Welcome back everyone! Sadly, this is our final article of the series! I hope you’ve enjoyed travelling around the whole of Scandinavia with me over the past few weeks and I hope I’ve inspired you to get out to some parks and cities you would have never visited before! I also hope you enjoyed taking a trip to Denmark’s very own Legoland with Emma! Today’s article is the one you’ve all been waiting for. We’re heading to one of the most popular and well-visited theme parks in Europe and the most famous in Scandinavia. This is the third oldest amusement park in the world behind Dyrehavsbakken and Wien Prater. That’s right- we’re heading to Tivoli Gardens today and it’s located in the heart of the capital of Denmark: Copenhagen.
Okay, to start off with, a couple of interesting facts about the wonderful city of Copenhagen. Copenhagen is the heart and soul of Denmark and is home to nearly 800,000 residents. It’s a city full of charm with cobbled, narrow pathways dotted with cafes and restaurants and a hustling and bustling city atmosphere. Copenhagen is home to lots of gardens, parks, palaces, statues and churches for tourists to discover and take pictures of. One of the most iconic statues in Copenhagen is “The Little Mermaid”, which is located by the waterfront and tourists can take a boat tour out to see this statue. The city is also home to tourist attractions such as Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Copenhagen is the world’s most bike-friendly city with 675,000 bicycles and just 125,000 cars. You will see bikes everywhere! While we were exploring the city, we stumbled across the Rundetårn, which you can see a photo of on the left. This is a 35 metre lookout tower which was once used by Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. It dates back to 1642 and provides stunning views across the capital. You can even get awesome views and photos of Tivoli Gardens, which we are exploring in this episode.
I’ve talked about what I call “city parks” in previous episodes. In some of the previous instalments we’ve looked at Linnanmäki, Tivoli Friheden and others which I would very much call a “city park” being located in the heart of the city and easily accessible by public transport. Well- you can’t get more city than Tivoli Gardens. Tivoli Gardens is located right in the middle of Copenhagen, with the main city square just around the corner and an abundance of hotels and restaurants located near to the park’s main entrance gateway. The entrance to Tivoli Gardens is just around the corner from the city’s main train station. Upon exiting the train station, the park doesn’t look the most attractive, but the main entrance itself is very grand and impressive in features. Contrary to what you might expect, Tivoli Gardens has one of the smallest park footprints in Europe. Despite its 20 acre size, Tivoli Gardens entices millions of visitors through its gates annually. In 2019, Tivoli Gardens saw over 4.5 million guests come through the gates. To put that into perspective, that’s over 5 times the population of the city. This really emphasises how Tivoli is bringing in tourists from far and wide to see the beautiful gardens and discover the charm of one of the most famous amusement parks in the world.
So, once you get your tickets scanned and enter through the tall entrance archway with Danish flags hanging to either side, you’re in one of the oldest, most famous and most prestigious amusement parks in the world. The first impression you get once you enter is wow. This place is magnificent. It’s charming, it’s quirky, it’s lively, it’s well kept and the plantings and decor around the park are phenomenal. Even just walking down the main entrance street; the lanterns hang splendidly and each lamp post is decorated with a hanging basket full of vibrantly coloured flowers. If you enter the park in the morning, it’s really quite tranquil, but the atmosphere picks up throughout the day and into the night. Tivoli’s urban location makes it really easy to pop in and out of the park as you please. This allows for a lot of flexibility during your trip.
So, a little bit of history about Tivoli Gardens. Tivoli Gardens first opened on 15th August 1843 and was created by Georg Carstensen who envisioned the park as an amusement paradise and a distraction from everyday politics. Tivoli Gardens has become so prominent over the years that the word “Tivoli” is associated and has become synonymous with any amusement park in Scandinavian culture. Tivoli is always looking to evolve and grow without losing its charm or traditions established over the years. Tivoli is well known as one of the inspiration’s for Disneyland California. A lot of people in the community may talk about how Europa Park is “inspired” by Disney- well Disney got inspiration from somewhere too. Georg Carstensen said in 1844 after the park had opened: “Tivoli will never, so to speak, be finished”, and this is a sentiment which was echoed by Walt Disney himself over a century later when Disneyland was born. Another reason the park has become so famous is due to its iconic rollercoaster. Rutschebanen is now over 100 years old and it’s still operating today.
