Overall the ticket is worth it, comparing it the the facilities and water show etc. However, the guy working at the swing boat made us feel discriminated and offended. We’re trying to wait until the next boat and let other people go but however he said that we couldn’t choose our seat while others are doing that! and after that we wanted to sit at the top cuz it’s more exciting and however he didn’t let us to do and made us sit in the middle which we definitely didn’t like ( all the people chose their seats, and there are obviously vacancy). This is NOT FAIR and DISCRIMINATED I believe. On top of that, he even kicked out some children that had been playing it for several times, at the same time there were very few people lining up at that moment (no more than ‘one’ boat capacity). Apart from that, everything is all good.

We were 4 people and we liked to split our group into 2 at Joris en de dragon. So we could race against each other. Now only one row was faster than the other, so we didn't get together. But by asking an employee, he helped us get together. And we could still race against each other. He made our day even better. Thanks for that! Furthermore, the Baron is highly recommended and we ate delicious poffertjes at 't poffertje.
