Enjoy a fun-filled day at Gröna Lund
Visiting Stockholm and looking for an amusement park? Then you don’t need to look any further than Tivoli Gröna Lund. This amusement park opened its doors in 1883 and was named after the small park that was found in the area, meaning “Green Grove”. Located on Djurgården Island it is a relatively small amusement park but features 31 rides, seven of which are roller coasters. It also holds the world’s highest giant drop with a tilt, at a height of 80 meters and a tilt of 15-17 degrees. Gröna Lund is the perfect destination for a fun day for the whole family.
Exciting rides for allGetting to Gröna Lund is easy with public transport from the city center. The park opens its doors to the public from May until September, where visitors can hop on one of the exciting rides or enjoy the scenery and the spectacular view of Stockholm the area offers. It features most of the common attractions found in amusement parks: a tunnel of love, funhouse, bumper cars and merry-go-round. The House of Nightmares opened in 2015, where guests enter an old Victorian mansion and are immersed in the dread world of Dr. Morphio and his hideous experiments.
Three music venuesThe park’s buildings are old residential and commercial structures, dating from the 19th century. The park was actually built around them. Gröna Lund is also home to three concert venues; Stora Scenen, Gröna Lundsteatern and Dansbanan. Here several concerts are held throughout the year, varying from small daily kid’s performances to larger concerts attracting thousands of spectators. Bob Marley’s concert in 1980 had 32,000 attendees and is the current record. In later years Jason Mraz, Nas and others have performed at the park.
After a fun-filled day at the park you can return to Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, Stockholm, and enjoy relaxed dining at the RBG Bar and Grill or grab a light snack in the stylish lobby bar.
