“Beautiful place with unused possibilities”

Deltapark Neeltje Jans
Reviewed April 8, 2014

It was nice visit, but I was disappointed with the level presented by the park.
Beautiful design and engineering but poor park. I feel sorry for the animals that every couple of hours doing the same old boring tricks.
From nice things - I really enjoy storm simulator and inside of the whale.
I'm happy that I was there. But I don't want to go back again. Trip for one time in my opinion.

It was a real privilege to view the coastal defences of Zeeland which have been amazingly transformed over the last 50 years - and at Neeltje Jans you get the only good explanation of how it was achieved. You also get the chance to see the barriers close to. For all that it was worth going there.

But the park is very tired; the introductory film is very interesting, but in need of refreshing to modern standards; the exhibition exhibits confusing, muddled and totally passive; the catering very slow even on a slow day. If you expect it to be a theme park, prepare for disappointment.

The good: a fascinating insight into Dutch water management, some worn out but entertaining and educating water games for kids (my son really enjoyed them)...

The bad: worn out, tired, ridiculously overpriced for what it is on offer, many exhibits not working and/or poorly conceived, dire lack of maintenance ....

This place was probably well worth visiting in the 90's when it first opened (and the prices were no doubt cheaper). Since then it looks like nothing has been updated or maintained. The whole place feels like it is dying a slow death.

It pretends to be a water park.
We went there for the Delta Works exhibition and the Oosterscheldekering.

The Oosterscheldekering is worth the visit. The park isn't value for money...paying 100 euro's for an exhibition that has not been maintained, for a waterpark that offers only a sea-lion show a seals show and some water-playground for the kids up to 12 and one waterslide that is supposed to be a rollercoaster....

I wish we had not gone to Neeltje Jans, and I really don't think it is worth the effort. Fine sea lion show but it only lasted 10 minutes. The boat trip was waste of time, and personally I was in a que for an hour waiting to try the orcan simulator which was really nothing. Go to Efteling instead - og Breda or Amsterdam!
