  • Efteling builds Joris (George) and the Dragon legend for 2010!

    Suddenly the Pegasus - small Woody - was closed last season. Immediately there were rumours that the ride would be considered for permanent closure, and it would make place for a new ride. The Pegasus did not meet the Efteling quality standards anymore. Soon it was confirmed; The Pegasus would make place for a dueling woody! This is planned for july 2010.

    First picture of the dragon animatronic (http://twitter.com/msnguy90/status/14418612857). It looks HUGE. Left on the truck seems to be a claw. On the right a flange (kraag?!).

    Update: Vijfzintuigen has more pictures of the dragon. It looks jawdropping!

    Wow! Because of its size I would assume it has minimal movement, but I really hope I'm wrong.
