Our last visit was two years ago with Halloween - pretty disappointing. So we returned with our 3 year old son and I was so pleased to discover how lovely this park is in the summer! He had such a great time and the park attendants are amazing! Every time we went on a ride they welcomed us and then... More

I just love this park, it really has something for everyone. Not that crowdy when you dont go in the schoolholiday period i guess. Its a clean park, lots of attractions, small zoo..nice if you even just want to walk there. Alot of seats where you can take a rest and enjoy the view and the people walking there.

I didn't really know what to expect but I was thoroughly impressed with Bellewaerde - a nice zoo and plenty of rides with a lovely atmosphere. Would definitely return.

Me and my boyfriend visited here on May 9th 2015. As it was a Saturday we were dreading it being packed but it wasn't! It was busy enough to give a great atmosphere but the longest we ever queued all day was about ten/fifteen minutes and it was worth it every time. The Bengal Express through the big cat enclosures...

we had a fantastic day at bellewaerde. The park was quiet with no queue for anything and plenty for all the family to do. We visited in April on a detour on the way home from Disneyland. We spent around 5 hours in the park and never even got close to seeing everything. There is everything here from zoo animals... More

I visited Bellewaerde with some friends in mid-April 2015. We arrived around lunch time and soon made a bee-line for the rollercoasters. It is, overall a nice park, quite pretty in places. There are animals, some of which you can walk amongst. There are three rollercoasters, as well as water rides, a 4D cinema, various shows throughout the day, meet... More
