Getting there - Getting to Gröna Lund is a snap. By public transport, I took the T-bana from Mariatorget to T-Centralen and changed to the #47 bus. I combined this trip with a visit to Skansen, so we were able to visit two main attractions in the same day.
Tickets - Admission to Gröna Lund isn’t free, which is likely due to the plethora of dining and entertainment options available throughout the day. My Stockholm Card covered the normal admission fee of 90SEK (60SEK adult/30SEK child). Admission doesn’t allow you to go on any of the rides, however. Because we’re amusement park freaks, we opted for the åkband, a wristband that allows you unlimited rides for 235SEK per person.
Nykelpigan - My son loves roller coasters, so this was the first ride we went on. It’s geared towards the little ones, but he loved it anyway. We were especially pleased that you get to go around three times before you exit the ride.
Clowntrumman - This is a spinning ride themed as some type of musical instrument. I actually get quite dizzy on this kind of ride, which is a special treat for my son, as he tries to spin the capsule that much faster.
Vilda Musen - This is a mouse-style roller coaster which we went on about five times. The line was probably the longest of any we experienced (about 15-20 minutes). However, it was completely worth it. Very thrilling ride!
Veteranbilarna - Antique cars that my son drove a couple of times.
Lustiga Huset - As with roller coasters, fun houses are a family favorite. This was no exception.
Kärlekstunneln - I liken this to a "Tunnel of Love" kind of ride. It is very tame and has a Cupid-with-his-bow-and-arrow theme. I had fun teasing my son about this. What six-year old boy enjoys the topic of love?
Blå Tåget - I tried unsuccessfully several times to get my son on this ride. Admittedly, it did look spooky, what with the depictions of hell. But, I saw so many other families with small children going on that I thought it would be fine. I did take a picture nonetheless.
Food - What trip to Gröna Lund would be complete with food? We ate the requisite junk food and I took advantage of yet another chance to eat ice cream. For dinner, we ate at Krejsy’s, which serves a reasonable buffet dinner.
Overall - Gröna Lund has something for everyone and is the perfect setting for family fun.
