Pinay’s first theme park Hellendoorn Holland reviews

About in what I observed:

Avonturenpark Hellendoorn is a family theme park which is located in Overijssel Hellendoorn. The park was founded in 1936 by Jan van den Berg and began as a simple tearoom and with a terrace. This family amusement park of the Netherland have like over 30 attractions and shows for the whole families and friends. In 2016 this park was proclaimed the best rated amusement park through Holland.

This amusement park is 3 hours driving from where I am living. It was a long journey but it was worth ed.The staff are quite nice, easy to approach and they can speak 3 languages,which are Dutch, German and English. The restaurant is easy to find and also the comfort room. This a little small from the other park we where visited but the clean surrounding with so many trees and flowering plants make this park unique. A little old modern but to those who like to roam around without falls in line, it’s this park for you. And you can seat everywhere you want because so many benches and really refreshing cause it is a nature park. The price for the ticket are totally fair.

As,what I said this park have more like 30 attractions to rides in. Here are the most popular of this theme park:

This was our first visit in this amusement park but not the first rider on a coaster.Maybe I was expecting more thrill in this or I was comparing this to the big amusement park I has been.This amusement park normally built for family purposes not for thriller. So here we are our first ride here at Hellendoorn amusement park.


1.TORNADO-This attraction the first one we decided to be on ride with my daughter. It was not so bad at all. My daughter hop into this coaster for how many rides alone. It was not crowded so we feel free to ride in this coaster. So many children like this coaster while there the same as my daughter, just seating and waiting tell it is run again. Thanks the operator was so nice that they just let the children’s seat and have fun at the same time. My daughter was even so proud and already was so very comfort with the operator that there even playing high five every time the coaster pass by where he was standing. So cool to have that kind of staff inside the park.

2.DONDERSTENEN-This coaster is like the boomerang from toverland, the difference are this one is an outdoor ride while from toverland it is indoor ride which this for children and adults. We ride this for how many times and it was also amazing specially there’s two time rides every time it runs. My child really have fun with this coaster.

3.WILD WATERFALL-The one I like from this ride,that there was a splashed across the fairway just before the tunnel. It was totally fun with my family. For me it was trilling while the water is really wild. And the good thing with this ride, it’s summer and it is made us refreshing.So every time we are exhausted from roaming around and also from the heat we just go in here and had some fun and wishing that the water will splash into us. Very amazing ride I ever had here in Hellendoorn.

4.MONORAILS-This attraction was the best ride I ever had here. While we are seating and having fun with the beautiful views, we decided to eat our snacks. It was breathtaking that I can see the beauty of this park through this old timer monorail. We had so many rides in this for relaxing.

5.GALJOEN-This swing boat ride made me dizzy, crazy that even I already know what’s going to happen still I hops in here and had some fun with my daughter. But now that I know,I sat in the middle of this boat ride so that less dizziness.

6.DISCOVERY CLUB-This attraction is a dark ride with a laser gun. We really had fun shooting with those statues. We also hops in into this ride for so many times.

So after all this rides, it is time for my little one to have fun, so we go to the children’s attraction. There she hops in from different kinds of rides. She had so much fun that she doesn’t even want to live this park.

Then the day was over. Time to drove back home. It was almost dark and inside the car my eldest have so much to tell, cant stop talking and so excited that she have stories to tell to her teacher. Will it was tiring day but I know, we had so much fun that day.
