Dyrehavsbakken, which is Danish for "Deer Park Hill", is an amusement park in Klampenborg municipality, about 6 miles (10 kilometers) North of Copenhagen
Dyrehavsbakken first opened in 1583, and is the world's oldest operating amusement park. When it began, it was initially a natural spring, and source of clean water. Since other sources of water in the area were of poor quality, this attracted large crowds, which in turn attracted entertainers and hawkers - hence the beginning of the modern amusement park.
Today, Dyrehavsbakken is a thriving modern amusement park. The park covers an area of approximately 18 acres (7 hectares) and attracts around 2.5 million (or more) visitors each year.
Visitors to Dyrehavsbakken have access to more than 30 rides, including 6 different rollercoasters. The most famous of the rollercoasters is a wooden rollercoaster called Rutschebanen (Danish for "rollercoaster") which first opened in 1932. As well as the rides, there is a cabaret show (Bakkens Hvile), an animal show (Bakken Animals), a Cirus Revue (held only in Summer months), gaming halls, and many different restaurants and street vendors offering food.
