Height Restrictions and Safety
We cannot compromise on the height restrictions for rides. Check your height before joining the queue to avoid disappointment. Safety barriers may restrict access for larger people.
If you are pregnant or have a cardiac or musculo-sceletal disorder, we strongly recommend you do not use the wildest rides. If you suspect that the ride may pose a risk to your health, please do not use it. Safety barriers may restrict access for larger people.
Culture & Well-being Vouchers
Culture and Well-being Vouchers are not accepted as payment in Särkänniemi Theme Park, because according to Finland’s current legislation, amusement parks do not belong in the realm of cultural activities.
Persons with Disabilities in Moving
You can get to the Planetarium via a ramp that is located on the right-hand side of Näsinneula Observation Tower. Access to the Planetarium also by walking stairs from Näsinneula lobby. The Aquarium is located in two floors and there are stairs that lead downstairs (no ramp or lift). You can get to the observation deck of Näsinneula by using the elevators and further up to Restaurant Näsinneula with the help of a chairlift (please contact the staff). There is an unobstructed route to Doghill.
Mobility-impaired customers can find wheelchair access to the following rides either via ramp, exit or separately marked route: Tornado, Log River, Rapids Ride, Troika, Half Pipe, Pavilion Carousel, Candy Carousel and Crazy Bus. You will need a carer or assistant to help you into the ride.
The personal aide of a person, who has a ticket and needs personal aid due to disabilities in moving, eyesight, hearing or developmental stage, may get a helper card from the ticketing. The aide will get to the attractions and rides with the person in need of assistance for free by showing this card. The same rules apply for children with autism or dysphasia. The assisted person must have a Särkänniemi ticket in order for the helper to get this card.
Cameras in Rides
Regular cameras and smartphones are not to be taken on the rides. Särkänniemi does not assume responsibility for belongings lost or broken on the rides. If the customer has a GoPro camera or other similar type of camera that is firmly attached to a helmet or harness, it is possible to ask for a special permit for using this camera in the rides from the supervising ride attendant. You cannot use a normal helmet camera attached to your head only by a strap in rides that go head down e.g. Hype, Tornado, Trombi and High Voltage. It is possible to use a harness camera or a camera that is fastened from under the chin in all rides. The ride attendants can call the supervising ride attendant on location for every ride to check the camera and whether it is fastened safely.
Please contact our staff in case of problematic situations. Our First Aid Station is located in the Pelitori Game Square opposite to Pizzeria Pelle. The skilled first aid staff will help you, and if necessary, you will be directed to further investigation and treatment.
Bringing alcoholic beverages to Särkänniemi is not allowed.
Dogs are allowed to be brought to Särkänniemi if they are on a leash. Please, keep in mind the other amusement park goers when walking your pet. Dogs, except for guide dogs, are not to be taken to restaurants, Aquarium, Planetarium or to Doghill Fairytale Farm.
