Tivoli in Denmark, the second oldest amusement park in the world, has brought a Nordic theme to its Halloween event.
In Denmark and other Scandinavian countries, harvest festivals are a long-standing tradition. Tivoli is incorporating these harvest festivities into its Halloween celebrations.
Alongside honouring Nordic harvest festival traditions, there are real-life zombies, pumpkins, ghosts, light gores and other spooky shenanigans.
Visitors can get their spooky thrill on The Cemetery and Haunted Scary House attractions, where they will encounter zombies, bloody hospital patients, ghosts and more creepy characters, performed by real-life actors.
Strict Covid-19 health and safety protocol is being followed at Tivoli during the Halloween festival, including “distance stickers” in place throughout the park and disinfectant spray and gel stations. The actors are wearing facemasks at all times, as well as all visitors and staff.
Susanne Mørch Koch, CEO of Tivoli, commented on the safety measures in place: “All summer we’ve been learning how to give our guests a Tivoli the Tivoli-experience as they remember it from before Covid-19 while at the same time making sure everyone is safe. We take this situation very seriously and have gone to great lengths in securing that all of our guests are safe while they have fun in Tivoli”.
The Halloween event with a Nordic twist is taking place from October 9, 2020, until November 1, 2020.
