question if did ban the curse of Hugo after you went on Villa Volta:
course not! He actually says: "Only a person with the innocence of
a new-born child can relieve me from this curse", and babies/very
small children are not allowed in Villa Volta. So there you have it: no
one can (and will) break the curse ;-)
Villa Volta. That catchy name (along with the outstanding music of the
ride buzzing in your head) alone says it all. Wonderful.
In addition, I don't
agree with the 'main' review on one point. That review states that it is
a 'shame' that Villa Volta doesn't stop upside down, but I do think
stopping upside down kills the Mad House-illusion, for then you feel
you're not upside down, but you should feel like you are upside down.
Even a 3-second pause upside down can kill the illusion (look at Feng Ju
Palace!). And that would be a shame for Villa Volta.
It's a great ride,
although the story gets boring after a while and you wish the ride
itself would last longer. But all the effects and details are just excellent.
And as is said the music is also very good, the only melody in the Efteling
that can compete with it is the one from Carnival Festival (nice to ride
when your having something to eat and drink).

I loved Villa Volta. The
theming is top class and the ride could easily hold it's own in any
Disney park. It makes a change to ride a REAL family attraction.
AMAZING!!! I live here in
Kaatsheuvel, just 2 miles from it. Every time I visit de Efteling, I
need to visit Villa Volta. It's fantastic.
