The Efteling exists already for more than 60 years and is the perfect attraction if you are with the family with kids. Although the entrance fee is not cheap you can easily spend a whole day there without getting bored! The only disadvantage is that on beautiful days it can be crowded resulting in long queues for popular attractions. The... More

I think that Efteling theme park is the most unique theme park in Europe because it has a great combination of history and fairytale, like a twisted, sophisticated version of Disneyland. At first galnce, the park offers a rare picture of a medevil dungeon, the gateway to a fictional universe. There are lots of exciting rides suitable for all ages... More

Fun for young and old. This is one of the few authentic attraction parks and one of the cleanest. The combination of spectacular roller coasters and dark rides make this is an adventure for the whole family. This is a park with a history and that can still be witnessed. It grow over the years bursting of creativity and taking... More

It was a great day out. Old time fary tales, loads of attractions, there was fun for all ages. The queues were not very long. Some attractions were closed for safety reasons during thunderstorm. It was all very well organized. You can spend a day having fun without being pushed into buying sponsored souvenirs. Worth going!

Great park with the best themes in Europe. It's a wonderland for all ages. Your Euro is spend well while visiting the park. During the summer and school holidays the park can be very crowded with long waiting times. Strollers and small children can be bothersome but don't forget, it's a park for all ages. Looking forward to the opening... More

I loved it here .The super beautiful green forest intermingling with the attractions makes it so you don't know whats around every corner. What makes this place so good is that its for kids and adults alike . Be sure to stay for the princess and frog water show at the end-its spectacular! I actually think this place could be... More

The Efteling is maybe not the most spectacular theme park in the world but it is, as far as I know, the best combination between attractions and beautiful nature. All attractions for one, The Pyton, are not only a (thrill)ride but they also tell a 'story'. Not just a rollercoaster but a complete adventure build around it. Compared to Florida... More

De Efteling is a nice Theme Park, to spend a day at. The prices are high, but in line compared to other european parks. Make sure to book your ticket over the internet to take advantage of promotions and discounts. Its quite big and has some nicely themed areas. The design of the park in general is very appealing and... More

To the certain extent it's better than Disney. Very nice areas are spread over the beautiful park area, which is quite different from Disneylands we've been before. There are no toy shops after each and every attraction. Attractions -roller coasters are quite good, fast and furious, albeit short Very nice park overall!

I ve been in Efteling 3 times already and the best season to go is during summer (specially the long nights that Efteling is open) or weekdays where is less crowed. Rides: all the rides are amazing and we never had to wait more than 30min. Staff: the staff is helpful and friendly! Food: every time we had snacks from... More
