It went well and the guides were great too. It rained the whole day which dampened the mood a bit. My kids liked the boat ride and we also visited the aquarium which had lots of fishes. It was a good place to be.

My local park which offers new rides every summer. Free entry. There is something for every age group. Animals, rides, restaurants, sometimes paragliding, benches to sit and enjoy the harbour and lake. Särkänniemi tower offers a sightseeing floor which is worth a visit. There is also a fine dining restaurant but if you have small children, that's not for you.... More

One of the places to visit in Tampere. Fun for all ages. Aquarium was very interesting for kids abd for older too. There are many devices from slow to very fast. I recommend, sometimes not so sunny day is better as there are not so long waiting lines for devices.

Yes, this park is one of the best in Finland. Something for everyone, to the little ones also. Price is quite high, but thats the problem in every amusement park. (Power park maybe better when compairing quality and price)

Been to this place about 6 times now and it still never disappoints. It's a fab little day out, lots of rides and games etc and then also the observation tower which is fab and offers amazing views across the city and then the art gallery and the planetarium is also awesome! Best thing about this place is it isn't... More

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.
