First we planned a dayvisit to De Efteling, then we wanted to make it a 4 day trip to De Efteling, MPG, CentrO and Phantasialand. But as for some reason all hotels near MPG & CentrO were full, the trip was shortened again to a 2 day trip.
But I took lots of pictures during those 2 days so that this TR will consist out of 4 parts :
1. De Efteling
2. De Efteling hotel
3. Moviepark Germany
4. Horror Fest
We entered the park through the special hotel entrance. My daughters started cleaning up the park immediately.
There are about 10 of those things spread over the park and kids really like it and they pick up every piece of paper from the ground to throw it in those things. Cedar Fair, are you reading this ??
De Efteling is really one of the most beautiful parks I've ever been to.
As we entered the park at the other side of the park, it looked like we were the only ones in the park.
Did I mention the park is beautiful ?
First ride of the day.
De Vliegende Hollander
The new duelling woodies will rise over there.
The waiting row is in fact the best part of the ride.
As they were only loading at one side of the station, there was a 10 minutes waiting row. Together with the 10 minutes row at Droomvlucht, those were the only lines we had to conquer during our visit.
Front of the boats.
While we were already in the station, they started loading the other side of the station aswell.
My oldest daughter and I.
It's been already a while since I rode De Vliegende Hollander. Actually it has been since the press opening that I rode it.
I remembered it to be a nice ride.
But now it was already shaking a bit. Not painful yet though.
My wife and youngest daughter waiting for us.
It doesn't look like it, but you actually don't get wet at all.
Take the tunnel !
No, I don't want to ride you ... ;-)
My daughters were allowed to do a walk-back.
Honey, I'm leaving you.
Inside what probably is the smoothest Vekoma I know.
As I only live about 40 minutes driving from De Efteling, we actually never stayed for the night at the Efteling Hotel, although I'm a huge addict to themeparkhotels.
My daughters didn't have school on Thursday and Friday, weather forecast was great, so we decided to make it a more day trip and stay for the night at De Efteling Hotel.
I knew how it looks from the outside. Like this.
But never have been inside.
I made an online reservation but the themed suites couldn't be booked online. So I was glad there were still themed suites available when checking in.
But before we go to the room, some more lobby theming.
Hotel entrance to the park.
Ok, on to the room. The Coca-Cola suite was still available so we decided to take that one.
My wife was happy with the Senseo coffiemaking machine in the room.
When entering the room, we felt like entering a Coca Cola museum.
Damn, only 4 free Cola bottles.
The company story
Ok, there is more to drink.
My daughters really enjoyed the room.
Venus in furs.
I was able to keep an eye on my car while being at our room.
Beatles drinking coke.
Almost time for dinner. But first some more hotel exploring.
Some other themed suites.
I want something like that in my garden.
Time for dinner. While waiting for food, my daughters got something to do.
For how nice of a park moviepark Germany looks they seem to have a terruble ride collection. I mean SLC, RCCA woodie, and various kiddie coasters does not make it seem very appealing in a coaster sense. Anyway, it looks like you had a good time, which is what really matters.
