Efteling have shared a short video of Symbolica's vehicles on Facebook, and they do look rather nice.

Forgive me, I've not been following this project at all but is it an Oceaneering dark ride like Antarctica at SeaWorld Orlando?

I believe it's actually a product from Dutch manufacturer ETF Ride Systems.

Thanks for that! It looks very similar to Antarctica that's why I asked.

Episode 4 of The Making of Symbolica focuses on the ride vehicles (or Fantasy Carriages as they've been called), confirming that the ride hardware is being produced by ETF Ride Systems and that it is the Multi Mover model. The video states that there will be 34 Fantasy Carriages in total, with two adapted for disabled guests.

Efteling have shared this photo of the "King's Chamber of the Palace" on social media today, which looks to be one of Symbolica's larger scenes.

Here are also a few recent construction photos from Vifzintuigen Forum, with the exterior now very much looking like it's nearing completion.

There's some sort of press event for Symbolica today, and Episode 5 of The Making of Symbolica has been released to coincide with it, confirming an opening day of 1st July. The video focuses on the work going on inside the attraction, and Efteling have also posted plenty of photos on Twitter this morning showing progress on the interior, a selection of which are below.

The next episode of the Making of Symbolica has been released today, this time taking a look at some of the exterior landscaping taking place around the attraction, as well as the solar panelled roof, and most excitingly providing another look at different area's of the attraction's interior, with the process of programming the show sequences underway.

Wow! Efteling is with out doubt the greatest mainland European theme park I have ever seen (maybe apart for, DLP), but that ride looks fantastic!

Efteling have posted a video on Facebook of the observatory scene (not sure if this is one of the preshows or an area of the actual ride), which features a fairly nice animatronic.

Looks absolutely fantastic. I kind of gives me a Mystic Manor vibe! Also, what is all the "theming" on the roof of the show building for?

The observation tower looks over Symbolica, so they themed up the roof so it doesn't look an eyesore for the people above on the observation tower
Ride count 2017: 346!
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 857!
Cred count: 65!

With Symbolica opening tomorrow, Efteling have released on-ride POVs of the three tours through the palace:

Each tour is distinguished by the mid-portion of the ride, which involves an interactive element for guests. It certainly does look like a magical attraction, with an unquestionable Efteling vibe!

Absolutely stunning. If only we had something of that quality in the UK.
