Amusement park in Helsinki

Linnanmäki

Linnanmäki is Helsinki's old amusement park with over 40 rides, including a wooden coaster and new thrills.

Linnanmäki is a popular landmark in Helsinki, welcoming everyone with its exciting rides and games. Since its opening in 1950, it has been Finland's oldest amusement park and is known for its traditional wooden roller coaster, which continues to excite visitors.

Linnanmäki is more than an amusement park; it's a part of Finnish culture. Located on a hill with views of the city, the park offers over 40 rides for all levels of thrill-seekers. The wooden roller coaster, built in 1951, is the park's standout feature, filled with the sounds of happy riders. It's not just a ride but a historic site, as one of the few remaining wooden coasters in the world.

For those looking for modern excitement, the park includes the newest rides, such as the Taiga – a coaster that sends riders through loops and turns at speeds up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour). Younger guests have their own section, with attractions suited for a less intense experience.

Beyond rides, Linnanmäki lights up at night with colors, games, arcades, and shows. The park is operated by the Children’s Day Foundation, which donates its profits to child welfare.

Open from April to October, Linnanmäki welcomes visitors during the long Finnish summer days and ends the season with fireworks. Entry is free, with tickets or wristbands available for rides. Linnanmäki is a fun destination with a classic charm and a commitment to children's well-being.
