One of the special attractions for kids at the Costa del Sol is Tivoli theme park in Benalmadena, next to Malaga.
The park celebrates this year its' 40th anniversary, but is although getting older it is really fun to go to. It is a huge park with some 40 rides to enjoy.
The park is set in beautiful gardens with illuminated fountains and has many free shows, such as a Wild West town with French can-can shows, Country & Western music, flamenco and Spanish ballet. An open-air theatre puts on shows during the summer and a large selection of restaurants and cafés keep everyone fed and watered for the whole day.
Tivoli World has its own currency (the Tivolino) which you use to buy rides and entrance to other amusements. The Supertivolino ticket gives you unlimited access to the 37 or so rides and attractions, some of which are subject to age restrictions.
Some attractions you have to pay for like go-karts, boats and the horror passage.
We recommend to take all day to enjoy the park at the fullest.
Now in March the park opens only during the weekends from 11:00 til 19:00 most days.
Entrance fee is 6,95 euros, but it is advisable to buy tivolinos (14 €) so the kids can enjoy free rides.
