Efteling Theme Park & Resort, The Netherlands, March 2016

Efteling Theme Park & Resort, The Netherlands, March 2016

I think we may be out-doing ourselves here, because this looks like heaven on earth for children. We have found an amazing Theme Park & Resort in The Netherlands, and we’re planning a trip there for Easter 2016!

This place has everything you might expect of a traditional Dutch countryside. Windmills, tulips and some beautiful scenery, but so much more than that is waiting for you.


Your accommodation is a 3 or 4-bed Lakeside Lodge, just a few minutes walk from the Resort and Theme Park. Your package includes entry to the Park for all four days of your stay, and it still might not be enough time.

Endless entertainment, rides, shows, and everything your children could dream of is just everywhere, and there are no charges for the rides, they’re all included in your entry to the Park!

A Roller Coaster ride called The Baron is 130 seconds of thrills and excitement. You, the ‘Miners’ are on a 37.5m free fall into the mining shaft to search for gold, then there’s a half-loop, a weightless-inducing corkscrew roll, and then you’re safely deposited back to earth. Not for the faint-hearted.


Another roller coaster is a double-wooden track, with riders on each, both competing in a race to the finish. A Dragon with power over water and fire threatens the kingdom, so you must protect your king!


If something more serene is your thing, then head to the flying Thai Temple, which will gently raise you above the park and rotate, so you can see all the places you’ve already visited that day, before slowly descending back to earth.


Another lovely quiet activity is a cruise on the lake or a trip on the Park Steam Train.

There really is something for everyone here. Relax in one of the many eateries while the children are entertained…


…or have a picnic at the lodge while the kids go wild in the playground.

There’s a carousel…

The longest swinging boat ride in the world…

And of course, plenty of roller coasters…

This is just a little of what you can expect, and if you want to see what else they have to offer, take a look at their complete list of attractions here, or download their handy app here!

All rides in the park are included in your entry ticket, so the only extras you have to worry about are food and drink, and of course souvenirs 🙂


But now lets look into the amazing accommodation. These spacious lodges are either 3 or 4 bedrooms, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax.

A water show like no other is celebrated throughout your stay, with spectacular lights and music co-ordinated with water jets and culminating in an eye-popping display to end your day at the park.


Flights are not included, but at the time of going to press, they’re quite affordable, coming in at about €130 per person. You’d be flying into Eindhoven Airport, departing Friday March 18th, and returning to Ireland on Monday March 21st. Entry to the Theme Park is included for Friday to Monday inclusive, with all rides and activities included so the only thing you need to spend money on is food and souvenirs.

So to include 3 nights self-catering, airport transfers and 4 days Theme Park Entry during your stay, prices are as follows:

1 adult & 1 child – €385

1 adult & 2 children – €485

1 adult & 3 children – €585

  1. Hi just enquiring about the Easter break in the Netherlands. Would it be possible to bring my mother? and what would be the cost? also my son will be 13, would he be charged an adult price? Can we pay in stages or all up front? and you have the cabin to yourself. you do not have to share with another family? (my son has autism)

    • Hi Joy, I’ll price a 2-bed apartment for you and email you on the details. The prices are per person as long as the child is over 2yrs, so it’d be the same for everyone. Talk soon!

    Hi Rose what about the following Weekend for myself and two kids age 9 and 6?

    • Hi James, At the moment we just have this one date planned for the group, but we’ll definitely be arranging another for later in the year. In the meantime I’ve added you to our mailing list so you’ll be among the first to hear about new trips, and if there are any you’re interested in just let me know and hopefully we’ll see you and your kids on a trip soon!

      • Thanks Rose. Am I too late for this planned trip and if not what is the latest date to book. I am chasing up passports. Their mother has the kids passports

        • Hi James, Today it’s still possible to put you in a house with another father and his two boys, but I’d need full payment and confirmation by the end of the week at the very latest. Can you make a direct payment in full by Friday?

          • James Mulligan says:

            Hi Rose
            Book me and my two in, please:-)
            I can do a payment transfer no bother, I just need details
