In Europa-Park Rust, those who were vaccinated were given different bracelets than those who were not. After a shit storm on Facebook, the amusement park is now rowing back.
Rust – The 3G rule has been in effect at Europa-Park since August 16: If you want to have fun in the amusement park, you have to be vaccinated, recovered or tested. So far, so normal – after all, the park follows the new Corona regulation of the state government of Baden-Württemberg. A special rule, however, irritated the visitors: different colored armbands for vaccinated and tested park visitors. This caused heated emotions on social media. Europa-Park is now rowing back.
For three days, the 3G status of a visitor in Europa-Park was recognized at first glance: those who had been vaccinated and those who had recovered received a white ribbon at the entrance, those who were tested received a colored one. Its color varied every day. Europa-Park told the opposite BW24So that the measures imposed by the government can be better implemented and, above all, controlled.
Europa-Park: That is why vaccinated people got different wristbands than unvaccinated people
A rapid corona test is only valid for 24 hours (28 hours for PCR tests). Anyone who wants to spend several days at Europa-Park and the associated hotel unvaccinated must be tested daily. That is why the color of the ribbon changed daily in the unvaccinated. In contrast, the status of those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered does not change. Therefore, her ribbon remained permanently white. This is particularly relevant for hotel guests or restaurant visitors, according to Europa-Park BW24. In this way, you should be spared repeated, time-consuming checks.
From the point of view of the organizers, the procedure may well be comprehensible, but from the point of view of many visitors only to a limited extent. The park therefore received severe criticism on various social media platforms. “What a fascist park […] never again Europa-Park, ”wrote a Facebook user under a recent post from the amusement park. “It’s just a strange development,” said another. Angry fans of the amusement park also reported canceled visits.
Europa-Park tries to appease: So the ribbons are now being distributed
“Do you classify people with differently colored bracelets?” Asked a Facebook user directly to Europa-Park. He received an answer: “We can very well understand your concerns. Purely for organizational reasons, we worked with ribbon colors, some of which changed daily. ”In the meantime, the process with multi-colored wristbands has already been abolished.
Europa-Park also tried to appease the heated minds in numerous other comments. “We take the opinion of our guests to heart and therefore reacted immediately. The colors of the ribbons are only related to the day. This means that all guests have the same color on the same day. Accordingly, the 3G status can no longer be identified by the color, ”the park operators explained on Thursday (August 19).
