You may have seen this already if you follow the Facebook page but I had to share it here for everyone else.

This was taken this afternoon by Ronald from pinparade.nl which shows the side of the Efteling Theater and one of the Aquanura frogs.

I recently posted about the new stained glass (effect?) windows at the House of the Five Senses, and how beautiful they are. Well my friend at Pinparade.nl sent over some more photos so you can see even more detail in the windows (I personally can’t get enough of them!)

Restaurant Octopus Updates

Tags

, , , ,

If you’re a follower of this page then you may have noticed that I’m quite a fan of Restaurant Octopus.  The theming is great and the food is pretty good too!  Of course, later this year Pandadroom will be replaced with a new show called Fabula, and with that comes some changes to the Octopus eatery at the end of the attraction.

Work has, however, started on that already as you can see from this video of the outside of the restaurant, where a terrace is being built.  You can’t knock extra seating, especially on a nice day!  There is also a a new digital board outside, advertising the sorts of food that you can find inside.  I’m hungry just looking at it!

Carnaval Festival Reopens

Tags

, ,

Carnaval Festival has been closed for around 3 months for a little refurbishment. There have been several changes made to the ride, and in my opinion it is looking really rather good!

Things have been mentioned in the past by various sources that some of the scenes were a little on the racist side of things. Whether they were or not, some of these scenes have now been altered, although in some cases only slightly! The African, Chinese and Japanese scenes have been changed slightly, and the pirate at the end of the ride has been removed to make way for Jokie and Jet. The Japanese man at the end of the ride is also looking slightly different and there are some general tidy-ups throughout the ride like the frogs at the start, who look a lot fresher. The music has been tweaked too (don’t worry it’s mostly the same stuck-in-your-head-all-day track!).

Here’s the video:

Oh, and remember when the vehicles stopped now and then? Well they still do, but now you get to have a little wiggle in your seat to a fanfare until it starts back up again! It makes stopping so much more exciting! 😁

In addition to the ride changes, the store at the end where you buy your on-ride photos is now called Confetti, and has been given a face-lift which looks much brighter and more in-keeping with the shop next door.

All in all, everything is looking great!

I have been watching a lot of videos by this channel recently, Theme Park Worldwide.  You can visit so many theme parks from the comfort of your living room through these guys, and of course, there is an Efteling vlog on the channel!  A few in fact.  I thought I’ll share a couple here, but please do check out the channel, you can learn all kinds of things about loads of different theme parks!

Fabula Trailer (Pandadroom Replacement)

Tags

, , , ,

A short trailer for Fabula has arrived on Efteling’s YouTube channel. It’s only 40 seconds long, but gives a little look at the squirrel and bear characters that will be in the new attraction. Of particular interest to us in the UK, the studio animating the film is Aardman (Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run etc).

The renewed attraction opens later this year, and is costing Efteling €3.5 million; bargain! The restaurant Octopus will also be freshened up. From the Efteling blog:

The restaurant will have more seats inside and outside and a new menu with fresh and responsible meat, fish and vegan dishes

The last day guests can visit Pandadroom will be November 3rd.
