Came here with our two young daughters on Easter Sunday and had a fantastic day. Started the day with a walk through the Fairy tale wood and after lunch did many of the various rides suited to our daughters which I also had fun on (most of them). The prices in the shops and restaurants were very reasonable and you... More

Efteling is a must visit if you are into fun and a... More

We travelled with 3 kids, 14,11 &6. The park was clean and picturesque. The attractions were good but the 2 older kids were getting bored by lunchtime. A great place for young kids up to age 8, but if you're looking for thrills I would recommend Walibi for older kids. 10euro to park here too.

We traveled with two kids, 3 years and 6 months baby. Pros: 1- Well organized. Attractions are equally good for adults, children and even infants. We could take a lot of rides with our 6 month old, such as the boat ride, train ride, cars etc. 2- Halal resturant 3- Neat rest rooms with nice baby changers 4- English map... More

Our 3 days at this Park were made all the more special by the beautiful spring weather, it can be gamble at this time of year but it couldn't have been warmer or more lovely. Our Park entry was free because we were staying in the hotel so I ma not sure how much it costs for a days entrance.... More

A trip to De Efteling is always something we as a family look forward to. We do however check whether they expect it to be busy though (can be found on their website). When it is really busy it somewhat takes the fun out of the day. Numerous rides for young and old and they'll never get boring. New rides... More

As an English theme park junkie, I had to come here. However, I soon learnt that the demographic for this theme park is Dutch children. The place was beautiful and I captured some good photos. 2 of the main attractions were closed and the food in the park isn't that great. I noticed the theme of most of the attractions... More

We visited the park with our 4 year old daughter, expecting the park will be too much - too scary, too dark, etc. Nothing was further from the truth. The fairy tales forest, which is somewhat sinister compared to the Disney version, was riveting even though it was told only in Dutch. We ended up learning about new fairy tales... More

The park is good for small children. Has been around for ages and is slowly renewing itself. A fairytale adventure park that is exploring to become an amusement park. At the moment to many people at to few rides. A new one is opening this summer which looks good. Around 80 minutes wait at high season for the existing rides.... More
