  • Nice place to get some adrenaline rush. For adults there are 3-4 'mild' rides. We had limited time, so we used only one of them: the one that was waterway-based - I can recommend it to anyone, though....  more »
  • Theme park has not only amusement rides categories by height under 100cm, 120cm, 140cm and all above. Kids with height between 1m to 1,2m can go to 21 different equipments either alone or with one...  more »

  • Särkänniemi has really developed over the last 10-20 years as an amusement park. Nowadays it is a world-class place with plenty of things to do, covering all ages from toddlers to adults. I was positively surprised that pricing is still very decent. They don't collect entry fees to the area (the rides cost, of course), and the food is good and reasonably priced.
  • I will write my feedback in English just to be sure that also international readers will understand. My feedback about Särkanniemi is simple - don't go there. You will not get value for the money. It might be ok for those who have kids old enough to access the park themselves, but with small kids you will just lose your money. The only thing that counts to access the rides is the height of the person. But the access bracelet is charged by age. And they put your kids under the microscope to get the exact height, no joke. And that tight screening increases queues, and makes you feel humiliated. So in my case, I have 3 year old kid who must have a 42 euros bracelet because of age, but as my kid is 98 cm, he can access only something like total 3 devices even with adult with him. And no word about this in the ticket office, even that they put the kid standing for height measurement. They just happily take your money. Adult bracelet is 47 euros. So I paid total 89 euros, and only thing we got is disappointed crying kid who get more fun in free rides in local Malls. I will never go there again, and suggest everybody else to look fun from somewhere else.
