Bakken is such a fun park with so many unique rides - feeling a little like a stationary carnival.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

It's in the "BONUS!" chapter of the RCITR Blu-Ray.

Rutschebanen with the brake man (One of which is actually Robb!) is on that disc too.

I'm glad to see this park (and the rides) still kick ass! Looks like everyone really enjoyed it :)

We are live tweeting the entire trip! Follow us on Twitter @themeparkreview http://www.twitter.com/themeparkreview

Today the group visited Tivoli Gardens and had a BLAST! Check it out below:

Image
TPR is at Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen today! One of the most beautiful parks in the world!

Image
Starting our visit at Tivoli with some ERT on Daemonen!


Currently in Tivoli having a pizza and drink. Setting of this park is just beautiful.

Image
We were treated to an AMAZING backstage tour of the recently restored, 100-year old Rutchebanen wooden rollercoaster!

Image
Our backstage Rutchebanen tour included to maintenance room. Jakob is an AWESOME tour guide!

Image
Then we got to do something super awesome! We boarded the coaster halfway through the track! HALF CREDIT!!! :)

Image
The restored mountain peaks on Tivoli's Rutchebanen Scenic Railway look amazing!

Image
It was time to ride Rutchebanen for real! This classic roller coaster is 100 years old this year!

Image
Love this classic wood coaster! Kudos to Tivoli for keeping this going for 100 years!

Image
ERT and a backstage tour of Rutchebanen at Tivoli Gardens was a great start to an awesome day!

Image
The Rutchebanen brakemen show us how THEY ride the roller coaster! (Please don't try this at home!)

Image
Elissa, KidTums and Rutchebanen brakeman selfie!

Image
Gotta love Europe! Nice to see other countries aren't as uptight about sex as America is. ;)

Image
I think with all the happy faces you can say that TPR absolutely loved Rutchebanen at Tivoli.

Image
There are VERY few coasters left in the world manually braked by a brakeman.

Image
We think @rctneil is pretty sexy. He's a cool guy & would love to meet a nice girl (we think.) Tweet if interested!

Image
Who thinks KidTums should grow up to be a brake woman?

Image
After our Rutchebanen ERT we all headed over to "Plane on a Stick."

Image
Plane on a Stick aka "Vertigo" is one of the most intense rides ever created! It pulls 5Gs for about 30 seconds!

Image
Plane on a Stick twists and turns in crazy directions and then does high speed loops pulling 5Gs!

Image
Plane on a Stick is not for the weak at heart! (It's for the mentally crazy!!!)

Image
And why is it called Tivoli Gardens? Well, yes, there are gardens! And they are beautiful!

Image
The entire park has such a cool, European feel to it. (And yes, we know that's because it's in Europe!)

Image
And they certainly do love boobs here! Can't fault them for that! ;)

Image
You would never guess waking around this park that it's right in the middle of a big city like Copenhagen.

Image
Looking at Tivoli upside down from Plane on a Stick!

Image
Here's another awesome Plane on a Stick photo and this one features television star @rctneil!!!

Image
Plane on a Stick also did this to us...

Image
Everything about Tivoli Gardens is so picturesque. There is no park in America that looks anything like it.

Image
Tivoli's dark ride tells the stories of Hans Christian Andersen. Yes, including "The Snow Queen." #Frozen

Image
The Tivoli version of The Little Mermaid. (Sans two seashells)

Image
This is the Tivoli version of Anna, Sven, and Kristof! :)

Image
It's Queen Elsa... The Snow Queen!


Look! It's the REAL version of Frozen! Hans Christian Andersen dark ride at Tivoli Gardens.

Image
Garbles is having a small sized ice cream cone! ;)

Image
Taking more rides on Tivoli's Scenic Railway because it's awesome fun!

Image
Jakob sporting a #TPRScandi Tour shirt! He's one of us now!

Image
Just another great day here at Tivoli Gardens!

Image
Tivoli Gardens Brakeman Cam!!!

Image
Awesome POV shot of Tivoli Gardens' Damonen!

Image
Tivoli Gardens as seen from Plane on a Stick!

Image
POV of the Scenic Railway! (Goat also included...)

Image
Tivoli Gardens is famous for it's incredible lightning at night.

Image
Oooooh! It's the lights of Tivoli!!!

Image
Goodnight Tivoli Gardens! We had an absolutely amazing day!

Image
Words cannot describe what a great day we all had at Tivoli Gardens! Thank you for a memorable visit!

Donkeys are my way of life!

This is the TPR trip that I wanted to do more than anything, but just couldn't pull the finances. Now I feel the fool that I didn't at least try to sell my soul to the devil for the cash! :lol:

It's difficult to top Tivoli Gardens when it comes to scenic beauty; it does put most American parks to shame. Great food there, too.

^^ Ditto to add. Tivoli is astoundingly gorgeous. POAS is one of the best flats in the world! Had such a great time here on the TPR '09 trip. Looks like everyone is having an absolutely amazing time. Thanks for the update, Robb!
