  • Lake 05/08/2018 16h58 Bobbejaanland is built around a hand made lake. The Ferris Wheel built in 1976 by Scharzkopf was one of the first attractions of the park. With a height of 30 meters and 24 gondolas it is not a real huge wheel. The bright red heart is typical of the wheel. Originally the wheel was sponsored by the weekly magazine Story with a red heart as the logo with "Story" in it. After the sponsorship, the letters were removed and the heart was just as red as it is now. Later still in there placed the typical B of Bobbejaanland on the heart, but this is also removed and currently the heart is just red. Here the Belgium flag was on due to the soccer championships. Bobbejaanland Bobbejaanland is a theme park in Lichtaart, Belgium. The park was founded by Bobbejaan Schoepen, a Flemish singer, guitarist, and entertainer who enjoyed international popularity in the fifties and early sixties. In 1959 he bought a 30 hectare marsh, had it drained and built a 1000 capacity venue that opened in December 1961 as Bobbejaanland. This developed into an amusement park and remained in his possession until he sold it in 2004. For its first decade after opening the park centered on water attractions and performance spaces. Numerous variety artists from the Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany appeared there. Following the advice of Phantasialand owner Gottlieb Löffelhard, Bobbejaanland evolved from 1975 onwards into a theme park, with rides becoming more important than music shows. It grew to fifty attractions with four hundred employees and received visitors from the Benelux countries, France, and Germany. As an independent family concern, it also supported educational and cultural projects. By the end of the seventies, Bob's wife Josée (a former opera singer and model) opened a museum with works of art from the Hopi and Navajo cultures, forming an extensive private collection of Native American art. Bobbejaanland contains about 50 attractions, such as the Waterslide (1980), the Giant wheel (1976), Indiana River (indoor waterslide, 1991), the Revolution (a dark Rollercoaster, 1989), the Speedy Bob (roller coaster, 1998), the Air Race (suspended roller coaster, 1987, now named Dreamcatcher), the longest junior roller coaster in the world, 'Okidoki' (i.e. 'that's all right', 2003/04), and the world's second Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter roller coaster, "Typhoon" (2003/04), with a drop angle of over 97°(a roller coaster with a fourfold loop and a free fall) and a Splash Battle, "Banana Battle", (2007) made by Preston & Barbieri. The giant Sledgehammer (a Giant Frisbee) reaches a speed of 110 km/h). In 1995 'Kinderland' (English: Kids' Country) was opened as an area for young children. Because Bobbejaan Schoepen was primarily a folk and country singer, the park is still partly themed as a western village (for example the El Rio White Water Rapids and the El Paso Dark ride). In the Star Theater, Las Vegas style shows are performed. Bobbejaan bought Zorro's horse from stuntman Casey Tibbs, but the animal was accidentally electrocuted by an exposed cable. He also acquired an ornate white Pontiac Nudie mobile decorated with American coins. In the winter of 2003 the park invested 12 million dollars in two new rides named the Typhoon and the Sledge Hammer. In a 2004 survey of 13 European amusement parks by Belgian consumer organisation Test-Aankoop Bobbejaanland was rated second after Phantasialand. In the early 2000s the founder was diagnosed with cancer and he sold Bobbejaanland to the Spanish-American Parques Reunidos group in April 2004. [ Wikipedia ]

  • Dream Catcher 05/08/2018 16h12 Unfortunately we were unable to do this oldest hanging roller coaster. Due to the virtual reality glasses, dispatching took so long that we left the queue. It could be fun, even without the VR experience. Dream Catcher Dream Catcher is a roller coaster in Bobbejaanland in Belgium. Originally opening in 1987 as Air Race, Dream Catcher was designed and built by Vekoma. It was Europe's first suspended roller coaster. The track has a length of 600 meters. After ascending the lift hill to a height of 25 meters, the track changes into a bending parcour before entering a triple downward helix that turns in a counterclockwise direction. The train exits into another descending helix, this time a double helix that turns in the clockwise direction, followed by the final brake run and return to the station. The original roller coaster was called Air Race. The train had 6 little multicolored aeroplanes. In each plane four passengers could sit: 2 in the front row and 2 in the back row. This train was operational between 1987 and 2005. The track itself was painted in bright yellow. In 2006, the theme of the ride was changed to match the style of the main Wild West theme of Bobbejaanland, and the name was changed to Dream Catcher. The airplanes were replaced by a train which is also used on inverted roller coasters. The tracks were repainted in a reddish-brown rust colour. Dream Catcher was the fourth hanging roller coaster ever built since the modern roller coaster was introduced, and the first in Europe. Since the Big Bad Wolf closure at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in 2009, Dreamcatcher has been the oldest working hanging roller coaster in the world.

