Tivoli Gardens amusement park in Copenhagen is to extend its summer season until October 4 as the park’s opening date is delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The postponed opening date is now set for May 1, extended from the original date of April 16.
Lars Liebst, Tivoli Gardens’ CEO, commented on the changes to the park’s 2020 season: ““Like the rest of the world, we are day by day monitoring the Covid-19 crisis and the significance of the pandemic for the safety of our guests and employees. In this context we have now decided to postpone the opening until 1 May. On the other hand, we extend the summer season to 4 October.
“I can hardly bear it, because we have a trimmed amusement park ready to welcome thousands of guests here in April. We hope that Tivoli and others in the amusement industry are among the first to give back to the Danes some of the togetherness they have missed during the crisis. We are ready to open the doors at very short notice,” Liebst continued.
