Ah, the Efteling... Such a beautiful park! I'm really in love with it and everytime I visit it, I'm stunned by it's beauty.
Even though the weather wasn't great (rain in the morning) we still had a day packed with fun! The lines were OK so we rode all the coasters (some of them twice), did some flat rides, had some good snacks, blah blah blah!
I'm not good at words so I'll let the pics speak for themselves. Enjoy!
On our way to the Efteling!
Nelle is having a carrot, I will have a Efteling-DVD. Much better!
(yes, I have new braces... woo hoo)
A coach full of blurry but happy people!
Yay! We arrived unscathed!
We immediately went to Dream Flight since the lines can be very long.
Liesbeth and Annemie are very excited to meet elves, trolls and other riff-raff!
A tiny troll in the bushes and some elves sitting in a tree...
(this is the only pic of Dream Flight that came out good)
Next stop: Villa Volta! (a.k.a. Vekoma-in-a-box)
Here's Hugo, the owner of the place, warning us that his house is cursed!
Down is up and up is down!
Liesbeth checks the map to see where we go next. Hm, I hope she knows what she's doing...
Time to ride the Flying Dutchman!
This is the über-themed entrance building.
This is the queue area.
The pic is a bit dark but I think it perfectly shows the atmosphere. It really feels like you're waiting in a harbour from the Golden Age!
My very first attempt making onride pics and only one came out good...
Liesbeth and I having fun on the Flying Dutchman!
This is the lovely view you get when you're going back to the harbour.
Another boat trying to escape the curse of the Ghost Ship!
That's the reward you get when you escaped...
A Flying Dutchman boat with Pegasus (Intamin junior woodie) in the background
A train climbing the lift hill of Pegasus.
A cute coaster but we rode it only once and that was enough! A bit painful in the back seat...
Just a lovely sight!
The Carrousel Palace (inside is also the Diorama)
Liesbeth and Nelle having fun on the pirate ship.
They sat in the second row (pussies!) while Annemie and I were in the top row. It was my first time on a pirate ship and boy, this one goes very high! Wheeeee!
Lady, I would appreciate it if you make them stop puking water all over the place!
Let's ride around in the snail-monorail!
The snails go through the trees and over the water.
You get to see the houses from the People of Laaf at close quarters.
You even go through the houses!
Liesbeth enjoying the snail-monorail.
Hey! Stop following us!!
We also checked out the houses by foot.
It's really fun to discover what's inside (although this one was totally empty)
The jump house!
Liesbeth is jumping but Annemie is all "Meh, whatever..."
The camera made this pic on his own with the self-timer and we thought it turned out great!
Hmmmmm... Laaf-made pastry...
Laaf with evil smile thinks "Hee hee, I going to mix some old leftovers in this paste... Nobody will notice!"
Taaa ta ta taaa ta ta tatadaaaah!
Carnaval Festival has the most contagious theme song ever!
Everything in this ride makes me smile!
Guusje is too cute!
Poor Loekie! He's freezing his a$$ off!
The drums of Africa! Black Mamba!
Oh, wait, that's another theme park ;)
Loekie and Guusje dance the hula!
Here comes the Python!
It's a Vekoma with good loopings, the corkscrews are just OK.
A train full of happy people!
Corky (that's the name of this train, the other one is called Loopy) doing that loop-da-loop thing
Corky coming OUT of the trees!
And again going in... ;)
Everything is themed at the Efteling!
A lovely entrance sign for the Fairy Tale Forest
The witch with the drop of mucus dangling from her nose welcomes us!
The Troll King!
He talks nonsense but he's made by the creators of "Spitting Image" so he's cool!
Annemie listening to the music that the gnomes make in their little houses.
Ah, the Little Mermaid!
Another caption could be "BOOBS!"
Yo mister! You might want to do something about the smell of your breath!
Mother Goat strolling around in the forest.
Little does she know that there's an ugly costumer at her door!
There's that ugly costumer!
But it seems that he dressed up for the occasion!
The beautiful house where the seven little goats live.
I love the carved face!
"Nibble, nibble, little mouse, who is gnawing at my house?"
Here is Mother Hulda.
Nothing special at first sight...
But she can make it snow if you call her! Wheeee!
Liesbeth imitating the gnome Little Message.
That sure seems an uncomfortable pose to me!
The beautiful Heralds Place.
And finally the sun came out!
Some lovely buildings with fairy tales inside.
A funky pink pigeon!
Donkey-quota double fulfilled!
This beautiful signs leads you to the fairy tale of the Indian Water-lilies.
Looking back to Heralds Place
The Fata Morgana building: nice and quiet on the outside, terrible creatures on the inside!
Little baby ducks are cute!
The themed entrance of Bird Rok
(too bad that's almost the only themeing the rollercoaster got)
Giant fake bird and tiny real bird make a cute couple!
Thanks for sharing these pictures. It's always nice to see how other people experience their park visits.
There are some pictures of details i've totally missed during previous visits..
Looking forward to next summers visit
