Once a quaint nature park, Efteling has grown to become a large, fantasy theme park. When it opened in 1952 with a playground and fairytale forest, no one could have predicted that it would evolve to be twice the size of the original Disneyland. While the park remains true to its origins by incorporating elements of fairy tales and folklore into its attractions and entertainment, it now has a total of 36 rides, including four water slides. Take your family on a trip through mythical worlds, enjoy the park's renowned greenery and gardens, and share in the excitement of roller coasters and thrill rides.

The best theme park in Western Europe. Great atmosphere, very well dressed attractions and friendly staff. Often very crowded, but that's the price you pay....
A very nice theme park for all ages. You do need to know the good spots for food. And there is a bigger focus on family rides and fairytales than thrilling rides.
