Finland's Most Relaxed Amusement Park
You can find Finland’s most relaxed amusement park right here in Kouvola.
The amusement park is situated at the top of a naturally beautiful bridge surrounded by pine forests at a height of 100 m above sea level. Starflyer takes its passengers up another 72 m. If you keep your eyes open, you can see for miles and the views are amazing at a speed of 70 km/h.
Tykkimäki is also known for the fact that, even on the busiest summer days, you don’t have to queue much. The park also has several rides whose safety restrictions allow children just 90 cm tall to try.
Tykkimäki is also a zoo
In addition to fun rides and games, Tykkimäki is also a zoo! It has hens and cocks, miniature pigs, rabbits, sheep and lambs, goats and kids and, just as in previous summers, ponies and a donkey that can be ridden.
For the last 16 years consecutively, the animals and their owners have been coming from the Hemböle Animal Farm. They are used to people and love to be stroked and petted.
Therefore, at the Animal Farm there are no rules forbidding visitors to touch the animals. Instead, there is a sign that says: ”You may climb over the fence to groom the sheep.” Or: ”You may feed the animals.” With regard to the miniature pigs, there is, however, an instruction that the pigs should not be patted but stroked.
In addition to the amusement park, don't forget to have a splash at Aquapark. On a rainy day, you can always head to Actionpark and after having fun you can take it easy in one of the cottages in Tykkimäki Camping.
