Wow here's hoping for a Pandora's box after watching that youtube clip but I have a feeling it will be Harry Potter esque.

The Efteling is building its 'Realm of Fantasy'; better known as Hartenhof or Hearts Garden. A model of this $57 million project appeared in the lobby of Ravelin a day after its soft opening for employees.

New at Efteling in 2012: Aquanura

KAATSHEUVEL - De Efteling komt in het jubileumjaar 2012 met een nieuwe attractie: de watershow Aquanura.

Volgens het attractiepark is het de grootste fonteinenshow van Europa en na Las Vegas en Dubai de derde grootste van de wereld. De Efteling viert volgend jaar het 60-jarig bestaan. Op 31 mei 2012 opent een nieuwe jubileumattractie. Op de Vonderplas, vlakbij de hoofdentree, komt een grote fonteinenshow. Leverancier is de firma WET uit Los Angeles, die ook achter de shows in Las Vegas en Dubai zit. Enkele maanden eerder opent de Efteling ook een nieuw sprookje in het Sprookjesbos: De Nieuwe Kleren van de Keizer. Het bedrijf wil nu nog niet veel kwijt over de plannen, ook niet over de hoogte van de investeringen. Later dit jaar wil het de plannen voor de nieuwe attracties verder presenteren.© Brabants Dagblad 2011, op dit artikel rust copyright.


Quick translation: 2012 will be the the year Efteling turns 60 years old, and the park will celebrate that with Aquanura, a watershow built by WET, the same company that built the huge fountains in Dubai and Las Vegas, and it'll be the largest of Europe, and the third largest watershow in the world, leaving only the fountains in Dubai and Las Vegas in front of it. Efteling didn't want to tell how much they are going to invest in the new watershow, they will release more information later this year.

Anyhow, I'm curious how this will work out, if it's going to be anything like WoC at Disney, it'll be a great addition tothe park!
It will be placed in the lake in front of Fata Morgana

Actually, Hartenhof would be the new ride to celebrate their anniversary, but that'll be delayed one year. I understood that because of that, Efteling decided to place this new watershow.
Disney's WoC cost $75.000.000, so I wonder how much this one will cost. But one thing is sure, Efteling sure is spending a LOT of money the last few years.

Yeah they spended a lot; lets see;

De Vliegende Hollander (2007): €20.000.000
Joris en de Draak (2010): €12.500.000
Raveleijn (2011): €30.000.000
Hartenhof: (2013): €42.500.000
Aquanura: (2012): €?

So in 5 years they spend: €105.000.000 aka $149.887.584,31 (Excluding the newly build fairytales, like Sprookjesboom, Meisje met de Zwavelstokjes and De Kleding van de Keizer; wich adds a few more million to it.)

Not bad for a themepark without a big backbone company.

It's not entirely like that, we should add a bit:

De Vliegende Hollander (2007): €20.000.000
Joris en de Draak (2010): €12.500.000
Bosrijk (2010): €60.000.000
Raveleijn (2011): €30.000.000
Hartenhof: (2013): €42.500.000
Aquanura: (2012): €?
Miscellaneous (2007-2012): €15.000.000

So in 5 years they spend: €180.000.000.

Droomrijk = Bosrijk? :P

Also dont forget the rumour of the Python getting new trains. (again.) The Python has also reached her/his 30th birthday a few days ago.

Efteling has released two concept arts of the Aquanura water show, scheduled for opening next year. Total investment in the 10-minute show will be € 17.000.000 in which, next to water, music, light and fire will have a prominent position. In the future, also other watershows will find their place on the lake. This all according to the press release :)

The Efteling has something new for this years Winter Efteling: 3D Mapping!

Using this technology the park has made "mini-shows" (as I like to call them) for this years winter efteling. When the sun sets, these lights (or lasers.. don't know how its been done) will make the builings look like there alive!

3D mapping is used on De Vliegende Holland, Villa Volta and Spookslot.

They posted some video's on youtube. I personally think Villa Volta is the best one!

Spookslot (interactive ghosts):


De Vliegende Hollander (short story about the ship in a storm, shortly translated: No one will stand between me and sailing my ship. We'll saill til the end of time)


Villa Volta (madhouse, story about how the house is cursed and that only a clean spirit can break the curse) I think this one is awesome! best part starts after 2:06 minutes:

I never caught the announcement of the new water show - looks fantastic! It's crazy to see a smaller park invest so much so quick, but good for them!
