Robin Hood was a wooden roller coaster designed by Stand Company and built by Vekoma. It opened at Walibi Holland in Biddinghuizen, Flevoland, Netherlands along with three other roller coasters in 2000, when Six Flags took over the park. This was one of only three wooden roller coasters from Vekoma, the other two being Loup-Garou at Walibi Belgium and Thundercoaster at TusenFryd.

History

Robin Hood opened in 2000 as part of a major expansion.

The ride underwent a retracking for the 2017 season.[1]

On 6 February 2018, Walibi Holland announced on their Facebook page that Robin Hood was to be refurbished into a new experience for the 2019 season.[2] It was later confirmed that the ride's support structure would be reused to build an I-Box Track roller coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction. The coaster closed on 28 October 2018. In 2019, Untamed opened to the general public.[3]
