The fairytale continues at Efteling C


aro, a new Efteling theatre production, celebrated its opening night on Saturday 16 September at the Efteling Theatre in Kaatsheuvel.Jam-packed with


acrobatics, special effects, song and dance, Caro is almost entirely without spoken word in order to appeal to audiences from all over the world. Marcel Visscher and Talita Angwarmasse, as Mr and Mrs Time, were part of the cast and crew who received a standing ovation at the close of the very first showing.


The show was developed as part of the theme park’s aim to focus on international visitors and establish itself as a short-break destination. Additionally, Efteling’s plan to expand the park by eight hectares has been approved

The municipality has imposed restrictions on the park, citing that attractions in the


eastern region of Efteling should not exceed 35m – though the park previously wanted to be able to build to a height of 50m. Now, fairy-tale themed Efteling has been allowed to grow to a maximum of seven million visitor per year.

fairytale in its Fairytale Forest. Called The Six Swans (and based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale of the same name), the attraction will be the 30th to join the forest, the first to be combined with a mini-ride, and feature a castle monument and six swan-shaped boats. Efteling will welcome a new family rollercoaster in spring 2020: Max & Moritz, a Mack Rides double roller coaster that will replace the Bobsleigh run. Designed for children between the ages of four and ten years old, the coaster takes its inspiration from the famous German poem from 1865, detailing the mischievous hijinks of the two boys.
