Tivoli World is the prominent center for family amusement on the Costa del Sol. It is in the centre of Arroyo de la Miel, Benalmadena and is easy access to by car, train, bus or taxi. However you get there, it’s a visit well worth doing.
Whenever you fancy a day off of the beach, the Tivoli World theme park in Benalmdena is known as a fun family day out. The rides include the common fairground suspects, together with a Big Wheel, rollercoasters, bumper cars and whirligig.
The park is set in luxurious gardens with illuminated fountains and has many free displays, such as a Wild West town with French can-can shows, Country & Western music, gypsy dancing and Spanish ballet. An alfresco house puts on shows in the summertime and a big range of eateries and cafs keep everyone fed and watered for the 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 35 or so rides and attractions, some of which are subject to age restrictions.
The place setting is a wondrous combination of tropic gardens, beautiful plazas, luminous fountains, exiting fair ground rides, theaters, restaurants and much more. There are over 300 rides and attractions. Some of the best Flamenco shows are held here and many important musical artists appear in concert every season. The fab out of door theater can seat up to 3,000 people and the ambience is often electric. For variety and as a direct contrast to the Spanish Flamenco theater, there is also a fabulous Far West corner, where you enter the world of the cowboy can even find out your skills as a bucking bronco rider! Tivoliandia is a new section, which has recently been added to the Park, offering 11 rides for the youngest members of the family. So, from small children to grandparents, Tivoli World has something for everyone.
Artists and groups who regularly appear at the Tivoli Theatre are famous Spanish Singers, Rocia Jurado and Isabel Pantoja, as well at the Moscow Ballet Company.
Other type of shows you can expect, include :.
In the Plaza.
Folklore Dancing, Flamenco Dancing and Classical Flamenco.

Circus, Wild West Show, Stars on Broadway and A night with the Moulin Rouge.

The warm summertime evenings in this part of the world lend themselves to a wholly gratifying family afternoon or evening out, with adequate to do to keep all ages mesmerized and happy for hours. Whether you visit a specific show or music concert, or to let the children have fun on the Tunnel of Fear, Twister or Carrousel – or both, it’s worth checking out the prices. Like in Disney, Tivoli World has its own currency in the form of ‘Tivolinos’. Purchasing a blanket entrance ticket can be less expensive than having to pay single rides and entrance to some shows. (See prices below).
One of the rides not for the children is a thrill-seekers delight, a tower with a free fall of 60 metres! Another warning is to be sure you take some dry clothing for after the log flume if you are visiting in cooler months.
