Tivoli Gardens is an amusement park in Copenhagen, Sjælland, Denmark. It is located close to the city centre and between Copenhagen's Central Station and the City Hall. The park was founded by Georg Carstensen (1812-1857), who at that time was a Danish army officer. The park opened on 15 August 1843 as a garden, with paths and a lake.
Today, the park is the most visited tourist attraction in Denmark, with its 4.581.00 annual visitors, as of 2019. The park is known for multiple influences, such as inspiring Walt Disney to create Disneyland. Tivoli is often titled the second-oldest theme park in the world, being behind the world's-oldest theme park Dyrehavsbakken, operating since 1583 and located only 10 kilometres north of Tivoli. Another Tivoli signature are the 85.000 iconic light bulbs in the park, made out of glass in multiple colors. These can be seen on the entrances, the Nimb-Hotel facade and many more buildings throughout the park. Since 2012, Tivoli has been changing old-fashioned light bulbs into LED for economic and environmental reasons. This decision saves the park 3.800.000 DKK ($608.000 USD) annually off the electrical bill.
The company behind the park is Tivoli A/S (shareholders company) under the current General Manager Susanne Mørch Koch (as of September 2020). Tivoli's newest attraction opened in late 2019, called Mælkevejen, a powered coaster by Mack. The layout is the exact same as its predecessor Odins Expressen, which was scrapped to fit Mælkevejen. Only minor changes to the layout was added, such as increasing the height of the track, making it's signature downwards-helix more compact, and smoothing the track out overall.
The park is divided into various themes:
- Det Muntre Hjørne: A Retrofuturic/Steampunk-theme, with its central attraction being Mælkevejen and Himmelskibet.
- Kinesisk-Inspireret Bambusskov: An Asian theme, with its central attraction being Dæmonen, Denmark's only B&M.
- Orientent: An Arabic theme, with its central attraction being Vertigo.
- A german/old amusement park theme, with its central attraction being Rutschebanen.
- A Rasmus Klump (Danish cartoon character) theme, playground, with its central attraction being Fyrtårnet.
The park has an on-site hotel, Nimb Hotel, and another affiliated hotel nearby (Tivoli Hotel).
