#LikeMe Coaster is a Zierer Large Tivoli family roller coaster located at Plopsaland De Panne in Adinkerke-De Panne, West Flanders, Flemish Region, Belgium.

History

The ride originally opened as Keverbaan close to the park entrance. The coaster was renamed, rethemed and relocated when Meli Park was transformed into Plopsland, with the ride now occupying the spot of the former maze. The ride was now called Dongo's Race and was themed to the character of the same name from the Studio 100 series "Wizzy en Woppy".

This theme was in turn replaced by a theme based on the Kaatje series, which saw the coaster being renamed to Viktor's Race and opened in 2013.

The 2013/2014 off-season saw most of the track being replaced in a big renovation.

The ride got a third theme change in 2021, changing to the #LikeMe Coaster, based on the series of the same name.
