Gröna Lund, Stockholm
Whilst Gröna Lund is smaller than Liseberg in Göteborg and not as green and "logical", it still merits a visit as not many amusement parks can boast such a wonderful sea view! Ride on the "Octopus" swinging its arms above the Baltic Sea or enjoy a few seconds of harbour inlet panorama before the rollercoaster throws you downwards :-))) Gröna Lund also has some decent pop concerts regularly and lots for food and drink.
Haven´t been there, but Grönalund is the amusement park in Stockholm. You get there with this sppecial ferry that is leaving at the harbour in the old town.... The ship itself is an eyecatcher I think!
As all big Scandinavian cities Stockholm has an amusement park of course, it is called Gröna Lund. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to go - but on our tour through Scandinavia we visited Linnanmäki (Helsinki) and Tivoli (Copenhagen) instead!! Maybe next time!
Situated in Gröna Lund is the Spökhuset. It is a haunted house and it is definately the scariest I have ever been in. It is very dark so you hardly see a thing. Real people come scare you from behind, and at some point it feels quite terrifying. This place is not really for chickens, since quite often people come out of the house crying!!
Gröna Lund is the oldest amusementpark in Sweden and opened for the first time in 1883. Every year the park opens in May 1st for 180 days. It is a small park but it is fun. Go into the rollercoaster and visit the Haunted House, which is quite scary!! The best attraction in the park has to be the Fritt Fall or Power Tower. This tower is 80 metres high and has a cabin that goes to the top, and guess what? IT DROPS DOWN FAST. Look at the pic to see how fast we fell down!!
Grona Lund is really fun if you like amusement parks. They have a roller coaster & lots of crazy rides. The Crazy House was one of thee best I've ever been in. We went here on Friday then on Wednesday to finish the rides we didn't get to go on the first time. Yes, we're still kids at heart. You gotta love the guy on the unicycle bonking unsuspecting folks on the head with a blow-up hammer!!
TRAVELING WITH KIDSThe Swedes are good at devising excellent attractions for the whole family, like Gröna Lund Tivoli tivoli.se in Stockholm.
Tivoli Gröna Lund is an amusement park on Djurgården Island. It covers 15 acres and has over 30 attractions. It was founded in 1883 by James Schultheiss.
The Gröna Lund is located on the island Djurgårdens and is the main theme park in the Stockholm Region. It basically is just a permanent fun fair with lots of attractions.
In Djugarden island near the water, there are some attractions (many for children). The stockholm view from the top of some attractions can be nice.
The park is open from May to September.
Don´t miss the thrilling roller-coaster and the cataput. There are many attractions for small kids and plenty of restaurants and cafées.
The Blue Train is a classic horror train. Not as scary as the Spook House, but it does have it's moments. I love the shelf of plates falling off the wall at the end!
The Spokhuset was so much fun. I actually got scared. 'Live ghosts' come out of the shadows to scare you.
