     History
    The park opened in 1950 in the city of Dadizele, Belgium, a town already a tourist destination and a pilgrimage point. the park gained attraction not for modern rides, but the rather simple rides and equipment such as slides, monkey ropes and the longest suspension bridge in Europe that were the main attraction, both when the park was operating and during it's abandoned days.

    After safety concerns following a string of accidents reached a horrifying climax when a boy reportedly lost his arm while riding the once-popular “Nautic Jet" in 2000. In 2002 and Dadipark was forced to close with the intention if renovations and reopening, but this never materialized and the park became out playground.

     Future Plans
    The park and its rides lay silent and seemingly forgotten, completely overgrown as attempts to breathe new life into the ailing attraction stalled. In late 2012 the park was demolished completely and nothing of the Dadipark we knew and loved remains on the site.
