Kleine Zweefmolen is a Junior Chair-O-Plane built by an unknown manufacturer currently located at Efteling in Kaatsheuvel, North Brabant, The Netherlands.

Origin

The attraction was purchased in 1950, and opened in the park in 1951. It got a big renovation a few years later, adding themed plates to hide its inner working, this was designed by Anton Pieck.[1]

Location

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 an classic funfair. Other rides in this area are Anton Pieckcarrousel, Grote Zweefmolen, Vermolenmolen and Vlindermolen. The area got a big facelift in 2003, adding more theming and removing some older rides (such as the Jeepmolen).[2]
