A bomb threat was delivered to the waterpark Lalandia in Rødby on Saturday night for the second night in a row

"It is definitely not fun. It's approaching harassment," Lalandia's administrative director, Jan Harrit, told TV2 after he was forced to evacuate his waterpark once again.

"But our guests' safety is the most important, so we called the police and asked the guests to leave," he said.

Harrit said the threat was delivered via a note, just like on Friday, but he did not elaborate on what it said.

Police officers and bomb-sniffing dogs from Sydsjællands og Lolland-Falsters Politi were called back out to Lalandia after the new threat was received on Saturday evening. 

"Just like yesterday, the vacation centre Lalandia in Rødby again today received a bomb threat. The threat came in at 5.35pm and the police were called. Following that, the centre was evacuated and the centre is now sealed off," a police press release read. 

As was the case on Friday evening, all of the guests at Lalandia have been ordered to leave the waterpark and have been sent back to the adjoining holiday cottages. 

Police found no signs of explosions during Friday night's alarm and called an official end to the threat just after 3am on Saturday. 

Harrit told TV2 that he anticipated opening Lalandia as normal on Sunday morning.
