  • Hygiene and safety regulations

    Please be considerate of each other and observe the established safety and hygiene regulations during your stay at the park, which apply at Movie Park until further notice, so that you and other guests can enjoy a carefree day.</p> <p>

    In Movie Park it is compulsory to wear a mouth and nose protection. Therefore, one must wear medical masks (e.g. surgical mask, FFP2 &amp; 3 mask or mask of comparable certification. The mask is to be worn at the entrance, in the indoor and outdoor queues, inside the rides and inside all roofed buildings as well as in places where the distance of 1.5 meters cannot be observed. However, visitors can move around the free park area without a mask. Masks are compulsory for all guests over 6 years of age without exception.

    However, face shields or fabric masks are not an alternative to medical mouth and nose protection, as they do not offer the same protection (see RKI for more info). Therefore, they are not sufficient for your visit.

    Due to the obligation to wear mouth and nose protection, even guests with a doctor's certificate cannot be exempted from this regulation. For the protection of all guests, visiting the park without a medical mask is not possible under any circumstances.

    Please additionally and proactively adhere to the generally established distance rule of at least 1.50 metres from other guests. Due to our parking area being large and spacious, there is enough space for all guests to keep the required minimum distance. There is an obvious personal accountability that we encourage you to strictly adhere to. Floor markings also help you with orientation and keeping your distance.

    Please wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. There are numerous facilities available.

    Hand sanitizers will be provided for you by us in attractions, restaurants and stores. However, we also recommend that you bring your own disinfection and hygiene products. If necessary, you can also purchase additional disinfectant in the stores in our park.

    If, during the visit, you have symptoms that are compatible with Covid-19, please avoid contact with other guests and seek medical help. Please wear your medical mouth and nose protection under all circumstances.

    In all cases, please respect the instructions of the park staff and follow all written and verbal warnings. Guests who do not comply with these rules may be removed from the park without refund of the entrance fee. We will make use of our domiciliary rights if necessary for the safety of all guests.

    Due to the requirements and recommendations of the health authorities, we are obliged to record the contact information of our guests. This is done in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations to ensure the privacy of our guests.

    Our disinfection measures are closely coordinated with the health and regulatory authorities and are regularly monitored. All rides are disinfected at regular intervals and far more frequently than officially regulated.

    Please note: Our measures can be further adapted or supplemented should regulatory requirements require this and should they change

  • Attractions and Shows

    Due to the current situation, our Hollywood entertainment cannot take place to the usual extent and there will be restrictions.</p> <p>As part of the official requirements, Movie Park Germany will have to suspend its stunt show "Crazy Cops New York". The Roxy 4-D cinema, Time Riders and The Lost Temple are also closed. The Movie Park parade is currently suspended to avoid crowds. Our street shows will also no longer take place for this reason.

    Meet & Greets with our popular characters from PAW Patrol, SpongeBob and Co. are still possible in compliance with the valid safety precautions and new operational procedures. The corresponding show with our characters (“Let's Party with the Nick Toons”) will not take place. Due to its small footprint, the PAW Patrol command tower cannot be used for meet &amp; greets either and remains closed.

    The pre-shows of the individual attractions are currently not taking place. Visitors should be able to walk straight to the attractions without remaining in the enclosed rooms for a long time. Larger waiting areas will be relocated to the outdoor area of the attractions. Please note that the queues outside may appear to be larger. However, the waiting times are significantly shorter than in regular park operation.

    The re-theming of the “MP Xpress” to “Lucky Luke - The Ride” has been postponed for the time being in favour of the new main attraction “Movie Park Studio Tour”. Therefore, the roller coaster will still be open for you. We ask for your understanding that our priority in these dynamic times has been a new main attraction for all our guests.

    The “Movie Park Studios” with the exciting “Movie Park Studio Tour” have already started their soft opening. So you have the chance to experience the new attraction already. We will then move into regular operation in the next few weeks.

    All other attractions are accessible and will be opened according to safety standards.

    The loading concept for our attractions is based on the current Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of NRW as well as our hygiene and infection control measures, which have been closely coordinated with the responsible authorities.

  • Restaurants

    In order to shorten the waiting times in front of our gastronomic offers and to optimize the operational processes, we would like to ask you that only one person per family stands in line to receive food and drinks.

    The consumption of food and drinks outside is permitted - provided that the necessary distances are observed. Self-service and buffet offers cannot currently be implemented in our restaurants. Our restaurants are still open for you and our on-site staff will be happy to put together dishes for you (e.g. in "Van Helsing’s Club" or in the "Pizza & Pasta" restaurant).

    Further information can be found on our signs on site.
