For a long time, I did not consider Särkänniemi a proper alternative to Linnanmäki. They have improved a lot, and the pricing mistakes are past. The view from tower is phenomenal Finnish lakes and forests view, despite being at the center of a city.

We planned to spend a nice time during the national school autumn vacation, but it didn´t go that well here. It is sad the dolphinarium was closed for ever, which was a huge disappointment for our children. The amusement park itself was closed naturally because of the end of the season, but the indoor activities were partly open. The dolphinarium... More

There were enough rides for little kids and many more for bigger ones. Don't trust the min age/size limit on the rockin tug if you are not joining in and you don't want to end up with a scared child. This park is in walking distance from downtown and is a great place to spend a sunny day.

Had a nice cup of coffee and a korvapusti (cinnamon bun) at the cafe on top of the observation tower with a nice view from the top

The rides were all okay, some better than others, but all in generally good condition. Some were a bit painful to ride (the "flying" rollercoaster bashed my head around a bit), but the place overall is a fun place for family and particularly if the weather is good.

I visited here in september, after the amusement park rides had closed. The tall tower and aquarium were delightful, such great views from the top. The planetarium was geared a bit more for youngsters, but still interesting. The shows vary through the day. The aquarium was interesting local fish, big things, a few lizards, etc. But, the tower is well... More

We went on a damp day, mostly with the aim of going up the veiwing tower as my family are too old for Angry Bird land etc; we went on the rapids ride, which was fun and visited the Sara Hilden art gallery restaurant for coffee and cake. The early afternoon was quiet, but the park got busier about 4pm.

Nice amusement park.... Little bit expansive compared to what is there... Not very good for rainy days. Great roller coasters, really creative... Unfortunately our kids don't like such staff. Angry birds part is really nice.
