The never equaled ancestor of all theme parks, it has been a source of pleasure to happy visitors since 1843.

What makes it Great?

Why it doesn't work?

Tivoli was inspired by the so called romantic pleasure gardens of Europe; romantic in the sense that they were landscaped according to the English tradition of forming naturalistic ornaments, as opposed to the French style with its strong, geometric lines. Construction began in May of 1843 and on August 15th Tivoli opened its doors to the public. The season closed on 11th October, when 174,609 visitors had been through TivoliÍs gates.
