Many Danish families have been coming back to Bakken for generations. Bakken’s longest standing visitor is, however, Pjerrot. The well-known white-faced clown, who visits Bakken every day, has been a hit with the amusement park’s youngest guests for more than 200 years. Still, the main attraction for most is the park’s many fun rides, including an 82-year-old wooden rollercoaster. In total, the park presents a choice of 31 rides for all ages and levels of thrill seekers as well as 78 other attractions such as shooting stalls, gaming arcades and much more.
You will find a wide variety of restaurants, ice cream parlours and fastfood shops. Though the popular, traditional Danish kitchen is still richly represented newer additions include Spanish tapas, fish and chips, noodles and much more. To finish off, guests can indulge in a sugary paradise of ice creams, colourful drinks and everything else needed to make a Danish summer day complete - come rain or sun.
