From Saturday smokers will no longer be allowed to smoke while standing in line for a ride or attraction in the large amusement parks in the Netherlands, the Club van Elf, which represents 21 amusement parks, announced, NU.nl reports.

This measure is intended to keep young children away from secondhand smoke.

The parks themselves will choose which measures to take for enforcement. Efteling, for example, is adjusting its no smoking signs and will reprimand people who smoke in the queue. Smoking areas will be designated.

The Dutch association for the 21 major amusement parks in the country, Club van Elf, is getting closer to banning smoking in the queues outside rides. The association plans to make an announcement about it next week, AD reports.

At this stage Kees Klesman of the association does not want to say much about it. "We are working hard on it", he said to AD. "It also requires enforcement and the right information in the parks to inform people on the smoking policy. It should also all be feasible."
