Untamed is a steel hybrid roller coaster located at Walibi Holland in Biddinghuizen, Flevoland, Netherlands. It is an I-Box Track conversion of the existing Robin Hood wooden roller coaster manufactured by Rocky Mountain Construction which opened on 1 July 2019.

History

On 6 February 2018, Walibi Holland announced on their Facebook page that Robin Hood was to be refurbished into a new experience for 2019.[1] It was later confirmed that the ride's structure would be reused to build an I-Box Track roller coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction.

In September 2018, Walibi Holland confirmed a few more details about the attraction. They confirmed that ride would have light brown rails and feature a "unique element".

On 28 October 2018, the day of Robin Hood's closure, the park announced that the ride would be named Untamed.[2]

By November 2018, track removal from Robin Hood was already well underway. Later in the month, the park also confirmed that the ride would be 119.8 feet tall.

In December 2018, track construction began with the installation of an outerbanked turn in the pre-lift section and the start of the ride's lift hill.[3]

It was later announced that the ride would have 5 inversions, the most on any Rocky Mountain Construction coaster.

The ride opened on 1 July 2019.[4]
