The World’s Oldest Amusement Park Will Re-Open For Easter • Bakken

And there are new rides!

Bakken will re-open its gates on March 26 and once again welcome visitors to the park. It’s the world’s oldest amusement park, established in 1583 and still going strong after all those years, surrounded by the beautiful woods of Dyrehaven. There are tons of great rides for both children and adults. Plus, two brand new rides will be opening this Spring! [Photos: @Dyrehavsbakken]

The two new rides are the Time Machine and the Grasshopper. Whilst one will be a more laid-back affair, the other is sure to have your stomach in knots, and it sounds amazing! We’re all crying out for some adrenaline-fueled fun after this long lockdown, but as we emerge into the spring there are still safety precautions that need to be taken in order to stop the spread of Covid-19.


Everyone aged 12 and over will be required to wear a face mask, and everyone aged 15 or over needs to provide a negative Covid-19 test upon entry, which must have been conducted 72 hours or less before arrival. These measures have to be taken to gain entry at any outdoor leisure areas, and places like Copenhagen Zoo have already announced that they will require negative tests and masks.

Things will have to be choreographed in a way that ensures proper hygiene, so Bakken’s perimeter has been fenced in apart from 2 entrances. However, a day out at Bakken is still sure to be a fun one, with amusements for people of all ages opening and ready to greet visitors. Just make sure you visit before September 12 because that’s when the Summer season ends, although we have plenty of time between now and then to let loose at Bakken. Check out the website to read more about safety precautions and those all-important new rides!
