Efteling
Kaatsheuvel, 5171 KW

Python is a double-loop Corkscrew roller coaster in the Efteling amusement park in the Netherlands. When it started operation, it was the largest steel roller coaster on the European mainland.History and detailsWith Python, Efteling started the implementation of a new strategy: development from a fairy-tale forest into an all-round amusement park. This change led to many problems with the local community. Environmentalists tried to get the building permit withdrawn, and the park's neighbors feared more problems arising from growing visitor numbers. Because of the likely noise pollution, the highest court of public justice ordered the construction to be stopped. After some time, construction could recommence, but legal problems continued for several more years.In 1995, when operating hours were extended until 10 pm, the coaster's 45-decibel noise level became a problem once more. Plans were submitted to the local municipality, describing an extension and complete renovation of the coaster, which would reduce the noise substantially. Due to the high cost, the funds were allocated to the construction of a new enclosed (to reduce noise problems for the park's surroundings) roller coaster, Bird Rok.Efteling hoped to get a night license for Python with some small renovations (new trains and a chain lift), but only with a change in the permit could Python remain open until 10 pm.In 2005 the trains were replaced by Kumbak Coasters designed by Karel Willemen and in December 2011 with Vekoma MK1212 trains.

Swiss Bob is a Bobsled roller coaster in amusement park Efteling in the Netherlands.Ride"Bobbaan" has 8 trains, each with a capacity of 6 passengers. The original Bobsleds, with inline seating, were replaced with new trains that sit 2 across in order to increase the ride capacity and fight back the extreme queue times (of up to 90 minutes). The original Bobsled cars were replaced by sleds with a wooden theming that matches the station’s classical Austrian Alps style. The original trains were sold to Six Flags Over Texas for their La Vibora bobsled roller coaster. It is a smooth ride, especially since the original steel wheels were replaced by softer ones in order to comply with the night- opening license. The ride meanders through the trees, and has some drops, curves and points where the ride really picks up some speed.MusicThe music in the station is traditional Austrian music.

Kaatsheuvel, Netherlands 5171 KW

Bird Rok is an enclosed roller coaster in amusement park Efteling in the Netherlands.History and detailsThe name of the ride, Bird Rok, refers to the adventure of Sinbad and the Bird Roc from the 1001 Arabian Nights; the extensive theming covers, beside the ride, the building and the queue line. The building has as a frontage a giant colorful Roc, the largest bird in Europe, according to the Guinness Book of Records. In the opening year there weren’t a lot of effects in the ride, and the link between the story and the ride wasn’t very clear. Since then a Serpent’s mouth has been added at the end of the ride, which lights up as the train goes through it. There used to be a laser-light-show at the queue, but that has been removed. This was done because the lights were too low, and people would look at them, thereby damaging their eyes. In 2007, more themed decorations were added.The RideLasers project over the train as it climbs the lift-hill and seen to the left are four Rocs flying off. In a strong curve down leftwards the train dives towards the ground and several more curves bring the train through a tunnel of lasers. The train then falls into a helix and goes through a Serpent’s mouth, which lights up as the train passes through it. The last curve is decorated with fiber optic lights, portraying the diamond treasure. Apparent wind-effects stimulate the ride-experience.

De Molen was a restaurant in Kaatsheuvel, Netherlands. It was a fine dining restaurant that was awarded one Michelin star for the period 2008–2014. On 14 July 2014 it was announced that the restaurant was closed with immediate effect due to bankruptcy. The economic crisis and the expensive location proved fatal for the restaurant.In 2013, GaultMillau awarded the restaurant 16 out of 20 points.Head chef of De Molen was Wouter van Laarhoven. Maître Jerry van der Pluijm was the owner of the restaurant, which he opened in 2000.De restaurant was housed in the former storage area of corn mill ''''. This mill was built in 1849 but burned down and was repaired in 1881. In 1944, the mill was renewed only to be severely damaged in October 1944 during the liberation of Kaatsheuvel. Due to lack of funds, the mill was dismantled in 1950 and the milling was done with power of an diesel engine. The mill was sold in 1994 and the new owner wanted to have a windmill again. After a long and costly renovation, the mill was working again in 1998.
