The making of deel 4: Vlucht door tijd en ruimte

A flight through time and space

As soon as the engines start running, you fly from one surprise to the next. Take a unique flight over the Amsterdam canals, dive into Escher's masterpieces, skim past the huge container ships in the port of Rotterdam and immerse yourself in the musical world of the Dutch DJs. You have never seen the Netherlands like this. You have to experience it!

A safe flight

Just like in the rest of Madurodam, we also use various measures in the The Flying Dutchman for the safety of our visitors and our employees. In this way we ensure sufficient distance in and around the aircraft between households.

We take care of 1.5 meters distance between households in the airplane. You will be assigned a seat number before you board the plane. There is also sufficient fresh air circulation between each flight. You therefore do not have to wear a face mask on our plane.

Would you like to know more about our measures regarding the Corona virus? You can read all about it here.

Good to know

  • Children < 120 cm under supervision
  • The flashes of light and sound can trigger epilepsy
  • You may get dizzy
  • No food and drink allowed inside the airplane

Unique Flying Dutchman souvenirs and gifts

Eyes and hands short
