  • De Efteling - Everything you can't find outside of Disney, except here!

    Hey there,

    For ages, I've been a roller coaster and theme park fan but haven't visited De Efteling. It's a cultural blunder of mine, because De Efteling is pretty much considered part of dutch culture. One of the lead designers even got royal recognition for his contributions.

    However, I now find myself lucky enough to be the owner of a season pass. And I personally think it is about time that this park gets some recognition over here, because in my not-so-humble opinion, this is the best theme park outside of the Disney ones, and it offers an experience no park can duplicate.

    Some parts look nice, but then photos of things like the queue make you realize why Disney is the best. However there are some nice looking things to make up for the lack of spectacular looking coasters.

      Yes you're right, in general, the queues are left exactly that. There are some exceptions, but I think this is wise, considering their budgets don't allow for Disney-style spending

        Efteling is very very good . i've been there twice once in 2002 and then last October and the park was crowded .

        The Longuest Line was for the most beautiful Dark Ride in the park Droomvlucht translated as The Flight of Dreams and i waited close to an hour .

          Until two weeks ago, I never saw a light-crowded day at the park. But last two saturdays, pretty much all rides were walk-on, and peak wait times were 5 minutes. Great!

            I found this little quote on wikipedia about the park.

            The Efteling has a good relation with the Disney themeparks. Disneyland Paris consulted the Efteling during its' construction and design phase, to have the American park adapted to European culture. As a token of appreciation the Disney Company gave the Efteling a small statue. Also, Ton van de Ven (former Creative Director) is a good friend of Disney's Tony Baxter (Senior Vice President of Disney Imagineering)

              There are definitely good relations. Ton van de Ven rocks though, too bad he retired. They did do a tribute ot him inside Villa Volta in the form of a painting of him, together with all the other pieces of art that Hugo supposedly stole. Really nice.

              I'd love to see that statue once
