Being the second oldest amusement park in Europe, one cannot be disappointed in this whimsical fascinating place. With a plethora of activities for each age-group, this place is a must visit when in the Scandinavian region. One can easily see movie coming to life here : old couples sitting in the parks enjoying the scenery, teen couples walking hand in hand, children brisking here and there and what not.
We spent an entire day in this beautiful place and were not tired. One of the best things about this place is its timing. It closes a little late in summers offering the visitors to utilize their otherwise wasted time (as shops and malls close early).
Being with a three year old means lot of kiddie rides and I must say we were not disappointed. Our little one enjoyed : The Vintage Cars (on-track cars), The Wood Carousel, The Dragon Boats, The Elf Train, The Fun House, The Little Dragon (swing ride), The Little Pilot, The Music Carousel. We missed the famous Rutschebanen (wooden roller coaster), as well as the the Vertigo. (Note : Running nose and high fever correspond to that face 😉
But the highlight of the day was when he engaged in a duck hunting game and surprised us by winning the best prize (for picking up three ducks in a row which had red mark in the bottom). I was supremely elated but it was short-lived as he chose a colorful lizard as his prize (note : he could have picked any toy from that shop but he picked the most common soft-toy). We did not push him to pick any other toy as it was his choice.But hey- he won !!
The utilities were clean and moderate.Overall a great park specially for the kids. And for adults (if you don’t like the rides and are there just for their kids, you can always go shopping at the famous Illums Bolighus store which offers the exclusive range of Danish and international design. We bought some amazing souvenirs from there.
There is an array of dining options but we chose Joe and the juice as it had amazing juice range which we certainly needed after hustling through so many rides.
