Waterpret is Water Fun

Have fun splashing around after you’ve seen all the animal presentations! In Waterpret, the water park of the Dolfinarium, you slide down 7 different, fast water slides. Waterpret is a wonderful place to cool off during a hot day, to whiz down the highest water slide with your children and to relax on the sunbeds in the sunbathing area and the beach or with a drink on the terrace of restaurant Zandhapper.

Waterpret is a water attraction that you should not miss:

  • Fun for young and old
  • A wonderful activity after seeing all the animal shows
  • A pleasant refreshment on a hot day

The exact opening times may vary from day to day and are always subject to change.

It is not for nothing that it is said that Waterpret is also called ‘the swimming pool’ or ‘water park’ of the Dolfinarium. Ok, you can’t really swim in it, but water fun and cooling are guaranteed. And if you really want to swim, walk to the beach and take a wonderful dip in the Veluwemeer. Because you can also swim at the Dolfinarium in Harderwijk. So it’s also great if you live near the Dolfinarium, because Water Fun is for everyone in Harderwijk!

* Water fun is suitable for children from the age of three.

Enjoying animals and water for a whole, splashing day!

Make it a fun long day with the whole family, because there is something for everyone! From now on, animal lovers and water rats can go to the Dolfinarium. Nowadays you don’t just come to the Dolfinarium for a day at the zoo, but also to cool off during a summer day out.

You can alternate your visit to Waterpret with a visit to the impressive dolphin presentation Oceanica, the eight educational animal performances, the playgrounds and the beach.

Will you slide down all the water slides with us?

Go down the double slide together, or whiz down the winding track. The real daredevils can’t believe their luck, because Water Fun is now even faster and more exciting! Go down the highest and fastest water slide ‘De Wal-rush’, slide down together on a tire in ‘De Dolle Donut’, or slide through a world full of lights in ‘De Zeevonk’. So splashing fun is guaranteed.

We bet that once you see Water Fun, you immediately want to slide along? Or want to cool down? So take your swimming gear to the Dolfinarium. Forgot your bathing suit? No worries! Just buy a new one in the De Grote Franjepoot souvenir shop. Swimwear is mandatory if you want to enjoy Water Fun. At Waterpret you will also find toilets and changing rooms.
