The best place ever!! I go there every year at the summer, super entertaining and educational! The place has multiple floors, and each floor is huge and filled with activities that explain physics..... more »
Amazing Center. Many sections to go around. Check the timings of the 3D theater. There is an entrance fee. They have lockers and small cafe. There are a lot of interactions with boats, motorcycles and more. There are elevators. Check the tower, the view at the top is wonderful.
Surprisingly good food (burger/hot dog on weekend), massive fun even for small kids. Sadly still running on Finnish propriety, virtual snow mobile is about following a road, rules and traffic, instead of, y'know, doing what a person with a snowmobile wants to do: ride around a huge lake.
