    This information is a summary only and is very fluid and subject to change.

    We are very excited to welcome back our guests! We pledge to do our utmost to keep our employees and guests safe and healthy, and below are some conditions we set forth.

    We ask that anyone who feels sick, has been in contact with someone who has been sick in the past two weeks, or is experiencing any symptoms of the virus to refrain from visiting our facility at this time.

    We will be following local and state guidelines, including but not limited to:

    Our staff will be required to wear masks indoors and will have them readily available in the event a guest is not maintaining a safe physical distance outdoors.

    Our guests are asked to wear masks when indoors, and be aware of proper physical distancing at all times, even outdoors.

    Our staff will be screened daily upon arrival for symptoms of sickness.

    We will limit our outdoor capacity to allow for proper physical distancing, and upon our discretion, may decide at any time to not allow admittance to additional visitors.

    Each ride and attraction has a custom plan for physical distancing and cleaning routines.

    We have developed a plan for increased cleaning and sanitization of all high-contact touchpoints.

    The indoor seating in our cafe and pub has been reduced by 50%. The outdoor patio and Het Terras outdoor seating areas have been set to allow for proper physical distancing.

    Our credit card processor has greatly increased the dollar level of exceptions for required signatures.

    We have provided additional hand-washing stations and hand-sanitizing stations throughout the park.

    We are opening initially with outdoor attractions only, and although it is outdoors, we will not be performing our Dutch klompen dance.

    The following attractions will be open: swing ride, Ferris wheel, carousel, petting farm, Pumper Cars, Plasma Cars, Pirate Balloon Battle, Climbing Castle, duck race, performances of the Golden Angel street organ, skilopen, old Dutch schoolhouse, Dutch dance lessons, many photo opportunities, and cheese-making demonstration.

    The following attractions will not be open: delftware-making demonstration, wooden shoe carving,museum presentation, weighhouse presentation, cocoa to chocolate demonstration, ‘Say a few Dutch words’ presentation, Dutch sjoelen game, stroopwafel making, mini zip-line, cheese tasting, and ‘Life in a Dutch farmhouse’ presentation. Some of these buildings will be open for a contact-free walk-through visit.

    To limit an additional touchpoint, we ask our guests to buy their tickets online before arriving, which will also save money over the walk-in prices. For the most up-to-date hours, please check our website.

    Additionally, until we can offer a fuller complement of attractions, including the favorite Dutch dance performance, all paying guests will be given a free pass to return again this year.
