Tivoli is becoming larger
The famous amusement park tivoli has just opened their gates again for the new season and there have also been several improvements taking place. In the Southern end of the park, there is a completely new area, the cheerful corner. This is where both adults and children can enjoy the excitement of three new attractions that are located between some typical houses from the renaissance era.
The astronomer Tycho Brahe has been the inspiration for the new, 1.200 m2 large extension and therefore the theme includes planets, starts and galaxies. The cheerful corner is located in a part of Tivoli that previously has been in the employees’ use and roughly 600m2 are completely new for visitors. Among others, the inspector’s house facing Bernstorffsgade has been remove to make space for the extension as a part of the plan to make Tivoli ready for the upcoming years.
The big news of the year is a breathtaking attraction for adults, daredevils can see the world upside-down while they are opposed to the harsh forces of gravity. The attraction is the only one of its kind in Denmark and can otherwise only be found in a small number of other amusement parks, as for example Coney Island in New York.
Another new attraction is the 8 meter high „drop tower“ for children who get lifted by an airship from Tycho Brahe’s era – the 16th century before they powers are released and they move quickly towards the ground again. The is also a aircraft attraction for the youngest among us, The Small Pilot, where the children themselves can steer the airplane vertically.
The price tag for transforming the cheerful corner has been in the double-digit million kroner range, and quite near the upper end. One of the goals for the project was to show that Tivoli fits visitors in any age group, not just small children, parents and their grandparents.
If you choose to visit Tivoli on a Friday, you can also be part of the famous Friday rock, where both currently popular artists and old classics perform live.