When we were at Tivoli, we were really lucky to have a backstage tour of the Rutschebanen, so you’re about to see some photos you’ve probably never seen before of this iconic attraction, including from the very highest points of the track(picutred below) and inside the workshop. Rutschebanen is also known as Bjergbanen, which translates to “The Mountain Rollercoaster”. This rollercoaster was manufactured over a century ago by a popular company at the time known as L.A. Thompson Scenic Railway Company. The builder of the rollercoaster itself was Valdemar Lebech, who also built other famous and traditional Scandinavian rollercoasters, such as those located at Bakken and Linnanmäki. Rutschebanen is themed to resemble an alpine mountain expedition. You take a trip on the rollercoaster up, down, around and through a rocky and snowy mountain landscape. The rollercoaster itself is filled with surprises, dips and drops and plenty of airtime out of your seat.
Ok, so time for a couple of geek-shots then. Below are a couple of photos that I took from inside the workshop and a spare train which was currently being worked on at the time. Those eager-eyed of you may also notice in the photo on the right there is a track located on the floor which is utilised as a transfer/switch track for putting trains on and taking trains off the circuit. I love how the workshop this rollercoaster is so quirky, and is decorated with vibrant coloured walls and old and traditional posters from Tivoli’s history. Something else you may notice on the train on the right is an extra seat on the train, not a traditional row, however a seat without a seatbelt or a restraint and with a big handle in front of it. This is where the brakeman sits. Rutschebanen isn’t an ordinary wooden rollercoaster- it’s a side friction rollercoaster where a brakeman sits on the train and utilises the handle to activate friction brakes which slow the train down. This makes for a completely unique experience as the rollercoaster doesn’t brake due to magnetic brakes- it’s down to the brakeman to ensure you are going at a safe speed around the track. This makes every ride on Rutschebanen unique and different as you will never go at exactly the same speed around the track. What’s more, depending on the brakeman, some rides may be a bit more wild and faster than others too!
Tivoli Gardens is a park which is proud of its history, culture, tradition and heritage. Due to the park’s small footprint they’ve done so much with the park to utilise the space as much as is physically possible. As Tivoli Gardens has modernised over the past years, there has been the installation of many new attractions, including rollercoasters and thrill rides. Due to the lack of space that Tivoli Gardens has, they opten to opt for “tower” rides rather than rides which take up a lot of space. “Tower” rides, such as drop towers and starflyers, have a small footprint at the base while taking up a lot of space vertically. This is particularly ideal for Tivoli Gardens as it means they can maximise the space they have available. You will also see a lot of attractions, shops and restaurants built on top of one another. Similar to Phantasialand this is done to save and utilise the space available to the maximum possible degree. Below you can see a photo I took from the top of Rutschebanen, which looks out onto the park’s ferris wheel which opened in 1970 and is called Den Blå Safir. Whilst you’re in the area around the ferris wheel it’s also worth looking out for a dark ride called Minen. This is a Mack rides shooting dark ride experience where you explore Tivoli’s mine whilst sitting in a boat- you are warned to be aware of the dragon!
I wanted to talk a little bit more about Rutschebanen itself. We talked about the theme already and how the rollercoaster resembles an alpine expedition through a snowy and rocky mountain landscape. At the top of the mountain, there’s a grassy area which is detailed with mountain cows grazing and relaxing in the grassy and rocky landscape. These little details taken from the top of the rollercoaster are ones I was lucky to get a photo of and ones you unfortunately can’t really appreciate on the rollercoaster itself. Rutschebanen is very much a family attraction, however I also consider it a thrill coaster at the same time filled with dips and drops and airtime hills. There are plenty of out of your seat moments. The structure of Rutschebanen stands at 39.4ft (12.0m) tall but has an elevation over sea level of 42.3ft (12.9m). The rollercoaster itself can reach speeds of up to 37.3mph (60.0km/h) however this is completely dependent on the brakeman. The rollercoaster can also reach hourly throughputs of 3200 when run at maximum capacity which is insane for such an old and traditional ride! On the right you can see a photo overlooking the track and mountainous theming of Rutschebanen. I believe the drop down into the tunnel is actually the steepest on the ride and was actually revised to be made steeper a few years after opening as they wanted to make the rollercoaster more thrilling! Overall, Rutschebanen is one of the most classic attractions in the world and it’s a really thrilling and adventurous experience- and one which can be enjoyed by the whole family too.
