So Disney has its fast pass, and other parks have similar ways of ensuring that you don’t need to stand in line for your favourite rides. Efteling however, have never installed these queue-beating solutions into their park. Now though, their new idea is for the guest to select a time that they want to ride, and then come back later.
Take a look at the BBC’s video on what this entails:
I do hope you will be implementing this measure soon. I visited the park last August and my daughter and us had to give up riding most attractions due to 1 hour (and more) queues. We enjoyed the day; however, for a 1 day visit is virtually impossible to ride most of the top attractions if you want do other than mere queueing . We actually were nearly limited to some minor attractions and strolling to and fro. I’m aware that it was peak season, but please understand that 1 hour queing for 2 minutes ride it’s discourageous, we felt a bit disappointed realising that our daughter couldn’t take the most of the experience.
Another point I’d like to draw your attention is to the entrance queue. I had an online ticket to avoid them, just to check that we were addressed to a really slow unexpected queue when the staff saw it was a snack pack online ticket and we had to collect the food tokens.
All in all the park is beautiful, original and surprising, The App is really helpful as well as a time safe. Maybe a good improvement would being able to find your exact location in the map. The staff was friendly and attentive, they made us feel welcome.
I’m afraid we’ll need a second visit… 🙂
Thank you and kind regards,
Hi Rafa, thanks for visiting our page. I feel that your comments would be better directed at the official Efteling Facebook page or perhaps in an email. You make a good point about queues and hopefully this new method will help cut wait times!
