Efteling the fairytale theme park in the south of Holland has revealed new images of the Nest! play forest, which plans to open later this summer.
The dragon tower is now complete with 14 dragon teeth. The tower, which houses two slides, embodies a dragon, with dragon teeth and a dragon tongue that forms one of the slides. Besides the dragon theme, visitors to Nest! will also encounter other recognisable elements from the exciting Ruigrijk area of the park. The playground equipment in the play forest is surrounded by an 80 metre-long wooden board walk, which is wheelchair friendly. All children can play there together safely and to their hearts’ content.
Many natural materials are being used in the construction of Nest!. All the play equipment fits in perfectly with the woody environment of the surrounding Ruigrijk area, where many of Efteling’s roller coasters are located. It will therefore give a natural feeling with as little stimuli as possible from outside. For the durability of Nest! play forest, certified Robinia wood is used for all elements.
