Win a family break for four at this enchanting European theme park

Create magical memories on a trip to Efteling

The Caribou has partnered with Efteling, one of Europe’s biggest theme parks, to offer one reader a family break for four.

Dubbed ‘the biggest theme park you’ve never heard of’, Efteling is also the oldest theme park in Europe – Walt Disney even paid a visit to get inspiration for his original Disneyland.

This enchanting attraction is located in southern Holland, just 45 minutes from Rotterdam, half an hour from Eindhoven and three and a half hours from Calais – making it easy to get to from the UK.

Open 365 days a year, the park is set in 177 acres of natural forest, where you will find a plenty of unforgettable experiences for children of all ages.


See Cinderella and more fairytale favourites in the Fairytale Forest

The Fairytale Forest is home to a host of well-known faces, including Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel and Pinocchio. It is also home to the Fairytale Tree, which tells fairy stories to enthralled youngsters. What’s more, in this forest the mushrooms play music and the birds sing – making it all the more magical.

If its thrills you’re after then Efteling does not disappoint. Fast-paced rides include Vogelrok, which sees riders hurtling through the dark, and Baron 1898, a dive rollercoaster with a thrilling 37.5m free-fall into an underground mineshaft at 90kph!


Experience the thrills of Efteling’s high-octane rides

There’s also George and the Dragon, an original double-railed wooden rollercoaster – a real treat for ‘coaster enthusiasts – and the Piraña river rapids.

There’s plenty to discover for those who prefer a more relaxed pace too, including Dreamflight, a world of fairies, trolls and goblins, plus a maze, haunted house, carousel and much more.

The park’s live experiences are also a must-do. Don’t miss the amazing Raveleijn live show based on a mythical city where a group of fearless youngsters try to conquer the evil ruler, Count Olaf Grafhart. It’s an action packed show including stunt horse riders, a disappearing Princess and a five-headed, fire-breathing dragon.
