Duinrell is one of the best theme parks of the Netherlands with many great attractions and one of the biggest water parks in Europe with dozens of fun and exciting slides. The holiday park Duinrell even has its own campsite and bungalows, located nearby the beach, so you could spend your whole vacation here.
Most attractions in Duinrell are mainly suitable for children under the age of about 12. For small children Duinrell offers a big playground with lots of slides, a merry-go-round, a Ferris wheel, mini golf, a mini train, a bicycle monorail, a traffic playground, trampolines and paddle boats. Kids just love the exciting slide from which you can whizz down on a cloth. On a rainy day the indoor playground is the place to be, but children that love to get wet could ride the bumper boats. Daring kids will have fun in two family roller coasters: the little frog roller coaster and the all new Dragon Fly, a 361 meters long and 15 meters high ride.
You are not a chicken? Do the toboggan run and ride down with a dazzling speed 50 km/h from a the highest point in the wide surroundings or get sick in the rocking boat. The Splash ensures that you end up soaking wet when your tree trunk shaped boat boat falls down a white river. Fortunately, there are boats with a roof as well, so you could stay dry if you want to.... For the real daredevils take a ride in the Falcon coaster. This insane roller coaster makes a straight dive down from a height of 22 meters and runs with 70 km/h through loops, corkscrews and boisterous turns!
In additon to the attractions, kids can visit a number of shows in Duinrell like the spectacular summer show within the summer theatre, a puppet show for small children and several other Dutch spoken shows.
Theme parks like Disneyland or De Efteling have roller coasters as well, but the Tiki Pool is the icing on the cake of theme park Duinrell! This swimming paradise offers any water slide you could possibly imagine. Who dares to jump down into the superfast slides Blits and Flits, in which you can slide down at a speed of 60 km/h, or dive into the dark water slides of Moonlight and Starfright. If you don't have the guts, you could go for the Family Slide / Super Slide, easy going slides with a length of over 100 meters or float down the lazy river on a rubber band. At regular intervals, the Duinrell main swimming pool turns into a thrilling wave pool.

" The shadow house is the best kept secret at Duinrell. Hilarious - particularly when you realise you can draw shapes with a phone LED."
" Had 2 nights here in a campervan - family with 2 kids (9&11). Very family friendly and although the pitches were a little more expensive, park entry is included so overall great value. Water and electricity are on each pitch but may not be close so make sure you have extensions! Also bikes are a must (or as we discovered 'hoverboards') as the supermarkets and toilet block may be a good 5 minute walk away. 2 full days at the park was enough to do everything fully."
" Amazing holiday for all. Fantastic for the kids and adults. On site theme park and tiki bad swimming pool were brilliant. Already booked again for next year . "
" Amazing facilities and wonderfully helpful staff. All signs are however Dutch though a huge amount of visitors aren't. Not all of the staff speaks great English, but they're generally all helpful"
" Amazing destination! Brilliantly thought out family resort. Kids loved the theme park and the water park. Great value for money! Bike and go kart hire was reasonable too. We'll worth hiring a bike and going off site to the local town or down to the beach. Use the supermarket in town though as the onsite one was triple the price! "
