That was a great spook house to go through. I'm so glad we were allowed to walk through it,

as well as riding some of the rides there.

 

That was a happy surprise, for myself.

Some great black light stuff in this spook house!

I love it that year-round walk-through haunts are so common in parks in other countries. Like to see more of them in the U.S.

I've been thinking this for years, wasn't LaRonde supposed to be opening a year round haunt this year that was going to remain open during their Hallwoeen Event?

After Wasalandia we made our way down to our hotel in Tampere, Finland. It is the 2nd largest city in located right dab in the middle of the country. I quite liked it, very beautiful. The next day we hit Sarkaniemmi, a park I have always been looking forward to. It did not disappoint! Tornado is amazing and the park is very cool.

Welcome to Sarkaniemmi!

The group piles into Tornado's queue for our morning ERT session.

This ride is so photogenic and is looking awesome!

DSC_1080.thumb.JPG.0cfec6009c1cf754929221e716aa73a8.JPG

Very Volcanoesque station on this one. I like the industrial feel.

DSC_1088.thumb.JPG.54b2d4b2d645699c052f0fb1e343ae58.JPG

The yellow train warms us up!

DSC_1091.thumb.JPG.068b66a3fd906926b77e4f9ade575631.JPG

And now dayglow train is ready for me!

Happy back seat riders =)

DSC_1097.thumb.JPG.719490a9b2a7f184a305eae98c7fcec8.JPG

This element is OMFG awesome!!!

DSC_1115.thumb.JPG.c41c151f408dae64c87355e705c4e0f8.JPG

Upside down through the station underground? Yes please.

DSC_1116.thumb.JPG.9fa34217fc265d6f5a7e4462bec2bfe2.JPG

I mean how messed up does this look?

DSC_1118.thumb.JPG.6066acd85fd5ae7a9c0a0beb81f36856.JPG

Wooosh!

DSC_1120.thumb.JPG.9c596b1b9d01e6d3acbf41dd1dd9eebf.JPG

One more look.

DSC_1129.thumb.JPG.842de7948fb93c1846d759b7766f3149.JPG

Yellow train needs love, too. We can't all have dayglow.

DSC_1130.thumb.JPG.2f6fd4e2279039ce62d45ec35778c8c2.JPG

Beware of this creep.

DSC_1134.thumb.JPG.2b509874fc310d48304484485bd3e62d.JPG

Next up, we had ERT on Half Pipe!

DSC_1139.thumb.JPG.544b6d72abe7da1ea32e4100ab7130d2.JPG

These are really really fun especially for a group.

DSC_1148.thumb.JPG.4431af743cf76a7880828ea6a3c69aea.JPG

It was fun changing up rider positions to try and create more spinning.

DSC_1159.thumb.JPG.07391d0ab727235571c2d510c3366113.JPG

Catching air!

DSC_1219.thumb.JPG.4ee69147c9ab46516b2040f14babeaa3.JPG

The park opened up, and we have to brave some of the remaining credits.

DSC_1220.thumb.JPG.87034b298180d72c70373147799ce5e6.JPG

Too bad it looks sooo good!

DSC_1221.thumb.JPG.bdb39a736b24bd8dc1a81781547d8290.JPG

The inversions are actually the best part, though.

DSC_1224.thumb.JPG.57ef65c06011a56046c2396bdac4c3e5.JPG

I see the Intamin over there!

DSC_1225.thumb.JPG.9855efcdfa012e6f97c3564092849d78.JPG

Like many parks in Europe, there are many messed up flat rides.

DSC_1226.thumb.JPG.1d4e585e23f954885c684736b1ecf352.JPG

The new addition was down for the count, but I didn't feel like vomiting anyways.

153414131_DSC_0004(2).thumb.JPG.88ed9b936e6a10f350c1142899b824c5.JPG

Prepare for lots of photos of Tornado as we waited before lunch. Perfect heartlining!

1933185436_DSC_0007(2).thumb.JPG.2ddb0904c70c7b55e0ddadc4392f6e07.JPG

Sooo pretty.

DSC_0012.thumb.JPG.14791aefe9f32b71aa4bba7038617760.JPG

Those colors :)

1205367279_DSC_0023(2).thumb.JPG.b8acc9f20ab3b5b346b31fdb34225514.JPG

This is what Volcano should have been.

706902612_DSC_0025(2).thumb.JPG.b1dfd10ff858d20d09ca6dc6dc1bb9a9.JPG

Interesting shot.

484417232_DSC_0030(2).thumb.JPG.984c3e8f70f371e92095acc2d67b6176.JPG

I scarfed down a lot of pizza. It was really good!

1219270375_DSC_0036(2).thumb.JPG.27afadfb32740bb6b33263b37c987e6a.JPG

We headed to the south most point of the park for the Dolphin themed disko!

870972346_DSC_0037(2).thumb.JPG.27eaa1eab3106f1f03eb7811b556434d.JPG

It was cute! KT loved it and the "roller coaster" versions of these are my favorite (I usually skip the U shaped ones)

1292242566_DSC_0040(2).thumb.JPG.8a6744f32dcb3bc7f27e954c7c78a8b9.JPG

A lot of the group took the speed boat for a ride! No thanks, I was staying dry.

