    What a let down. For almost 15 euro, What you get is a run down aquarium, 'pirate displays' that I can make better at home, a terrible 'pirate show' with no story and an actor moving his mouth to a di...  more »

    We wanted to actually go to the beach in Cadzand-bad, but the weather was not a success. So my girlfriend and I are looking for our 3 kids (girl of 5 and 2 boys 7 and 9) still entertained.. through Google we arrived at the arsenal, according to their website "the most fun attraction park of Zealand ' ... uhhhhm on arrival we had 5 x €13.95 ticking off what is not cheap but if the kids have, all good. We started at the fish on the ground floor, fun.. a ' Dory ' and ' Nemo ', a sort of crazy Snake (black spotted Moray) and also those dangerous piranhas. Unfortunately had to go to the bathroom and daughter soon so we packed up the escalator to the top. This came out on the 2nd floor. Quick Pee and.. We were in a piratenmuseun. Not really very interesting for the kids but there was still some out of it. When we were walking we came on the 1st floor, where it was pretty dark. Here found the smallest it is anything but fun. When we came to the talks (pirate skeletons) she was very alarmed and wanted them to go. After we sit down we are our travel ff are gone so back to fish. This went so fed and that was nice to see. The biologist told about the fish. Interesting. After this, let the kids play in the pirates ' island ' but this was so small that this fun was short-lived. The kids were done with it. And so we stood after a small one and a half hours weather outside. And that for 70 euros.. It was definitely not worth. Fortunately the Sun went 2 hours later and we are still seem delicious to the beach of Cadzand-Bad been what very good..

    In bad weather are like today even with the children (4J + 2J) to the arsenal. From the outset we knew that it only for our big "would be mainly of interest, this was also confirmed." From the outside it looks very inviting, but the great disillusionment came inside. You get not much about the old and new piracy seen on 3 floors. On the ground floor, you can see some sea animals in aquariums and caressing rays themselves what was quite fun for the children. The first floor mainly consists of a snack bar and a jungle gym for children. In the top gets you going to see something about pirates. Then there's still a pirates theatre ...was is not worth it... 10 minutes presentation and that was it. For almost 14,-€ per person (from 3 years +) it is hoped more. On the whole, this trip was not worth, children have become the most over a Pirate sword (formed from a balloon) looking forward... the whole thing was far too expensive.

    We loved the aquarium where you can touch the fishes. The playground for the children is also very nice. The venue is a bit overpriced though.

    Not worth its money. At all. Not only entrance (they charge 3 year olds), parking (there's a free parking available but good luck finding it as there are no - zero - arrows towards it from the entrance and the closeby parking is 2€ / hour, also the restaurant: you'll think *ok its overpriced but all theme park restaurants are* but (1) it's not a theme park and (2) wait until you see the portion. You're practically forced to ask for extra fries. (We complained about being expected to share one small packet of mayo and mini basket of fries with two people, got promised extra, got nothing. To be fair, we did manage to negotiate a discount, and the taste of what we did get was good.) For an attraction aimed at kids, only two baby seats for the entire restaurant... I saw quite some parents balancing babies on their lap to feed them. Although the inside is done up nice, fitting the theme, you quickly get the feeling its all rather platonic. The aquarium is (nice but) nothing special. The animated skeletons and pirate dolls are... Well... In a theme park you get those things to amuse you while you're waiting to get on the ride. Here it's just that, without the ride. There's a person making balloon swords, and this seems to be (expected to be) a very prominent part of the adventure. Against all expectations (I'm certainly not planning to go back) it manages to get overcrowded in the afternoon. It gets stuffy and hot. You don't feel comfortable letting go of your kids hand for a second. The last floor featuring a bar, has some attractions. A kid climbing area is free - for everything else you pay extra. Again trying to be fair here: similar games in theme parks tend to also cost extra. Although the entrance fee there covers most rides and attractions, whereas here... It seems to have all the bad points of a theme park, and none of the good ones. My conclusion: drive to Plopsaland instead. It costs a bit more, but you'll get much better value for money.
