For the first time ever, Stockholm’s one and only amusement park Gröna Lund open up for Halloween. Between October 27th and November 5th, the tivoli, together with a few scary creatures, welcomes you to celebrate Halloween.
Are you brave enough to visit the amusement park during Halloween? We are honestly hesitating. Besides Gröna Lund’s “regular” haunted house – House of Nightmares – the attraction Blå Tåget (Blue Train) will become even more scarier, and the funny house Lustiga Huset will become… not so funny anymore. For those who really have guts, a new haunted house called Motel Hell/o will open for this occasion. As if this wasn’t enough, the area will be invaded by creatures, zombies and other scary beings after the darkness has arrived…
When you need to calm down, you can take a ride in one of the many (non-scary) attractions or watch the fire-show at the big stage. For the children there will be a slightly less scary celebration, with witches, ghosts and pumpkins. Opening hours and prices can be found on Gröna Lund’s website.
