Hey, I'll be going to Copenhagen in August with my parents but we won't be staying for a long time (and I already convinced them to make a trip to Liseberg for one day somehow) so I probably won't have the chance to visit more than one park near the city and so I was wondering if you guys think I should choose tivoli gardens or bakken (also taking into account that I'm more of a coaster guy). It is possible that I might get to go to both but I'd still like to have one as a main option.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

Tivoli.
No. 1 Water Park guy!
The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

I'd really try for both! Tornado at Bakken is definitely worth the trip, there is a part on it that is INSANE! I have been to both parks and I'm thinking if you are a coaster guy, I'd head to Bakken. BUT Tivoli can't be missed either!

Also is the new ride open at the park??

Yes, apologies, I forgot to report on it, it opened several weeks ago.

Thanks, I'd really like to try both but I'm not sure I'll be able to. I really wanted to ride tornado because of how insane it's supposed to be

If you only get to visit one of the parks, I'd say Tivoli. While Bakken has Tornado and other fun rides, it still feels a bit unpolished as a park. Tivoli on the other hand is very finished and looks gorgeous (especially at night!) AND it has a B&M (as if an enthusiast could pass a chance to ride one, right? ;) ) and one of the best flatrides ever: Flying Fury.

I agree with Chris, which is rare. If you're looking for more of a coaster experience, then I think Bakken is just a little bit better. Tivoli is one of my favorite parks in the world, but in terms of coasters it's somewhat lacking.

The more I think about it, you could do both in a day. There's a train station about a mile away from Bakken, and it runs directly to Tivoli (Central Station). Just make sure you hold on to your ticket, right Chris? Start at Bakken in the morning, then head to Tivoli in the late afternoon. Seeing it at night is well worth it.

Thanks for the advice! Maybe I'll be able to do both. From what I understood they work with a sort of wristband system, right? Because I had some trouble clearing that up on Bakken's website (and apparently the entry there is free)

Bakken first. Then, Tivoli until it closes.

Best - Day - Ever. :) IMhO

The new "2" ride looks great, by the way. And if I remember,
isn't there a third ride, underneath it? Or a snack shop.

I forget what. :?r

Chose Bakken as your amusement park and once your parents commit, subtlely let them know how beautiful the gardens are at Tivoli Gardens and how the dining is phenomenal and convince them they need to go there also.