After Rutschebanen, it’s time to explore the rest of the park. As you can see in the photo below, keeping in line with the park’s name, Tivoli Gardens is decorated with all kinds of foliage- including loads of different types of trees and flowers. You should also be able to see one of the park’s carousels to the right of the picture- called Dyrekarusellen. This is a classic carousel which dates back to the 1920s and is one of two carousels located in the park. The other carousel, Musikkarusellen, is another traditional carousel which dazzles with lights and music. The park is also home to a variety of other flat rides. There’s a family friendly rollercoaster located in the area around the Dyrekarusellen which is known as Kamelen and is themed to a camel with an Indian circus style theme to match the surrounding area. This is a Zierer Force model which opened in 2019 and replaced the pre-existing Zierer Force model in the park known as Karavanen.
A bit earlier we talked about the fact that Tivoli Gardens is home to a lot of “tower” rides, which provide thrills for guests while not taking up a large footprint. The first of these is a 207 ft (63m) S&S Turbo drop tower known as the Golden Tower. The official name for the drop tower in Danish is Det Gyldne Tårn. This drop tower has been operating since 1999 and looks really impressive. I love the black and gold colour scheme and the themed lanterns which surround the perimeter to the ride. However, I unfortunately feel like this drop tower suffers from looking better than it actually is. At 207ft it stands pretty tall and that’s impressive in itself, however after a slow climb to the top the actual drop down itself is pretty underwhelming. I have to say I prefer the S&S shot towers when comparing models from this company, although I’m not the biggest fan of those either. Unfortunately slightly underwhelming however nonetheless a good thrill ride for the park to have on offer for guests.
We made our way round to a few more rides which you can see in the photos below. The first attraction you might notice is the prominent starflyer style attraction. Running up above the trees is the Mack Rides Mine train rollercoaster which was called Odinexpressen. Since visiting the park, this has actually been replaced with a brand new mine train from Mack rides which is known as Mælkevejen in Danish or “Milky Way” in English. Interestingly, this is the second rollercoaster they have replaced in the past couple of years with a brand new version of a near identical model. This investment in brand new hardware really emphasises the dedication Tivoli Gardens has into the upkeep of their rides. The ride in the foreground is a flat ride themed to an octopus style creature and is a bit like the flying jumbos. I believe this has subsequently also been replaced with a brand new model which has a space theme and is called “The Astronomer”. A Mondial Shake R5 which is called “Tik Tak” has also been added and is marketed as throwing visitors through space and time. The whole area you can see in the photos below are now look completely different with a new astronomy theme, but the updated attractions retain much of the core experience of their predecessors.
Tivoli is home to a lot of garden areas and “retreat” spots where guests can wander around, take in the nature and get away from the crazy atmosphere of the rides and attractions in the park. There’s loads of different retreat spots in the park to discover, including the “Orangeriet” or “Orangery” in English, which is an indoor botanical gardens area. There are lots of other pleasure garden areas to discover including an area with bubbling water fountains and the staple Tivoli aquarium. There’s even a Chinese inspired bamboo forest to explore and a main street area known as “The Alley” which is inspired by an old Danish market town. In the photos to the left and the photo below, you can see the main lake in Tivoli Gardens. This lake has dancing water fountains as a centrepiece and looks across to various landmarks. The first of these landmarks is a giant ship. This grand vessel is home to a restaurant and bar and is one of the many eateries where guests can enjoy a bite to eat or a drink- there’s so many different options to choose from. You should also be able to spot an Asian style pagoda across the lake behind the water fountains. This is known as The Orient and is surrounded by exotic plants and flowers such as palm trees and wild shrieks. Located next to the Orient is the park’s main thrill rollercoaster, Dæmonen. Next to this rollercoaster is a huge oriental themed ride with plane style cars attached to one end called Vertigo. We’re going to take a closer look now as it’s potentially one of the most thrilling rides in the world.
