Typhoon is a steel roller coaster located at Bobbejaanland in Lichtaart, Antwerp, Flemish Region, Belgium. It opened on April 10, 2004 and is located where the Looping Star once was.

History[edit | edit source]

The roller coaster was assembled at Gerstlauer's facility in October 2003 for testing prior to its shipment to Bobbejaanland. This was only possible because the roller coaster does not have a permanent foundation.[1]
