Article 2: Ticket and season ticket prices - No refunds
- The management reserves the right to modify its rates at any time, without prejudice to the visitors with regard to the validity of the tickets/season tickets/speedy passes purchased before such modification. The price of tickets and season tickets is set according to the circumstances of the operation of an amusement park and weather conditions, all of which inevitably lead to all or part of the attractions and other services offered being temporarily inaccessible.
- Whenever possible, the management ensures that visitors are informed of any disruption to the Park’s activities which it controls by regularly updating the agenda of the Bellewaerde Belgium website.
- This desire to provide information for the sole purpose of limiting as much as possible any inconveniences that Park users may suffer may in no way be interpreted as the management’s acceptance to grant any price reduction on tickets/season tickets sold as a result of disturbances that were not mentioned on the Park's agenda.
- Regardless of the manner in which they were acquired, tickets, season tickets and season passes giving access to the Park and the parking lot shall not be exchanged or refunded, whether in full or in part (Article VI. 53 12° of the Code of Economic Law) .
- In this respect, it is irrelevant that: the ticket/season ticket/season pass has hardly been used or cannot be used by its acquirer; and/or all or part of the attractions of the Park are or have been inaccessible during the period of validity of the entrance entitlement, for meteorological reasons or for reasons related to the operation of the Park (breakdowns of attractions, security problem, maintenance or renovation of attractions, restoration works, installation of new attractions, etc.), all of which circumstances cannot in any case be assimilated to cases of force majeure.
- Even in cases of force majeure in the legal sense of the term, Bellewaerde’s obligation will be limited to proposing to the visitor a new date for using their entrance entitlement impacted by the case of force majeure.
- Tickets/season tickets/season passes are strictly personal and cannot in any case be loaned or transferred. They are only valid if they can be produced together with the unexpired identity card of their holders.
- It is strictly forbidden to reproduce, duplicate or forge a Bellewaerde ticket or season ticket in any way whatsoever. The fact of lending an entrance entitlement to a third party, as well as using and attempting to use an irregular entrance entitlement, besides being liable to criminal prosecution, will immediately result in the ticket/season ticket/season pass being confiscated, without possibility of reimbursement and without prejudice to the compensation of all the damage suffered.
- Bellewaerde declines any responsibility in case of illicit use of an entrance entitlement following the loss or theft thereof, if such loss or theft has not been previously reported to it.
Article 4 - Intellectual property rights
The intellectual property rights of the website and its components belong to Compagnie des Alpes or to third parties.
