Trip Planner: Europe / Belgium / Flanders / Antwerp Province / Lichtaart / Theme Parks / Bobbejaanland
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.

You'll find everything you like to fill a day, but Bobbejaanland still misses something. It used to be a tentsetter in the 80's, parallel with Phantasialand. Then the investments stopped and and older... more »
This is another amusement park we checked out during our summer camp at the Youth Profram I worked for. This had a nice, clean and f iendly park and staff. Teens liked these rides better than Walibi. more »

Nice but small park. We love the water rides. Still prefer the Efteling over Bobbejaanland
Fun attractions, but the park is not well organised. I.e. the lines cut straight through the paths, blocking the passage way, no indication of how long the wait will be when queuing. Several kid's attractions only had 1 perzon to manage them, meaning the run 1 at a time. The cleanliness in the bathrooms wasn't great. Lines to buy food were huge, with not enough sraff to handle massive crowds. Finally: they charge you 2€ for a park map, but it doesn't indicate the height restrictions. N You'd have to go to the attractions themselves for that, with some disappointments along the way.
This is very nice old school theme park! Not many ultra modern attractions but is quite entertaining. I recommend the dizzy rollercoaster. Also some restaurants available to eat.
Great rides. Lacking scenery.
I'm spoiled with the Efteling, but still good for a day out
