Summer holiday in PowerPark

The wonderous entertainment centre PowerPark is an astonishing sight amidst the endless expanse of land. A person heading to Härmä for the first time may fall off their seat in disbelief when PowerPark appears in sight. The silhouette of PowerPark features the magnificent world-class Mika Salo Circuit karting track and over 40 amusement park rides. In addition, Funland includes the home of trolls and pixies known as Imagine Nation, a high-quality minigolf course, an indoor karting track, the magnificent shopping centre RoadHouse, a huge event and multipurpose arena and a lovely equestrian centre.

PowerPark is one of the most special success stories in rural tourism

However, PowerPark’s numerous amusements and experiences have not appeared from thin air, even though at the turn of the millennium at PowerPark’s location there was nothing but turnips as far as the eye could see. Right at the beginning of the millennium, the magnificent Mika Salo Circuit go-kart track was constructed in the area. This race track has had the honour to host EC and WC go-karting. After the go-kart trackwas constructed, PowerPark confidently set out to become a full-service leisure entertainment centre. Soon, a high-quality hotel and the first amusement park rides were built in the area – the recipe for the most entertaining tourist destination in Finland was ready. Since then, PowerPark has received numerous recognitions, such as the title of the best leisure centre in Finland in a total of six different years, and the 2015 tourism company award. 

The secret of PowerPark is diversity. PowerPark also has a lot to offer for the little ones in the family, including activities in the troll village, safari rides and pony rides. We have not forgotten about the daredevils either, as PowerPark has many well-known thrilling rides, such as the Junker and the Booster. The unparalleled roller coaster Pitts Special, which was built in 2020, is also sure to make your head spin!
