Fantastic

This is one of the best parks in Belgium. Very friendly people and you got a reduced ticket when you are a person with a handicap. With that ticket you never have to queue for a attraction in the park. You really must visit this park. Super. There is a lot to visit.

Better then expected.
Aug 2019 • Family
Even though it was relative busy the queue time weren’t that bad. Longest was half hr. Have to say we were surprised, it’s much more modern and a well kept theme park then we was expecting. Yes some of the rides are quite old but the park didn’t feel neglected. Staff were polite and helpful not like the last 2 we had visited where staff are rude and have no customer skills (Duinrell & Walibi) both in Holland. If your ever going past Ypres. You must swing by and add it to your itinerary. There is something for the whole family.

2 great days, worth every penny
Jul 2019 • Family
We travelled from the UK to spend two days in the park with our seven year old grandson. He loved every minute here.
We didnt really look at any of the animals apart from a cursory glance. But the rides were great. Dawson duel was one of our favourites along with Huracan
As we had travelled during a couple of the hottest days in July, the water rides were most welcome. as were the cooling water misters blowing out. It was nice to see most of the queuing areas are under cover as well.
Compared to most of the uk parks, the prices here are very very reasonable 2-4 euros for ice cream etc.
Glad we made the journey. I can highly recommend this park

A day long visit spent with friends and young people in a group
Jul 2019 • Family
We spent a day here doing the themed rides at Bellewaerde

The park is themed with Indian, Canadian, Jungle, Western and Maya to enjoy and
absorb the instant atmosphere.

Then there are the rides. If you get the app on download, you can access a guide to approximate ride waiting times. There are also paper layouts (on map) of where the
rides are, so its possible to follow where things are, once you are in the park. The range of rides is good and there is plenty here to enjoy, from ages 3 and up. The ones we choose were the Bengal Rapid River, El Toro, River Splash, Boomerang, Piratenboot and Screaming Eagle. I haven't had such fun in a long time :)

There are plenty of animals to see at the park. You can see if you browse the photo selection. When we were there, we only noticed one elephant. They seemed happy and well looked after with enough room for them.

Lastly, can I say thank you and best wishes to your staff?! They are a credit to the park. The security people make you feel safe, at the entrance and should you go out of the park, your wrist is stamp marked to note this.

The ride staff and those who operate the rides check the secure bars to keep you in
well and are great with the kids and adults alike.
The grounds keepers and janitors are excellent. The park is clean to bring kids to and the sanitary/bathrooms are kept well. I would recommend this park to anyone.

It would be great to return sometime, in the coming years.

Once again, many thanks to everyone. Good times were had by all!!

It's a beautiful park. But it was very crowdy when we got there and we had to wait a lot of time at the queue. We got there around 14.00 and we didn't have a discount (the park would close at 18.30)and we didn't manage to ride a train. I think we gave a lot of money for nothing. They didn't tell us anything about the waiting times at the entrance and no fast pass exists.

Ok theme park, could be better
Apr 2019 • Family
Spent a few hours here with the teenage kids after a tour of war memorials.
It served it's purpose of some light relief.
Some good rides (boomerang, Dawson's duel, rapid river and river splash).
We were on discount preseason tickets so not all rides open and quite a few fellow customers were discount hunters, which made for a lively atmosphere.
As preseason didn't suffer the wasp issues others mentioned and toilets were clean.
Food outlets were busy, but think we mistimed that to coincide with when other folk had planned to eat around the stunt/lumberjack show.
probably best to plan to go on rides or eat near the show just after it starts.
Also, don't make same mistake we did, remember to buy car park ticket at main entrance before you leave

Day of fun for the whole family
Nov 2018 • Family
We chose to go to Bellewaerde during the Halloween period. The entire park is transformed into a horror park, child friendly of course, and all the attractions even have new names. Theme this year was Fiësta Mortal, based on the Mexican Day of the Dead. There were 4 new haunted houses and 2 new shows, all specially for the Halloween period. Amongst all of this you can also still visit the animals, such as lions, tigers, elephants, zebras, monkeys and giraffes to name but a few. But Halloween or not, this park is good for entire day of dun for the whole family.

Superb again.
Aug 2018
Family of five (2 adults, 2 late teens, one early teen). We have visited Bellewaerde several times over the past few years and each time we are not disappointed. Even though it was a hot sunny August day, the longest we had to queue was 20 minutes (are you listening Alton towers!). The restaurants were clean, efficient and had plenty of seating even at peak times. Even with the improvement works ongoing the park was a joy to visit.
Thoroughly recommended for children of all ages.

Waste of Money
Aug 2018
What a waste of money, overpriced food, filthy toilets, not all rides are functional. Wont be back, extremely expensive compared to the Efteling. Animal in closures stink unusually so.
