gl-cotton-candy.jpgHere’s a place where you can entertain yourself for days on end if you like roller coasters, concerts, haunted houses and Ferris wheels or simply are fond of cotton candy, popcorn, hot dogs, the wheel of fortune and the penny arcade. Basically there is something here for people of all ages, from kiddie rides to the take-your-breath-away feeling of the “free fall” tower.

They know what they’re doing at Gröna Lund and they’ve been doing it well since they first opened their gates in 1883. With all that experience, they’ve been careful to build up an amusement park where everyone can feel welcome. Gröna Lund is handicap accessible and the staff always puts safety first. This means that some of the rides have height limitations, for safety’s sake, and they really do stick to their rules; but if you are too short now, there are plenty of other rides without limitations to enjoy.

Gröna Lund opens rather late in the day and has different hours from day to day. It’s a good idea to check their website or call 08-587 50100 before you go to check their hours. You should also know that they are only open between the middle of April until the middle of September every year.
