It kind of looks like a giga lift.

Yes, go there! It is amazing any time of year. Unfortunately you will miss out on either winter or summer activities that time of year. It would be a full-on day with about 4 hours worth of commuting (door to door both ways) but hey, how often do you get the chance... The park closes at 6 PM that time of year, so you will be back in Amsterdam by 8PM.

A new fairytale has opened in the fairytale forest.

Based on a Grimm tale, `De Zes Zwanen' (The Six Swans, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Six_Swans) has been designed by Sander de Bruijn, who was also responsible for designing i.e. Raveleijn and Symbolica, has been officially opened this morning.

Below are some pictures, all owned by http://www.looopings.nl.

And also some videos by Efteling, showing the two routes:


The walkthrough-route.


The swans-route.

It's been a while after the last post here but a lot of work has been done by the park.
Pandadroom has been closed down reworked and reopened as Fabula. Also Max + Moritz had all the track-work done last Friday:

One during the day.
(Picture source: Efteling Facebook page.)
We also know the rides are 300 meter (984,3 Feet) long, 6 meter (19,7 feet) high and have a top-speed of 36 Km/h (22,4mph).
The park also has taken down a fairy tale house to rebuild it very soon.
To finish this off Joris en de Draak has a malfunction that last a couple of weeks now. This Saturday I was in the park and you really miss it as Bob is no longer there, Max + Moritz is not open yet and de Vliegende Hollander is in maintenance cutting their coaster selection in half leaving only Python, Baron and Vogel Rok.
So a bunch of things happened here after the opening of the last fairy tale, I thought it was worth sharing.

So I know that they'll depart in opposite directions, do we know if you get two circuits per ride or just one?

They get one track each and go 2 rounds.

Today the first train arrived, and the first animatronic showed himself.

It's very do-able and well wroth it if you're willing to get an early train from Amsterdam. I did it a couple of years ago without any problems. Train down and then a local bus to the park.

Re: The Six Swans

So it's a children's flat ride with a dark ride "section"? I love it!

Really enjoyed my first visit to Efteling this last year. It's like Disney without all the icky Disneyness.*

I dunno. Every time I see some of the animatronics in Efteling
(and a few other European parks), I think of this...

Efteling has just posted on it's site, a drone overview of the empty park.
But with all the spring landscape blooming and greening, it's gorgeous views!

Enjoy. =)
