The best way of celebrating spring and summer for the whole family? Ask a youngster who loves action and excitement, and the answer will most likely be spending a day with fun, rides, and adrenaline in an amusement park. Here is a selection of the most visited ones.
Norway’s largest amusement park Tusenfryd near Oslo has more than 30 fun attractions for all ages, including fast-paced rollercoasters with VR technology, carousels, a log ride, and much more. In between rides, you can play fun games or eat at one of the many restaurants and cafes.
Barnas Fryd and Frydskogen are packed with rides and activities for the little ones, and the water park BadeFryd has a swimming pool, a river, and a huge waterslide.
The main theme of the fairy tale park Hunderfossen Eventyrpark near Lillehammer is trolls and adventures. Meet the enormous Hunderfossen Troll that watches over the Gudbrandsdalen valley, rediscover folk tales in Ivo Caprino’s fairy tale cave, and take a mind-blowing ride with the wildest car in Norwegian history, Il Tempo Extra Gigante. The park has plenty of rides and exciting evening shows, and in the winter you can stay in Scandinavia’s southernmost snow hotel or get married in the ice cathedral.
An adventure park for the whole family, Lilleputthammer is mostly designed for children from one to eight years old. The main attraction is a miniature copy of the main street in Lillehammer as it was in 1930, built to a scale of 1:4. Amongst the charming old buildings, children can feel like giants as they explore fun activities more or less on their own while their parents enjoy the small 1930s cafes, bakeries, and shops.
The splashtacular Bø Sommarland is Scandinavia’s largest water park and is located in picturesque surroundings in Telemark. The park has thrilling water slides and heated pools, fun games, and an hourly tidal wave that will send you flying down the Sommarlandelva river. If you’re tired of the water, there are plenty of things to do on land as well.
