Tivoli Gardens opened in 1843 and is the second oldest amusement park in the world. With 4.5 million visitors annually, it is the most popular seasonal theme park in the world, the most visited theme park in Scandinavia and fourth most visited theme park in Europe. It was built to distract the population from political situations at the time; the monarch approved the development of 61,000 square meters (15 acres) of land for this purpose. The theme park served as the inspiration for Disneyland Park in Anaheim. The park is home to Rutsjebanen, one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the world still in operation, as well as Himmelskibet, the world's largest carousel. While not part of the complex's theme park facilities, Europe's longest saltwater aquarium is located here, in the Tivoli Concert Hall.
