Like haunted candy stores, amusement parks provide an acceptable atmosphere in which to scream aloud with a mouth full of confections. Get a sugar rush and adrenaline fix in one outing with today’s Groupon to Scandia Ontario. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get an unlimited miniature-golf outing for two (up to a $21.90 value).

With more than a dozen Scandinavian-themed rides and a miniature golf course that sprawls across acres of Swedish and Norwegian meadows, Scandia Ontario boasts a range of attractions for every level of thrill-seeker. Two miniature golf courses provide a lush, green respite from the park’s brilliant lights and whirring rides. More than 12,000 flowers line up along the courses’ tees, where golf balls gulp before attempting to circumnavigate rivers, waterfalls, windmills, and gelatinous ponds of lingonberry jam. Amusement-park staples take on a Nordic twist in rides such as the Copenhagen Carousel and Little Dipper Coaster, whose dips emulate the shifting light patterns of the aurora borealis. A chorus of screams provides the soundtrack to a ride on Olga’s Tilt-A-Whirl, and sailors of all stripes put their high-seas bravery to the test on the Viking Ship or bumper boats.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Scandia Ontario a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.
Scandia Amusement Park
Scandia Amusement Park adds a Nordic theme to classic amusement-park rides. Towering over the park, the signature Scandia Screamer Coaster sends riders through more high-speed drops, twists, and turns than that time they tried to cartwheel down the stairs. Shrieks of excitement echo at Cliff Jumper, a 100-foot-drop tower, and the Viking Ship, which swings like a giant pendulum through the air. A kiddie section treats young visitors to less-intense rides, including a carousel and the aptly named Little Dipper Coaster.
Back on the ground, more than 12,000 vibrant flowers line two Scandavian-themed putt-putt courses. Waterfalls and trickling streams calm players as they putt golf balls through challenging obstacles such as a stone castle. The competition continues at batting cages, which hurl baseballs and scoops of ice cream at speeds of up to 70 miles per hour. Aside from these everyday attractions, Scandia Amusement Park lures in visitors with birthday-party packages and a seasonal haunted house.
