Construction of new Tivoli attraction put on hold

The Copenhagen amusement park does not have the necessary building permits

The construction of Tivoli’s new attraction Fatamorgana, which had been expected to open this summer, has been put on hold because the amusement park lacks the necessary building permits, reports DR.

On January 20, Tivoli received an order from Copenhagen Municipality to stop the construction work because the environmental impact of the new ride has not yet been established.

“We are disappointed about the decision, but we will, of course, respect the municipal directive,” stated Dorthe Weinkouff Barsøe, an assistant director of Tivoli’s communications department.

“The injunction applies only to the construction of the tower, not to the surrounding building work.”

Fatamorgana is a 45-metre tall tower that combines three rides in one and is expected to cost 50 million kroner.
