George and the Dragon, the newest woody of GCI, opened in the Efteling today. Time to move on to the next project of the Efteling: Ravelin, old Dutch; Raveleijn. Ravelin will be themed as a compact, flourishing, medieval city. The backside of the building, facing towards the park's parking lot and a public road, will be themed as a majestic renaissance building. There will be a restaurant and multiple offices inside the building. The exterior of the building will be the decor for a huge, expensive, new park show. Around the central building they will build a themed grandstand.
The opening is scheduled for spring 2011. The project costs 30 million euros, approximately 38 million US dollars. Concept art
