Can’t wait for the end of October to celebrate Halloween? Now is your chance to enjoy this yearly spooky event with your kids where else but at Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens.
Families are in for tricks and treats at Tivoli this month as Denmark marks its yearly fall break. During this time, Copenhagen’s popular and largest amusement park will be a sight filled with scarecrows, pumpkins and witches to give children a bit of that scary experience. Tivoli’s very own heroes such as Harlequin, Pierrot and Columbine will be there to greet you, too.
All 25 rides in the park will be open and at the entrance area, there is a Harvest Fair where visitors will get acquainted with a variety of things they can do during the autumn season. Three new rides you can experience with your kids until the winter season are the Music Carousel, the Swing Carousel and the Chinese Lantern.
The park opens at 11 a.m. and closes at near midnight for a real Halloween atmosphere. Children who’d like to come in their unique costumes are most welcome and who knows one of your kids will be lucky to be picked as one with the best or wildest costume for the day. One winner is chosen daily at 3 p.m.
Other things you can watch are the Halloween parade which happens every day at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.; the Witches Magic Show which takes place at 2:30 p.m. and at 9 p.m. and the Witches Dance Medley at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. A pumpkin band also performs from the Promenade Pavilion as well as the Halloween Village starting at 5 p.m. and to cap your fun experience, don’t miss the lights show which is a showcase of light, fire, laser lights, smoke, water and music.
The Halloween festivities at Tivoli Gardens have started and will only run until October 19 so don’t wait any longer.
