Creepy Carnival is Just Around the Corner…

COMING IN 2017! Creepy Carnival is celebrated during the schools’ autumn break week from October 14th to 21st (the park is not open on Monday October 16th). During Creepy Carnival, the theme park is open from 1 PM to 9 PM daily.

Särkänniemi welcomes everybody to take a thrill ride through the amusement park in October! Come and enjoy the rides and colourful carnival atmosphere of Särkänniemi with a scary twist! Just when you thought our new roller coaster, Hype, was the most frightening thing about Särkänniemi, here comes Creepy Carnival!


Take a Look at Creepy Carnival’s Theme Areas

This colourful event has something for all! During Creepy Carnival, the amusement park is divided into different theme areas. Some are suited for the whole family and contain only mild excitement, friendly skeletons and fun activities such as trick-or-treating and face painting. But be careful not to enter some areas or you might end up face-to-face with an army of zombies and other horrible creatures of the night!

During the Creepy Carnival, entrance to Särkänniemi Theme Park is located at the lower gate, next to one of Särkänniemi’s most iconic rides, Wave Swinger. All the rides operating during Creepy Carnival, weather conditions permitting, are listed below.


Excitement for the Whole Family

Twisted Tivoli

Welcome to Twisted Tivoli, where you can experience a magnificent circus atmosphere with a twist! The whole family will enjoy spectacular performances by acrobats, jugglers and the one-of-a-kind Fire Lady.

Creepy Carnival is the last opportunity to get on board the beautiful yet fierce Wave Swinger. After the carnival week, this old faithful ride will give up the ghost. Are you a fan of the Victorian Era? Särkänniemi’s most popular roller coaster, Tornado, has been transported into the 19th century, and visitors can experience the ride’s steampunkish tones and thrills like never before.

Both families and teenagers enjoy spending time at the Skelenarium area, where you will encounter only mild excitement with cute skeletons and spiders. Skelenarium is a real gamer’s paradise! You can play numerous carnival and arcade games where Lady Luck’s favour and an accurate throwing arm decide the end result. You can test your skills by beating moles to your heart’s content in a game of Whack-a-mole or grab a sure prize in String Pull. Carnival game price is 2 or 3 €/game. You can also buy a Game Package, which includes 6 carnival games for the price of 10 €.

For Thrill-seekers

Zombie Zone

A disastrous nuclear war has wiped out most of humanity. During the war, a new kind of doom’s day weapon, a nerve gas, was accidentally developed. The gas has turned it’s victims into brain-thirsty zombies. Besides getting in contact with the gas, the disease is easily spread through zombie bites. Few survivors, who have not yet been exposed to the deadly disease, live and hide in abandoned buildings, sewers and shelters. Most of the time, the zombies are slow in their moves, but at night, the disease makes them more active and faster…

Apocalypse Särkänniemi? Horrible zombies roam the pavements of Zombie Zone, areas previously known as Highway and Hype Square. At daytime, even scaredy-cats may have the courage to enter family rides, such as Troika and Surge, but at night, the area is a no-go zone for everyone not in the mood for a zombie attack. Which one do you fear the most: the undead or the new roller coaster Hype?

Zombie Zone is not recommended for visitors under the age of 15.

Rides: High Voltage, Hype, Surge, TakeOff, Troika, X