You’ll be pleased to know, this attraction is called Vertigo in both English and Danish, so this is one attraction with confusion around pronouncing its name. I’ll start off by expressing how weird Vertigo is. It’s really low throughput. So I suggest heading their first thing in the morning- although the queue really didn’t get very long when we visited. Vertigo is a “tower” ride manufactured by Technical Park. It stands at 98ft (30m) tall and reaches speeds of up to 60mph (100km/h). Vertigo was designed as an attraction to simulate the feeling of flying as a pilot in a fighter jet. You buckle up into the cockpit of the fighter jet and the experience starts by twisting you upside down and spinning you round sideways at the same time. The main arms then start to rotate, lifting you up to a height of 98ft while twisting you sideways and flipping you upside down. All of this is happening while you are clinging on for dear life. After a few loops of the main arm with similar style moves, the ride then kicks into “Turbo mode”. This is where your fighter jet plane locks back into the original position but the main arms speed up to the maximum of 60mph and tumble you over and over again at breakneck speeds. This is the point where you can barely feel your body or your face. You feel completely weightless as the force is so strong as the plane is travelling at such high speeds. This is probably one of the most thrilling, insane and intense attractions I’ve ever done. A must for all thrill-seekers. A final fun-fact, you used to be able to control the movement of the planes yourself using a joystick however this FEATURE has now been disabled and the ride runs an automatic program.
A big part and the heart and soul of Tivoli Gardens lies with the park’s entertainment offerings. We’ve seen from various other Scandinavian parks throughout the series that entertainment is a big feature of why these parks are so popular. From the concerts and live performances at Gröna Lund and Tivoli Friheden to animal demonstrations and informative talks at Kolmården. Tivoli Gardens is no different in these respects. While the rides themselves are a big driver for crowds, the gardens and the entertainment is the real reason why people come from far and wide to visit the prestigious Tivoli Gardens. In Tivoli, you’ll find a Pantomime theatre which showcases pantomime and ballet performances. You can also discover a concert hall which showcases classical music and opera. The glass hall theatre and Plænen, an open air stage, feature rock, pop and jazz concerts at both of these stages. Tivoli Gardens has seen some big names perform at these entertainment venues, drawing in crowds from far and wide. Some artists who have performed at Tivoli include Kanye West, The Smashing Pumpkins and The Beach Boys. Whilst none of these big names were playing at Tivoli when we visited the park, we were lucky enough to see the Tivoli Youth Guard in formation. This is an ensemble of people aged 8-16 dressed in uniforms reminiscent of the Royal Danish Guard complete with bearskins. Founded and established in 1844, this ensemble gives concerts in the park as well as joining together to form a marching band which parades down through the streets of Tivoli Gardens.
So, that’s our daytime exploration of Tivoli Gardens complete. After exploring Copenhagen for a few hours it was time to head back to Tivoli for the evening. Tivoli Gardens is a completely different park by day and by night. The lights, the ambience, the music, the charm- all of it changes in a subtle but effective way. You haven’t seen Tivoli Gardens if you haven’t explored the park at night time in all its splendour. Thousands and thousands of lights and lanterns decorate the park and light it up in the dark. These glowing lights all around the park really bring a sense of charm and enticement to the park. The lights all over the park create a really soothing and relaxing atmosphere too. This starts at the main entrance to the park, with its golden archways lit up with glowing, warming golden lights and 2 fire torches, one sitting either side of the prestigious Tivoli logo. The entrance to the park looks absolutely phenomenal in the dark and invites the guests in to discover what night time at Tivoli Gardens has to offer.
Once you’re into the heart of the park you feel a sense of charm and magnetism to the park with the way it is lit up in the night time- it really provides a warming feel. During the day, the gardens are a place for tranquility and relaxation with areas of calm and beauty. In the night time, the gardens transform into dazzling light shows with buildings illuminated in an ambient manner in the darkness and fountains lit up with little white glowing spotlights. In the first photo on the left you can see the Tivoli concert hall lined with Danish flags on the roof and and illuminated with warming and glowing golden lights. In front of it, you can see dancing water fountains lit up with white spotlights and green lanterns surrounding the edge of the pond. All the other buildings in Tivoli Gardens are illuminated, mostly with golden, reds and greens. A lot of the buildings also feature turrets, spires or domes on the top of them which are illuminated with bright white glowing lights. My favourite of these buildings, illuminated with red, green, white and gold lights, is the one you can see in the third photo down on the left. This building is located in the Nimb Water Fountain gardens and the building itself contains the Nimb Brasserie which is a restaurant with a relaxed and informal atmosphere, serving classic French cuisine to its guests. At all times of year, Tivoli is beautifully decorated at night with lights and lanterns, however the park is also open during the winter and Christmas season where they go even further and create a winter paradise full of thousands more sparkling lights and plenty of Christmas charm.
