As a seasonal amusement park, Tivoli always closed its doors at the end of the summer only to reopen in spring. Facing financial difficulties in the early 2000s, however, the park had to come up with alternative ways to improve revenue in order to remain viable.
The solution was to reopen its doors for Halloween as well as the Christmas holidays. The former decision was particularly risky given that Halloween is largely a North American event and has only been growing in Europe in general and Denmark in particular in the last decade or so. Despite this, the decision appears to have been a strategic and commercial success, in part because they pull out all the stops to decorate the park in Halloween themes.
The park is only open for two weeks before closing to begin preparation for the much more elaborate Christmas opening. Although it may seem counter-intuitive, the park often closes before Halloween itself depending on the day of the week it falls on. Having learned from experience, it is advisable to check in advance to make sure it is open.
The following are pictures of some of the same attractions shown in my previous post.
