Tivoli Gardens's central location is largely down to the park's age - the second oldest Theme Park in the world opened its doors in August 1843. The then King Christian VIII wanted to distract the Copenhagen citizens from politics and gave the large spot just outside the city walls towards deveopment.
Tivoli's aim to take people away from their daily problems has led to the park having strong oriental influences right from the outset. Asian buildings and rides were constructed the this strong influence continues to be seen today in everything from the grand entrance to the Pantomime Hall and Concert Hall.
There are a multitude of rides dotted around the park suited to all tastes and ages. Don't expect to find the world's largest, fastest or scariest attractions - this park aims to create a more relaxed atmosphere. Having said that, there are two coasters suitable for adrenaline junkies - the 100 year old wooden Rutschebanen laying claim to being the oldest roller coaster in the world and the much more modern Demon with loops aplenty.
