With which attractions you MUST drive?

Of course, that depends a lot on age and interests. I would say: Basically, the attractions belong Dromflucht and Symbolica for visitors of all ages to the compulsory program. Otherwise you should get the roller coaster not to be missed:

  1. Joris en de Draak (wooden roller coaster)
  2. Baron (water roller coaster with 37.5 meters vertical fall), from 1.40 m Baby Swicht & Single R >The Baron Roller Coaster

Otherwise, my son still has that Villa Volta especially liked – in this rotating house you have the feeling, you would be upside down. The haunted castle the children found rather unspectacular:

My daughter took the ride with the Pirana waterway Great:

The Raveleijn rider show came in well with both children:

Tree houses in the holiday park Loonsche Land

We have in Holiday park Loonsche Land Overnight, a small holiday park on the edge of a nature reserve. The park consists of a main building, which also houses the family-friendly breakfast room, with themed rooms divided into small rooms Wooden houses right on the water lie, out Holiday houses for up to 12 people and off tree houses, I personally liked it very much, but at the time of our trip, unfortunately, were already booked. Therefore, we have one of the Theme room Stayed right on the water, and loved the atmosphere:

From inside was ours Theme room modern and functional. In addition to the living room / bedroom there is a children’s bedroom, a bathroom and the separate toilet. In addition to an LCD TV, there was also an electric kettle, a coffee machine and a fridge. There was no kitchenette or dishes – but the possibility to order between 16-21.30 clock pizza. &# 128521;

Another tip: In the park Loonsche Land there is no supermarket, so you should bring everything you need with you. If something is missing, there is a mini-market next to the reception of the hotel Bosriijk with the essentials (for example, baguette, cosmetics). The nearest supermarket is in Kaatsheuvel, about 7 minutes away by car.

Our conclusion:

We have the Efteling Park very much. Due to the many green and the music just creates a very special, fairytale atmosphere. Anyway, next year we really want to come back! Oh yes, I have just added a new point -> my bucket list added: stay once in the Golden Suite of the Efteling Hotel.
