In 2018 Intamin announced two new roller coasters for 2021 which were purchased by Compagnie des Alpes.
One coaster would find its new home at Parc Asterix in France the other one in Walibi Belgium.
Since COVID-19 has shaken up the entire industry we weren’t certain if we indeed would see those two new coasters completed on time or completed at all. In the spring of 2020 Parc Asterix announced that they would push back their new coaster to 2021. But for Walibi we , for a long time did not get an update, that was until construction work was sighted on site in April.
Since then, the station building as well as some other smaller buildings were built. In June, the first Intamin track pieces were sighted. For the past weeks, of July the coaster was growing at an insane speed.
Obviously, I wasn’t able to just sit at home and watch the construction of this Intamin mega coaster from my computer screen. That’s why I got myself a Walibi Belgium Season Pass and flew to Belgium to shoot photos of the construction site.
