Plopsaland Belgium - PTR


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

The past autumn/winter Plopsaland got my attention cause they announced their new ride Anubis. The ride opened a couple of weeks a go and after I'd seen the photo's of Hanno I did want to go asap. Although it was a 3,5 hour drive (one way) it was very well worth it.

 

Plopsaland is mainly a park for little children and they don't have much thrill rides. There are 6 coaster but 4 of them are kiddie coasters.

 

New chapter........Anubis.

 

 

This is a great ride. A powerful launch, A Sh.tload of airtime on the tophat then a drop in Geforce style well not as high but it gave some sort of the same effect. After the drop follows an Immelman - Diveloop section but in the transition between the two elements there is an insanely quick and sudden drop which I really loved. You could hear the wheels slide on the track. It maintains a good speed throughout the whole ride. It was very smooth in the front, the middle seats were okay but when you sit in the rear it is a bit bumpy.

 

I can only say anyone who lives nearby, go to plopsaland and ride that coaster. I think more of the smaller parks should get a Gerstlauer custom coaster.

 

On to the pictures.....

For all you parkmap fans.

IMG_0001_64.jpg.7572d4a7186a0d72ee287625a740d290.jpg

Waiting to get out, run to the entrance and ride again.

IMG_0001_102.thumb.jpg.bdb5f89c7cb7147d81b2c5ba109af885.jpg

And into the final brakerun which is a good place to take your coasterporn pictures.

IMG_0001_52.jpg.448b15dd6555e110cee4b1a2aaab3615.jpg

Zoomed.

IMG_0001_51.jpg.b42e2ab9afdc576bcc390a1065dbf2d9.jpg

Errr I mean it goes into the last inversion with plenty of hangtime.

IMG_0001_100.jpg.58ba42e60e253c845caf0ee8ec5b838b.jpg

After the Immelman it goes in the mcbr section through a couple of corners and crashes into this tree.

IMG_0001_104.thumb.jpg.105ceec3492c9a0b82a977f2eeab6d52.jpg

Diveloop/Immelman.

IMG_0001_103.thumb.jpg.fcc27d89683ea289593c23572c4e9c62.jpg

Then it goes back into an Immelman.

IMG_0001_106.thumb.jpg.7d734ccc20bde5a7c94b78916fb7de41.jpg

And zoomed. It was a bit of bad weather to take good clear pictures.

IMG_0001_101.thumb.jpg.42153a4cb869715c20e91e1228cc72ed.jpg

Still that same drop.

From a distance.

IMG_0001_50.thumb.jpg.8a8910d24eee45401d3aa165443e06af.jpg

Then this drop is so steep and sudden. Simply amazing.

IMG_0001_50.thumb.jpg.115ee219fdfbfe32545132be5ac8ae1b.jpg

Then there is a transition which looks like it's a mcbr with no brakes on it.

IMG_0001_105.thumb.jpg.7b682e4297030de5fa1ea1be290312ac.jpg

Going into the diveloop.

It's Anubis the ride with it's impressive station building. Although the park opened at 10 am this ride only opened at noon and the springflyer opened at 1 pm.

IMG_0001_45.jpg.a6e6dcc32f21fb19e2f4c71ac8ccf727.jpg

Crappy old boats.

IMG_0001_74.jpg.d55476ce5793451a4ab37b58ed42f23c.jpg

There was an old darkride too. I think it was already there in the MeliPark era. However it's now re-themed around Kabouter Plop.

IMG_0001_73.jpg.91af88b2f9b05161c19b08a86222584c.jpg

Apparently there were only adults on this ride.

IMG_0001_82.jpg.02e670d772dd4429f29adf8f4bba5b7e.jpg

It was not the appropriate weather to ride is. There were hard winds and high up in the sky it was very cold.

IMG_0001_58.jpg.e5b585877cc29efee5b8d47595273474.jpg

IMG_0001_14.jpg.24deaab7868608bcbd68e79cde5d235a.jpg

Or not. It was still testing at 11 am and it had a few rollbacks during testing.

There was some kind of Christian Mutality day. I can only encourage that.

IMG_0001_6.jpg.7f1da72548a70d2f9bc9c3c303ab27ba.jpg

There are a lot of rides for little children.

IMG_0001_8.jpg.5cf11cd56fa30e539d1379d2fea18027.jpg

They close the swing at 8 beaufort.

IMG_0001_5.jpg.b2a09b9e05209b5b4221ece1ecb728c4.jpg

At every ride they play annoying Studio 100 music.

Until 1999 this park was known as Melipark.

Great TR, beats Hanno's dull captions any time. What will anubis be like in a few years when the trees grow in?

 

MOD EDIT by larrygator: That remark is uncalled for and consider this a warning from the moderators.

 

Hanno although fluent in English is doing a great service providing these pictures and light commentary to TPR. Anytime you want to try writing captions and posting in a foreign language free feel.

Hans - How did you know I was looking for pictures from this park? Perfect timing and great pictures.

 

It's a gift. I'll try to help you to keep the park index up to date.

 

Great TR, beats Hanno's dull captions any time. What will anubis be like in a few years when the trees grow in?

 

First of don't say that sort of things. Hanno makes one the most magnificent pictures that are posted on this site. I'm jealous on how he can capture the expression on the riders faces. Second, I think when the place get greener it will be very hard to take good pictures. I don't know if it will make the ride any "better".

 

Great pics.

Anubis is pne sexy coaster.

One question - is it neck friendly ???

 

In the front seat it's very smooth and there is no headbanging at all. In the back seat it's a little bit more rough. So when you're there choose for the frontseat.

I always wonder if there are members from TPR, TP.nl or onride.de in the park. When I was leaving the parkinglot a saw couple of cars with onride.de stickers on them.

 

If only there was a place on this site where we can post our whereabouts and meet up with eachother.
