Once a quaint nature park, Efteling has grown to become a large, fantasy theme park. When it opened in 1952 with a playground and fairytale forest, no one could have predicted that it would evolve to be twice the size of the original Disneyland. While the park remains true to its origins by incorporating elements of fairy tales and folklore into its attractions and entertainment, it now has a total of 36 rides, including four water slides. Take your family on a trip through mythical worlds, enjoy the park's renowned greenery and gardens, and share in the excitement of roller coasters and thrill rides.

Our day started with Baron 1898 which immediately blew us away with the overall storyline and experience. Moving to other coasters, this remained the same: incredible theming and great ride...

Most amazing park. What makes It so special is the rides for small children, age 3-5. Piranha and Max&Moriz are awesome. Lots of places where to eat nice/fun food. The app is great. Next time we will go for 2 days.
Lots of good old-fashioned fun! The fairytale forest remains a wonderful attraction to visit, especially for children. It is somewhat outdated, perhaps, but not past its time. Quaint and wonderful. The most wonder is in the details. There are hidden critters, creatures and decor features all over the park. There are roller coasters and rides for all levels of bravery. And the fantasy family rides are fun and well made.
