The 15 Best Amusement Parks in the World

Dyrehavsbakken-Best Amusement Parks in the World

DYREHAVSBAKKEN, DENMARK

Just ten minutes outside of Copenhagen, Bakken is the oldest amusement park in the world. On Wednesdays if you pay cash, you’ll get a 50% discount on the rides. Disabled visitors can have companions ride for free. So how old would the first amusement park be? Seventy? Eighty? A hundred years old? Bakken first opened in 1583. One of the main reasons for it being here is that a natural spring was discovered. Four hundred years ago clean water was hard to find, so you tended to hold onto it when you did come across it. In particular, the water here was believed to cure illness. Crowds came to get well, and with crowds came entertainers. Hence, an amusement park was born, though by today’s standards it was probably something less than gut-wrenchingly amusing. The Roller Coaster – Bakken’s hallmark, was completed in 1932. Today there are thirty three rides, including Mine Train, Ulven, and TarnGyset.
