Bellewaerde, Ieper (Ypres)

4.0
#2 of 19 in Theme Parks in Flanders
Visit a fairy tale-like castle turned amusement park at Bellewaerde. The attraction was once a nature and safari park, but in the 1980s it expanded to include themed rides geared towards families. The 54 hectare (130 acre) area juxtaposes landscaped gardens with rides like the Boomerang and the Screaming Eagle. If you want to try the water rides, such as the boat rides, wear clothing you don't mind getting a little wet. Visit some of the 300 animals that still live on the grounds and temper the thrills with the harmony of nature. Tickets are available at the ticket booth upon arrival, or you can purchase them in advance online for a small discount. The attraction is seasonal, so check times in advance.

    Very nice amusement park. There is not only rides. There are also animals. The Park is divided into several areas with almost all the name of a country. And in these, there are things that would be found in the country with their names. In the Jungle area, there is a boat trip during which we see animals from South America. In the Savannah area, there are lemurs, giraffes and zebras. There are also elephants of Asia but we can imagine that they are in Africa. In the area of India, there is a train that takes see Tigers and lions and leopards. What make us dream that we travel. Once in the day, there is a flight of raptors, short but that's worth it. The new attraction, the Dawson Duel is impressive.

    Please, young children will be happy to come back. Also for the adults there is opportunity to drink a beer. Though long queues, both for the restaurant and for the deli. Also for an ice cream, served sufficient waiting time be observed. The lack of advertised products (chicken breast) should be avoided

    Great rides, great staff and park. My only critasism is their new ride the Dawson duel. The main point of it is to race your friends but you don't get this option when you finally reach the top. We didn't even get released at the same time as some random in the next lane
