It’s all about kids here, where theme park rides and dolphin shows reign supreme. Water rightly takes center stage here, whether you’re talking the Orca-themed water slide, pirate ship, or daily show within the indoor Dolfinarium.

Dolphins and bad attractions

So... The dolfinarium first. Let's say I understand in a place like Belgium, they have no choice but to make an indoor dolfinarium. However, it's just sad for these animals. I really think they don't enjoy swimming around in an indoor pool. The shows are nice and all, but I just feel really bad for them. I remember when I... More

The attraction park is not very big and very good to visit with younger children. The attractions are not too wild. The dolphin show is marvolous and they have additional shows with other water annimals in high season. If you can spend the money you can book an experience to swim with the dolphins but make sure you plan ahead.

If you want to go on a picture with one it will cost you 20 euro (sea lion and seals 10 euro). If you want to go in the water with the dolphins... More

We (2 adults and 2 kids, 6 and 13) decided to spend a day in the park. As soon as we arrived, we could not get rid of the impression that the park was old,... More

The staff at both Dolphin and Seal were fantastic. There are few mechanical rides as well. A nice way to spend a day over there. Lot of activities for kids.

The dolphins, sea-lions and seals are kept in rather small basins. The sea-lions show is more entertaining for the little ones. The dolphin show is nice to watch, but be sure to be in the center, otherwise you'll be watching concrete. Most attractions are quite old and not very well maintained. Rust is showing in many of the attractions. The... More

Together with our granddaughter of 5 we visited the dolfinarium and the park. It is a quiet park with dolphins, sealions and seals. The attractions are perfect for younger children up to the age of 10. We never had to wait long to get into an attraction which is nice for children. The dolphin and sealion shows are great.
