A carefree school trip

Start your school trip well-prepared. This is what you need to know now...

Changes and cancellations

As long as you have not yet paid, you can change or cancel your booking through your account up to 3 days prior to your visit date. After payment, your booking is confirmed.

Entrance and parking tickets

After payment, you will find the entrance tickets and any car park tickets in your account. Print all tickets in advance, sort them and hand them out to the students and supervisors before you arrive at Efteling. That way you will go through the ticket checkpoint the quickest.

Arrival and parking

On the day of the visit, you have access to Efteling from half an hour after opening time onwards. If the park opens at 10.00 am, you may therefore enter from 10.30 am.

Bus parking is free, but cars need a parking ticket. Drop-off and pick-up is possible at the special area next to the public transport bus stops.

First aid

There is one first aid post at Efteling. It is located in the enchanting Marerijk, to the left of the Carousel Palace. Every Efteling employee can call the First aid post if necessary.


Right after the entrance, you can pick up a free map of the park. You can also find the map in the Efteling app, which you can install on your smartphone. You can also find the current waiting and show times here.


In primary education, 1 companion may accompany 4 pupils at the school rate. In secondary education, this is 1 companion to 8 students. Would you like to bring along more companions? This is possible at the group rate.

Special needs education often demands more supervision. In this case, all the companions pay the school rate.


Efteling employees are present at each attraction and it is important to follow their instructions. For instance: please take note of the required height per attraction; make sure you always remain seated during the ride; never get out when this is prohibited; keep your hands and feet inside; do not switch to other boats or carriages and do not hold loose objects such as telephones or cameras.

Meeting up

If you're on a school trip, it's handy to have a meeting point. Did you know that Efteling has a number of handy meeting points? For example the picnic field on the left next to the Python roller coaster and the playing field in Reizenrijk! At the end of the day, it is best to gather on the square in front of the Efteling Theatre.
