Park Hilaria starts with a well-attended first weekend

Since the gates to Park Hilaria opened on Friday afternoon, almost 150,000 people have visited the temporary fun park on the Kennedylaan. Thanks to the large and varied range of attractions, theme terrace cafes and live performances on offer, combined with the typical Dutch summer weather, a great many people from the city and region found their way to the fun park.

Popular with all ages
As tradition dictates, on Friday afternoon at 14:00 hours the gates to Park Hilaria opened and the eighteenth edition of the Eindhoven fun park got underway. The intense thrill ride 'Devil Rock' is at Park Hilaria for the first time this year. And the Eclipse, Chaos and Katapult are back by popular request. The youngest visitors can learn all about dinosaurs this year in the 'World of Living Dinosaurs'. 
Once again this year, Park Hilaria has a varied range of more than one hundred fairground attractions for all ages. Park Hilaria is unique in its selection of various theme terrace cafes with free live performances and countless food and drink choices.

Another full week of fun
Park Hilaria will run until this coming Sunday 11 August and entrance is free.
Visit for all the information about the available attractions, opening hours, accessibility and the Hollario programme. Free Park Hilaria brochures including various discount vouchers are available from the Brandstore Eindhoven/VVV on the Stationsplein. Park Hilaria fans can also follow the event on social media.

Larie is going on holiday
The Park Hilaria mascot Larie is present at this edition too. He is ready for a hug every day between 15:00 hours and 18:00 hours at the Larie nest. Larie really wanted to go on holiday this summer, but all his holiday things have been lost around the park. Will you help him look for them? Don’t forget to take a hilarious selfie at the Larie board, you never know, perhaps you will win a Park Hilaria package for 2 people. Post your photo on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtags #parkhilaria and #larieopvakantie. The winner will be announced on the 9th of August on
