Makes sense to me. K3 was something I wasn't able do dodge when I was still a kid and Plopsaland and the Girl group are both owned by Studio 100. Thinking about it more it shocked me that K3 wasn't this prominent represented earlier. Truth to be told I thought they broke up but investigation made me realize they are still at it just with 3 completely new singers, that just weird to me.

Plopsaland invests 5 million euros in log flume with a gigantic volcano


From summer 2019, Plopsaland De Panne will be a huge volcano. The Flemish theme park invests 5 million euros in a large-scale refurbishment of an old log flume. The castle theme of "De Boomstammetjes", opened in 1989, has to make way for an impressive prehistoric landscape with swirling volcanoes, rocks, lava flows and roaring dinosaurs.

"That we put so much money into theming is unprecedented," says Plopsa director Steeve Van den Kerkhof. "We do not want to do half work, so we take this very seriously." The attraction will probably reopen in July 2019. The temporary work name is Dino Splash.

Normally, Plopsaland chooses themes linked to the figures of Studio 100. "We deliberately did not do this this time," says Van den Kerkhof. "Dino's are timeless and very popular, which we believe is a very suitable theme for this attraction."

Today the theme park brings out drawings by house designer Piet De Koninck. The dinosaurs move along the track. "We wanted to have real-life animatronics," says the director. "That's ten times more impressive than static images." Van den Kerkhof is especially looking forward to the last descent. "You will then pass a large dark tunnel."

The 21 meter high log flume was built by the German manufacturer Mack Rides. At the opening in the eighties the attraction was called Splash. After the takeover of the park by Studio 100, the name was changed to "The Castle of King Samson". Nowadays the name "De Boomstammetjes" is used.

I really dig this increasing trend of European theme parks investing in more high-end theming like this. Makes them stand out more.

I love seeing parks invest heavily in re-theming classic attractions rather than replacing them. This looks like it has the potential to really plus the log flume!
