It’s all about kids here, where theme park rides and dolphin shows reign supreme. Water rightly takes center stage here, whether you’re talking the Orca-themed water slide, pirate ship, or daily show within the indoor Dolfinarium.

Great dolphin show

We went as a family, (grandparents, parents and 2 girls aged 8 and 10). There was plenty to keep the girls occupied, although I suspect that in a couple of years time, it would... read more

The Dolphin show was really too good. This place is an ideal location for family. Must visit if you are in Bruges.

Easy to get to by bus from the station & a wonderful day awaiting. From the sealions to seals and dolphins, from the (all-included) rides--the orca roller coaster was a special hit--to the amazing waterpark with its fun-filled deluges, this is one of the best day outs we've had with our primary-age kids. Plenty for younger children too--like the mechanical... More

We went as a family, (grandparents, parents and 2 girls aged 8 and 10). There was plenty to keep the girls occupied, although I suspect that in a couple of years time, it would be too tame for the older one. The roller coaster, the drop tower and the boat slide were the favourites. Although it is sad to see... More

The Dolfinarium-show is a must see. Around this location there are many attractions free of cost, except consumptions, for any kinfd of age. You only buy a ticket income, not expensive.

With bad weather forecast for Bruges on Easter Monday, the seapark was a decent option for the kids, primarily due to the excellent soft play. There were vouchers available online and a small discount applied, however be warned it is still around £60 for a family of four to get in. So with that in mind we decided to make... More

but I was mainly impressed that something that old and not well maintained was stil functioning. We only visited the dolphinarium and the indoor playground (bobo), the playground needs a major and I mean major renovation.

So... The dolfinarium first. Let's say I understand in a place like Belgium, they have no choice but to make an indoor dolfinarium. However, it's just sad for these animals. I really think they don't enjoy swimming around in an indoor pool. The shows are nice and all, but I just feel really bad for them. I remember when I... More

The attraction park is not very big and very good to visit with younger children. The attractions are not too wild. The dolphin show is marvolous and they have additional shows with other water annimals in high season. If you can spend the money you can book an experience to swim with the dolphins but make sure you plan ahead.

This theme park is a mix of animal park and amusement park. Their Dolphin show is really great and the the sea lion show is very funny. Our grandchildren had a great laugh during the show. There is a poolzone with a splash (not really a pool to swim but fun and amusement with slides and others fun attractions. Througnout... More
