One of the best theme parks in Finland! There are good amount of rides for children (100m and above in height) with good options for adults too and many options to eat with. We did not have time to visit the aquarium and the petting zoo but heard they are good too.
Would suggest that you take the unlimited ride pass

Nice place to get some adrenaline rush. For adults there are 3-4 'mild' rides. We had limited time, so we used only one of them: the one that was waterway-based - I can recommend it to anyone, though a change of clothes may be needed if it's colder and the sun is too weak to dry your clothes afterwards. Then there are a few medium and several extreme machines. On top of it there is a small arcade center and areas for children.

Theme park has not only amusement rides categories by height under 100cm, 120cm, 140cm and all above. Kids with height between 1m to 1,2m can go to 21 different equipments either alone or with one adult. Koiramäki is mostly for kids under school ages. With the full theme park access bracelet (price in year 2020 is 47euros/adult) can get up to the towel to enjoy the view of whole city.

We visited Koiramäki and Sarah Hildén museum.

In the aftermath of korona virus, there was quite a few hand disinfectant available throughout the park. Also the day of the visit had to be pre booked if you wanted to come the amusement park side.
The queues were already massive at 11:30 but you can get Koiramäki tickets also from the inside of the gates (not mentioned on their website).

Animals were cute and there were not that many people looking at them which was nice. We had planned that we will eat lunch and then as our toddler dozed off th have a nap, will drive home. However, ALL OF THE RESTAURANTS AND CAFES WERE CLOSED “for now”. Hard to understand why because fast food, if something, is possible to be served individually in this korona virus situation. There was also no mention of this on their website which would have been nice since this affected negatively to the rest of our day with a cranky and tired toddler (there are only so many snacks or smoothies you can have).

So now it only seems to be a way to cut costs since the amount of customers is being cut too. At the same time they said on the radio that Särkänniemi is one of the most expensive parks to visit this summer.
Left a bit of a bad taste in our mouth.

Särkänniemi offers quite a variety of activities. This time we visited Doghill Park, Aquarium and Näsinneula Tower. For small kids (2 and 3-years-old) it's quite expensive as there are quite a lot age/height limitations. Kids loved the Doghill Park and the Aquarium. The Tower offered amazing views over Tampere. Fortunately the parking is free behind the train track aqueduct.

Take your kids with you, cut them lose and take it easy or take the ride...the kids will enjoy it
Great way to spend a day with your family. You can take it easy or challenge your kids
There is for everyone something, from ruff rides to easy ones, or even just enjoy the view from the top of ‘Näsinneula’ observer deck, or go to the planetary
Only small thing to make even better, if you buy the tickets in internet, why do you have to stand in the same ticket-line as everyone else?

No rides open, extremely expensive. Decent parking when no one there. Advertise water rides but only one. I don’t think I would want to spend the money on this ticket prices but probably would if my kids were into it. A big letdown. They should post what they intend to have open that day and adjust ticket prices accordingly.

I don't recommend Särkänniemi to anyone with small kids. You will not get value for the money. We had a bad day there with our 3 year old son, for whom we had to pay 42 euros bracelet based on age, but because of his height 98 cm, he could not access most of the rides even with adult (yes, we paid also 47 for adult bracelet) with him. Prices are insane (what about parking fee 15 euros in addition to everything else?), and with small kids you don't really get anything.

The worst thing is their reclaim handling. We submitted a reclaim, not to demand anything, but to suggest to improve their marketing to focus out of whole family park concept which it clearly isn't. They did not answer until we contacted them by different channels a week later. And their response was in short, that they are right, all this is in terms, conditions and park rules. Oh yes, they are right, we already knew that, but is this the way they suppose to turn negative customer experience to positive which nowadays is the thing that you should do in service business? I don't think so, and they should go and learn how to improve their customer service in generally.

The place has a large variety of rides, fit for all ages.
Works with a wristband (for all rides) or single rides ticket. Entry is free.
Plenty of food options, but as expected - the food is expensive.
The place was a bit more crowded than the other parks we visited in Finland, but nothing to complain about.

What’s nice about Särkänniemi is that all the 2-yr old, the 11 and the 18 had loads of things to try. Waiting times were not impossible, and especially towards the evening the wait was much shorter than in other amusement parks. If anything as a minus; the signs, area maps and instruxtions could be further improved.
