The theme park, Bruparck , incorporates a water fun park, Océade , the giant Kinepolis cinema with a multiplex and an IMAX, and the highlight, Mini-Europe . In the latter, over 350 miniature scale models (all 1:25) depict some of Europe’s best-known architectural highlights, such as the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela (which took 24,000 man-hours to create), London’s Big Ben, Lisbon’s Torre de Belem and Paris’ Pompidou Centre; with various moving features like little railways, and even a cross-section of the Chunnel. It’s a fun way for kids (and kids-at-heart) to brush up on European geography, and the models are true works of art. On some weekend nights in summer Mini-Europe opens to midnight and has musical fireworks displays; call for dates.
