K3 Roller Skater is a steel family rollercoaster at Plopsaland De Panne in Adinkerke-De Panne, West Flanders, Flemish Region, Belgium.

History

Opened in 1991, this was the first Vekoma Junior Coaster installed. It had the now standard Roller skate theme upon opening at the park. The ride would receive a theme based on the Flemish children's TV show Wizzy & Woppy, produced by Studio 100, when they bought the former Meli Park. It was one of the many changes the park would face in its transformation to Plopsaland. The ride was rethemed in 2019, receiving a new theme based on the Flemish girl band K3.
