One of the most popular theme parks in Europe, Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens combines classic amusement park attractions with beautiful landscaping and a huge variety of restaurants. The park's most famous attraction is Rutschebanen (The Roller Coaster), one of few wooden coasters remaining that still requires a brakeman to control its speed. Modern offerings include the 206-feet-tall Golden Tower drop tower and the borderline-insane Vertigo, which sees guests plummeting towards the ground in plane-themed gondolas. Live entertainment is a major part of Tivoli Garden's appeal, with musical acts of almost every type performing regularly.

History: Having first opened in 1843, Tivoli Gardens is the second-oldest amusement park in the world. Originally named Tivoli & Vauxhall in a reference to gardens in Paris and London, it was located on land granted to Georg Carstensen by King Christmas VIII. Rides were a part of its offering from the very beginning, along with live entertainment and eating establishments. While many of its building were destroyed by Nazi sympathisers in 1943, the park still retains a number of historic structures and attractions. In recent years, it has invested in modern thrill rides, including floorless roller coaster Daemonen (The Demon).
