Chenille Vallée is a steel family roller coaster located at Parc de la Vallée in Massais, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France.

The roller coaster was previously located at Nigloland, where it operated as Chennille (French for Caterpillar). A new roller coaster, Noisette Express, opened in 2020 and replaced the Chenille.[1]

Design

Elements

The ride travels through a giant fiberglass apple twice. Unusually, rather than clear a plot for the ride, the park built it among existing trees, meaning there are actually trees within the circuit.

Colour scheme

The ride used to have yellow track and green supports, but both track and supports where repainted green later on. The ride received dark orange track and green supports when it was relocated to Parc de la Vallée.

Trains

Single train with 6 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 24 riders per train.
