Scandinavian-themed amusement parks have become more exciting since their early days, when their star attractions were the lingonberry toss and the Copenhagen Treaty Coaster. Experience more potent Nordic thrills with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get two one-day unlimited passes to Scandia Amusement Park in Ontario (up to a $45.90 value), open daily during afternoon and evening hours. This Groupon does not include tokens for the arcade or batting cages.
Scandia Amusement Park sends fun-seeking guests hurtling down harrowing coaster dips and frolicking through picturesque miniature golf courses. Attractions such as the Scandia Screamer Coaster and Nordic Spaceship smite boredom with their steep drops and twisting turns, forging brave warriors in their steely gauntlets. Over 12,000 flowers planted amid trickling streams and rushing waterfalls line the lush northern landscape of the Scandinavian-themed miniature golf courses, where dimpled balls must circumnavigate windmills and periodic Viking pillages. The Stockholm Raceway pits Volvos against Saabs in a test of Swedish go-kart supremacy, while the new Cliff Jumper sends gusts plummeting down the cast-iron cliff of a freshwater fjord. Families can lunch in a picnic area before returning for another round on the Baltic Sea Bumper Boats, a modern take on the ancient Nordic game of bumper goats.
