Called in Dutch Sprookjesbos, the massive walk-through attraction is the heart of Efteling, which is a two-time winner of our Theme Park Insider Award as the world's Best Theme Park. The "Six Swans" will be the 30th fairy tale in the forest and will open to the public on September 28.
While many of the fairy tales are represented by detailed installations, some stand as attractions unto themselves, including shows employing animatronics and even Pepper's Ghost effects. And there's this.

Six Swans will become the first ride in Sprookjesbos, as visitors will be able to climb aboard the swans as they float around the castle moat.
The story of the Six Swans is one of six princes who are turned into swans by their jealous stepmother. So it's up to their little sister to break the spell by sewing six shirts from flowers, while not speaking or laughing for six years. (People who came up with fairy tales had some issues, amirite?)Tweet