I have to say, simply wandering around Tivoli Gardens at night time is entertaining enough without experiencing any rides and attractions. One of my favourite areas at night time is the area surrounding the lake. I think water’s capability to reflect makes the lights even more overwhelming and special. Surrounding the lake itself are little fences, which sit low to the ground but have been lined with red, blue and green lights. These little lights on the fences reflect in the water to give a symmetrical image and these lights over the lake look really stunning and charming in the dark. Another notable point of interest around the lake which looks incredible in the dark is the huge ship. We talked about the ship a little bit earlier, as it’s home to a bar and a restaurant in the surrounding area. At night time warming orange and golden lights illuminate the deck of the ship and give it a grand presence over the lake. On the lower decks of the ship, you can see each individual window and little cabin has been lit up with a white or red glowing light, which provides a sense intrigue as to what’s going on inside the ship.
Walking around to the other side of the lake provides views over to the desert oasis and exotic area of the park known as The Orient. We talked a little bit about this section of the park earlier, however I wanted to talk about it in more detail now as it is possibly one of the most beautiful and stunning areas of the park once darkness falls. Possibly my favourite building at night time in Tivoli Gardens in terms of the way it is lit up and the impression it gives off has to be the oriental pagoda. I absolutely love the way it is decorated with the green, red and golden lights and lights up the darkness with a warming glow. Inside the Japanese style tower itself is the Tårnbaren, which is one of Tivoli’s newest bars, serving craft beers, cocktails and wine. Grab a seat and enjoy magnificent views over the lake. I also love how you can see the reflection of the oriental pagoda and all of its dazzling lights in the lake below. This also holds true for the adjacent Dæmonen rollercoaster which has a dark red track but is lit up with bright pink-purple lights in the darkness.
Dæmonen is definitely the most thrilling rollercoaster in Tivoli Gardens, but not necessarily the most thrilling ride. It has been operating since 2004 and is a B&M floor-less rollercoaster where you navigate through 3 inversions; a vertical loop, an immelmann and a zero-g roll. Dæmonen or “The Demon” has an Asian style theme to fit with the surrounding area including dragon sculptures and hanging Chinese lanterns. The rollercoaster itself is good fun, solid, smooth, and thrilling. After reaching the top of the lift hill and the maximum height of 91.9ft (28.0m), you then navigate a series of twists and helices before plunging down the drop into the vertical loop. You then whizz through the immelmann and the zero-g roll before navigating a couple more helices and it’s back into the brake run. Dæmonen receives criticism as it’s a very short rollercoaster. However, in my opinion it’s compact layout is a perfect fit for Tivoli Gardens. It also looks absolutely stunning in the dark lit up with the pink lights along the track. Since 2017, Dæmonen has also operated with an optional up-charge virtual reality add-on, which in my opinion is completely unnecessary for the rollercoaster.
When walking around the park in the dark and taking in all your surroundings and all the dazzling lights, it’s pretty likely that the tallest attraction in the park will catch your eye. This is known as Stjernetårnet or “The Star Tower” translated into English. This is a Funtime starflyer which stands at 260ft (80m) and provides stunning views across the whole of Copenhagen. Sometimes I actually find star-flyers pretty unnerving due to only being held up by chains and I certainly found this one pretty intimidating. It looks absolutely beautiful with the astronomically themed top piece lit up in the dark, the chassis of the ride itself illuminated in a bright green, and individual seats illuminated with white spotlights. This star-flyer runs a pretty awesome cycle, as it takes you up to the top, back down to the bottom and then all the way up to the top again, providing you with amazing views over the city. It’s located in an area of the park known as Det Muntre Hjørne or “The Merry Corner” in English. This is one of the newer areas in the park and was recently renovated and redesigned to be filled with renaissance inspired Danish houses. The area is themed to astronomy and is decorated with props resembling stars, galaxies and planets and is inspired by the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe.
