POSTCARDS FROM LINNANMÄKI AMUSEMENT PARK | HELSINKI, FINLAND


My brother spent a week with us here in Helsinki in June so obviously, we did a little trip to the Linnanmäki amusement park. I'm not the kind of a person who is that into amusement parks. Don't get me wrong, I do love the adrenaline and the atmosphere and everything; but it takes me a while to get into the mood after the arrival. So while my brother and J got themselves day tickets, I got myself a ticket to one roller coaster ride.


It was actually really fun. It's been ages since I've been to an amusement park and what comes to Linnanmäki it's incredibly nice that D was able to go to a few rides too. There are few rides for under 100cm tall free of charge and usually, the adult can go to them with their children free of charge as well. So you can imagine what D and I did while J and my brother were running on more extreme rides!


My favourite is the old wooden roller coaster. I could buy a day ticket and go on that all over again for the whole day and then eat some cotton candy in the middle of the process.

What is your favourite thing in amusement parks?

  1. I have love&hate relationship with amusement parks. I love them but I am mostly so scared of everything. :D As I was younger I enjoyed more in all the fun there now.. khm, not really. My fave thing now would be just strolling around the park and taking photos. :D
    So glad that you had a lot of fun. :)

  4. I've never been on a roller coaster, I have a real fear of heights so many of the rides at amusement parks are out for me, sadly. But candy floss is always a given (!) and I do love the buzz and lights experience. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos of what looks like a fab day! x

  12. Sounds like a really fun day out! If my boyfriend and I ever visit Helsinki (which we both really want to), this would definitely be a good option because he loves rides. I'm not sure about that massive rollercoaster in your first photo - eeek! I'd definitely give the wooden one a go though :)

  15. I used to be a lot more fearless when it came to rides at amusement parks -- now it seems like all the roller coaster make my neck too sore the next day! (Such an old lady over here, haha!) I do still love the rides that spin around. :)
