The Roller Coaster

To many people Tivoli is synonymous with the old wooden roller coaster called Rutschebanen (literally The Roller Coaster in Danish). Build in 1914 it's the oldest still in service in the world, so a lot of maintenance is required to keep it rolling. Not the biggest thrill for todays youth nursed on diet of wild rides and adventures, this one's got a lot of soul instead with its creaking and shaking during the ride.