Det Muntre Hjørne is also home to one of the newer flat rides installed in the park. This is a Zamperla Air Race which is called Aquila. It’s actually been in the park since 2013 but it looks as good as new with it’s modern and slick design. I love the green colour scheme and the globe decoration as the centrepiece and the bright white lights which illuminate each individual arm as they swirl around in the darkness. I also love the way that this Zamperla Air Race is raised up onto a platform which provides layers and height to the attraction making it even more exciting. Aquila is the name of the constellation of the eagle, which Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe observed and discovered in the late 1500s. They have incorporated the discovery of the eagle constellation with each car being fitted with golden eagle wings which fly through the air as the cars swing from side to side and loop upside down. This was the first ever Zamperla Air Race I’d done and the cycle was really good. The loops were pretty controlled and not too fast which meant you didn’t get too dizzy. The cycle also provided plenty of hang time. I this cycle much more than the one on the Zamperla Air Race at Drayton Manor which I found pretty sickly. Underneath Aquila you can find an additional up charge attraction, which is some form of laser maze experience, where you have to race to one side of the room and back to complete the mission whilst not triggering any lasers as you navigate the course- it’s a pretty fun attraction on the whole!
It’s getting late into the night at Tivoli Gardens and it’s almost time to head back to our hotel near to the train station for a good nights rest. However, there’s a really special attraction which I haven’t talked about yet which just can’t be missed on your day at Tivoli. This is the park’s main dark ride and star attraction which is known as Den Flyvende Kuffert or “The Flying Trunk” in English. This dark ride is truly magical- it opened in 1993 and was manufactured by Mack Rides. It was most recently renovated in 2010. “The Flying Trunk” is one of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytales and is about a young man who has a flying trunk carry him to Turkey to visit the Sultan’s daughter. Hans Christian Andersen is a Danish author from the 18th century who is best remembered for his fairytales, including famous ones such as “The Red Shoes” and “The Ugly Duckling”. A ride on The Flying Trunk in Tivoli Gardens takes you on a 7 minute magical journey in a mystical flying treasure chest. The ride takes you through 32 different scenes encompassing different fairytales by Hans Christian Andersen. This attraction is an enchanting experience for the whole family and is the best way to discover all of Andersen’s fairytales. I think it’s awesome that Tivoli Gardens has a dark ride dedicated to this famous Danish author and it’s definitely one of the staple attractions of the park that can’t be missed.
After a final enchanting ride on “The Flying Trunk”, our evening at Tivoli Gardens came to an end and it was time to head back out of the main entrance of the park and back to our hotel near the train station. I have to say that Tivoli Gardens really lived up to the expectations as one of the most magical, charming and prestigious amusement parks in the world. The whole experience feels classy and upmarket and there’s so much to see and do in such a small space. It was awesome to get on one of the oldest rollercoasters in the whole of Europe, Rutschebanen and also to try out one of the most intense flat rides in the world, Vertigo. The park is so well kept and the gardens and atmosphere are truly beautiful around the park. It really comes to life at night when the park is lit up with thousands of twinkling lights. I cannot recommend a visit to Tivoli Gardens more. It’s not necessarily my favourite amusement/theme park in Europe, but it is a “must do” park. It’s a perfect combination with a city trip to Copenhagen or can be tied in with other Danish or Swedish parks via road or public transport. I’d love to get back to Tivoli Gardens in the near future and discover everything that’s changed and even more of the entertainment that they have on offer for guests.
Thanks very much for joining us for our exploration of Tivoli Gardens. I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who’s read this article and everyone who has stayed with me since the beginning of the Scandinavia Series. Unfortunately, that’s the end of the series but there are even more parks in Scandinavia which we hope to check out in the future when it’s possible again. I really recommend a trip out to Scandinavia- whether it’s just to an individual country for a city break or an entire road or inter-rail trip across different countries. Scandinavia has loads of beautiful sights and cities to discover and a lot of amazing and unique amusement parks. It’s also home to some of the oldest rollercoasters in Europe and a lot of heritage and history. If you’re thinking about heading off on a Scandinavian holiday in the future, I’d encourage you to do just that!
