The amusement park Linnanmäki opened its doors on Saturday April 25.

This year, instead of building yet another ride among the 43 already in place, the folks behind the amusement park decided to listen carefully to the customers’ needs and put together 100 new improvements around the park.

Finland Today got acquainted with the revamped park on Friday, while the crew was putting the final pieces together. Watch the video and join the tour around some of the improvements.
