A massive water park featuring attractions for visitors young and old, Plopsaqua is conveniently
located in the popular summer getaway of De Panne—between the beach and the railway station. Don a suit and explore the waterslides, pools, and other features, many of which are suitable for toddlers or those who prefer not to swim.
Choose your own water adventure at Plopsaqua, regardless of age, with options including play areas, whirlpool hot tubs, a sauna, and a variety of slides. Highlights include the Storm Bath, outdoor pool, the Disco Slide, in which you can choose your own music and lights, and the Sky Drop, a free-fall style slide with a 20-meter drop. Grab a light lunch at the snack bar and browse the shop for a swimsuit, towel, or other needed items.

To arrive from either city by public transport, take the train to Ostende, switch to tram line 0, and get off in De Panne. Those coming from the UK via Calais Eurostar station will need to drive about 65 kilometers (40 miles) to reach Plopsaqua.
