Efteling sums up all the wonders and magic you've been told as a child from the bedtime stories and turns them to a reality beyond your wildest imagination. There are attractions to suit all ages, sizes and... character strenghts! The staff is really friendly everywhere and the park is amazingly well suited to the needs of people with mobility issues....

This parc is different from others because of the very nice Fairytail part of the parc. This parc is also very green, a large part of it is in the forest. There is a thing to enjoy for every one, from toddlers to elder people.

Familypark for all ages. Good roller coasters. Playgrounds. A Nice maze even for Little kids. Little train with pedals for the children. Four different boat rides for the whole Family. We all enjoyed ourselves.

The Efteling is a brilliant theme park, caters for all ages and one day really just isn't enough. For thrill seekers , there are some great rides. Most of them with a particular theme, all so beautifully designed and maintained. There is also a Fairytale forest and although some stories are more well known to Dutch speaking people, the 'famous'... More

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

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.
