When we entered Tivoli, I saw this little guy holding up the handrail on the stairs:
We walked down the stairs.
A little ways down the path, I saw this theater:
“Oh yeah!” I told Chris. “We are going to want to see their performances..They have pantomimes!”
We determined to check out when they would be showing.
But first we took a tour.
Here is one of their signature rides:
See the question was, do we buy the bracelet that let us ride on all the rides for one price? This required some looking around.
They had bumper cars:
There was a roller coaster thingy:
The ODIN EXPRESS
how cool is that?
Well, after we walked all around, we decided to go for the bracelets.
But we also noticed the gardens:
Pretty benches too, with very tame looking gryphon monster:
Also a tame Lion:
I’ve already said, I like my monsters fierce.
This was a ticket booth:
We got the bracelets, but then I wanted an ice cream:
They also had a lot of carny-type games. This was the view of that alley:
There were also a lot of restaurants:
This ride I called Mohammed’s hammer:
we chose not to ride it. Didn’t want to be hammered.
THey had a pirate ship:
It was a restaurant.
We rode on this one ride:
It was called the traveling suitcase. It was full of fairytale references.
This was the fairytale of the swineherd:
Here is the evil snow queen:
and everyone’s favorite that needs no introduction:
Look, Ma! No seashells!
We rode the ferris wheel too, and had a nice view:
The gardens really were pretty:
It was getting time to see the pantomime. We made our way back. On the way, we saw this band:
They were playing Pomp and Circumstance
“There is no way a band could play that in America and not be ironic.” Chris was sure of this.
Their little stage reminded me of the old hollywood bowl.
But then we made our way to the theatre:
I didn’t see that peacock last time.
We got a good seat.
