Efteling Midsummer Night: 5 x fun things for 30-somethings

14 July 2015

Efteling Midsummer Night is also fun for grown-ups!

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to Efteling to experience the first edition of Efteling Midzomernacht myself. Well, that was so much fun! I actually have quite a bit of fears for heights, so you won’t see me near a fairground or theme park unless there’s more fun things to do there. And Efteling really has a lot of other things to do then the usual rides during events like the Efteling Midsummer Night. Here I listed 5 x fun things to do and tips while in your 30s so you have a blast on your next trip to the Efteling!


5 x fun at the Efteling

1. Efteling-app
Before you go, it would be wise to first download the Efteling-app on your phone. That’s because the Efteling Midsummer Night is only one evening a year and you’d want to do and see as much as you can. It’s really handy as a guide and has all the show times and routes in the park :-).

2. Food, food and drinks!
During the Efteling Midsummer Night there’s a little foodtruck festival going on where you can have some good food. Most foodtrucks are stationed at one field, but there are also a few good trucks elsewhere in the park. If you see you Smokey Goodness at the next edition, then definitely try out their food. Amazing meatballs and burgers, yum!

Take a “break” from time to time and enjoy one of the acts that are being performed everywhere in the park. I personally really liked the Aquanura show, that is very spectacular and only shown during special events.

Definitely go in one of the rides to get your daily dose of adrenaline for more excitement at the Efteling. So like I already said I have a fear of heights, but I went for it anyways and had a ride in the Bird Rok attraction. Since this one is completely in the dark, you can’t really tell how high you are, haha!

Efteling gets it, because during the Efteling Midsummer Night they also organised a little silent disco party! Enjoy a night of dancing in “the nature”, with a glass of Scroppino or a delicious ice cream. Can it get even better?

Enjoy your Midsummer Night next year if you’re going, I’m already looking forward to it myself!
