Happy New Year!
A new year means a new renovation schedule, and here’s the most intriguing one so far:
From early March to late May, Carnaval Festival will be closed for renovations. While nobody outside of Efteling knows exactly what will be changed in the ride, some people in the theme park community believe that it might include altering some of the ‘racist’ figures in the attraction. Whether you agree that racism is rife in the ride or not, it has been pointed out on several occasions that some of the ride’s figures are derogatory towards certain nationalities.
By the end of May we will know exactly what is getting changed; perhaps it is simply a Spring clean!
Until then, you can enjoy the ride as it is currently with this video:
