We travelled north of the Copenhagen centre to Klampenberg to visit Bakken at the deer park/deer haven.

Entry is free and it works on a token based system or ride pass wrist bands. Because we had the baby and the toddler we tend to relay who does the rides with the oldest, as he's only three, and tends to get tired halfway through the day we purchased a booklet of tickets for 199 DKK which gives you 40 tickets.
I liked Bakken because it gives you a very comphrensive list of which rides can be ridden with children of which heights with and without parents. It was all very clear. There was no disappointed child, distraught, after waiting for a lengthy time in the line only discover he wasn't tall enough to ride. Thanks!!
My oldest only wants to ride on the bumper cars, most of the other rides scare him, even though he tells me he wants to do them again... pictures are evidence of his level of fear.
So in Bakken Children of all ages can ride bumper cars with their parents, which I love. Of course if he wanted to be by himself he would need to be above 137cm, but when I'm driving my arm is around him the whole way because he likes it to be as rough as possible and giggles the whole way around while I attempt to cause as much mayhem and bumping as possible.
We really enjoyed the gourmet icecream there too. And the Italian restaurant, Al dente, was a lovely surprise with excellent service and food. It was a little oasis of quiet in a busy and hectic place.
We first attended Prego as an option for us to eat during our stay at Bakken, but we had an issue with a waitress there who told my husband that he could be seated, but got annoyed when he sat down somewhere that wasn't being serviced by the staff. The tables were all set, and if she wanted him to sit somewhere specific, she should have seated him properly, instead of grunting at him as she walked past. He would have endured it, but we left because I could tell it had upset him. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant, it felt like we were an irritation to the staff there.

Also, there are many smokers in the park, with smoking being more socially accepted than Australia. It's surprising that people happily puff away right next to young children and babies and don't think twice about sitting next to a baby and lighting up.

This is a nice amusement park for the family, free entrance and more low scale compared to Tivoli in the city.

We were staying on Bellevue beach at Klampenburg so didn't have far to walk to the park. It is well worth a walk around and has a nice old street with a traditional barber and shops. I had a go on Galoppen which is identical to my favourite fairground game in the UK. There are lots of places to eat and its nice to walk in the deer park too. If you are staying nearer Tivoli and have no interest in the beach or deer park then it may not be worth the journey. Entry is free with the Copenhagen card and train travel there is also free.

Take the train or take a car and drive north to the Bakken amusement park. Parking cost, but there is no entrance fee. Each ride is carefully adjusted to the kinds of all ages, making it simple to see who can try what - the parents can relax and let the kinds go bananas if they have a tour pass.

The plethora of restaurants and cafes makes it very easy to eat and drink, though many people also bring their own foodd Perhaps not the biggest amusement park, but definitely woth checking out.

What I personally like is the relaxed, laid back athmosphere.

Bakken is well worth a trip, especially with your children, as most of the rides cater towards children in the 3-12 age bracket. easily reached by train from copenhagen (get off at Klampenborg), there are lots of traditional Danish food options, as well a beautiful park that the amusement park is located in that is excellent for walks through the ancient forest, as well as picnics. In addition, a horse drawn carriage ride around the park is a nice addition as well
