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.

It is the largest roller coaster at the park, and the first one at the park with inversions. Anubis was even the fastest roller coaster in Belgium from opening until Pulsar opened at Walibi Belgium in 2016.

Theme

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.

Design

Elements

The ride has an LSM launch, which leads into an almost-vertical ascent.

Ride experience

When the train leaves the station, it makes a right turn. The train launches up a hill. It then dives down into a dive loop. After the dive loop, riders climb an outside top hat. By the time the train drops, it enters an immelmann. Riders then approach the block brake. The train dives to the left and makes a right turn. After the corkscrew, riders hit the final brake run.

Trains

3 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 4 riders per car. Riders are held in by over-the-shoulder restraints.
