Halloween, Christmas, Winter and Summer each have their own uniquely themed season in Tivoli, and during Fall the gardens are redecorated to convey scary (but still cozy) Halloween atmosphere.
Special Hallooween exhibitions and events fill the gardens with the "scaryhouse" as a big hit among young and old. The Halloween program also includes the traditional pumpkin competition and the Monsters Night Out parade. See tivoli's website for more details.

About Tivoli Gardens
Tivoli Gardens is a must for all visitors to the city, and it's location right in the heart of the bustling city makes the more than 175-year old park even more unique for a theme park.
Tivoli Gardens was founded in 1843 and has become a national treasure and an international attraction. Fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen visited many times, as did Walt Disney who even found the inspiration to his own Disney World here.
Part of Tivoli Gardens' secret is that there is something for everyone. The scenery is beautiful with exotic architecture, historic buildings and lush gardens. At night, thousands of coloured lights create a fairy tale atmosphere that is completely unique.
Magical and nostalgic rides
The rides are all designed to match Tivoli's architecture and gardens. Some rides are wonderfully nostalgic. Others will match the expectations of the keenest thrill seekers, e.g. the Vertigo which will turn you upside down at 100 km/h and was voted Europe’s Best Ride in 2014.
Tivoli’s oldest and most popular ride, the wooden Roller Coaster from 1914, is one of only seven roller coasters worldwide which have a brakeman on board every train.
