For a country of its stature, Belgium packs in rather a large amount of amusement parks. There are many to choose from, but Walibi Belgium and Mini-Europe are two of the best places to start. Walibi Belgium is arguably the country’s most famous amusement park and lies 24 kilometres south-east of Brussels. It’s a full day out with thrilling rollercoasters, gentler rides for younger children, live shows and plenty of eateries. Right beside it is Aqualibi, a large indoor waterpark offering a complex of pools, tubes, cascades, Jacuzzis and hot baths. Mini-Europe on the other hand, takes visitors through the whole of the European continent in just a few hours. Amongst its perfectly crafted 350 miniature settings, visitors can see faithful reproductions of important sights such as the canals of Venice, London’s Big Ben and the Berlin Wall.
