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.

Small and rather dated theme park, but very nice place for small children!

The park could do with some refurbishments (e.g. walkways and attractions like "the venetian carrousel"), but it is still a nice place for toddlers and children up to about 8-9... read more

We went to the Dolphinarium at the beginning of September. We drove in and parked, without realising you need a parking ticket to get out! Signs are not in English. Had to go back to the desk to buy one. I realise these places need to charge, but parking was a bit expensive when added on top of the entrance... More

Never been here although I lived 38 Years in Bruges. The Dolphin show I watched a few Years ago when You could do it separate from Boudewijn Seapark. Now we did everything with a couple who has a 4-year old child. 25 euros entrance fee is very expensive for such a small park with only kid rides and toys. Also... More

The park could do with some refurbishments (e.g. walkways and attractions like "the venetian carrousel"), but it is still a nice place for toddlers and children up to about 8-9 years old. We bought our tickets via dagtickets.be, with were cheaper than Seaparks' own website, even with their discount codes applied... The dolphin show is the main attraction and is... More

So definitely try to get tickets for cheaper search on groupon or ebay. Age range for children to really enjoy its up to 10.but full range of activities for the younger ones over a metre and there is... More

The park attractions are mainly the shows, that are based at the <8-10 age category. There are 2 proper shows: the dolphins and the sea lions (which I think was quite hilarious, with the original 'Robbie' growing to 3 times his size during the performance.) I have seen better dolphin performances in the Canary islands though, but this was fair... More

We went here in easter, with our 7 year old son, the park itself was easy enough to find only because we had satnav otherwise you'd feel as though you were driving in the wrong place as the park is surrounded by a residential area. As you enter the park you are greeted by a man with a small parakeet,... More

The sanitary in this place is simply unacceptable, not the kind of facilities you'd expect for your children. That aside, it's a nice indoor playground. Your kids can easily enjoy themselves for a few hours. Lockers would be useful. I hope BoBo's will not go down the same road as the seapark (BoBo's is a separate part of the theme... More

We visited on Saturday 4th May and we were I guess 4/5th in the entry to the park. The park is 1.5 KMS from the station Brugge and you can easily walk rather than taking a bus/taxi etc. We did walk and in 20 min we were there, its a straight road from the back side of the station all... More

We visited on a cold April day and were glad to be able to go on the rides and see the performing animal shows after finding Bruges rather disappointing to visit on the whole. The animals looked to be in very good condition although we were surprised at the smell of chlorine in the dophinarium as the chemical is not... More
