We ourselves live in Tilburg and for us it is an hour and twenty minutes away. For families living in the province of Limburg, it’s an even shorter drive.

Plopsa Indoor Hasselt with kids: general information
If you are planning to visit this indoor amusement park in Hasselt soon, it is best to look online for promotions regarding tickets. There are often very competitive offers through websites like Groupon, where you can get a great discount on a ticket to the park. Even with a season ticket from another amusement park, you still sometimes want to get a discount at this park.
If there are no promotions during the period you want to go, you can easily buy tickets through the theme park’ s website . By the way, children smaller than 85 cm may enter for free, and for kids between 85 and 100 cm you get a discount on a ticket. However, you should note that kids under 100 cm are not allowed in many attractions. For small kids taller than 100 cm, the park is ideal.
It is possible, for example, to put your backpack in a paid locker so you don’t have to walk around with it all day. The park has free WIFI and keep in mind that on quiet days not all attractions are open at the same time. There will be occasional changes of attractions that are open. There are also certain length restrictions for some attractions.
Plopsa Indoor Hasselt with kids: attractions
The park is really just a big playground for small kids and, of course, has a number of attractions in addition to those playgrounds. These attractions are all very family-friendly. For example, you have bumper cars but they go a lot quieter than you see them at the fair. For example, you have three different playgrounds (Bumba playground, Play Tree and Maya playground), where kids can have a great time. There is also a large mountain (outside) for kids to climb up and several large slides.
Also inside the park you have a carousel, water boats, spinning ducks, a K3 carousel, frogs, flying bikes, lighthouse (bench that goes up and down), a K3 disco, a raft, a small swing ship and a Wicky the Viking roller coaster. Outside you also have some attractions including a K3 traffic square, a water playground, a square with dancing fountains, flying bikes and a fire department carousel, where kids can put out a fire.
The park has its own theater inside that hosts shows featuring famous Plopsa characters, including Bumba’s show and Gnome Plop’s show (at least when we visited the park, these were the two shows).
Plopsa Indoor Hasselt with kids: food and drink!
There are several eateries in the park where you can have a great meal with your kids. For example, you have Frieda Kroket in Samson and Gert’s town square, where they sell mostly fries, burgers and snacks. At the Heidi corner, they mainly sell lots of sweets such as waffles, ice creams and cotton candy, but they also sell German bratwurst. The Plop House also sells about the same products they sell at the Heidi Corner.
If you want to eat something other than French fries and snacks, your best option is the Studio 100 Café. Here you have a somewhat wider range, where kids can eat macaroni, spaghetti or a pancake. For people who are vegetarian, you can also get a vegetarian wok with rice here. In this Studio 100 Café, there is also a dispensing point of the famous sandwich store Panos. Here you can get sandwiches and pastries.
Finally, you can visit Mrs. Praline, where they sell mostly candy, ice cream and cotton candy. The food they sell is pricey though, so of course bringing your own food and drinks in a bag is also an option. You can even have a picnic in the park. There is a picnic area next to the Play Tree (inside) and outside near the Water Playground.
