EftelingSprookje[Book: H. Vanden Diepstraten – 2004 – 23x31cm – 206 Pages – Full colour]. A well-presented chronological history of De Efteling (Kaatsheuvel, Netherlands). Read about the founding of the park in 1951/52 and see the conceptual drawings for many of the fairytale-themed attractions including, Sleeping Beauty; Langnek; The Dancing Shoes; The Little Match Girl; and the paper eater Holle Bolle Gijs. The many rides and attractions are featured too, including the steel looping coaster, Python (1981); the wooden coaster, Pegasus (1991); Villa Volta, the Haunted Swing (1996); and Vogel Rok (1998). It’s a fascinating tale from beginning to end. (Dutch script throughout). ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good / Excellent.
