Grote Zweefmolen is a Chair-O-Plane built by Wooddesign Amusement Rides currently located at Efteling in Kaatsheuvel, North Brabant, The Netherlands.


The ride replaced the original Grote Zweefmolen that opened in 1977. This version closed unannounced and demolition began immediately. The new version was an exact replica of the original, including the themed plates on the side. [1]


The ride is located within the "Anton Pieckplein" (roughly translating to "Anton Piecksquare"), an area of the park themed to an old timey Dutch village in the middle of a classic funfair. Other rides in this area are Anton Pieckcarrousel, Kleine Zweefmolen, Vermolenmolen and Vlindermolen. The area received a facelift in 2003, adding more theming and removing some older rides (such as the Jeepmolen).[2]


Grote Zweefmolen is Dutch for "Big Chair-O-Plane"