  • Nightmare Motel 05/08/2018 15h41 Opened in 2016, this attraction is a combination of a haunted house and an escape room. Visitors are confronted with actors and shock effects while trying to escape. A 'hotel visit' costs 5 euros per person (2016) and the experience takes about 20 minutes. Maybe something I might do the next visit. Bobbejaanland Bobbejaanland is a theme park in Lichtaart, Belgium.

Bobbejaanland contains about 50 attractions, such as the Waterslide (1980), the Giant wheel (1976), Indiana River (indoor waterslide, 1991), the Revolution (a dark Rollercoaster, 1989), the Speedy Bob (roller coaster, 1998), the Air Race (suspended roller coaster, 1987, now named Dreamcatcher), the longest junior roller coaster in the world, 'Okidoki' (i.e. 'that's all right', 2003/04), and the world's second Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter roller coaster, "Typhoon" (2003/04), with a drop angle of over 97°(a roller coaster with a fourfold loop and a free fall) and a Splash Battle, "Banana Battle", (2007) made by Preston & Barbieri. The giant Sledgehammer (a Giant Frisbee) reaches a speed of 110 km/h). In 1995 'Kinderland' (English: Kids' Country) was opened as an area for young children. Because Bobbejaan Schoepen was primarily a folk and country singer, the park is still partly themed as a western village (for example the El Rio White Water Rapids and the El Paso Dark ride). In the Star Theater, Las Vegas style shows are performed. Bobbejaan bought Zorro's horse from stuntman Casey Tibbs, but the animal was accidentally electrocuted by an exposed cable. He also acquired an ornate white Pontiac Nudie mobile decorated with American coins. In the winter of 2003 the park invested 12 million dollars in two new rides named the Typhoon and the Sledge Hammer. In a 2004 survey of 13 European amusement parks by Belgian consumer organisation Test-Aankoop Bobbejaanland was rated second after Phantasialand. In the early 2000s the founder was diagnosed with cancer and he sold Bobbejaanland to the Spanish-American Parques Reunidos group in April 2004. [ Wikipedia ]

  • Adventure Valley 05/08/2019 15h40 The theme is here something in between the Wild West of America around 1900 and Mexico. I don't know if it worked out well in detail, but it feels good. Bobbejaanland Bobbejaanland is a theme park in Lichtaart, Belgium. The park was founded by Bobbejaan Schoepen, a Flemish singer, guitarist, and entertainer who enjoyed international popularity in the fifties and early sixties. In 1959 he bought a 30 hectare marsh, had it drained and built a 1000 capacity venue that opened in December 1961 as Bobbejaanland. This developed into an amusement park and remained in his possession until he sold it in 2004. For its first decade after opening the park centered on water attractions and performance spaces. Numerous variety artists from the Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany appeared there. Following the advice of Phantasialand owner Gottlieb Löffelhard, Bobbejaanland evolved from 1975 onwards into a theme park, with rides becoming more important than music shows. It grew to fifty attractions with four hundred employees and received visitors from the Benelux countries, France, and Germany. As an independent family concern, it also supported educational and cultural projects. By the end of the seventies, Bob's wife Josée (a former opera singer and model) opened a museum with works of art from the Hopi and Navajo cultures, forming an extensive private collection of Native American art.

  • El Rio 05/08/2018 15h05 Loading and unloading of this wild water raft attraction is in the open air strange enough. But there is one Coca Cola umbrella! El Rio The rapid river consists of fifteen boats. There is space for a maximum of nine visitors per boat. Two special effects are encountered during the ride. In the beginning people were lifted by a wheel and the boat slides off a slide. This wheel was taken out of service in 2002. The track has a length of 320 meters and a height of ten meters. The second special effect is halfway El Rio. Here the boat sails around a whirlpool, after which it goes through a descent under the whirlpool.
