D'Oude Tuffer opened in the same year as Carnaval Festival and Polka Marina, all of them being family attractions. This was because Python and Halve Maen, both being thrill rides, opened a few years earlier, and Efteling wanted to focus on families again. The ride was designed by Henny Knoet, who also designed rides such as Monsieur Cannibale and Avonturen Doolhof as well as the park's mascot, Pardoes.
The cars of the ride were standard Mack oldtimer cars, featuring no special Efteling treatment.
After 35 years of operation, most of the cars were beyond repair due to Mack Rides no longer supporting this ride type. The Efteling had no other option but to remove the ride. It was replaced with a new tracked ride with an identical layout, this time build by Metallbau Emmeln.
After its removal, one of the cars was placed in the garden of the Efteling Museum for visitors to see.
While the ride was orginially designed as a ride through the farmland, the final version only featured one piece of farm equipment in a barn, all of the other theming was either vaguely farm related or landscaping.
The ride was located in the "Ruigrijk" area of the park, roughly translating to "Thrill Realm".
D'Oude Tuffer is old Dutch for Old Timer. The ride can also be referred to as De Oude Tufferbaan (Old Timer Track) or D'Oude Tuffers (Old Timers).
