An amusement park is the dream destination for any kid including the whole family. Who can resist those fun games with incredible toys as rewards, the cotton candies with unmatched sweetness, the amazing food and drinks, and finally, the rides! The different rides are the driving force for any visit to the amusement park.
From bumper cars to Ferris wheels and so on, those pulse-raising rides are a dream for any kid to ride on, and there’s one amusement park in particular we can’t get enough of.
We’re talking about none other than the Junibacken, a quasi-themed park that whimsically recreates the fantasy scenes of Astrid Lindgren’s books for children. Little kids can get swept up in enchanting plays about the alphabet, Pippi Longstocking or some of the many other characters created by Astrid Lindgren.
Explore Pippi’s sunshine-yellow house together with the whole family and have a go at lifting her dotty horse Lilla Gubben, just like Pippi herself. And don’t forget to take a ride on the Story Train and to swing by the ice cream kiosk for a well-deserved scoop or two!
Catch the flying Story Train over Stockholm, shrink to the size of a sugar cube and end up at Villekulla cottage, where kids can shout, squeal and dress up like Pippi Longstocking.
The bookshop is a treasure trove of children’s books, as well as a great place to pick up anything from cheeky Karlsson dolls to cute little art cards with storybook themes. An amusement park that provides both recreation and education, it’s Sweden’s trump card in the theme park business and your kid will definitely leave with a smile after spending a day in the pulsating, exciting, fairytale park.
