Walibi Belgium, formerly Walibi Wavre and then Six Flags Belgium, is a Belgianmarker theme park located in Wavremarker, close to Brusselsmarker. During the 1998 to 2004 period, it was owned by Six Flags, Inc, an Americanmarker theme park operator. It was later sold to Palamon Capital Partners. As of 2006, the park is owned and operated, along with Paris's Parc Astérixmarker, by CDA Parks (a division of Compagnie des Alpes).The Walibi name comes from the mix of Wavremarker, Limal and Bièrges, three towns in the province of Walloon Brabantmarker, in Walloniamarker.

History

The park was founded in 1975 by Eddy Meeùs under the banner "Walibi Wavre". In its early years, it was known as a water-skiing area. About a decade after, in 1987, a waterpark, Aqualibimarker, opened next door.

In 1998, the park was bought by Six Flags and, three years later, Walibi Wavre changed its name to Six Flags Belgium.

In 2004, Six Flags sold its European division to Palamon Capital Partners, a London-based investment company.

On November 7, 2004, Six Flags Belgium officially became part of the past. The park reopened its gates on March 26, 2005, bearing the "Walibi Belgium" name.

In 2006, the park was taken over by CDA Parks, a French leisure group.
