History

In the spring of 2006 Star Parks sold Bellewaerde Park to Grévin & Cie being part of the group Compagnie des Alpes.
In 2000, the Premier Parks name was dropped in favor of the more popular Six Flags brand name.
Six Flags operated the park until early 2004 when Six Flags sold their European parks (excluding their small portion of Warner Bros. Movie World in Madrid, Spain) to Palamon Capitol Partners who now operate the parks under the Star Parks Europe name.
In 1998 Premier Parks purchased the park. At the time Premier Parks also owned Six Flags Corporation.
The park joined the Walibi Group.
The first large amusement rides were added.
Tigers were added and more exotic animals were to follow over the following years.
A lion area was added and the park was renamed to "Bellewaerde Park". The lions are to this day the park's mascots.
A safari park was added and the park was renamed "Safari Bellewaerde"
Originally opened as a garden and ornithological (study of birds) park named "Toeristisch Centrum Bellewaerde", Dutch for "Tourist Center Bellewaerde".
