2015 - Nothing known at this point in time, nothing added in 2014 either.

2015 - 40th Anniversary - (11/20/14) Walibi Belgium will turn 40 years old on July 26th, 2015 and the park is going to celebrate that fact this season. I’m told that Aqualibi, the waterpark, will open a new unknown waterslide for 2015, while the main park’s 4D theater is apparently going to replace the Rokken Roll film with something new.

icon_STOP2016 - Mack Power Splash - (3/4/15) Concept artwork of the Mack’s Power Splash ride planned for Walibi Belgium can be found at Freizeitpark-welt.de, showing it just as it was described to me… but I was hesitant to believe it. Constructed in the middle of the lake, it features two vertical towers on each end of the shuttle style layout, and a small camelback hill in the middle.
   As described to me, the experience will apparently launch backwards first at around 50 kph part-way up the rear vertical spike. Dropping 90 down and into a forward launch of 80 kph over the camelback, into a splash pond and up the front spike. Then falling backwards it will hit the third launch backwards, hitting 100 kph and rise up the back spike to a height of aprox. 45 meters and then one more time forwards and up the front spike before dropping back down and back into the station building.
   One more thing I’ve noticed… if you look closely at the plans for the station it appears that there is a turntable in there. I can only assume this will allow for faster loading with the use of two boats, as the boat will roll backwards onto the turn table and get spun 180 to the other side of the table (next to the 2nd boat) for the ride experience, while the second boat will roll off the turntable and into the station to be reloaded. A brilliant bit of engineering there.
    (3/3/15) Walibi Belguim is apparently adding something called a "Power Splash" ride from Mack Rides in 2016. From the odd description I've been send, this may be some kind of new Mack watercoaster that may feature some kind of LSM multi-launch system that can move the boats both forwards and backwards somehow. The description isn't quite making sense to me however, as it sounds more like a shuttle coaster style ride experience that will be done in a boat instead.  Very odd... I guess we'll have to wait and see.
    (11/3/14) Walibi Belgium surprised their fans with a new attraction announcement for something big on the way in 2016. From what I’m told the new attraction will be an unknown new “world’s first” creation from MACK. According to the hints given by the park’s General Manager, Jean-Christophe Parent, the new ride will be the size level of Dalton Terror and Radja River, with construction time table of at least 18 months, so look for this one to start very soon if they want to open by Spring 2016.

2015 - Nothing known at this point in time

icon_STOP2016 - New Mack Coaster - (11/24/14) Walibi Holland confirmed on their Facebook page that they would be adding some kind of new ride from Mack in 2016. They end the post by asking their Facebook fans, “What coaster would you like to see?” which seems to indicate that this will be a new coaster at least and not something else. According to the latest rumors sent to Screamscape, this will indeed be a Blue Fire style mega launched coaster experience.
    (11/3/14) Walibi Holland is apparently building a new MACK roller coaster in 2016. While they don’t say what kind here, I’m guessing that it will be something possibly like Blue Fire at Europa Park maybe.
