Efteling theme park, in Kaatsheuvel, Holland began as nature park with an Enchanted Forest area aimed at young children, then it just grew, as visitors of all ages came to love its unique fantasy atmosphere. Myths, legends, folklore and fairy tales unfold with spellbinding detail - these days using animatronics, and Efteling has a giant storytelling tree and 11 talking garbage gobblers!
Thrill seekers can plunge down a mineshaft at 90km/hr on the Baron 1898, hurtle along the wooden racer coaster George and the Dragon, or whizz down a bobsleigh run, and there are water rides ranging from fast soakers to slow drifters. The most visited attraction is the charming Dreamflight, a gentle dark ride into the world of fairies and elves. Don’t miss the spectacular views of the park from 45m on the Pagode ride, and after sunset, Europe’s biggest water show, Aquanura.
