Went on a Sunday in February, lovely sunny day. Easy to find, loads of parking, really clean, helpful staff always willing to speak in English as per the whole of Holland, which helps. Great variety of rides and looks like they are still investing as a new ride arrives in the summer. Our family has been to a lot of... More

As a Family pf Disneyland fans, the wife and I didn't have lofty expectations for our weekend at Efteling Theme Park which we saw as a Disneyland wannabe. I have to say that we were pleasantly surprised. Many park rides were very much on par with Disney attractions, and although the park lacked the ambiance and characters that Disney brings,... More

Two adults, two full days. Loved the rollercoasters and other thrill rides just as much as, for example, the boating lake and the carousel. My favourite: Vogel Rok - a rollercoaster in the dark. Queues were minimal if non-existent for many rides, but this was clearly because of cold and damp weather. The staff were friendly and helpful, the park... More

First of all, just bring +/-€32 with you to have fun all day long not including foods & drinks. It's open around 9/10 am. It's always busy in the weekend. So, i advise you to come at any weekday. The attractions were so amazing and fun. The things i loved at the day are "python" and "The flying dutch man".... More

We're expat Americans with two small kids who had a great time despite the February cold. There are attractions for all ages. My only complaint is the lack of non-Dutch signage though the park staff speak multiple languages. Still, Efteling says it's trying to cater to an international market, but even simple directions (e.g. Exit) are only listed in Dutch.... More

This is a great theme park just over an hour's drive from Amsterdam! We visited it in November 2014 and were impressed with it more than with Disneyland Paris. It is very charming, with good rides and activities for children and parents too. The park is not as big, but we had enough to do for the whole day, and... More

Wonderful theme park! If you like fairytales this is the place to be. With such an acceptional eye for detail you're never done wondering through this park. For everyone adventure can be found on multiple levels! Really love it!!!

Been coming here when visiting husbands family for 10 years and it improves ever visit. The new rides are fantastic and there is now an absolutely brilliant live show on, which I won't spoil. Tip. Go for lunch in the adjoining restaraunt rather than sitting in the stalls. Dinner and a show! This l lace is great for all the... More

Everything here is based on fairytales and finished to a very high specification. The rides are fun but if it's white knuckle thrill action you want you may be disappointed. It does have some white knuckle rides but they aren't on the same scale as rides like the swarm or stealth at thorpe park. Although, opening this summer is a... More
