Sitting on the southern shore of Lake Näsijärvi, the Särkänniemi Adventure Park (Särkänniemi Elämyspuisto) is
about a two-hour drive north of Helsinki. The first attractions opened in the late 1960s. The park was originally called Neula's Amusement until 1975. Besides the amusement park, Särkänniemi has an aquarium, planetarium, children's zoo, observation tower and the world's northernmost dolphinarium. And if that isn't enough, it is also the location of the
Sara Hildén Art Museum. The park, which is owned by the city of Tampere, claims to be the most popular amusement area in Finland.

Two coasters have left the park: Pirun Kelkka was a wooden Wild Mouse that ran in 1973 and 1974, and
Korkkiruuvi (Finnish for Corkscrew) was a Vekoma Whirlwind model that operated here from 1987 to 2009.
