  1. Hej Tivoli.

    På denne side:
    Står der næsten oppe i toppen: – Tivoli World er lukket permanent.

    Da jeg har besøgt dette tivoli i 1973, samt i 1971 investeret i
    brøderne Olsens Tivoli Costa Del Sol-projekt,
    er jeg interesseret i om det stadig eksistere,
    ller det er rigtigt at det er lukket,
    og tilsyneladende åbnet et nyt Tivoli.

    For de informationer jeg kan se, virker noget forvirrende på mig.

    Med venlig hilsen.

    1. Hej, tak for din kommentar.
      Hvad angår Tivoli-World, er den seneste nyhed fra 2022, at de ønsker at genåbne det, da det er en vigtig attraktion i Benalmádena. Arbejderne holder stadig parken i god stand, men den er stadig lukket for offentligheden efter to år.
      Jeg er glad for, at du har så gode minder om vores land, for jeg var også i denne forlystelsespark i min barndom. Jeg håber, at du vil besøge os igen for at fortsætte med at samle smukke minder. Måske kan du besøge Tivoli igen næste gang.
