With the whole family to the Efteling

Last May 11th, the whole of Creetion went to the Efteling in Kaatsheuvel with partners and children. It was a super cozy family day! Gather at 10 o’clock in front of the entrance to the most beautiful amusement park in the Netherlands (or perhaps even in Europe). That’s where the kids got what they love: a bag of candy.

The weather was bad and the access was also well arranged. No long lines, but straight through and so straight into the park. And even though it was organised on a Saturday at the weekend, the queues were also very good.

To please everyone, it was organised in such a way that everyone had the freedom to give their own interpretation of how they wanted to fill out this day. Some people went out with groups of colleagues, whom they got to know that day even better and in a different setting. Team building in optima forma! Others chose to focus more on the family after weeks of hard work. And others did so with multiple families together.

It is striking how easily children (who do not know each other) get along and adapt to a new setting. Some adults can take an example of this and learn from it. Adventurously most kids wanted all the attractions in. The harder and more spinning and spinning the better. Unfortunately, some children were still too young or rather too small for some attractions. Safety above all else, but that wasn’t supposed to depress the fun. Something for every age: from the fairy forest to the Python, from the Baron 1898 to Villa Volta and from the Ravelijn show to Carnival Festival.

Time flies when you’re having a good time and so it was lunch time soon: nice fat bite with a drink. Then quickly into the park to experience more attractions: Vogel Rok, Pirana, Dream Flight …. Too much to do in one day. Or just have a nice meal and drink on a terrace with colleagues. The day has flown by and everyone has gone home in a very satisfied way. Awaiting the next Creetion event!
