  4. The regulations have been drawn up to guarantee order and safety within ZooParc Overloon.

  5. In the event that, irrespective of the reason, there is a difference between the provisions in this version of the Park regulations and the English translation of  the Park regulations, the provisions in the Dutch version of  the Park regulations will prevail.
