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.

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..... more »
Well maintained and a good range of rides, suitable for all ages. Would recommend bringing your own picnic; the food is pricey but not outrageous. Pretty much a full day's entertainment, if you are tall enough to go on all the rides. We had a great time.
I went to this theme park with my sister twice in two months and we loved everything. Usually on weekdays and Saturdays is when it is not crowded but it will be on Sundays and holidays. I loved the animals here and their adult rides or attractions make you want to ride it 4 times on your visit.
