I really enjoyed spending time there with my boyfriend and his daughter. We had a lot of fun, visited all the attractions (some more than once). It's as great and even better than described. I would go there again, but probably not more than twice per summer as it gets old quite quickly.
Best place for small and big kids, and for adults also. Pretty good selection of different rides. Old roller-coaster is the best! Only minus is the price of food, everything is really expensive so I recommend to bring your own sandwiches and snacks.
Really nice small amusement park in the heart of Helsinki. Entry is free and you only pay for the rides. There is also several free children's rides and sightseeing tower is also free. Great for just evening walk even if you aren't interested in the rides.
€39.00 for an all day unlimited use wrist band. No too bad compared to other activities in the area.... If you're from the USA you may be familiar with Universal Studios or Disney where the rides have long queues and long waits.... Not the case here.. Lines are typically short and low wait time, and the rides are great. The scary yellow monster (as my son called it) is great! Safest scare you'll ever have! The food selection here is very good.... Is the food gourmet style? No, it's an amusement park! But the variety is excellent and the taste is actually very good for "faster" style food. And the price is OK. Overall we had a great day. This was one of the best days during our 2 weeks in Helsinki. But do yourself a favor and after you're done at the amusement park DO NOT MISS all of the awesome natural beauty that Finland has to offer! Please give me a thumbs up "like" for this review... Thanks!
Not too far from the city centre and easily accessible by tram. Free entry, if rides aren't your thing and a pretty good selection, if they are. Very child friendly with entertainers wandering around during peak periods.
