A short visit to Bakken
The next day after our visit to Tivoli Gardens, Michael and I headed towards Klampenborg to visit the oldest amusement park in the world: Bakken. It was just a short visit, as Michael just had a few rides on his bucket list and was not particulary keen of a visit to this park when he could have spend the morning with his new love Vertigo in the centre of Copenhagen. Nevertheless, both of us got a Turband for unlimited rides.
Since the crowd was manageable, we could do everything without queueing, so that I could manage a lot of re-rides on some of my favorites, as well as give some attractions a second try. Although I have sworn never to ride Tornado again, I ended up joining the queue in order to give Michael a favor. At the end, we didn’t spun that much, so that the insanely wild ride was still manageable. It was basically just fine, even though I still find the layout with all its steep curves a bit too borderline. Yet, if you are prepared for them, it is just fine or if you are Nicolas Mayer (caruso at onride.de) and you like this kind of stuff.
After a few rides on the other roller coasters of the park, especially on the old mighty Rutschebanen – which just ran great –, and a visit to the great Hurlumhej fun house, we headed for something to drink. As the prices at Bakken are overall a bit lower than in Copenhagen, you can have some good old Tuborg Classic for a reasonable price. Also if you want something to eat, Bakken is your place to be. On our way back, we stopped in one of the restaurants, where we had a great meal before heading back to Copenhagen in order to catch the coach back to Hamburg. It was a very nice weekend, although I don’t recommend in using the bus, when it doesn’t head for the ferry. It was a six hour long trip to hell and back.
