Europa Park Reopens to Guests

May 29, 2020, 12:06 PM · Germany's Europa Park - the second-most-visited park in Europe - today welcomed back guests for the first time since closing during the pandemic.

The park is requiring guests to make timed reservations in advance online to visit the park, to limit capacity and help ensure safe social distancing inside. In addition, Europa Park has expanded the use of virtual queues and contactless payments while also adding disinfection stations and extra cleaning throughout the park. Here's a video from the park, explaining the new procedures.

In addition to today's reopening, Europa Park has announced that its new Pirates in Batavia dark ride will debut to the public on July 30. This new attraction replaces the popular indoor boat ride of the same name that was destroyed in a 2018 fire at the park. We took a look at the ride's development earlier this month.

After a rough start, Germany has been handling this better than many nations (especially in Europe) so not surprising they're back on track already.

And I look forward to what kind of "new rules" videos Disney and Universal put out.
