We have had a lot of storms over here in the UK over the last couple of days, and it seems that this lovely weather has not been too kind to the Netherlands either; particularly Efteling. For instance, George and the Dragon has been struck by lightning and is closed for the moment until things can be fixed. At least it isn’t the dragon that is broken this time 😉
Our friends at Mushroom Productions recently shared a video with us that they recorded on Joris en de Draak. This has to be one of the only rides where it is more fun to ride separately from the rest of your group, so you can race each other to the end!
The George and the Dragon dragon is getting a little TLC at the moment. He/she is all covered up, but apparently you can still hear dragon-y noises coming from behind the construction…perhaps it is a cry of protest from the dragon?! Actually, the only parts of the dragon that are left behind the construction walls seem to be the wings.
Perhaps they are fixing its fire-breathing capabilities, as quite often, the fire simply does not appear!
Whatever they are doing, we’re sure it will look fabulous once again, and will hopefully be breathing fire to warm up Winter Efteling.
Free shipping appears to have been extended for the U.K until December 19th, so there’s still time to get your Christmas presents in! There is also a great sale on which includes 60th anniversary items, garden ornaments and DVDs. We recommend the ‘Making of George and the Dragon’ DVD, which has English subtitles, unlike the other DVDs available, and is currently only €5.99!
