A Sucker for Amusement Parks

I cannot resist a good amusement park. I drag Eddy to any park within 100 miles of us. While visiting Sweden, we decided on a side-trip to Copenhagen. Once we read about Tivoli Gardens, we pretty much had to go there. Tivoli Gardens was opened in 1843 and was the inspiration for my beloved Disney Land/World.

Copenhagen is the home of Hans Christian Anderson, so Tivoli Gardens had not only a replica of the famous Little Mermaid Statue, but also a SWEET Hans Christian Anderson Ride. I made Eddy ride it at least 3 times.

There were lots of other sweet rides.

We ate dinner at a little brewery where Eddy nearly knocked himself silly on a low doorway.

They also had lots of little themed worlds and a parade with little boys in uniform.

Maybe Disney took theme parks to a whole new level, but there's nothing like a day at an old-school Euro amusement park.
