Lots of fun for kids

Nice of adults too, but for kids below 10 it's one of the best amusement parks. Gets crowded in the afternoon, and the lines can be very long, so it's best to do the popular rides... read more

Good for all ages from toddlers to adults. To make the most of your day you must plan the visit in advance and use the Efteling App while in the Park. It is possible to enjoy the park even on a rainy day. Bring your umbrella and a raincoat. The Efteling App eats up the phone battery very quickly so... More

Forget Disney and Legoland. Take a trip to De Efteling. This has to be the premier park in Europe. There are attractions for all ages of children from 1 to 99. Well spaced with shady uncrowded walks, short waiting times and open till 8:00 pm. Well worth the entrance fee which is also reasonable. Tickets on line means no waiting... More

I was here 40yrs ago and loved it then as well as now. there is something for every age group, its so large that you ideally need a day here. lots of scary roller coaster rides but many other...

Queues small. Clean. Don't expect Disney parades. Lots of rides and things to see. Food a little pricey (as expected). Car parking costs 10 euros.

The Efteling park is a large area which will take 2 days to see and enjoy. It is very busy but go late evening as we did and no queuing for many rides ( still queuing for roller coaster rides ) Many leaving around 5-6pm. park very clean with nice gardens , ideally for the youngsters 4-9 year olds. Plenty... More

Together with my family we enjoyed the Efteling a lot. There are several rollercoasters for the thrill seekers and there are enough dark rides or other fun rides which are suitable for everyone. However, I guess without the feelings of nostalgia some rides should be updated (I mean Carnival Festival...can that really still be applied? I mean times change). Nevertheless,... More

Really nice park - well-organized, spacious, clean, with diverse attractions for young and old (ours range from 14 to 4, boys and girls). It was a bit crowded but very much expected at the end of August However, the Online Extras package is not worth the additional cost First, the 30-minute advance access to the park doesn't mean much when...

Being based in Britain and having travelled recently to LEGOLAND and having a truly miserable experience, it reminded me how impressive Efteling is. It is magical. Knowing Disney and a few others well, Efteling brings its own specialness. It is worth the trip if you have little ones...for what LEGOLAND can cost you, fly to Holland and enjoy this sweet... More

Dont get me wrong this amusemntparc is not all that bad, they have a few rides, like the Flying Dutchman and the Python, but this parc is not comparable with for example the movie park in germany.
