Located across from Central Station, and in the middle of Copenhagen, Tivoli Gardens is a nice amusement park to visit, if you have kids. And if not, a good way to spend some time, as it is something fun to do with friends.
Rides are not included in the admission. You have to buy separate tickets for that, or get an all-day bracelet for unlimited rides. There are events held there sometimes, but I did not see any there, so I can't really comment that or the rides themselves. But the rides do look like fun to ride on. There are also games and places to eat. The food was okay, and there are restaurants for different budgets in the park.
I spent only a few hours at this place, and thought it was a nice place to walk around. The architecture of the buildings are really nice to look, and a very good place to people-watch, as it seems to be mostly locals. It may not be Disney, but there just seems to be real charm to this place, as the park has been around since 1843.
Overall, I think it is worth visiting, though not a must-see. And worth dropping by for a few hours if you have the Copenhagen Card already, to kill some time, as it is open late, until around midnight. Also, nice place to spend the day with family and/or friends, and get a break from visiting museums.
