Amusement park at Elkor Plaza is up and running now, but I don't know how long they will stay. Anyway, I don't think it's worth to come for these, there is no roller coaster and also no Ferris wheel this year. If you want some adrenaline, better go to Sigulda (you can do it by train) and visit this park http://www.tarzans.lv/en/home.html And I agree about Lido amusement park, visit it and then you can see whether you need more.

As for seeing city from the air, best way is to go up Pētera Church's tower or television tower.

There is an description of Elkor Plaza park here:

irlaiks.lv/places/…

And more on:

http://www.irlaiks.lv/places/active/

Beside the already recommended Lido I would recommend the big indoor Livu Akvaparks in Jurmala (30 min by train):

http://www.akvaparks.lv/en/

AND btw we still have MANY rollercoasters in Denmark!

Among others the oldest european park TIVOLI

www.tivoli.dk

and you find several in Legoland:

www.legoland.dk

Plus in other parks ;)

The amusement park near Elkor Plaza was temporary. Now there is nothing there.
