Interesting how that varies between country within the same company. Walibi Holland have been ramping up their Halloween adverts quite a bit this week and even just stated 2 hours ago on Facebook: "A lot is cancelled this year but Walibi Holland's Halloween Fright Nights are going ahead."Walibi Belgium has officialy cancelled Halloween 2020 on Facebook today. However, they also announced some HUGE news coming up soon.
Efteling the biggest park in the Netherlands operates the whole year round. Toverland does as well but not with the whole park but mainly its indoor sections. So this decision would still be relevant for theme parks.even though it is very late in the season for most parks already.

Does anyone else think some of the new rules are getting quite vague now?
Apparently from midnight several towns including Blackpool are forbidding visits to other people's homes and saying that public transport is only there for essential trips so I guess tourists shouldn't use the tram again for example, even though there are still scenic illumination tram tours going ahead (I am guessing).
So it is not a full lockdown but sort of half lockdown I guess.
In the end I think many of these measures are there to deter people from leaving their homes in the first place but not suggesting things should close so that government does not have to pay for closures and any consequences of reduced footfall.
I think it's all getting very messy now along with the curfew and rule of 6 everywhere else already.
Regarding the mask thing and as one demo showed I believe they can possibly help to prevent the spread (since it is a droplet infection isn't it?) when someone sneezes or coughs.
True... I didn't see that by now. Efteling doesn't need to announce anything as they are usually just open 365 days a year. The Winter Efteling page is up with dates for this winter. But they seem to play it safes with preventing booking of tickets for after mid november. I think that's the right thing to do. Focus on the next few weeks and then see what will be. The situation can change rather quickly. Especially now as the warm days seem to be over and the flu will join in.Interesting however that Efteling and Toverland have not announced opening times for winter, anything beyond the first week or two in November. They usually do well in advance from what I remember seeing.
Did you miss the bit that says "When to Apply: In severe epidemics or pandemics"?
It also provides "mechanistic plausibility" for further spread prevention - when compared to absolutely no chance if you're not wearing a mask.
Yet ther is no evidence of effectiveness, that's the point. There are downsides to wearing a mask that nobody talks about so if there's so little evidence that they work why run the risk with the potential downsides?
I was surprised to see almost all the twilight slots go so quickly.I bet that's partly to try and pacify all the angry pass holders that haven't been able to get in over the last few months. I suppose it's better than nothing but a cold day in November is no substitute for all those days they couldn't get in I'd imagine!
