A fun park with a Zoo and a tivoli, this season there will be a new enormous rollercoaster. Once a week all summer there are conserts with great artist for example Alice Cooper. Best of all is the nice setting just by the Baltic Sea.

Every season since I live in Sweden I buy the furuvik season pass for the hole family. We live very close to the park so we try to go during the week and if there are any concerts we like we go also in the weekends. What I think is that the restaurants don't offer many nice choices but there... More

You get a zoo, water park and a small tivoli in one place. Older children might get bored since there are not that many exciting animals or so many attractions in the tivoli for older children.

The most immediately notable thing about Furuvik is how wonderfully kept are the grounds. The streets are spotless and the gardens well-kept. Together with the staff being very friendly and there existing and abundance of shops this makes Furuvik a 5/5 in terms of service and presentation. When it comes to the animals and rides, Furuvik is somewhat shy of... More

For anyone with kids under 15 Furuviksparken is ideal. Not the biggest park in Sweden makes it feel 'manageable' even with younger kids along. The goats have a fairly big fenced area where you can get close acquaintances with goats of different sizes, colours and temperaments. Other animals are the chimpanzees,kangaroo s,cows,pigs, sheep, ponies,orangutan's, snakes,turtles and lots more. The theme... More

The park includes both a zoo, including kangaroos, a smaller tivoli and also a waterpark. Hence there are a lot of things to do, but probably would older teenagers not enjoy it as much as smaller kids. The zoo is nicely taken care off, but could include more informative signs, especially the terrarium involves a lot of interesting animals, but... More

After visiting Kolmården Furuvik feels kind of small. The entrence fee does not include any rides so in the end you will pay as much as at Kolmården or even any Disney park in the world for a much smaller park with fewer attractions

Perfect amusement park for smaller kids (animals, theme park), not so good for a little older teenagers during daytime, though. In the summer a bunch of good performaces by popular artists as evening events, for all ages. Swimming in the sea really cold, forget that, even though there are places to go into the water.

I went there with two boys aged 8 and 10 with an overnight package, staying in the old Orient Express train wagons located inside the park by the waterland.
