The Efteling is a theme park In the Netherlands. It's one of the oldest theme parks in the world, but definitely not lacking in fun! It's different from other theme parks I've been to because of the location. It's located in the center of nature which gives you the feeling that you're in an actual fairy tale! The park is gigantic and covers 160 acres. The Efteling appeals to people of all ages. There are a variety of thrill rides based on fairly tales and stories. My favorite ride was the "Fata Morgana". A ride based on the Arabian Nights tale. You get on a boat and ride through an Arabian city. The scenery is beautiful and it's animated with life-like robots along the way! Another attraction worth mentioning is the fairy tale forest which is in a wooded part of the Efteling. A forest where a number of well known fairy tales inspired by the brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen and Charles Perrault are depicted like the castle of Sleeping Beauty, The Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, etc. if more exciting rides are your style then youre in luck! The efteling has a few roller coasters! The newest addition is The flying Dutchman a combination of a Water coaster and a dark ride. Unfortunately it was under construction when i visited, but it may not be when you go!
