Efteling is adjusting a number of Asian and African dolls in its 35 years old Carnaval Festival attraction, the amusement park announced on Wednesday. This follows criticism that some of the dolls in the attraction show stereotypical or racist characteristics, NU.nl reports.
Last year a massive 5.18 million people visited amusement park Efteling, compared to 4.76 million in 2016. The park in Kaatsheuvel is pleased that it reached the "magic line" of 5 million visitors, a goal Efteling has been aiming at since 2014, NU.nl reports.
Efteling attributes the increase in visitors to investments in new family attraction Symbolica and holiday park Efteling Loonsche Land.
