Särkänniemi Adventure Park combines six very different experiences that together create a quality destination for all the family!
There are some 34 different rides in Särkänniemi, offering wild whirls, gentle swaying or other fun experiences spiced with sprays of water, for example.
This summer’s newest ride spins its passengers around like a tornado. The ride reaches a height of 15.6m when spinning. The upper part of the ride undergoes a maximum of 12 revolutions per minute with the arms spinning at 4 revolutions per minute. The ride features 24 seats, which spin freely, making each ride feel different. The height restriction for High Voltage is 130cm. The ride was manufactured by Italian company Antonio Zamperla S.p.A.
Last year´s theme area Särkänniemi Doghill is based on the characters created by Finnish author Mauri Kunnas. In Doghill you can relax on the terrace of Café von Guggelböö while the kids explore the castle of Count Drakkula, enjoy funny plays and performances at Paw Theatre, or take part in activities happening on the one hectare site which features 30 separate buildings.
Angry Birds Land which is provided specifically for our smaller visitors features 10 experiences including many rides and activities. For example the Angry Birds Adventure Course rises in the middle of the area, and forms the heart of Angry Birds Land. It includes tunnels, staircases, slides and secret passages in all directions. Can you find the eggs hidden by the green pigs?
In the Aquarium, you can choose your own favourite from over 200 species of fish and aquatic animals that come from seas and lakes all around the world.
