Kaatsheuvel, The Netherlands,

Efteling extends summer programme

In July and August, Efteling is open until 23.00 every Friday and Saturday

During the months of July and August, Efteling, the theme park in the south of Holland, once again sparkles with summer activities. During the sultry summer months, the park will be open until 20.00 every day. Plenty of time to visit the new dark ride Symbolica, meet the inhabitants of the Fairytale Forest or visit the live parkshow Raveleijn with daring stunt horse riders.​
On Friday and Saturday the park remains open until 23.00! During these summer evenings, nine squares throughout Efteling feature special live entertainment in an invigorating theatre-festival atmosphere. This allows visitors more time to visit Efteling in the dark, to see the enchanting illuminated fairytales and to catch a ride in one of the roller coasters until late in the evening.

Summer evenings
On all Friday and Saturday evenings in July and August, visitors can explore nine unique areas throughout the park and be treated to live performances from various artists, acrobats, musicians and performers, while enjoying a bite to eat and a drink. There is something for everyone. Daring stunt horse riders and tough swordsmen, or the characteristic heroes from the time of the Flying Dutchman. The youngest are invited to the Pyjama Party of Mr Sandman's little helpers and Oriental Magic takes over the Fata Morgana square with thrilling illusions and lightning quick street magicians.
