• Amusement parks in Copenhagen

    2010-08-26

    Amusement parks are a great way for a family to spend time together while on vacation. Luckily for those in Copenhagen, families have not one but two choices when it comes to riding roller coasters and eating cotton candy.

    Copenhagen is home to the two oldest amusement parks in the world, Bakken and Tivoli Gardens. While the two parks have a bit of a rivalry with each other and their own loyal fans, tourists should take the time to visit both of these treasures while in Denmark.

    Bakken is the older of the two parks and is located slightly outside the main city in a forested area. It tends to be less crowded than Tivoli Gardens. Opened in 1583, Bakken is home to some of the oldest roller coasters in the world, although they have been improved to comply with modern safety standards.

    Tivoli, on the other hand, is located in the center of the city, and thus usually a bit livelier than its older counterpart. Beyond the many rides and attractions, the park is known for its scenic beauty set against an urban backdrop, including the famous lake. Travelers shouldn't leave without experiencing a wooden roller coasters, as these older machines are increasingly being replaced by steel alternatives.
