“brilliant day out for the family”

PlopsaLand De Panne
Reviewed August 26, 2010

We travelled from Dover to Calais on an early P&O ferry and drove just 45 minutes from Calais to Plopsaland de Panne in Belgium. A brilliant day out for the family with children of any age. P&O have a special offer at the moment of two tickets for the price of one but it's only 28 euros entrance anyway and 6 euro for all day parking. Plenty of places to eat and drink but they are quite happy for you to take a picnic. Plenty of things to do for any age. Several rollercoasters of varying excitement. Log flumes, train, carousel, shops, kiddie shows, plenty of ways to get wet! The whole place is clean and friendly. Better to buy tickets in advance online to avoid the queues. We caught an early evening ferry back from Calais to Dover and were home before midnight. A long tiring day but we managed 3 countries in one day and had a great time.

We visited Plopsaland in for the forth time, in early August this year, it just keeps getting better. Mainly aimed at younger kids, age about 4 to 12, but with plenty for the older ones and the parents to ride on. Queues, even at this time of year, were either non-existant or minimal (15 mins at most when we were there), unlike disneyland Paris, where you spend up to 90 minutes in a queue. Food and drink prices are reasonable in the park, so no need to carry packed food in with you, and there is a reasonable variety of choice in the various restaurants.
We booked and paid via "Lastminute.com" for £47 for 3 adults & 1 child (Children are classed as under 12) as opposed to about £100 on the gate, but you must state your date of visit. As well as getting in very cheaply you also bypass the queue at the entrance - just present your voucher at the entrance office and you're in.
If you're going on a very hot day take swimwear for the kids because they will want to run about in the fountains just inside the entrance and will get soaked.
One thing to be aware of is that the park starts to close the entrances to rides about an hour before the closing time, so don't leave it too late to have a last ride on one of the more popular rides. also, don't forget to buy your car park ticket before you leave to open the barrier - €6 for the day.
Will be going for the 5th visit next year.

We visited Plopsaland with two children (4 and 6 years) in Juli 2008. Excellent park, very clean and nice landscapes. Many different attractions to facilitate all ages. Nice shows and performances by studio 100 fugures (K3, Kabouter Plop, MegaMindy, Gert & Samson). Value for Money.

My wife, my kids (aged 7 and 5) and I visited PlopsaLand in October 2006. All I can say is that despite the miserable weather, we had an excellent time. This theme park is very much aimed at kids under 14 but that said there are rides to keep older ones occupied. Going in October mean't that we hardly queued so we had been on all the rides in a matter of hours. It is not unlike like Disneyland Paris in its layout but on a smaller scale. There is a train which travel around the park, rollercoasters (3 of them I think), log flume, tea cups, dodgems, tractors etc... There are also farm yard animals running free in large enclosures. I would recommend this park to anyone. We drove here as we were staying in Brugge (Bruges) but the coastal tram stops right outside. The website is excellent provided you can read French or Dutch. Big thumbs up. By the way, in case you're wondering, a plop is a type of gnome.
