The amusement park is a family business owned and managed by the brothers Roderick and Philip van Zuylen van Nijevelt. Their father Hugo Count van Zuylen van Nijevelt (1929-2018) was appointed as chairman of the Supervisory Board after 2000 until 2017 to the company.
Approximately in the 16th or 17th century, a Landgoed originated, under the name Landgoed Duinrell. At the castle, there were a number of buildings, including Castle Duinrell, the Oudt Duinrell farm and a few other buildings. The name Duinrell comes from the name for the drainage of groundwater from the dunes. This water is also called rell. For the fact that the estate is about 3 kilometres from the Wassenaar beach and there was also the Duin on the estate, the name Duinrell was chosen. Around 1646 this name was officially chosen for the estate and the went on to be owned by many noble families.
On 19 April 1935, Landgoed Duinrell opened its doors. With this, Duinrell was opened. The entrance to the park was then 15 cents but due to the crisis of the 1930s, the Estate was opened up to earn more money. The nature park was then not as extensive as it is now. At that time it still consisted of forests and dunes. Later, motor races were held in Duinrell from 1938 onwards. In 1937 the first watchtower came into Duinrell. In 1938 the first artificial ski slope in the Netherlands was installed at Duinrell. After WWII, Duinrell was exploited on a modest scale and in addition to recreation, the Van Zuylens also created accommodation options.
1984 saw the construction of the subtropical swimming paradise Tikibad at the existing open-air pool. In the same year, the Rodelbaan (toboggan) was opened at the edge of the park. A year later, the Kikkerachtbaan was also opened. The “castle” was demolished in 1986 and in 1989, Duinrell opened the Aqua Swing attraction, a whirligig.
In 1990 the water slide Aqua Shute was opened. Two years later the Splash was opened, an attraction where a high-altitude boat glides into the water. In 1996, the attraction Waterspin was opened.
