Visited this park and had a thoroughly good day. The Boomerang ride was excellent and a rival for Stealth at Thorpe Park! Loved the zoo animals too, particularly the really playful elephants - they are clearly well looked after there. When you think about the historical relevance of the site it's on it's amazing to think where you're standing!

Nice theme park with pretty gardens. Had many a good day here. Parking is expensive and the food pretty awful. But the attractions make it all ok.

We should have realised from the full-to-bursting car parks that we weren't about to have a relaxing day here. The park is built on the site of one of the biggest WW1 hell holes and, to be honest, some may say not much has changed. Crazy queues of 60-90 minutes for very mediocre, dated rides, made worse because of the... More

We've had tons of good moments in this park! Perfect day for our family among the animals and all the attractions you can do in the park for children from different age - from the little ones till 100 years old. :-)

It's been a few Years now since our last visit and the theme park is about the same as then. One new attraction 'The Hurricane', not bad but no real thrill ride, the beginning takes long and doesn't built up, had better rides. For a new ride in the Year 2013 You expect more of it. The boomerang is still... More

Visited on last Sunday in August with two small children, five and two. We had already been to plopsaland and this compared very favourably. Similar amounts of rides/activities for kids of 90cm - but no large indoor play area as at plopsaland (which had been helpful as it rained!). But Bellewaerde had the addition of zoo animals, which went down... More

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.
