I am copying @mousematt’s logic - since Europa Park is said to be Germany’s WDW, this trip report belongs here
About the park
Europa Park is owned by Mack Rides - WDW fans might know them as the makers of Slinky Dog Dash.
It serves 2 purposes: it is a major theme park with the second largest attendance (6 million visitors in 2019) in Europe, only behind Disneyland Paris. But it is also a showcase of Mack’s technologies, and this is evident in how the park operates.
Located on Germany’s black forest - where Grimm’s fairytales are set. Divided into 18 themed lands - showcasing 15 European countries and 3 magical words. Think of it as EPCOT’s World Showcase with a lot of rides.
Safety protocols there are pretty standard: masks are mandatory whenever you are indoors and at every attraction and queues.
Rides are disinfected all the time, and hand sanitizer is everywhere.
Most indoor dining and shows are closed, and the few that are open are being operated with open windows and physical distancing.
At this point that park has been open for 2 months. Contact tracing is pretty intense in Germany, and so far no outbreak has been traced to an amusement park.
Due to physical distancing, Single Rider is no longer being offered. SR infrastructure has been repurposed to support Virtual Lines, more on that later.
My biggest driver for going now was my belief that things are as good as they will get here while the pandemic lasts. R has been dancing slightly above 1, which means things are slowly getting worse. Summer also means that everything that can be done outside is taking place outside, which helps a lot, but won’t last - and schools will reopen. So this is the lowest risk I would find for a while - everything about this analysis is specific to Germany.
I spent 2 days there, July 27th and 28th, staying off site - my hotel was a 1 minute walk away from the front entrance.
