Interesting experience
Aug 2020 • Friends
Great place to spend 2-4 hours. They offer some interesting movies and exhibitions about the flood of 1953 and the subsequent construction of the delta works.

Not at all Corina proof
Aug 2020
The info regarding the delta works are still Ok, but most of the park starts looking outdated. What disturbed us most is the unprofessional approach towards Covid-19. Hand sanitisers were empty at 11:00 am. No cleaning at all. Far too many people allowed in the pool/play areas. We just left the site early because we just did not feel safe at all. In fact unbelievable in an orange rated area.

On the website i thought it looked amazing, but i really dont get how they charge you 25 euro a person as an adult, its shameful. I paid 40 euro for me in my son and i feel conned.

The park is bad, the spaces for the animals small and the waterpark was just a small area and not as spectaculair as on yhe pictures/website, we have that across the road of our house and pay 7 euro for that.

I spoke to more people there and they all felt the same.

Deltaworks dutch engineering
Dec 2019 • Couples
You can visit the inside of the deltaworks together with a guide who gives details and information about the history of this modern world wonder of engineering. The park is not only the deltaworks but also a waterplay park for kids, sealshow sealio show, aquarium, information about the flood disaster in 1953. For the guided tour you need to pay 3,50 euro extra and a boattrip on the Oosterschelde is another 4 euro extra. All by all It's pretty expensive specially in autumn and winter because some parts of the park are closed.

Too expensive, bad signage
Oct 2019
We parked at the info center and first wanted to go for a walk. We found the info board but when we started looking for the coloured signs (each colour stands for a walk), we were not able to even find the starting point as signage is very poor.
Trying to reach the park, we followed the noises (as there were NO signs...again) ending up at a bus station hearing the seals noises, but blocked by a closed fence. A path did not look very inviting but led us to the entrance to the park.
Even though the next guided tour to the deltaworks was in 12 minutes, we were told we were to late. Instead of wating for 90 min. in a park that is not very much looked after, providing attractions for children only, we decided to go for the boat trip. 80€ for 3 adults for what was announced to be a 1h trip at the cashier‘s desk and on board the boat only was announced as a 45min trip (where have the 25% of length we payed for gone?).
The trip was just a waste of oil as leading to nowhere, no view worth mentioning, no information anyhow new to those who came a minimum informed or read the informations signs before boarding.
After doing the queue for the orcan-machine (not really interesting, but extremly noisy without ear protections which are not even adviced, fortunately safety glasses are), we just decided to leave and stop wasting our time and money.

We swam with Poo not sea lions
Aug 2019 • Family
So for about 100 💶 - we took 2 young children and 2 adults. So for that amount of money you’d expect a good deal- parity with Peppa Pig World and Legoland in the UK.

Sea lions and seal shows lasted about 10 minutes- ok but not sure about the morality of such things these days ... couldn’t see where they are actually kept,not sure about their welfare.

Aquarium completed in 10minutes . Shark tank ok and touching Rays but nothing else to look at really. ( probably another 8 tanks ) no exaggeration.

Then on to the best bit - the Water Park - orPoo Park -a salt water water park - no supervision or staff around. More Poo floating in the water than staff present.disgusting !!!!

The other bit was a strange dam system to play with - which In my opinion wasn’t suitable for kids - slippery, Sharp surfaces poorly designed ifmeant to be for kids.

Best bit was lunch 🥙

For not quite 100 Euros we were done in a couple of hours - save yourself the money it’s like a hastily arranged experience- rather thrown together and poor.

Very disappointed ☹️ Couldn’t wait to have a shower !

Expensive, but a good number of options
Aug 2019
I like the time I spent there. I found that there was a lot of things to do. Yes, it's expensive, you pay for parking and the guided tour as extras, but it was expected given the magnitude of the work and the park. So I'm not gonna let that cloud my judgement.
The inside exposition is poor, nothing much to see, BUT you must experience the 1953 storm revival show. That was something else. You enter into a room, carefully decorated as one of the houses affected by the disaster. The sounds and the effects are quite realistic.
Then on to another area where a 180 degree big screen will wow you with the events. Totally worth it.
Outside there are lots of options, especially for kids, like the playgrounds, the big slide, the little train ride, the sealions show, the aquarium and more. We didn't have time to do the rest.
The guided tour to the barrier starts slow, with some dated displays, but what really matters is going outside to actually see it! And that does not disappoint.
With kids, prepare to spend a few hours there.
Without them, you can get the interesting things done in about 2 hours.
Oh, and I liked the food at the restaurant - but again, expensive!

Wonderful and surprising museum
Aug 2018
This was such a surprise. This museum is in one of the caissons like the ones used in the great flood of 1953 that killed 2000 people in Holland and Belgium when a dike broke. This museum shows the fascinating history of dikes in the Netherlands and how the caissons were used to repair the huge breach in 1953. It is a wonderful museum and well worth the visit. It highlights the ingenuity, tenacity and resilience of the Dutch people and teaches us all a lesson in disaster management and how to survive it. The area also shows the new kind of dikes being built today which are so different to the old style and how they are dealing already with the rising seas due to global warning. This is a must see museum.

Amazing engineering
Jun 2019 • Friends
The park itself is not much. There is a small aquarium and kids water park. However, the tour of the enormous 6 dikes shows the ingenuity of the Netherlands engineers and scientists in protecting the Netherlands after a huge storm in 1953. Its expensive, 50 euros for 2 seniors, but the guide was very informative, the models of how it was installed were very interesting.

With an overcast windy April in mind this rating is generous

Traveling from New Zealand on a family trip to highlight my Dutch heritage, a must was to include Neeltje Jans for my children and grand children to experience. I should have checked reviews and saved myself an embarrassment. In short overrated, overprised and under delivered.
