Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: It’s all about kids here, where theme park rides and dolphin shows reign supreme. Water rightly takes center stage here, whether you’re talking the Orca-themed water slide, pirate ship, or daily show within the indoor Dolfinarium.

“Awesome is just the word”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

We visited on Saturday 4th May and we were I guess 4/5th in the entry to the park.
The park is 1.5 KMS from the station Brugge and you can easily walk rather than taking a bus/taxi etc.
We did walk and in 20 min we were there, its a straight road from the back side of the station all the way to the park.
The park is just so good that we managed to leave just before closing hours.
I still feel we would need more time but since the weather was so chilly we had to leave as we had to catch the train back to Brussels.
I think with Kids, it is best park to go and it has been one of the best attraction so far in my visit in Europe.
I recommend you please take enough food with you as food in the restraunt may be expensive.
Otherwise, all the rides are free as part of the price.
You should visit all the shows, mainly the Dolphins and the Otaries....amazing.
Take Pics with them, it is paid once but worth a life time.

“The best place in Bruges so far”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

We visited on a cold April day and were glad to be able to go on the rides and see the performing animal shows after finding Bruges rather disappointing to visit on the whole. The animals looked to be in very good condition although we were surprised at the smell of chlorine in the dophinarium as the chemical is not good for the animals and it says on their website that the pool is saltwater! The rides are not particularly spectacular and it was slightly worrying to have a team of men looking at the swinging boat and shaking their heads while we were on it, but overall we enjoyed the visit and it's great for children, the limits mean there is not much for adults to go on.

“Great shows”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

A nice park and a beautiful show in the Dolfinarium with seals and dolphins ofcourse. A good way to see what they can teach those clever animals. Worth a visit with or without kids ..;when you love animals ..

“great trip with young children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

The dolphin-show is unique! We go there very often because we have season tickets. In winter we go to the indoor playground and the dolphin show. In summer we go to the outside theme park. It is great for young children. Don't expect the most spectacular attractions. There is a huge playground in the park and you can bring your own lunch. I don't recommend to eat lunch there, it is very expensive and very poor quality
