Two splashing wild water rides, three spectacular rollercoasters, a swing carousel, a laser game, Dreumesland for adventurous toddlers, an outdoor Slide Park with eleven waterslides, a waterpark with sunny picnic areas and lots more! Avonturenpark Hellendoorn is a real family theme park with a relaxed atmosphere, free entry to the best shows, rides grouped closely together and no long queues.

AVATARZ NATURE PARK

Climbing in safety in the ecological climbing forest Avatarz, through the tall trees with more than 100 different sporty challenges, balancing over cables, beams, rope bridges and nets, and finally floating back along the longest zipline in the Netherlands! The park also offers many more great packages for sports, play, and outdoor games.

NATURA DOCET WONDERRYCK

The wonders of nature are presented to you, letting you experience the unique and extraordinary aspects of the Twente landscape and animal habitats. Every hall has its own story at Wonderryck. For instance, you see Twente through the eyes of a kestrel and walk through the Wonder Rooms that are full of animals, from kingfisher to bird of paradise and from platypus to saltwater crocodile.

DONDERTMAN ANIMAL FARM

An animal farm where children can have a full day of fun. From chickens, pigs and goats to rabbits and guinea pigs. The petting parlour at Dondertman houses young rabbits and guinea pigs you can hold and pet. There is also a play field, kart course, bouncy castle and a play cellar for indoor play in bad weather.

NATUURMUSEUM HOLTERBERG

Everything exudes the history of the railways at this railway museum. The smells, colours, atmosphere, the clothing worn by employees, the souvenir shop, the station restaurant. Step into this vibrant history and enjoy a return trip through the breathtaking Twente landscape. Take a ride on a nostalgic and original steam locomotive with wagons. The train’s pace gives you the opportunity to enjoy the train, your surroundings and your company. There is plenty of time to have a look around Boekelo and Haaksbergen. A first-class day out at Museum Buurtspoorweg!

MUSEUM BUURTSPOORWEG

Alles ademt hier het verleden van de spoorwegen. De geur, de kleur, de uitstraling, de kleding van het personeel, het souvenirwinkeltje, de stationsrestauratie. Stap in deze levendige geschiedenis en geniet van een retourtje door het prachtige Twentse landschap. Je rijdt mee met een nostalgische en originele stoomlocomotief en wagons. Het tempo van de trein geeft je alle gelegenheid van de omgeving, het treinstel en jouw gezelschap te genieten. Zowel in Boekelo als in Haaksbergen heb je tijd genoeg alles te bekijken en te ervaren. Een eersteklas dagje uit bij Museum Buurtspoorweg!
