Efteling

We just LOVE this spot, a stunning Theme Park and just magical wonderland in The Netherlands, everyone just has to go there at least once!

These trips are self-catering, with daily entry to the park included in each price. Also as usual, flights are not included but you should book to fly into Eindhoven airport and transfers to Efteling will be taken care of.

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 the 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’s a carousel…

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 🙂

  1. This looks great Rose. Are you doing this trip in October too? If so, what dates? Is the accomodation per family or shared with other families?

     
    • Hi Teresa, I’m actually putting that together in the next day or so, I’m just confirming the dates. There is always the option of getting an apartment to yourselves or sharing with another family, and I’ll detail the prices for both. Watch this space!