441595386_DSC_0050(2).thumb.JPG.c51dae050431a0c2fa8029b8c4276365.JPG

We checked out some more of the cute Angry Birds area.

Ready to send Soupy back to America!

No park visit would be complete without ice cream

599170581_DSC_0063(2).thumb.JPG.61ca6441767f3a39ba1fee9438a176cc.JPG

Guess the flavors!

DSC_1231.thumb.JPG.ad8c7221a1d8889d4e88351471a921bd.JPG

The big playground was awesome.

DSC_1234.thumb.JPG.247d7d61a3ab0982d7e8ec531b63ad0b.JPG

KT definitely approves!

DSC_1236.thumb.JPG.204d62420cd899ddf03b3be772f6ca4e.JPG

I don't know what the hell this is.

DSC_1240.thumb.JPG.a39ccdd8ac55846a14b47f6b972555a6.JPG

Another credit! I believe it is the newest one.

DSC_1244.thumb.JPG.9fe7fdfd3144844cdfee5f7c090620b5.JPG

I'm not a fan of the riding position.

DSC_1262.thumb.JPG.c4166b01cb9e27ace74c0ee1f50c73cc.JPG

And I don't really see the need for this type of ride in a park. But that's just me!

DSC_1265.thumb.JPG.ae8af142f2c31ece2feb2323c65b2821.JPG

A few of us braved the log flume. It was cool with a lot of little drops and speed throughout!

DSC_1287.thumb.JPG.6eeb7a0ac6ce9e68cbc316073cc0b72a.JPG

Are you tired of seeing this?

DSC_1290.thumb.JPG.041b7191890d9077941b6b2ebecc2e90.JPG

That color is not photo shopped!

DSC_1293.thumb.JPG.edcfd49fccdeeb4ce65c5ae8d7e59ac5.JPG

Heartlines.

Overview.

1130246716_DSC_0074(2).thumb.JPG.eb5647bdfba793e7b72e47aff5e9e14a.JPG

Threading the loop!

1919604934_DSC_0078(2).thumb.JPG.0d6f76dee7d9077ee5d206d74db89aba.JPG

The first drop is really funky.

1897511938_DSC_0085(2).thumb.JPG.966704cb2dea354b2642d90ed4b9078f.JPG

I like funky.

249708821_DSC_0086(2).thumb.JPG.78eed25585347fd974a04cddabf27893.JPG

Beautiful.

1281285337_DSC_0091(2).thumb.JPG.5bfa1084b54df53510835f82f1f4719e.JPG

I promise I'm almost done...

638978029_DSC_0096(2).thumb.JPG.91dfad9dfe74c8895910055e0515edf5.JPG

That shaping!

1394027706_DSC_0097(2).thumb.JPG.3f774b453cdfbd86c9a8f9149ded6a61.JPG

We also checked out the indoor dolphin show.

1860110482_DSC_0107(2).thumb.JPG.04feefb506ccb180c86e42706431432c.JPG

It turned out to be really sensual with the trainers. Usually you have to pay for this type of entertainment.

1206566641_DSC_0108(2).thumb.JPG.febac2184115e3e421e1ff4a5d8d48db.JPG

They did do some high flyin' tricks, though!

2053200868_DSC_0110(2).thumb.JPG.09814d7d4fe13e9dad47a0e093975265.JPG

The park also had a large "farm animal" area to walk around.

179032360_DSC_0112(2).thumb.JPG.61ce70bd114d625651275a831cb3f8e3.JPG

Group nonsense heading up the observation tower.

This would be Tampere!

Tornado layout

The north side of the park...

1524551842_DSC_0144(2).thumb.JPG.ec37027643adebf97fc7ba200365b62b.JPG

Angry birds land!

1694843909_DSC_0145(2).thumb.JPG.34fc6a6eb92125edf1464e4c52f8a667.JPG

...and finally the other side of the park!

2116358107_DSC_0154(2).thumb.JPG.95ef799838273ce8a3acf472c1c1d2c7.JPG

Goodbye sir Tornado.

Now get out, says the angry fish. FINAL update from Linnanmaki soon!

Awesome pics from Särkänniemi! It's always interesting to see the finnish parks through someone else's camera and hear what they think. I'm looking forward to the last update from my home park Linnanmäki, especially your stories from Kirnu (the ZacSpin) as I heard you had some hilarious moments with the balancing! I was working at the Moser drop tower Kingi and it was fun to see some of the faces from this forum!

Thanks everyone. This park has really grown on me as I think about it - I quite like it a lot for what it is. I'll work on getting the final Linnanmaki update ready soon so I can finish an entire TPR trip PTR for once!!!

 

Dayglow definitely provided for some amazing pictures.

Great pics.

I've never tried this Tornado, only the one in Madrid and while it was fun it was nothing special (and a little rough sometimes). This one appears to have a more interesting layout, though. For those who've ridden both, how do they compare?

^If you ever have the chance to visit this part of the world, go! The countries are all great places to visit, and they're full of wonderful parks.

Also I found everyone was so polite there which made it such a relaxed place to be.

I was surprised with how much I liked Finland. I can't decide if it, Sweden, or Denmark was my favorite country because they were all so awesome! +1 for the cool people also.

 

I will post Linnanmaki tomorrow so I can Finnish this trip report
