Tivoli Friheden gets a Christmas makeover from MK Themed Attractions


Fresh from providing the Danish amusement park with a Halloween transformation, MK Themed Attractions has given Tivoli Friheden a makeover for the Christmas season.

This time the theming firm has teamed up with parent company MK Illumination to create a festive fairytale at the park in the city of Aarhus. During the Jul I Friheden season, which began on November 17, the park is filled with lights and themed decorations.


Seasonal spice

“Over the winter months, many amusement parks are transformed with light that brings a magical feeling to individual attractions” says René Hansen, Themed Attraction Manager at MK Themed Attractions. “We wanted to add extra spice to Tivoli Friheden.”

The result is what Hansen describes as, “a true Christmas experience complete with Santa’s sleigh, reindeers, elves and nutcrackers. We have a close collaboration with our parent company, so when an amusement park wants decorative lighting, we can offer them the best products possible. By combining lighting with the right theming, it makes it possible for us to create extraordinary Christmas themed experiences.”


One-stop light and theming shop

“It has been beneficial for us to simply deal with MK Themed Attractions and get both light and theming at the same time for our Christmas season,” says Tivoli Friheden marketing manager, Morten Palm Andersen.

Jul I Friheden continues until December 30. A highlight for many children will be a themed Santa Town filled with animatronic elves preparing Christmas presents. This leads to Santa’s house, where young guests can collect their gifts. Elsewhere, among other displays, there is a barn full of animatronic mice and elves, as well as goofy fibreglass reindeer and chickens.


MK Themed Attractions’ other clients in Europe include Movie Park Germany, Europa-Park and the Plopsa Group, plus more.
