Tivoli Gardens new DKK30 million (€4m/$4.5m) thrill ride opened on August 15 as part of the Copenhagen amusement park’s 175th anniversary celebrations. Tik Tak is the first Shake to be installed by the Dutch manufacturer Mondial at a Scandinavian amusement park.
The ride was originally due to be launched in the spring. Instead it got a summer unveiling by Oliver Bjerrehuus and Joachim Button, pictured above, stars of the musical Kærlighed ved første hik (Love at First Hiccups).
The ride comprises 20 twin-seat gondolas, grouped in fours on a giant circular platform. As the platform rotates, so does each cluster of cars. The free-swinging gondolas also rotate forward and backwards, completing several somersaults once they get into full swing. During the ride, passengers experience forces of almost 4G. The intense and unpredictable attraction is available to all Tivoli guests over 1.4 metres in height.
