    The attraction opened in 1998 and is now 15 years old. The theme comes from the story of Sinbad The Sailor. This theme is well reflected in the queue and the ride itself. The 650 meter long and 65 km / h fast roller coaster is completely covered and in absolute darkness when it opened. A few years later there are lighting effects added.

    Flying Dutchman

    by jo104 Updated Oct 8, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    On 1 April 2007 this new long awaited attraction opened at De Efteling & I suspect I am the first vt'er to take the voyage.

    Captain Willem van der Decken sailed out of the harbour against the rules and never returned. His ship was cursed to sail the seven seas forever, will you be so lucky to escape the curse of his Ghost ship (Sounds like Pirates of the Caribbean).

    You travel in a boat through the dark reaching a height of 22.5m then travel at 70km p/h another 420m making a huge splash into the water. The actual ride is fairly short & my dutch friends were a bit disappointed at this because the attraction has been hyped to the max and its the most expensive attraction at the park.

    Children must be 1.2m tall at least & they do enforce this strictly.

    **Update** Sept 2007 The Flying Dutchman attraction has temporarily closed due to malfunctions it should re-open in the New Year this may mean I am one of the only vt'ers to have taken this ride!!

    Hansel & Gretel

    In between the tall trees you'll discover the characters from your favourite fairy tales and perhaps discover a few new ones.

    Be careful the witch doesn't see you at her sweet house where Hansel & Gretel visited.
    Dodge past the short tempered fire breathing dragon.
    Rupunzel lets down her long hair (what no ladder) & see who climbs up it.
    Long Neck can see everything over the tree tops & he'll tell you a story in Dutch.

    Lots of other fairytale characters await the Indian Water lilies will enchant you and the little match girl tells you her said tale.

    This ride was really fun but you do get very wet if you are not careful, mind you even if you are someone is bound to get wet trousers (any which way). There are 6 persons to a raft and you travel towards waterfalls & through rapids. Watch out for non waterproof cameras!!

    Travel through the 1001 Arabian nights in a boat taking in sights like the Hareem, the Belly dancer, look out for those crocodiles and beggers lurking in the dark.

    It is fairly dark inside with Arabic music playing & can be a bit frightening for the children. The Boats hold about 20.

    This is a 3D Imax experience in close collaboration with the World Wide Fund for Nature.
    There is a wildlife documentary for viewing before you enter the IMAX theatre.
    The 3D effects make it very real and I jumped when the snake came straight at me. As well as the visual effects they include some additional effects to make you jump.
