The Wandering Cows are roller coaster fans. If there’s one near by, you can bet we’ve got a ticket. That’s where I headed when I arrived at Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens. I bought my Multi-Ride ticket and went on the roller coasters to the exclusion of everything else.
My favourite was the The Demon – Dæmonen – a two-loop and lolling roll, head over heels, twisty ride that lasts all of 1 minute 45 seconds. You’ll walk like a drunken sailor for several minutes when you get off, until you gather your wits enough to get in line for another go. And another.
There’s also the Rutschebanen, the oldest running roller coaster in the world. It was built in 1914 and back in the day, it polarized the community, some of whom thought that money should not be spent on such frivolous activity. The ride is not as hairy as The Demon, but it still gets up to speeds of 50km/h, which still means you need to hang on.
I also went on the Odin Express, which is a junior roller coaster. No loops on this one, but it can twist quite wildly so don’t go thinking it’s going to be fairly pedestrian.
I don’t have many pictures because I put my bag in a locker. You can’t have loose things about your body. And I was having too much fun as the early evening turned into night.
