Perfect little theme park for toddlers!
Lying 5km (just a 15 minute drive) outside of Bruges centre is the fantastic Boudewijn sea themed Amusement Park and Dolphinarium. This place has everything you need to keep little ones entertained! It is fairly small and easy to get around yet has so many theme park attractions, a mini farm, dolphin and sea lion shows, indoor and outdoor play areas and an outdoor splash pool with a toddler area, all rolled into one! Oh and various places to eat and drink too.
It is a wonderful day out for toddlers and babies as they can marvel at the dolphin shows and meet the goat, sheep and chickens at the mini farm! Small children are entranced as the lights go down and the music comes on in the Dolphinarium and you can see the Dolphins swimming in the large tanks before performing some clever trick! We love this park because there are actually lots of little rides which toddlers can go on and everything is within easy walking distance from one another so you can cover a lot of ground. These are our top tips for keeping toddlers entertained at the Boudewijn Seapark:
Bobo’s Indoor Play Area:
This is one of the first things you see as you enter the park and even if it’s a hot, sunny day it is still worth popping in here for a play before you leave. Bobo’s play area is a 2500m2 area of bouncy castles, ball pools and soft play equipment and is suitable for walking babies and older.
This large outdoor spray and splash area, is, like the rest of the park themed on the sea and has a boat as its central feature with fountains and jets of water coming off it. It also has 4 slides and 4 smaller slides for babies and toddlers as well as the main attraction of a large bucket which fills with water and then splashes on everyone! The water is only 30cm deep so is great for toddlers and babies. This is a fairly new addition to the sea park and is great on a sunny day. There is a large grassy sunbathing area next to the aquasplash too for drying off, relaxing and eating ice creams ! Make sure you pack swimming things!
The Orca Ride
This whale themed little rollercoaster is a very exciting attraction for your little ones as children as little as 85cm tall are allowed on with an adult. It doesn’t go upside down but it does have a few dips which will make your toddler squeal with delight as they whoosh up and down.
The Dolfi Swing
This lovely ride allows toddlers from 85cm tall (accompanied) to ride on the back of a dolphin and go up and down and round and round!
The Kiddy Fun Sea Themed Play Area
This large and varied outdoor play area is split into 5 sections and has something for all ages including a ball pool and various slides and climbing structures.
This is another fabulous play area with wooden climbing structures, a sandpit, slides and rocking animals.
“Great second visit. Fantastic dolphin and seal and sea lion shows”
It’s great to have an adventure playground park and animals together – we have really enjoyed the dolphin shows and seals, sea lions shows – how clever those animals are!! Really would like to visit yet again and there are plenty of other things to do – lots of rides, water park and much more! A great day out!!
