Inspired by fairy tales and founded upon the work of artist Anton Pieck, The Netherlands' Efteling charms visitors with a variety of dark rides, thrill rides, and walk-through attractions in a delightful garden setting.
Efteling really is the Netherland's hidden gem, much less commercialised than other European theme parks and more along the lines of Hans Christian Andersen or Bros. Grimm than the more plastic fantastic, as it were! For their 65th Anniversary (2017) they have opened a brand new ride, the largest and most expensive in their history - Symbolica Palace of Fantasy - a great family ride, the first with no tracks or rails!
For the youngster's you can take a walk through the Fairy tale forest, ride the carousels, take a trip on the steam train or even get lost in a maze.
For the older children you have things like water rapid rides, a haunted house and the Symbolica - Palace of fantasy.
And for all you thrill seekers there are enough coasters to keep you happy with some truly amazing ones to try!
Efteling has something for everyone.
