De Bonte Wever and Speelstad Oranje Photo TR

Postby hansrubens » Mon Mar 14, 2011 12:10 pm

Hi everyone,

Last december I went to Assen (which is a city in eastern Netherlands) with my family to visit an all inclusive Hotel called "De Bonte Wever". There are two more hotels of the same company which I liked a little bit better. The first one is Preston Palace and the second one is Kern Wasser Wunderland (maybe known by some of you) which also has a medium sized themepark.

Back to Assen.... Also included are tickets to Speelstad Oranje which is just a few miles away and since they got a new coaster in 2010 I also had an reason to visit this park again.

The Hotel also contained a Swimming pool, an official speed skating rink and a highly themed bar area!. Sorry to some people but I forgot to document the buffets but I can tell you they were amazing there was plenty of food and plenty of drinks (read beer!).

Speelstad Oranje is just an big kids play area with a few "big" rides. In 2010 they replaced the powered coaster for a "real" one... Yes a real credit. It's really a nice way to spent a day with the kids.

It's always nice to get some park action in the off season even if it's a small children park :-)
Nice trip report and thanks for sharing.
