Do you like going to theme parks?

Growing up, I was always fascinated with theme parks. Our family is quite big, so it is not often that we can go to a theme park because it can get quite expensive. When I have a chance to go on an adventure, I usually go to theme parks. My husband and I have our fair share of experiences in theme parks back in our home country. Now that we have a family, we try to let our son experience the thrill of theme parks even at a young age.
In the Netherlands, there is also a wide selection of theme parks for every kid at any age. We have visited the famous Efteling. And we also have brought our kid to Disneyland Paris. Now that our kid is getting bigger, we try to get him comfortable around theme parks as well. For his birthday (and meivakantie), we decided to bring him to Walibi.

Walibi Holland, formerly known as Walibi Flevo, is an awesome theme park located in Biddinghuizen, Netherlands. It’s a place where thrill-seekers and fun-lovers unite for a day of adrenaline-pumping adventures It was originally called “Flevohof” when it opened in 1971, then “Walibi Flevo” in the late ’90s, and finally “Walibi Holland” in 2005.

Walibi is home to a bunch of exhilarating roller coasters and attractions. From “Lost Gravity” with its crazy inversions to “Untamed,” which is the only hybrid coaster in the Netherlands, there’s no shortage of heart-pounding experiences. One of the park’s standout rides is “Goliath.” It’s a monstrous roller coaster that ranks as one of the tallest and fastest in Europe. The view from the top is breathtaking, and the drop is a real scream-fest!
