- The only amusement park close to central Helsinki, Linnanmäki contains not only plenty of rides, but also games arcades, tombolas, restaurants, bars and the obligatory candyfloss and hotdog stands. The most impressive thing is the Vuoristorata roller—coaster, which in 1996 celebrated its 100th birthday. The amusement park was opened in 1950 by the charity Children's Day and proceeds from the park still go towards child welfare work. You can get to Linnanmäki on trams 3T and 3B, and bus 23 (alight at Alppila). The main part of the amusement park is open only in the summer, normally daily.
