Continuing from my tales about my newly found retirement home last week, this week I'm sharing photos from de Efteling, which we visited just before Easter.
There's something for everyone, for all age ranges. There are roller coasters and gently moving boats, a haunted house and fairy tale forest, shows and a maze, carousels and old timers.
We went on a day that was 'rustig', although half of Belgium seemed to be in the park. The queues were all relatively short (no more than 20 minutes though some did creep up longer than this and we avoided those attractions). With small children standing for an hour in a line is just not fun but there is a handy app which shows just how long the wait time is for the rides, plans the route for you for preferred rides etc - well worth downloading before you go and there is free WIFI in the park.
We had a great day, the kids came home tired but happy and to be honest we had the feeling like we had barely covered half the park in a day.
