Aventure Parc

Reviewed By pgb2pgb - Brussels, Belgium

My wife originally found this Park, it's set about 20 minutes drive outside of Brussels in a lovely forest area. It's an activity park where you can climb amongst the trees, using specially designed courses to suit your abilities (yellow, green, red, black). The climbing courses are for all ages from 5 years upwards. You start off on the easy courses before building up to the more adventurous ones (which get higher and more active). Safety is 100% assured, you are supplied with a set of overalls (to keep your clothes clean), gloves (if required), a climbing harness (fitted by the staff), plus a safety line that allows you to go round each course (keeping you from falling if you slip).
The safety line hooks onto the start of each course, then as you move around it follows you (you also have to slide it past catch points on the sections in the course to ensure you don't get stuck). Even if you loose your footing all is okay as you are held in place by the safety line. Most courses are a mix of tunnels, zip wires, climbing nets and walkways... all suspended high up above the ground in the trees. the park has been built ecologically with flexible fittings to the trees so that they are not damaged and the courses can be adapted as the trees grow (no nails or bolts hammered into the trees).
We started off in the sun and then it rained, but being under the trees it didn't matter that much. The thrill of climbing around was great, plus the variety of different challenges made it exciting. The courses are open to both adults and kids, with the red/black courses limited to children above a certain height (but both our children aged 7 & 12 really enjoyed the green, red and black courses). Kids can climb without adults (if you don't feel adventurous enough to join them), but you do have to follow them on the ground level. Staff are all around on the ground to advise and help if anyone gets stuck.
They have their own car park (free), which can take all types of vehicles (cars, buses, vans etc). You have changing rooms to get into your overalls, plus lockers (1€ returnable with key). The staff are very friendly and speak different languages, so english is no problem. There's a cafe which offers standard food like burgers, hotdogs and sandwiches, etc plus coffees, chilled drinks and ice creams (you can sit inside or out as per the weather). If you want something more then you can also try the restaurant nearby outside of the park.
It was great value compared to other adventure parks, costing 27€ per adult and 23€ per child (above 7), plus kids from 5-6 years are 19€. You can spend as long as you like at the park, we went at 10.30am and didn't leave till 4.30pm, so it was a full on day out. We only left as everyone was getting really tired due to the climbing and walking around.
Overall I'd recommend it as an 'active' day out, wear good shoes (with grips), plus loose clothing for under your overalls so you can flex easily. We also took our own gloves (as they fitted well), but sun glasses are not recommended as the can fall plus you are amongst the trees so not really needed (if you wear glasses then take a neck line). Also get a good nights sleep beforehand as you will need all your energy for the climbing. Dogs are not allowed, but there is a public park opposite the entrance where you can walk your dog, etc.
Our favorite bits were the zip wires which are great fun... we will be going again... hopefully to try the evening climbs at night which also look great fun...

Walibi Belgium

Reviewed By Kouider_milan - Milan, Italy

If you are in Brussels you can spend the day with the family there.
Price are quite expensive for day ticket in case you are planning to go with family go for family pass so you can enter anytime with the entire family.
When you buy tour ticket pay already for your parking to avoid big line.
Make sure that you have some sun because if it will be raining you will not enjoy that much.
You have several choice of restaurant but i suggest you to bring with you fresh sandwiches

My son and his wife and three children (aged 8, 10 and 12) visited the water park today, stayed about 6 hours, and came absolutely thrilled with Aqua Walibi. They said it was clean, perfect temperature, fantastic fun, especially the rapids, and the staff were helpful. I was a little concerned that they might not like it compared to water parks in the USA. I needn't have worried, they said it was the best they'd ever visited!

Reviewed By jipigene - Grimaud, France

Pas d'emballement à la Maison Des Anniversaires. Assez simple et personnel correcte mais sans plus. Nous n'y retournerons plus. Il y a beaucoup mieux aux alentours.
