole concept they had going on. But this station is just as lovely as the upside down house, I really canot complain either way, this coaster looks like it is going to be a huge hit with the crowds!

I think they wan't to do something with Anubis (a STudio 100 tv show in Belgium/Holland) so they picked this. Don't really like it! the upside down treehouse is way more spectacular imo.
