Bellewaerde, Ieper (Ypres)

3.9
#1 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums in West Flanders Province
Visit a fairy tale-like castle turned amusement park at Bellewaerde. The attraction was once a nature and safari park, but in the 1980s it expanded to include themed rides geared towards families. The 54 hectare (130 acre) area juxtaposes landscaped gardens with rides like the Boomerang and the Screaming Eagle. If you want to try the water rides, such as the boat rides, wear clothing you don't mind getting a little wet. Visit some of the 300 animals that still live on the grounds and temper the thrills with the harmony of nature. Tickets are available at the ticket booth upon arrival, or you can purchase them in advance online for a small discount. The attraction is seasonal, so check times in advance.

  • In sunny weather a day is Bellewaerde blissful! Much green, the kids are playing, too bad everyone thinks so! Sometimes long queues. But to relax and enjoy the surroundings (animals, plants, etc...) This park may be there too! Personally: We have a year pass and can go frequently. For us it doesn't matter much. To visit once on busy days this is expensive! You are waiting for many hours. The park is open for 1 hour longer on busy days!

  • Big attraction park with my different options. Could be more organized to cut down waiting times to get in the attractions because it really takes a while.
  • The greatest time I have had in my life, if your anywhere near this place you have to go. It has so many rollercoasters and animals here it will take much more than one day to feel satisfied with the amount of activities to do here.
