And that's it for Europe's top theme parks, as now Efteling in The Netherlands has announced that it also will close again as the Covid-19 pandemic continues across the continent.
Previously, theme parks in Belgium, England, France, Germany, and Italy had announced their closures as governments across Europe order new lockdowns to combat a resurgence in novel coronavirus cases. Today, Efteling announced that it will be closed for two weeks — from tomorrow through November 18 — in accordance with new Dutch rules. The Efteling hotels, holiday villages, and the Efteling Golf Park will remain open, though the swimming pool in Holiday Village Efteling Bosrijk will close.
"We have all worked so hard together to offer our guests a safe day out and to safeguard the continuity of the Efteling theme park. But of course we understand this decision and we will take our responsibility. Only by acting together will we get the coronavirus under control and this is how we as Efteling are doing our bit," the park said in a press release.
