Tornado was a steel roller coaster located at Walibi Belgium in Wavre, Walloon Brabant, Wallonia, Belgium. Opened in 1979, it was one of the first roller coasters in Belgium to have inversions. The ride closed in 2002 and was standing but not operating while attempts were made to sell it. In 2006, the ride was demolished as it could not be sold. The former spot was reused for the short-lived Vertigo.
