A fairground operator in Uden lost four trucks to a fire around 4:30 a.m. on Friday. His fairground attraction - Encounter - was completely destroyed. The police believe arson was involved, Omroep Brabant reports.

The fire department found two bottles and a jerry can containing a flammable liquid near where the trucks were parked on Boekelsedijk. 

"Everything is ruined, everything is ruined", the operator of Encounter - a kind of modern haunted house - kept repeating to an Omroep Brabant reporter on Friday morning. He can not believe what happened.

The Dutch theme parks and zoos are doing very well, especially thanks to foreign tourists, according to a report by ABN Amro economists. Tourists are attracted to the quality of the theme parks, easily available accommodation and the relatively low entrance prices, the researchers conclude, AD reports.

The researchers predict a 3 percent increase in the number of visitors this year, should the current weather predictions hold, and a 2.5 percent increase next year. Foreign tourists, especially from Germany and Belgium, account for a significant part of this growth.
