Services and accessibility

Is the entire park accessible to wheelchair users?

Almost the entire park is accessible to wheelchair users. See more information in our accessibility information.

What are the rules for personal carers?

We offer free entry for personal carers. Read more about how it works in our accessibility information.

What are the rules about pushchairs?

While the park is for children, there are some minor exceptions. You cannot bring a pushchair to our theatre performances or restaurants for safety reasons. We therefore have spaces just outside the theatres and restaurants where you can leave pushchairs.

Can I hire a cart?

Yes, carts are available for hire inside the entrance gates for SEK 75/day. These cannot be pre-booked. For safety reasons, you cannot bring carts into the theatre environments. We therefore have spaces just outside the theatres where you can leave carts.

Can I bring my dog?

Yes, dogs are welcome in the park. However, to accommodate allergy sufferers, dogs are not allowed in the buildings or on our outdoor restaurant and café seating areas. Many of our performances involve animals, so we ask visitors with dogs to sit in the upper half of the auditorium. Water bowls are available in several locations around the park.


When and where do the performances take place?

During the summer season, there are about 30 performances every day.

How long are the performances?

Each performance is 20-30 minutes long and when the show is over you can jump in and play in the setting that was a stage just moments ago.

Are any performances translated into other languages?

All the shows in the park are performed in Swedish only. Most of the stories performed are well known by children, so language is rarely a barrier. Most performances also include music, song and dance.

Since all performances are outdoors, what happens if the weather is bad?

In the case of heavy rain or other severe weather, some performances may be postponed until the weather clears, and exceptionally may be cancelled. Should it start raining during a performance, we ask you not to unfold your umbrella as it obscures the view for other visitors. Of course, you can always meet the various characters at the scheduled times. Sometimes, in the case of persistent rain, the characters may move indoors.

Food and drink

Can I bring my own food to the park?

Yes, of course, and there are plenty of picnic spots. We can particularly recommend the Birch Trees, below The Tiny, Tiny Town, and the Picnic Trail.

Are there barbecue areas?

Yes, there are proper barbecue areas outside Wild Rose Valley, in the Birch Trees and at the Mill. Each barbecue area has charcoal and lighter fluid available.

Do you offer vegan and vegetarian food?

Yes, if you’re a vegetarian or vegan, there’s plenty to choose from.
