Gröna Lund is sited in the centre of the Swedish capital, Stockholm, and as such is relatively constricted in space. It manages, however, to punch well above its size in terms of the range and quality of the attractions on offer.
Originally founded in 1883, it has grown into an immensely popular entertainment destination and hosts A-list concerts in the summer months. In what would be one of his last performances, Bob Marley played a landmark concert to a record-breaking 32,000 people at Gröna Lund in 1980. Other acts that have appeared at the park include The Beatles, Tom Jones, Louis Armstrong, Jimi Hendrix, Kiss, Lady Gaga, and of course the legendary Swedish sensation Abba.
As well as serving as one of the city's most popular concert venues, Gröna Lund is also a major amusement park and features over 30 rides and attractions. Highlights include Twister, a wooden rollercoaster from Great Coasters International; Jetline, a classic Schwarzkopf coaster; and Lustiga Huset, a fun house which originally opened with the park in 1883. Without much room to expand, Gröna Lund is big on space-saving tower rides. Its collection includes a drop tower, a shot tower and a star flyer. In 2017, these were joined by Ikaros, a 95 meter freefall tower that plunges riders towards the ground at a 90 degree angle.
