Visit Walibi Holland
Walibi Holland is a theme park in Biddinghuizen in the Flevoland province of the Netherlands. Over the years, the park has gone by many names, including Walibi World, Walibi Flevo, Six Flags Holland and its original name Flevohof. The park opened in 1971 and began as an educational attraction centered on farming and agriculture.
Flevohof went bankrupt in 1993 as it was unable to keep up with its competitors. The Walibi Group purchased the park and transformed the site into an amusement park. Just one year later, the park re-opened under the name Walibi Flevo and featured the very first suspended looping coaster known as El Condor. The park also adopted its sister park’s wallaby mascot. The park exchanged hands a few times before 2011 and is now known as Walibi Holland. The park also has new mascots to match its new name.
Park visitors can enjoy a number of attractions that are fun for the whole family. From Merlin’s Magic Castle to karting and a 5D film starring Walibi and his friends, there is something for everyone at Walibi Holland.
Guests can cool off on the El Rio Grande or Crazy River, which is a 524 meter long water coaster. Young park visitors will enjoy Splash Battle which takes guests on a boat ride through waterfalls and tunnels. Each boat has its own personal water cannon.
Thrilling rides like the Xpress and Space Shot are perfect for adventurous park visitors. Space Shot takes you 60 meters up into the air before dropping back down to earth. The Xpress goes from 0 to 90km in just 3 seconds and takes riders through loops and corners before stopping back home.
Walibi Holland also has a special place in the park for young children that feature fun, age-appropriate rides and games. Park visitors can also see fun shows including Rockstars: The Battle where Walibi and Squad go face to face in a rock band battle. Spectators get to vote on the winner.
