Moomins, Santa and Angry Birds – activity parks, Finnish style
How about spending a day with the one and only Santa? Or going on a stroll around magical Moominvalley or an adventure in the Angry Birds world? You could also try a close encounter with a brown bear or a lynx in a wildlife park. Activity and adventure parks are scattered around Finland, and all have something unique to offer.
When you think of amusement parks, you might think of devices that make you twirl and wheel vertically and horizontally. If that is your cup of tea (literally if you want to sit in a teacup and swirl around) – you can head to Helsinki’s Linnanmäki, a classic amusement park which has just the right amount of old and new with a rare wooden, man driven rollercoaster as well as state of the art modern gadgets.
For a very different kind of theme park experience, there are places like the Moomin World or Santa Park. People come from all over the world to meet these Finnish celebs and see how the fairytale places come to life. Summer or winter you will find a suitable adventure just for you.
Full of interesting contrasts, such as the four seasons, the Midnight Sun and winter darkness, urban and rural, East and West.
