Our friend Mark is going to Efteling in the near future, and if offering to take photos of whatever you want to see!
‘Going to Efteling again next Sunday, and the week after that it’s Bosrijk – time! Instead of shooting loads of pictures, I thought it would be a nice challenge if you could give some pointers of something or some elements within the park to photograph, pointers clear as glass or cryptic. Perhaps other people would accept the challenge as well and send in unique pictures..?’
So, does anyone want to see something specific from Efteling? Or maybe you have your own to send in? Remember, we still would like to see photos of everyone sitting on toadstools!
If you have a request, leave a message on our Facebook wall, or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
According to looopings.nl, The Dream Flight and Fata Morgana will soon be receiving photo spots somewhere inside each ride. This will be more of a ‘journey’ photo, rather than a ‘hair-raising’ photo, which of course you can buy from George and the Dragon, the Flying Dutchman etc. We can imagine that this will be along the same lines as the photo you have taken in Carnaval Festival.
You have to wonder, where would they put the camera? On Dream Flight, as you travel along one of the dark corridors, there is a flashing light at the end, in front of you…although that would only take a photo of the first gondola out of the two, and with no atmosphere! Maybe on the way into, or on the way out of a scene would be a good place?
On Fata Morgana, how about at the start when everyone looks up at the wizard as he waves his wand? It is slightly strange of course, that you would want to buy a photo of the whole boat, especially if you are in a boat with other people, which is very likely. However, Disneyland Paris do this in Pirates of the Caribbean, but you can choose to crop most of the boat out when you come to buying the photo.
Would you rather buy a photo of you and your friends/family travelling through the Fairy Realm to a photo on the Python or Rok? Hopefully, we’ll find out more soon.
Two lovely photos were left on our Facebook wall by Mark van der Horst yesterday.
He also left a little message:
‘After 18:00 hours, everything except the restaurants and Aquanura closes or shuts down. But that’s exactly when we love to walk through the Fairy tale Forest. Of course we also love it throughout the normal opening hours, but after that it’s so tranquil and peaceful.
The weather was amazingly nice yesterday, especially at the end of the day when we traveled through the Fairytale Forest, and took some pictures with nothing more than our iPhones.’
We especially love the second photo. Langnek taking a break after a long day as the sun goes down 🙂
We were asked a question over the weekend that we can’t seem to find a solid answer to. Does anybody know anything about Father Christmas in Efteling? We know that Christmas differs between here and the Netherlands, and we have seen a few pictures of Sinterklaas arriving in the park, but we want to know if maybe you can get a bit closer? Does he have a spot in the park where maybe you could meet him or get a photo?
Any help is appreciated!
On another note, in response to the last Efteling video compilation that we shared, medsoluk has sent us their video of Efteling in the Summer. It really gets you in the mood for a summer visit to Efteling!
A while ago, Laaf Loos had a little accident. We went into the garden, and there he was, face down in the pond; he’d fallen in. But wait! His face wasn’t in the pond, as his head was on the grass! Of course he was taken in to be fixed straight away, and all was well again.
However, it happened again yesterday. Poor Loos was in the pond, and his head was on the grass. We’ve no idea how he managed it. Maybe he is trying to end it all! Hopefully not. Although, it is very strange that his little head didn’t fall in the pond with the rest of his body…And that he’d turned around before he fell in…Or maybe he was pushed?!
