Tivoli Gardens, Denmark
This unusual amusement park is among the oldest in the world! It has opened its doors to thrill-seeking visitors in 1843 and has been successful ever since.
The park is still operating its original rollercoaster, the “Rutschebanen”, which has an authentic, vintage feel to it. If this isn’t enough for you, “The Demon” or “Dæmonen” is a steel rollercoaster with floorless cars, which offers a unique ride.
