Tivoli Gardens is a famous amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen, Denmark. The park opened on August 15, 1843 and is the second oldest amusement park in the world.

Tivoli is the most popular seasonal theme park in the world, the most visited theme park in Scandinavia and the second most visited in Europe, only behind Disneyland Paris.

The park is best known for its wooden roller coaster, Rutsjebanen. It is one of world's oldest wooden roller coasters that is still operating today. 

Another roller coaster, Dæmonen (The Demon), features an Immelmann loop, a loop, and a Zero-G roll all during the ride time of just one minute and forty six seconds. Dæmonen is situated next to the concert hall.

The world's tallest carousel, The Star Flyer, opened in Tivoli in 2006. Eighty meters high it offers panoramic views of the city.

On 1 May 2009 Tivoli opened the new thrill ride Vertigo, a looping plane ride where the rider pilots the ride, able to control the plane.

Besides the rides, Tivoli Gardens also serve as a venue for various performing arts and as an active part of the cultural scene in Copenhagen.
