Day 4 at Efteling Theme Park

At 9am this morning everyone left for the 1½ hour journey to Europe’s largest Theme Park called ‘Efteling’. Efteling is a fantasy themed amusement park in Kaatsheuvel where all the attractions are based on elements from ancient myths and legends, fairy tales, fables and folklore. Needless to say, they all had an absolutely amazing time! Although it was a very warm, grey and humid day, this did not dampen their spirits or sense of adventure. In fact, many of the children displayed amazing feats of bravery as they attempted rides on rollercoasters for the very first time! One of the rides many embarked on was the brand new roller coaster called ‘The Baron’, which incorporates a vertical drop! Such was their courage today that some were given special ‘Awards for Bravery’!!! 

Healthy eating was certainly not on the agenda, as they devoured chips and strange, but tasty, sausages – all washed down with doughnuts and fizzy drinks! After all this exceptionally ‘healthy food’ (!?) it was time to go onboard the ‘Pirate Ship’. Amazingly, no one was sick!!!

They returned this evening, exhausted yet elated, at 7.30pm. A long, but extremely successful day…
