Frozen was a steel roller coaster previously travelling with Xavier Lapère through France.

History

The ride was originally purchased by Kinzler, making the ride a travelling roller coaster. It was later bought by Walibi, where it opened at the park in 1978. It would continue operation until the end of the 1991 season, after which is was sold to travelling showmen Xavier Lapère. Lapère was planning to turn Babyland-Amiland in his own Walibi park; Walibi Ile-de-France. The project would eventually be canned and Lepère tried to regain his money with his travelling rides, including the Jumbo Jet. Lepère would eventually still gain ownership ow Babyland, and intended to open his Jumbo Jet and Jet in the park. Jumbo Jet has not been set up however, and is currently still in storage at Babyland.
