Gilbert Bécaud once performed there and even Arnold Schwarzenegger came to the amusement park that was named after the late King Baudouin 60 years ago. Today the fountain is dry, a father would rather not see his child jumping into the unsanitary ball pool and there is a musty smell. “We were so disappointed that we asked for our money back. And the best part: we still got it,” a reader summarizes the decline. How did it ever get to this point? How profitable is Boudewijn Seapark still? And could things have turned out differently when a certain Gert Verhulst and his group showed interest at the end of the last century? We went to a park, where the handyman is busy working even on Sundays.
