Yes, the entrance fee is quite expensive. However, it is not any more expensive than any other main attraction and we learned the Dolfinarium uses approximately 600 kilograms of fish every single day. Dolfinarium is a full day of guaranteed fun for the entire family. Especially the shows are very good and fun for any age. Although I did not... More

The shows were entertaining for our kids even though they don't speak Dutch. They also enjoyed the playgrounds that are available in the park. As parents we did not appreciate the choice of (fast) fried food, but most of the park seems intended for the kids and they appreciate the menu. It's up to us to moderate. We don't expect... More

We've visited this park quite some times when we were both children ourselves. As an adult it is still entertaining however though most of the shows and demonstrations are focused on children and might be considered childish. Still there are three main shows and about ten demonstrations with different animals. Show times are planned so you can walk from one... More

It's a fun place to visit with your kids... but the place leaves you thinking what we as humans are doing with nature... The charge for adults and kids above the age of 4 is 24 euros. It is a small area with three major shows. 1. Seal show 2. Walrus show 3. Dolphin show called aqua Bella. The shows... More

Place is more for a family with kids. Main show is excellent. Remaining show are aahh okayish. Concern: Place is only for Dutch speaking ppl as all the shows are in Dutch. However if you have kids its worth is visit- ensure to ask for a English Map. In case you are a vegan; you might want to carry you... More

We paid Eur 105 for a family of 4! I thought it was outrageous. It was fun watching the seals and dolphins, but the shows were a waste of time. Most of it was talking, in Dutch (which we do not master) and very little action. My kids found it rather boring. Seems to be oriented for younger kids. The... More

Is this park worth the money? Difficult question actually ... I visited the park in the winter period and was a bit disappointed. First of all, let's be honest: it does not offer a lot of attractions. It actually fits in my backyard. Almost, anyway. The shows provided are okay for children, but it's not like it's top quality. Except... More
