What a thoroughly weird choice, name, lack of themeing, and drawing.

^It sounds like there will be more details to be announced about the ride as they get closer to construction... In researching the theme that inspired the coasters, I'm a little surprised to find they're basing it on something so morbid.

^ Well the actual fairy tales that they depict in the forest all have dark ending. This is just another example of it. Fairy tales where created to teach children not to lie or disobey orders and behave decent or els something bad happens. We're now on a point most of these stories are twisted to something beautiful with happy ever after. Learning how this one goes made me think it's a tame story.

Learning more and more about this project gets me more exited for it. Also was glad to hear these aren't the final lay-out. These aren't really to exiting although I doubt much more will come ot off the final design I'm kind of hoping for around 300 meter for each coaster. Also some people figured out that the trains seem to go into the oposite directions based on the concept art, That would be great to see and really make it diffrent from Joris en de Draak. If it are powered coasters you don't have much of a race anyways so going into the same direction doesn't make it too exiting to look.

Given that the original 2020 expansion was pushed back a year in favor of this it could be that it decided on fairly recently and so they haven't worked out the details yet.

They have added some new effects and sounds to the Vogel Rok indoor coaster. A starry sky (laser dots), smoke, a star tunnel and some bird and snake noises.

We're not going to be back in Europe until April 2022. But until then, I am definitely
going to keep Efteling (as well as Walibi Holland) on my List Of Parks to go and visit,
when we're first in Amsterdam. And then later on, Paris (Jardin d'Acclimatation) and Disney.
There's a carousel in there! And (there used to be) a Water Show, and Miniatures! TPR 2008 Europe Tour.

Since it's a weekday on the 16th and in the low season you should be fine with one day. The only issue there might be is the weather. If it's too cold the outdoor rollercoasters may close. In February 2018 there was a freak cold chill that took it to -1 degrees Celsius, which closed all outdoor coaster except Baron 1898. I went to the park last on a weekday in February and got on 23 rides in only 7 hours (including 5 on Baron and 4 on Symbolica). I still had a great time and sure you will too.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

I'm glad to see Vogel Rok got some lovin'. Yeah, it's a short ride but I really enjoy it. Simple layout but they really nailed the illusion of high speed.
