Visited with children 10 & 7 and we all enjoyed the park. Whilst the rides are not particularly white knuckle, there are some here which are quite different to similar rides at different parks. The Bengal River Rapids was good and the Jungle mission very good. The Bengal express ride also allowed you to get closer to the lions and... More

Not a large site but very interesting for us as we were on a tour and got to know a lot about the area. I imagine if you go alone you'll not 'get it' and think it just afew trenches.

We have done Bellewaerde Park on numerous occasions as part of Group travel. It is not Alton Towers , but it is great for young people and very safe. A nice range of attractions to suit most tastes. Some good Catering outlets. I particularly like the Grilled Bratwursts. Well worth a visit.

A nice fun day with lots of entertainment for all ages. Easy to find your way around and return to favourite rides again and again. Well worth the money.

Not the biggest parc, but still great for a good day out with family, friends or with kids. I wish they had more big attractions though. The food is expensive and not the best quality. Staff is okay but not the most friendly, and sometimes only french-speaking. The environment is great, they have elephants and giraffes, apes and goats, a... More

We arrived an hour before park opening in August, having seen the cars the previous day parked all along the main road outside. And we still joined a queue. Managed to get tickets and wait at the front gate for the park to open and headed straight for Huracan, which doesn't actually open until after half an hour after the... More

Not as big as some of the famous theme parks but loads to keep all ages occupied. What I really liked was that unlike it's most famous French cousin, there is lots to do for the smaller kids so they don't feel left out by being too small to go on some of the rides. My favourite was standing on... More

I didn't have a huge amount of time here and to be honest went mainly for the animals. I must say that the animals are beautifully looked after and of very high quality, I look forward to seeing their collection grow further! The whole park is very clean and tidy and decorated extremely well. The theming is just as good... More

My youngest son and I, plus relatives, visited Bellewaerde on August 10th, 2013. We were looking forward to the rides and enjoying time together. Almost immediately, it became obvious Bellewaerde doesn't have a 'no-smoking' policy within park bounderies. Everywhere we went, people were smoking. It was continuous; standing in line, at the picnic tables, around little kids, at the playgrounds.... More
