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 :lover:

Did my donkey title just change???

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 :)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Efteling adds single rider-row to Joris & de Draak

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.

^That's great. Anything to help people potentially get on quicker.

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

040518circuscoaster2.jpg


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! :airtime: :airtime:
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

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.
