Bobbejaanland, Lichtaart

3.3
#1 of 8 in Theme Parks in Antwerp Province
Experience the theme park of one of Belgium's much-loved performers at Bobbejaanland. Founded in 1960 by Bobbejaan Schoepen, a Flemish musician and entertainer, the attraction was owned by the same family until 2004. It began as a performance venue with seating for 1,000 people, but slowly evolved into a theme park with rides; today it boasts over 400 employees. Josée Schoepen, Bobbejaan's wife, also amassed a large collection of Hopi and Navajo artwork, one of the rare collections of Native American art in Europe. The 50 attractions, which will make you scream and laugh in turn, include roller coasters, water slides, traditional carnival rides, and shows. Many of the park's rides are intense, with bragging rights as some of the fastest and longest roller coasters in Europe. Buy tickets online or upon arrival. Bobbejaanland is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Lichtaart Edition.

  • On a school trip often fine days spent in this park, good memories. By then if the beauty that the park had to offer remains today not much left! A piece or 5 attractions were closed, the paint crumbled along all sides of the wall and of the attractions. Here they certainly no longer see me the next few years, regrettable.

  • Bobbejaanland, in whom this is not nostalgia? This was once my favorite amusement park, there don't shoot much more of about. It's really a pity that this park is no longer well maintained. Everywhere you see that there is too little investment. After our last visit in the summer of 2017 we must regret that this is really the last time was that we visited. After that, we read a lot of negative comments on the internet. VERY SAD!

  • Been to Bobbejaanland in October with the children. The attractions are fun and the creepy mazes are just top. Highly recommended with Halloween.

  • The staff is good. The rollercoasters are quite thrilling. This theme park is good for all ages. The food served here is quite expensive and not of amazing quality. There are plenty of parking spots, if the parking lot is full you could park across the street so it's very rare that you can't park.
  • Bobbejaanland is a theme park in Lichtaart, Belgium. The park was founded by Bobbejaan Schoepen, a Flemish singer, guitarist, and entertainer who enjoyed international popularity in the fifties and early sixties. In 1959 he bought a 30 hectare marsh, had it drained and built a 1000 capacity venue that opened in December 1961 as Bobbejaanland. This developed into an amusement park and remained in his possession until he sold it in 2004.
  • The halloween house were well made, and the actors did there very best. Overall the park has nice attractions. I found that most attractions missed some decorations or story. And the toilets are up to renovation.
  • One of the best amusement parks in Belgium! You definitely need a whole day to experience the whole park. If it’s a nocturne you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the park! The photo is one of the attractions: The Revolution/Mountamara
  • Such a nice place for both adults and children
