Photo TR: Walibi World 22/04/2009


Recommended Posts

Helloooooo everybody!

 

It's been a while since I posted on TPR but now I'm back and I'm better than ever

 

Anyway, I went to Walibi World with three friends. We were on a holiday in the Netherlands and stayed at a Center Parcs resort. We had a great week but the highlight was, ofcourse, Walibi World. Highlight of the day was, also ofcourse, Goliath!

 

Well, I'm not into talking so let's see some pics! Enjoy!

It also has some theming

1999261541_DeEemhof142(Medium).jpg.015146a3f28729b71b1d8972819fd9d8.jpg

Fun for all ages, though!

El Rio Grande is not what I call "wild" but here is a nice part...

Express, seen from the rapids queue

El Rio Grande, the rapids with the strange boats.

This fountain is so funny! Especially when some coolio is standing next to it...

1229158207_DeEemhof126(Medium).jpg.1f03062f93057ef99c2cd12dd63a0ebd.jpg

Poor Via Volta... And poor me for missing the credit...

940040087_DeEemhof124(Medium).jpg.64eca93208679e81ea3fd88feca9c03c.jpg

Chairswings... Always a beautiful sight, especially when I'm NOT in it!

1834681093_DeEemhof118(Medium).jpg.93e1cf3792a3326c9f0b8ddb7caa2de9.jpg

Here I am, acting totally normal...

Another shot of the Flying Dutchman

994956854_DeEemhof112(Medium).jpg.f47985683e76c12bb49379474f8dca51.jpg

Like I said before: this thing is wild! And here's the proof!

1880631108_DeEemhof110(Medium).jpg.97a6aa984d5f1be76471a6e64f0d1ad1.jpg

Random strangers on Flying Dutchman

Blurry onride pic. I'm not surprised that it's blurry, this thing is wild!

Round 2 and we're still doing fine!

Wok likes to hide him between the coaster tracks.

714686009_DeEemhof098(Medium).jpg.55da31cbc929283155b647ef2447c694.jpg

Light speed!!

433867157_DeEemhof095(Medium).jpg.9980316819401ab4247484c1e684f06f.jpg

The long and steep lift hill...

569253494_DeEemhof093(Medium).jpg.4647bcf8b1eff3919ae732bd547f78ee.jpg

Everyone is so excited to ride it!

1577645638_DeEemhof092(Medium).jpg.2262cacca668cd49f2aa4d42f3a8eda3.jpg

A kiddie coaster! Named after the infamous character Wok!

165423007_DeEemhof091(Medium).jpg.0361d0db69bc87d535d329ad2c91a4b5.jpg

Time for a another coaster!

658211723_DeEemhof090(Medium).jpg.9d2db4ad1748dbfac8c59cfcd3d1b357.jpg

Annemie tried a chip twister. Appearantly you have to make a goofy face when you're eating it...

467703409_DeEemhof089(Medium).jpg.c78806abf83c8a89af216fa5a2be283b.jpg

I think that's the station building, it sure looks nice!

357028784_DeEemhof088(Medium).jpg.2559383326a2c55e25cc608225fe0c2f.jpg

Some nice foggy effects...

1543786681_DeEemhof087(Medium).jpg.cf3fc962aa30a9325bf5e5527dbab2a2.jpg

It opened later that day but we didn't feel like riding it...

187458576_DeEemhof086(Medium).jpg.c03236798150d9dabf296847b8f6e0dd.jpg

Splash Battle, still closed.

860750503_DeEemhof085(Medium).jpg.c6ecff57466d0b6e1371891fa2117255.jpg

Ready for lift off!

1957878906_DeEemhof083(Medium).jpg.b51c8589989c1086906be158637b8221.jpg

Space Shot time! But why so serious, girls?!

1350525791_DeEemhof081(Medium).jpg.dc49c3fb863dc5171b1e8f3a8c172732.jpg

Enterprise thingy. Didn't ride it though, I'm too scared... But it makes a nice pic!

