Park News - (9/23/21) In late July a documentary video showcasing the renovation of the Colossos coaster at Heide Park was posted to YouTube. The video is in English, so check it out below.
(4/25/21) Germany’s Heide Park has now been granted permission by an administrative court ruling that took place on April 20, 2021. From what I can tell from the online translation of the this article, the decision will give Heide Park permission to reopen while maintaining compliance with strict new hygiene levels to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Previously the park was being kept closed as part of a broad closure order as part of the “Lower Saxony Corona Ordinance”. In addition to heightened cleaning levels, Heide Park will be able to open at 50 capacity with mandatory face masks, and what appears to be a plan for COVID testing on-site. It seems a COVID-19 test center was opened at the park not long ago and will remain, as it sounds like visitors and employees will have to get a negative test result each day. According to this article the park is now working on putting their reopening plan into effect and is expected to announce their opening date in the near future. A quick note, the permission to reopen is only for the theme park itself, and they are not able to reopen any resorts at this time for overnight stays.
