Amusement park and Zoo

Amusement park with rides (not super impressive) and a zoo. Zoo is famous for their monkeys, especially chimpanses. All set in nice surroundings!

A bit on the expensive side (ca £18 for an adult), but one of my favourite places to nip into. Love watching the chimpansees and the lemures!

We walked by this park when walking in Dannemansvagen street. There’s entrance fee to enter the park but really worth it. The park is beautiful and a good place for families and children.

Furuviksparken is a zoo/theme park that has improved greatly during the last couple of years, although they have a bit left until the entrance fees and ride ticket prices feel reasonable, given the experience you get from it. I'd say that the park is still mostly suitable for young kids (3-12 years) whom will find the animals and smaller rides... More
