HELP

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

History

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

Typhoon opened on 10 April 2004.

In 2019, Typhoon was given a repaint.[2]
