Efteling in The Netherlands, is an amazing amusement park. Like the other ones you´ll find roller coaster and everything else ( plus a bob sled which is not very comom in parks), but we were really surprised because it is a park that shows to kids all sort of fairy tales there are around the world !! It is a... More

I last visited Efteling in the late 80's and fell in love with the park. I wasn't disappointed when I returned twenty five years later with the kids, the same magic is still there. ALL the staff were extremely friendly and happy to help. Due to the size of the park the queues weren't excessive, even during a holiday period.... More

Everything about our stay was perfect - from the high quality accommodation in a nearby "Bosrijk" cottage to the reasonably priced food and fab swimming pool. As for the theme park, I'd never heard of it before it was recommended to me and I loved it. Set in mature woodland, themed around fairytales, we were all completely enchanted by it.... More

This park, with a decades long history, is by far the best in Holland and among the top parks in Europe and probably the world. With it's fairy tale forest (which started it all sometime after WW2) for even the smallest of kids to the best rollercoasters, this park got it all!

Liked the story tale woods and the Ravelijn live action show. The carousels were a nice warm up to the more adventurous rides. There are plenty of clean toilets and plentiful places to eat/drink. Souvenirs not too pricey, we enjoyed PandaZoom 3D show too.

Excellent theme park that keeps us coming back for more than 15 years! Beautifully landscaped and full of interesting ( and very Dutch ) attractions. Don't understand any of the fairy tales but that doesn't matter!

We visited Efteling on a Tuesday in August. We arrived early so were in the park to get onto the big rides. There was a good selection of rides for us (2 adults, 14 year old and 11 year old). The park was very busy though and the queue times averaged 40 minutes. We loved the toboggan rollercoaster and my... More

Efteling is a very unique place full of elves, fairies but also fast exciting rollercoasters. We went on a showery day in August. Get there at 9:30 you can get through the main gate and then wait at the area of the park you want to go to first. We went and got our tickets for the knights show for... More

Efteling did not meet my expectations (which in turn might have been a bit high). I was expecting something more along the lines of Disney and universal but obviously Efteling has a personality of it's own. I missed the fact that there were no characters and my main issue was the lack of "American atmosphere". Anyway, kids had some fun... More
