That is an awesome structure, imagine if they did that on Griffon at Busch Gardens, that would be a massive structure.

The theming of this ride is Disney level work. It looks like they really paid attention to every detail in making this ride. The actual coaster looks pretty basic but the theming makes up for it big time.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

When you see something with this kind of theming, it makes you realize how truly C-class most of the parks in the US are (Cedar Fair, Six Flags, ect).

Dive coasters are so badass. I don't understand people that don't like them.

I do not know, sorry. I think I read somewhere they are supposed to be free of charge but we did not use them so I do not know how they operate. The station itself also has bins for bags and glasses/mobile phones.

Love the amount of detail and the back story that has gone into this. Makes for a better experience then just a coaster!

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Beautiful ride. Efteling is an amazing park. I wish more American parks followed this type of ride development.

You need 1 Euro to close the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo, when you open the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo again you will get your Euro back.

For Dutchies the nearest dive coaster is in Northern Germany or the other side of the Channel, meaning that basicly for the regular visitor the ride on itself is already a huge deal. The theming just adds up and shows that a park, not owned by any chian, can surely make it. This ride just makes Efteling more interesting for families with teenagers, dads who like a thrill and also just teenagers on their own. Baron is, in my opinion, a thrill ride that still holds on to that Efteling and Dutch feeling.

Cannot wait to ride it!
