Europa-park in Rust (Baden-Württemberg) is planning to extend the season until November this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The entertainment company expects losses in 2020 due to the limited number of visitors.
“In a pandemic, it is not possible to earn money in full. We expect a loss on the balance sheet in 2020, ”Roland Mack, founder and managing partner of Germany’s largest amusement park, told Welt am Sonntag. This is despite the fact that the company is doing well and has a low level of debt. “However, in the long term, we will not be able to survive in the current situation.”
Due to hygiene rules, the number of visitors is limited to 15,000 per day. On summer days there are usually between 30,000 and 40,000 guests. With the season extended until the end of autumn, there will be some catching up. “And if all goes well, I believe that the new season should open much earlier than usual, in other words, in early March,” said Mac.