2008988348_DeEemhof075(Medium).jpg.df8e94b9a00428ea249fe77f72f585a6.jpg

Yes! We conquered Goliath! First train of the day, actually, and front row! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

84402559_DeEemhof073(Medium).jpg.1d5b5e8c3c4f512921cf17b5f38072d5.jpg

A lovely fountain for all you fountain enthusiasts!

539083389_DeEemhof072(Medium).jpg.3aab892a5b9e877a9a1267586e280728.jpg

This lucky kid got to press the button!

Walibi is not amused: "Dude, what the hell are you doing?! I'm the mascot!"

337238195_DeEemhof069(Medium).jpg.c80342a8c490fa4504843d3ff59fcb05.jpg

Joe wants to open the park himself!

1432878855_DeEemhof067(Medium).jpg.401f8169fb9f027f11cb56032dbf98bf.jpg

The park is not open yet...

942033421_DeEemhof066(Medium).jpg.7d79f775abe3a8e3773a56173237640e.jpg

The entrance. We were almost alone :)

710125377_DeEemhof064(Medium).jpg.b32dda9d3285aaf5ff553e942ef67a48.jpg

And this torture device... Although I must admit that Express LOOKS nice.

2065089773_DeEemhof063(Medium).jpg.bcf43ac20aa5dd28e8c9ede2e8ca2ab5.jpg

Walking towards the entrance, we see this beauty...

DSCF8084.JPG.5fe2e0e81337463dec2f0432b53c4235.JPG

Woohoo, we made it! And we were the 7th car on the parking lot, a good sign!

A last shot of Goliath.

I know I haven't got much pics of Goliath, I was too busy running around, screaming: "OMG, it's so good! It's amazing! The airtime is incredible! The back seat is the best!!"

908099145_DeEemhof190(Medium).jpg.9854a1bfbc52131b238a5a1114de8126.jpg

Ooooh, that sounds like fun!

Nice but way too slow, I think walking goes faster...

208728691_DeEemhof183(Medium).jpg.8af6c56439d4230f6aaaa958f0543c4c.jpg

Our last ride of the day: the oldtimers.

1566159498_DeEemhof181(Medium).jpg.922b439672fa66f60eddd620a5a22f51.jpg

Time for some water fun on the Crazy River!

Hey Beeja Buddy!

 

It is always a pleasure to see your beautiful face and one of your awesome trip reports!

 

I like looking at pictures of places I have been, brings back great memories like Elissa checking off my shirt at the Walibi World globe, and Joe dumping cup fulls of water on kids at the splash battle ride.

 

Best of all, it reminds me of the great fun and fantastic day we spent together, that was really awesome

 

 

Curious though, it sure does look like you have a wedding band on now, something you forget to tell us??

 

 

Also, congrats on being 1st runner up at the Miss Big Mike Road Show 2008 pagent!

 

That deserves a quick photo slide show of our great day together!!!

 

Miss you lots, Big Mike

How come you were driving a Mercedes with a dutch plate ?

 

I was wondering the same thing.

 

 

Thanks for sharing and we all hope that more PTR's may follow this year.

 

It didn't seem too busy did they do a two train operation on Goliath?

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!

 

Now for some answers:

 

* El Condor is indeed a death machine! My ears were red and burning when I got out... About the new trains: I think they tested two new cars last year but that's all that happened...

 

* We stole that Mercedes at the border

 

* The park was not busy at all that day and there was only one train on Goliath. But we had plenty of rides! I really love the back

 

* What's a wedding band? Is that the same as a wedding ring? If so: no, I'm not married! That's a ring I made myself and I had it on last year also. I've been wearing it for about 10 years now!

 

Big Mike, thanks for the slide show, I really had a great day back then! Too bad I can't make it to Scandi this year...

 

Well, I'm beginning a new trip report right now! See you there!
