Bakken, located in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen (Denmark), opened in 1583 and is currently the oldest operating amusement park in the world. The park claims to have over 150 attractions, including a wooden roller coaster built-in 1932.
In medieval Europe, most major cities featured what is the origin of the amusement park: the pleasure gardens. These gardens featured live entertainment, fireworks, dancing, games, and some primitive amusement rides. Most closed down during the 1700s, but Bakken is the only one to survive.
The Story goes that in the town a natural spring popped up. What is spring? Spring is when the table of rock below the ground is saturated with water (think of a sponge completely soaked) the ground is so filled with water that the water seeps through the ground. Here is a link that tells you in more details what a spring is. https://study.com/academy/lesson/springs-definition-formation-types.html’
So a spring popped up in this little town near Copenhagen in Denmark. People who need water to live were attracted to the Spring. Soon people and entertainers, dancers, musicians, clowns, people selling things, and even people who created fireworks displays set up their entertainment near the spring. Eventually, this became a place people went to have a good time. This spring was on Royal lands and at first, this place was only for rich people who were friends with the king. But after 1612 the place of amusement became open to everyone. This place still exists in Denmark and is a free amusement park. They still have the same clown Pjerot who has been the clown of the park since 1583 for 437 years.
