    Second 'Making of..' video

    Mentions choosing your own "tour", each one having a different theme.
    Also brief shots of the interior + props. Loving the Gothic vault ceiling.

    I do really like that they've used real copper for the roof, it'll start to look really beautiful when it weathers, turning into that beautiful green/blue colour, adding much needed contrasting colour to the world of beige...

    OK, I've read this thread thoroughly and I'm still none the wiser.

    What exactly is this?

    This is what can be seen from Efteling's "Pagoda".

    Not ideal, but the park are planning the most amazing thing - a palace roof garden!

    There's going to be loads of solar panels up there too, so I doubt the public will be allowed up there but at least it'll look nicer from above!

    Surely they needed to make it look fab because of the Flying Island?

    I guess it's to make up for the removal of the iconic flowery "E" that used to be there. Still hurts a little.

    Efteling have unveiled another room in the ride...




    It looks incredible but I have one concern. They have decorated the floor, on Ratatouille there were huge track marks within months of opening and that has a black floor. Bit concerned they've put in a lot of effort into something which is going to age horrifically.

    It's a trackless dark ride similar to Ratatouille at DLP and Mystic Manor and Hong Kong Disney - it's looking more like the latter as you seem to get a tour of the elaborate and extravegent mansion.
    The cars wander around the floor independently with no physical track

    Hope I got that right!
