Although the park was originally created for young children with a fairy tale theme, Efteling has transformed over the years into an amusement park filled with a variety of old world nostalgia and new world thrills. Efteling is divided into three sections – the park, the four-star Efteling Hotel, and an 18-hole golf course. The park itself is divided into four different sections – Travel Realm, Fairy Realm, Adventure Realm, and Alternative Realm. Efteling stays true to its fairy tale roots, with Sleeping Beauty's Castle, Fairy Tale Forest, and a haunted castle all on the park's grounds. For visitors looking for something a bit more thrilling than the Fairy Tale Forest, there's Python, a double loop corkscrew steel roller coaster located in Adventure Realm. In the winter Efteling becomes “Winter Efteling,” where the park transforms into a winter wonderland of holiday themed activities and events.

Absolutely the best familyparc in Holland

Holland has several amusementparks, but the Efteling is surely the best. What makes it different from parks like Walibi (formely Six Flags), Hellendoorn etc is the high quality of themes. The rides are great, but that is also on other parks. It is the way they make a story of many of the rides. Waiting in line is often not a drag because there is so much to see. For non-Dutch it can be somewhat difficult to understand when a story is told in a waitingroom in Dutch. The story which often is told with effects is a part of the ride wich follows.

For kids in the age of 3 to adults of 80, for all there is fun!

Sounds very cool... It's so much better when you get a back-story to a ride!
