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

Wow, the park was so big we didn't manage to get round the whole thing but what a superb day out. So much for all age groups, rider for all ages, animals to see and lots of cafes and shops. Queues for rides quite long but to be fair we went in august during holiday. Would love to go back... More

visited on a boiling hot day with a party of families (kids 3-7) and had a blast. The whole park is very family friendly, the zoo delightful and everywhere was spotless. Makes some of the UK attractions look positively shabby. Recommended

My first visit to a theme park and I wasn't disappointed! From a 54 year old's perspective, I was born too soon..... The entry fee seemed expensive, but when you compare the cost of an individual ride at a show ground, it works out not bad at all. We went on a Monday and despite the fact the car park... More
