There were zombies roaming around, scaring people, the ambience was changed, new horror theming, horror themed food, etc.
I didn't get to do the specific for this event horror maze, only 2 people were let in at once and the queue was 2 hours long.
The permanent horror maze Linnanmäki has "kammokuja" which usually has you go through with 3d glasses, the walls being painted in uv colours and the uv lights lighting the halls, well this time they had turned all the lights off, added fog, zombie actors and you had to walk through carrying only a lantern for light. It was amazing, atmospheric, scary.
The "Taikasirkus" family circus ride was now just called "Sirkus" and the entrance looked like this:
The inside had a corrupted version of the usual soundtrack with all the clowns being somehow clearly dead yet alive, the audience pictures had either their eyes or mouths crossed out and there were dead dolls scattered across. Live actor clowns would come and shake your car, laugh at you, etc.
The witch train was the usual witch train but there were a few live actors there to spice things up.
The scenic railway had something done to it as well actually, at the end of the ride the train enters a tunnel, the tunnel is filled with fog and red/orange lights to make it look like the tunnel is burning, after that a forest demon of some sort comes out.
The Linnunrata Extra VR Coaster had a special horror VR animation, which was AMAZING. You and everyone else ride in an old antique chair and a sorcerer lifts you up and takes you through a haunted mansion, but demons kill the sorcerer and you fly above a forest, a village, in a cave, etc.
There were some more mentionable things, but this was really quite something and ill be sure to come here again every year for the event!
Linnanmäki has now closed, and the season ended in (now traditional) Carnival of Lights. This year there were even more custom lights, and the event has grown a lot in popularity in the last couple of years! I'm bummed that Kieppi is leaving, but I tried to get as many last rides on it as I could. Linnanmäki closing also means the beginning of off-season for me, so it's time to fire up NoLimits again
Anyway here are some photos I took. This year I bought a DSLR (used Nikon D5100 for those of you interested) and I have to say; it's a nice leap in quality to finally have a DSLR on a tripod
This is what you see upon entering the park
Kirnu was closed (hydraulics don't like low temperatures)
Probably the most photographed ride in Carnival of Lights, and it's no wonder ;)
Artsy stuff made in collaboration with LUX Helsinki
Salama had a classic look this year :)
That spiral tho
Kieppi doing its thang
I'll miss these kinds of photos...
Kingi, my favourite ride
Vuoristorata literally bathed in light
Mustekala (Schwarzkopf Monster)
Let's have some more photos of Kieppi
Just to give it some final honors
Bye bye, I hope your next home will be as good as this was (wherever that will be)!
One of the two new rides for this season: Poppis
(It's a Gosetto Party Dance)
I have to say, RGB LED's do make some beautiful photos!
Final photo to end this photo collage and season. See you next year!
