Amusement park and Zoo

Amusement park with rides (not super impressive) and a zoo. Zoo is famous for their monkeys, especially chimpanses. All set in nice surroundings!

The animals is ok but the rides are terrible, especially the "Ghost train". Last time we rode it nothing worked! NOT A SINGLE "GHOST"!

A bit on the expensive side (ca £18 for an adult), but one of my favourite places to nip into. Love watching the chimpansees and the lemures!

Located by the sea and with a large poolarea included this zoo and funpark is perfect for the whole family. Has their own trainstation and large parkinglot.

We walked by this park when walking in Dannemansvagen street. There’s entrance fee to enter the park but really worth it. The park is beautiful and a good place for families and children.

Furuviksparken is a zoo/theme park that has improved greatly during the last couple of years, although they have a bit left until the entrance fees and ride ticket prices feel reasonable, given the experience you get from it. I'd say that the park is still mostly suitable for young kids (3-12 years) whom will find the animals and smaller rides... More
