Tivoli Gardens

So, when I said it’s not as fun in Copenhagen for the kids after days of playing in the snow, that is with the exception of the Tivoli Gardens.

 

The Tivoli is the second oldest amusement park in the world, opened in 1843, and it’s fantastic, especially at night. It’s just 500m from our hotel. 

On Wednesday 30/12 we entered the park at 11:30am and didn’t leave until 9:30pm, that’s 10 hours of rides and food. We bought all day ride passes for all of us and made the most of them.

There are many rides from very tame to fairly extreme, and the kids had a go on pretty much everything their height limits would allow.

  
    
    
    
    
 

 
 

 
  
    
    
    
  
   
 At night, the whole place is lit with thousands of coloured lights. We had dinner in a fantastic Italian Restaurant and then went back for more rides.

  
    
    
    
 

  
 

Skye and I left one of the best rides til last. The Star Flyer, it’s the second highest carosel in the world at 80m (we have been on the highest previously at the Prater in Vienna which is 117m), it was windy up there and so we got blown around a bit, made our stomachs churn a little.

  
 

The Tivoli is really awesome!
