There are a couple of new attractions coming to the Fairy Tale Forest soon!

Firstly, a new talking tree (Babbelboom) will be installed in the forest between the Little Match Girl and the Emperor’s New Clothes.

This tree will speak directly to visitors in a similar way to the existing fairy tale tree, but the messages will be more personal.  This works from the Efteling app, so visitors wishing to communicate with the tree will have to give permission on there first.  I can’t wait to see it!

Another addition will be a whole new fairy tale!  In fact, it will be the 30th fairy tale to be represented in the forest, with work starting on the construction this October, and the opening being in Autumn 2019.  The Six Swans by the Brothers Grimm is what we have to look forward to, and it will be located between Snow White and Cinderella.  A moat will surround the building, and small children will be able to take a ride on one of the six swans around the attraction, whilst larger guests can view a scene inside of the castle.
