Anubis The Ride is a steel roller coaster located at Plopsaland De Panne in Adinkerke-De Panne, West Flanders, Flemish Region, Belgium. It is a launched coaster from German company Gerstlauer, which opened on 5 April 2009.
The attraction is the largest roller coaster at the park, and the first one at the park with inversions. Anubis was the fastest roller coaster in Belgium from its opening until Pulsar opened at Walibi Belgium in 2016.
The coaster was repainted in the 2022 season, closing just after the summer. The colour scheme was not changed.
The theme of the ride is based on the Het Huis Anubis (House of Anubis) television series owned by Studio 100, who also own the park. In the series, students find a long-hidden treasure in the attic of their boarding school (Het Huis Anubis) and embark on a search for treasure. The station and queue line are enclosed in a mock-up of the school and the darkened queue passes through scenes relating to the series.
Anubis is the Egyptian god of death.
The ride has an LSM launch, which leads into an almost-vertical ascent.
When the car leaves the station, it makes a right turn. It then launches to 90 km/h into a hill with a twist to the right on the descent. It then ascends into a dive loop. After the dive loop, the car climb an outside top hat. After the top hat, it enters an immelmann. Riders then approach the mid-course brake run. The train dives to the left and makes a right turn. After the corkscrew, riders hit the final brake run.
3 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 6 riders per car. Riders are held in by over-the-shoulder restraints.
