This seems like a really cool ride! But what happened to the fix this theme park series? You have kind of let that just end without going anywhere...

Very neat attraction with a considerably ambitious scope. It's easy to overlook all the interesting experiences at theme parks overseas.

I'm glad to see Efteling featured on this site. I'm a long time theme park insider fan but have been put out by the extra love given to Disney attractions. Over the past few years I've experienced several theme parks that seem to surpass Disney if not in quality than in theming (WWoHP being a standout at Universal). I actually visited Efteling this past fall and can safely say that it is one of the best themed parks (and most beautifully laid out overall) parks I have ever been to. Everything and I mean everything in that park is themed (the ATM machines are 10 ft tall treasure chests!). I hope that Robert will be able to visit this park in the near future, true the language barrier does take a bit away from the attractions and some of the older attractions have become a bit dated but there is no denying the quality and design that has gone into the park.

David, Fix the Park is coming back - I just got sidetracked with some additional research needed for a couple parks I want to feature.

Ok, glad it's coming back! And extra research typically means better, so I'm really looking forward to it.

While this attraction is indeed very nice, Droomvlucht (dream flight) is even better. It's a nice park and you was so close when you went to England and Paris, it would have been a easy stop.

You do remember Revenfe of the Mummy is Singapore ends in a bad way for riders? That makes 4 rides without happy endings.

We're actually going to get to Droomvlucht and the Singapore version of Mummy later in this series. And, FWIW, I should have noted that my conversation with Bob happened before the Singapore park opened, so that version of Mummy wasn't around yet.

This ride reminds me of the Sinbad ride at DisneySea. I found it weird that there wasn't even anybody in line for the ride. PS: I really appreciate your tributes to underrated attractions.
