Thank you Efteling!
Now the English-speaking visitors to Efteling can get an idea of the top attractions in the park, without having to decipher Dutch. The video can also be viewed in German and French. Très bien!
Next year we will see the addition of a new fairy tale to Efteling’s fairy tale forest… Pinocchio! The Efteling Theatre’s newest production also happens to be Pinocchio, showing later this year. The new fairy tale will be placed between the Red Shoes and Little Red Riding Hood, where an old food counter stands which hasn’t been used for some time (In de Noordpool).
We look forward to it!
Considering we were new to visiting Winter Efteling, we had a lot to take in! A few things we had seen photos of over the years, but other things were a total surprise. One of the most impressive things was not only the change in design (the ear muffs and scarf) but also the audio of the sleepy litter bin next to the train track.
He wasn’t the only one though! Kleine Boodschap shivers as he points the way to the nearest bathrooms.
As Springtime creeps up on us, so do new mugs at Efteling! Efteling have produced many small coffee mugs in the past, usually representing the different seasons, but this time they are representing different characters.
Blue Mug: Fakir
Red Mug: Roodkapje (of course!)
Yellow Mug: Heraut
Green Mug: Kabouter
To get one, you simply need to buy a coffee for 4,50, and the mug is yours!
Our doors are open if anyone would like to send us one over 😉
He was under wraps for a little while, but the Troll King has seen the light again! His makeover has really brought him back to life, and it’s not just about the new mask he’s been given. His movements seem a lot more fluid, and are those a new set of hands?! His hair and beard are also very bushy now and less ‘old’ looking. His eyes seem a lot more realistic too, he’s certainly not dead behind the eyes like he was…it’s like he’s really thinking about things, Kingly things, perhaps.
We’re also pretty sure he’s looking down his nose at everyone when the curtains open and close, but maybe that’s just the angle of the video!
With many thanks to Eftelwesley for the use of photo and video of the new King!
Just for comparison, here’s our video of the Troll King as he was previously.
