Tivoli Friheden 2013
Sky Tower drop
Tivoli Friheden was the final stop of our little tour in the north. We started off at the marvellous holiday resort NOVASOL Ferienhausdorf Schönhagen Strand in Germany, and paid a visit to the Heide Park Resort, Hansa Park, Camping Jelling, Legoland Billund and Djurs Sommerland afterwards. Unfortunately, we can't say 'best comes last' when remembering our tour – fortunately, however, we bought a regular admission ticket instead of the all inclusive wristband.

Those you think of "Tivoli" as an historically valuable city park filled with nostalgic attractions, will know better when entering the one in Friheden. Instead of time-honoured wooden structures and flair, as can be admired at Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen or the one in Bakken, an atmosphere and charm of the 70s can be expected – plastic instead of natural material. It can be claimed that there is no way to get the atmosphere that people might have in mind when thinking of Tivoli – but perhaps there are some great nostalgic attractions that may make up for the lack ...

No trace of nostalgia

Entrance of Tivoli Friheden
… Far from it! The oldest roller coaster at Tivoli Friheden is a Pinfari Cyclone that dates back to 1986 – the remaining, the inverted coaster "Cobra", the spinning coaster "Tyfonen" and the kiddie coaster "Dragen" are built and launched in this century. Another feature that prevent a conducive atmosphere are high glass walls which partly cover the facility for sound protection. The park's most remarkable attraction is the "Sky Tower", a steel monster of 50 metres in height towering the whole park. It drops riders 30 metres into a safety net – of course, only those who agree to pay an extra fee beforehand. We were sad to see that the nice ghost ride "Elses Hotel", we were really looking forward to ride it, was replaced by a 5D-Cinemagic. Well, ...

The remaining attractions are aimed at children and some merely remind of funfair attractions – so, nothing to write home about. The fact that Tivoli Friheden was rather disappointing, is probably due to the sheer excellence of the other amusement parks we visited before. We do not regret that we only spent some evening hours at this park, two or three hours are advisable. However, the gastronomic offers were surprisingly great and comparatively low-priced, but this does not justify the high admission fee of 12 EUR which excludes the rides. Next time we visit Denmark, we will skip Tivoli Friheden and look out for other gems that our Scandinavian neighbour holds.
