Disneyland USA was founded in 1952. Amusement park De Waarbeek in Hengelo started in 1924!
It's a family amusement park, and does not have the big spectacular attractions that most other parks cannot do without. However De Waarbeek has 44 attractions in a compact amusement park for children of all ages. The park is green, gezellig (cozy) and has some oldfashioned excitement. And you don't have to have a fat wallet, because the price is very affordable.

De Waarbeek is special because of the nostalgic attractions like the Rodelbaan. It's a Roller Coaster made of steel and the oldest in the world! It has been built in 1930 by De Waarbeek, long before Disney got one. The Rodelbaan is in working and safe condition and still in use every day.
