Hunderfossen is most likely the best family park I’ve ever brought my kids to. The folklore theme, the trolls, the diverse array of activities certainly gave us a full days’ worth of entertainment. I had fond memories of visiting (a substantially smaller version of) the park as a child myself, but I was surprised to find that I enjoyed it just as much this time.
We’ve had rides through the Norwegian folk tales, tried to save a princess from the trolls (and failed..), gone go-carting (top speed 30 km/h), climbed and bathed. We’ve also visited the science center. Even though it seems oddly misplaced amongst all the trolls and fairytales, it was both amusing and enlightening. The 4D-screening of “The Little Prince” was another highlight.
What really strikes me with Hunderfossen compared to other amusement parks is that it seems calmer and quieter. I don’t know why, it certainly isn’t less commercial, but it just don’t have the hectic feel most of these parks usually has.
We even had dinner there, in the troll themed restaurant in the middle of the park. The interior and theme alone was worth the visit, but the food was also surprisingly good. We had a really good moose stew and some nice meatballs, but the calf was pure class: the best meat I’ve tasted for quite a while. The prices were really not bad either, less than 300 NOK for the most expensive main.
I’ll highly recommend a visit to Hunderfossen when you travel with children. We’ve spent 8 hours there today and (actually) look forward to another visit tomorrow.
