Details

Former status:SBNO from ? to 2014
Operated from 2000 or earlier to 2008 or earlier
Notes:Park drawings and a billboard seen on December 30th, 2014 show a purple colored family roller coaster. It appears, at least for now; this roller coaster will not be built.
Owner / Operator:The reopening of Parc Sindibad is the result of a French-Moroccan joint-venture. While several companies were involved, only Compagnie des Alpes is a known amusement park operator and the others are thought to be simply financial inventors. The park carries the small tag line "by Walibi".
Operating schedule:The history prior to Sindibad's 2015 rebuild and reopening is not clear. Satellite imagery from May 25th, 2000 shows a well established park. Imagery from May 11th 2001 shows the arrival of new rides including the roller coaster. Some of these new rides replaced prior rides -- suggesting the park was operational during this time. A September 19th, 2014 story by the Morocco World News discussing the park's upcoming 2015 reopening states the park originally opened in 2006. A coaster enthusiast's report from May 13th, 2007 stated the park was operating, but only the kiddie rides. A YouTube video uploaded on February 10th, 2010 appears to be a news report and has the Arabic title of "فضيحة حديقة سندباد بالدار البيضاء" or "Sinbad Park scandal in Casablanca" in English. The video contains many clips of a closed park.  An October 10th, 2011 photo report by Stefan Zwanzger shows the park abandoned and with rides in poor shape such as a collapsing ferris wheel.
