p. 74 - Nest, a new inclusive playground!

Recommended Posts

Even as simple as this coaster layout is, I'm really excited to see how this new track rides. Did Vekoma provide it?

 

The Belgian steel construction company CSM fabricated the new track sections. They also fabricated Pulsar at Walibi Belgium.

Efteling has announced Nest, a new inclusive / accessible playground opening next year. The playground will be themed to Efteling's roller coasters and attractions, for younger children and those with

A couple of days ago, the Efteling presented a live broadcast of the new Aquanura show. Personally this was exactly what I needed in this challenging year. Enjoy:   This is a tempo

@Nrthwnd, The trains are not going anywhere it's the boat ride with the whale that's going.   Last week there was some news about the expansion, the Dutch high court has revealed a partly ju

I'm not going to lie, it sound very optimistic in my opinion to say this terrain can be completed in 5 work days. But if there was concern we would have heard something by now. I just got to keep faith.

Rode it today. Sad to say the ride lost something, the old one had snap to it this one really misses that. That said it does run smoother and the single rider line is a welcome addition. And no, didn't get a nut I wanted to until I saw the line for it, it was crazy so I decided to just take a ride in the Python instead.

 

Today there was a malfunction causing the train to get stuck in the brakes. I had to be the one to ride it at that time. O well never had that happen before and its a welcome experience to have I say. To bad we didn't evacuate would like to experience that also.

 

Edit some pictures from today:

During the malfunction

^ Well kind of wierd how we both share an experience from two sides without ever meeting one other. Just shows how things can be. I promise you, you had the better spot for sure, afer a while not being able to move freely really got to me. Lucky it didn't last to long.

^^^ That was fun to watch. Would have loved to have understood what they were saying.

Probably even more outrageous information about how "Baby can ride Python".....

 

p.s. I found no subtitles on that video. Hence my inability to understand what was being said.

The Raveleijn show has a few changes. The fights were changed, and there is a new fight on the roof of the gate.

 

I filmed it from two locations: to the right on one of the first rows, and on the left on one of the back rows.

 

Left side:

 

 

 

Right side:

Really nice videos. Raveleijn is just about one of my favourite theme park shows in the world, and I even include Disney in that comparison. It's such a cool mix of stunts, special effects and is visually stunning

Update about the new coaster: According to looopings.nl the new launch coaster will be for the whole family, so no big thrill ride. The launch roller coaster does not go over the head. Moreover, the pace is relatively low. Perfect coaster for the whole family

Efteling adds single rider-row to Joris & de Draak

 

010518joris.jpg.02c12820e3d09163fc4538fcda7479f6.jpg

 

Joris & de Draak will be the fifth Efteling attraction with a single riders row. The wooden roller coaster will be closed for a refurbishment from Monday 7th to Friday 25th May. A single riders row will also be added during this period. This is confirmed by a spokeswoman from the Efteling.

 

Previously, Bob, Baron 1898, Symbolica and Python already had such a separate row. Since last summer, Joris & de Draak also has assigned seating on busy days.

This will be the theme of the new roller coaster in the Efteling

A Dutch theme park website, Looopings, revealed which theme the new roller coaster of the Efteling will have. The theme park is planning to open a spectacular new rollercoaster in 2020. That attraction is all about the circus theme.

 

It will be a cheerful family attraction with various varied elements, including a launch and a lift hill. The roller coaster will be located on a piece of land to the east of the current park. That new area - in the neighborhood of Vogel Rok and the Efteling Hotel - will soon be included in the existing Reizenrijk.

 

A large circus tent will be built in the Efteling. The roller coaster is largely located around it. More details about the theme are not yet known. The rollercoaster is built by the Swiss manufacturer Intamin. There will be no inversions.

 

The Efteling does not want to confirm the message yet. "We like that our plans for the future are so well talked about, but we can not say anything about it ourselves", a spokeswoman responds. The theme park does not yet have the necessary permits to build. "We have plans, but they have not yet been finally approved, and unfortunately there is little to say about this project until then."

^Creepy-cool. Knowing the quality of theming we can expect, this intrigues me a lot. The ride itself seems interesting, too. I'll add Efteling to my growing "I will no longer feel bad about not visiting this park this year or in 2019" list.

Hmmm. David and I are planning a 2022 visit to Amsterdam, Paris and Disney. And I was (maybe) going back to Walibi Holland,

or add Toverland to the same schedule. But now, after seeing this....

 

Hmmm. More to add for more fun, while we're in The Netherlands!

I'm glad they're planning on wedding a new coaster but I must admit a circus theme doesn't excite me much. I worry it might be a little bit tacky.

Efteling doesn't know the meaning of tacky - it's one of the most beautifully themed parks in the world. I doubt they would screw that up.

Don't get me wrong, I love the park, but Carnaval Festival is a bit tacky.
