Creepy Carnival returns in fall 2022!
In October you can experience Särkänniemi's rides in gorgeous neon light colors as darkness falls over Tampere. Creepy Carnival returns once again to provide joy and thrills for your autumn holidays. The event has been inspired by exotic carnival culture and travelling evening funfairs.
Creepy Carnival has a large colorful carnival area that thrills the entire family. Two smaller areas focus on the creepier side of the event: Zombie Zone and Circus Hysteria. These areas are not recommended for anyone under the age of 15. Do you dare to enter?
Children under 3 years old can experience the carnival rides (height restrictions apply) and the winter attractions (Aquarium and Näsinneula Observation Tower) free of charge.
Please note! Carnival area has an entrance fee. The Creepy Carnival is an outdoor event so remember to dress accordingly. The carnival area features flickering lights that may induce an epileptic seizure.
Carnival Fun for the Whole Family
Everything is upside down or at least a bit weird in this Creepy Carnival! The colorful Day of the Dead Carnival transports your thoughts to the exotic southern warmth. Experience Särkänniemi rides in their fully illuminated autumn glory, and let the spectacular dancers, the wild rhythms, and mouthwatering carnival treats lead you to an unforgettable autumn holiday.
The colorful family fun carnival area covers Pelitori Games Arcade, the Magic Shore activity and play area, and Angry Birds Land. In these areas you can enjoy the evening without fear of running into any of our creepy monsters.
There are also more frightening areas in Creepy Carnival. Visit Zombie Zone and Circus Hysteria for chills! These areas are not recommended to anyone under the age of 15.
Most of the rides are available in Särkänniemi during the Creepy Carnival. Rapids Ride, Log Ride, Trombi and Tornado are already having their winter rest. Other rides may need to be closed due to cold temperatures or high wind. Rides intended for smaller children will be closed in the evening as the evening programme is intended for youth and adults.
Along with the rides, the glorious Creepy Carnival programme will sweep away visitors of any age. Circus and fire artists, colorful dancers, zombie attacks, and much more will make your day at Särkänniemi unforgettable and fun!
ZOMBIE ZONE (recommended for youth and adults 15 and above)
Zombies crawl the area starting at 3 pm and they get more active as the night arrives. Pay extra attention after 6 pm!
No need to be frightened with an empty stomach! Our restaurants and kiosks serve you a variety of meals from Zombie Burgers to Possessed Fries and delicious Licorice Worms – not forgetting the sweets and treats, of course. Restaurant Riemu, Pizzeria Pelle and X-BRGR will provide you with creepy dishes that will take your breath away. But beware that you don’t end up on a plate yourself!
A variety of theme park games await all those with a spirit for excitement. Classics like String Pull and Duck Pond will reward you every time you play! Remember to test your throwing accuracy with the Hype Game Zombie Edition!
