A very nice place for kids, would be five stars for Swedish speakers. The plays are realistic and if you know Arstrid Lindrgen's stories you don't need to literally understand every word. We only knew Pippi's story but the kids loved the other plays as well, especially the singing parts. It really pays off to buy a family ticket for two days. Highly recommended.

If you at least know who Astrid Lindgren was and have read at least one of her books, this place is great for you. Different books are represented in different parts of park. There are no gadgets, but good atmosphere.

Great theme park of Astrid Lindgrens characters in nice surroundings with good actors . Small but lots of action and many places to eat and sample mainly local dishes.

All buildings and decore are nicely done and well kept. There are plenty of shows, but the program does not cover them all - sometimes you here music start at times when nothing is supposed to be happening. It felt that all money was spent on the actors since there are very few staff besides them. If a kid is missing at Disney a staff member will see it immitiedelty, here it is basicly up to other visitors to keep their eyes open. Paying for the breakfast (moderatly priced) is a good deal since it gives you a head start before other visitors. Staying at the camping (in tent, mobile home or cabin) is very expensive for the value. Very basic service, no branding in the playground, weared down service buildings etc. If you come with a tent, try to get to the camping area as early in the day as possible and mark your space, if you come late, the space will be gone, regardless if you booked in advance or not. The service in the restaurants in the park was great and fast, the price for the food was ok.

The management should visit Disney in Paris or Orlando and learn how to run a proper theme park
