    Haunted Castle

    by jo104 Updated Apr 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was a bit apprehensive when Han suggested a visit into the Haunted Castle as all my memories of being scared out of my wits in the ghost train in South Africa came flooding back. But I put on a brave face & went through the dark passage to wait for the doors into the attraction to open and to be honest the dark corridor was the scariest part.

    It is basically a show of skulls, graves & ghosts doing a dance called the Dance Macarbe set to music a bit dissapointing and not scary at all.

    This is not a scary attraction at all but rather one that will give you a birds eye view of the park. The thai style temple looking Pagoda takes you up to 45m turning ever so slowly so you can view the whole park. You can only really see the big attractions as the rest are well hidden in the woods.

    Bobsleigh run

    by jo104 Updated Apr 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was my favourite ride it takes 6 at a time whizzing round corners at 60km p/h the ride lasts 2min 10sec and if you have waited a long time in the queue it may seem dissapointing but there are plenty of thrill corners to be had. The track is 524 metres in total & its a bit of a bumpy ride making it all the more fun.

    The attraction is in the open air so its closed in the winter. There is no height restriction so the whole family can enjoy

    On a fine day you may fancy taking one of these little gondala boats to give your feet a rest and perhaps enjoy a picnic while you float alongside the ducks and banks of tulips.

    This trip takes approximately 30min so enough time to get your breath back

    There is no such thing as a height restriction in De Efteling but if you are less then 1.5m you'll enjoy the experience even more as you can't see over the top of the hedges. Find your way through the maze dodging the shooting sprays of water as you cross the bridge - I got a bit wet much to the childrens delight. There is a statue that talks to you as well as many other exciting adventures to be had.

    The question is do I go left or do I go right??

    Bird Rok

    by jo104 Written Apr 25, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This giant bird rollercoster is linkled to the story of Sinbad the Sailor when he was hiding in a giant birds nest and mistook an egg for a rock.

    The bird rok rollercoaster ride is extremely fast with sudden stops, again thrilling music plays in the cart. Your flight is in complete darkness and you'll encounter laser flashes of light see the bird before your eyes. I must admit to feeling a little green and pale afterwards but it certainly gets the heart beating fatser.

    Children must be 1.2m high and fearless, It is a covered attraction, not suitable for people suffering from epilepsy with the flashing lights.

    Villa Volta

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Enter into a cursed mans' house if you dare and listen to the story this mysterious house has to tell you. Then enter into another room where Hugo van den Loonsche Duynen will tell you the story of how he was cursed after looting a church and stealing holy artifacts. He felt a hand on his shoulder & was cursed with the words "Where up is down and down is up he shall never find peace again"

    This attarction creates the illusion of being upside down so if you suffer from motion sickness this may not be one for you. There is no height restriction and we took Han's niece in & she loved the experience, children are more fearless, it was us adults that were screaming. This is a covered attraction with no disabled access. The story beforehand is all told in dutch & takes about 10 minutes in total before you enter your final destination. Great music plays on this attraction & sets the mood

    Take a journey high up into the stars, as you glide past a fairy kingdom be sure to wave at the fairies and elves. Your carriage will take you through a wood with a golden waterfall and a the troll marshes. All the while beautiful background music surrounds you with a tingly feeling. Dream flights is a chance for the whole family to dream with their eyes open.

    This is a enclosed attraction and can seat 2 adults & 2 small children in a carriage.
    The waiting queues can be fairly long when busy but we were lucky to jump straight on.
    There is no disabled access

    Be prepared for your child wanting to go several times Han's nephew loved it

    Cute ;-)

    It's a small world after all.... La la la!!!
    Yes it's almost the same as this famous attraction
    In just a few minutes. The puppets display their national costumes and show you something of the customs and traditions of their countries. After your journey round the world, the music will go on echoing through your head, if you like it or not!

    Kodak moment ;-)

    Piranha

    You boat glides gently at least that's what you think, but suddenly you are taken into rapids. Look at those that are with you and some of them will get soaked througout the trip. After you get waterfalls and what else you have to get soaking wet. Great on a hot day! But very different on a cold and rainy day ...

    Miniature Holland at Efteling

    We visited Efteling Park in September and although the weather was sunny and raining at times, we still had the time of our lives. The 3 rollercoasters were fun. The one I liked most was the Vogel Rok which was a indoor rollercoaster where you couldn't see anything!! THere are lots of places where you could grab a bite. But beware of the rain! Get a rain poncho with you so it won't spoil your fun-filled day!

    Dream Flight

    This is always number one for children under 10 in the Efteling. The world of dreams and fairies and high up in the clouds your dreams will seem to come true. : ) Enjoy castles, stars twinkling in the night. Wave to the elves in their garden and hope that your dreams will stay... forever

    This attraction is always very crowded, is the 2:10 minutes of fun worth it?

    If you've never been in one, i would say yes. But do realise that during the summer don't be supriced if you have wait over 90 minutes!

    The bird rock

    After many long journeys, Sinbad the Sailor reaches a deserted island: Flight through the darknessĀ¦ An ominous wind starts blowing. It is not a cloud! It is a gigantic bird.It is Bird Rock! Sinbad shivers, hidden in the bird's nest. He unwraps his turban, ties it round himself carefully and ties the other end to the bird's foot. The powerful Rock bird spreads its wings. With a shaking Sinbad clamped to its foot, it flies off above the rainbow, far over the horizon, in a hair-raising flight. Bird Rock has landed in Efteling.
