Okay, The Efteling, Heidepark and Phantasialand are still way up there, (Disney Paris as well, but has gotten way too expensive!), but Bellewaerde is definately in my top ten! (I think it's up there with Parc Asterix...).

Yes there is some room for improvement ( f.i.: put up signs where it says how long you will be in line for and I did wonder why some rides opened very late in the day), but overall I thought the rides were well taken care of, it was clean, staff was nice and polite, food (and beers...) were good and diverse and the unique concept of animals and attractions, even combined at times (with a small boat through the Flamingo-group, past other animals, or with the small train through the pack of lions and tigers!) is great! There's something to do and see for every age group, no one has to get bored. The diving-show was spectacular!

We were staying an a hotel nearby, which provided us with a coupon to get a discount ( I must admit, otherwise I probably would have rated the park as too expensive).
The high rate I gave here is mainly since I did not expect to be entertained this much here. I could have easily be entertained here for two days instead of the one day we actually went!

If you are using Public Transport then this may be bit of a mess to reach there.
I've seen much better parks with many rides, but this one was bit low compared to others.
The rush wasn't there so we could enjoy all the rides and by 4PM we were done.
Other parks takes ages to complete.
It has a mini zoo which was interesting, over all I feel it is a good day out and you can visit.

Although Bellewaerde Park looks a bit outdated, we had an amazing time!

The combination of nice attractions and wild animals is superb, everybody has something to do and see, no matter what the age is and the level of guts :) We were with a very diverse age-group (parents, young children, teens) and everyone had fun. We expected the park to be seperated in a part with the animals and a part with the attractions, but it was much better! The animals are really inbetween the attractions, and you get a good look at them, especially the lions! And, more importantly, the animals look really healthy.

In comparison with other theme parks, also the food they offer is of good quality!

We were there in the Halloween-period, and wow, the park really did a big effort to grasp the Halloween atmosphere! Great job!!

This attraction park is very nice. It has some cool rides, and is therefore ideal for kids and young adults. But also older people like it, because it is very green and you can walk for several hours.
