The adventure park features real steam locomotives and a wagon show. We have Finland's longest park railway and the Little Huru locomotive operates every day during the summer. The children can also enjoy the playground and the animals in the park.

Our services

Our comprehensive range of services includes various opportunities to explore steam locomotives and railway history. Our park train operates daily on a 500-meter loop, driven by Pikku-Huru. For groups we organize draisine tours on request.

There are also many other things to do to keep the whole family happy. For example, you have the opportunity to learn how to drive ATVs on the park road. On Saturday, popular parties are held in the area.

The renovated children's area features a large motor rack, a survival track, a large bouncy pillow, fairy tale houses, a ball pit and games. Next to the children's area are the park train station and the animal enclosure.

Steam locomotives

Twelve different types of steam locomotive can be seen in the steam locomotive park. Four of our steam locomotives are over a hundred years old. Here are some of our steam locomotives (Year in brackets):


Tk2-419 (1903)
Wilson 618 (1917)
Jumbo 609 (1917)
Ukko-Pekka 1010 (1949)


One of our steam locomotives is a split locomotive that demonstrates how a steam locomotive works. This heavy-duty Hr1 (nicknamed Ukko-Pekka) manufactured at the Lokomo engineering workshop in Tampere in 1939 has the production line number 1003. The color identifiers point out spectacularly the functional parts of the great steam engine. In an article in Resiina magazine, the old henchmen of the industry are getting to know the heart and soul of Ukko-Pekka.
