Fårup Sommerland – amusement park
Fårup is one of Denmark's largest tourist attractions with plenty of wild, fun and crazy water activities for the whole family. Everything from wild roller coasters and a children's theme park to Denmark's largest and wettest water world.
This year, the lovely summerland opens on 3 April!
Close to the beach by Blokhus and Løkken and yet all the way in the forest you will find the amusement park Fårup Sommerland. Fårup is one of Denmark's largest tourist attractions with plenty of wild, fun and crazy water activities for the whole family. Everything from wild roller coasters and a children's theme park to Denmark's largest and wettest water world. There are more than 60 rides - and once the admission has been paid, all rides and the Aqua Park are free.
Autumn Festival & Light Fall during the autumn holidays
This autumn, Fårup Sommerland invites you to atmospheric events. During the day you can experience Denmark's nicest Autumn Festival with plenty of activities for the whole family. Compete against the whole family in celeriac bowling, pumpkin cross and bun, or go exploring in the large straw bale maze.
When the sun goes down, the light breaks through to Lysfald with thousands of sparkling lamps. The overall theme is the magical change of the seasons, and after a sensory journey through the seasons, the experience ends with the change of the year - New Year - and Lysfald will interpret a New Year's party in light and sound! The forest, the rides and Fårup will light up like you've never seen before!
You can experience the Autumn Festival and Light Fall on the weekend of 6-8. October and throughout the autumn holidays from 13-22. October, and they are open until 9:30 p.m.
Speed, fun and happy times for adults and children
The forest offers experiences for the whole family. For example, the youngest can take a ride in “Den Røde Baron” (The Red Baron) where the little pilots control their aeroplanes themselves. Another of the children’s favourites in Fårup is the “Egerntårnet” (The Squirrel Tower) where you are elevated up to the tree tops and with a free-fall, you rush back to the ground. For the older and speed crazy guests, there are fast and furious roller coasters with plenty of speed. As the only one in the Nordic region - the Hurricane roller coaster - runs both above and BELOW the water! It is also possible to try Denmark’s wildest acceleration in the roller coaster “Lynet” (The Lightening), which shoots off from 0 to 80 km/h in just two seconds. Or how about a ride in “Falken” (The Falcon), Denmark's fastest wooden roller coaster, “Hvirvelvinden” (The Whirlwind) where you are tossed up and down from a 19-metre height while rotating or Denmarks absolut biggest roller coaster Fønix, which is the tallest, fastest, longest loop-trail. Fårup is much more than fun roller coasters. You can also romp about on bouncy castles, numerous trampolines, horse riding, canoeing, mini-golfing, climbing frames or try all the elements in the huge playground. And, most of all, Fårup is all about happy times and real forest atmosphere!
News 2023 - The trip around
A news for the smallest of the forest moves in! This year's novelty will be a brand new large carousel on two floors with good access for wheelchair users. The carousel will be themed in true Fårup style and at the top of the carousel there will be room for pleasant fragments of Fårup's history.
The tour moves in next to Motorbøllen. Here, a fantastic new environment is created with room for play and fun. A brand new sandbox moves in as well as a new sensory area with lovely soft surfaces and challenges for the little ones. While the gold nuggets play, mum and dad can enjoy a cafe latte from Restaurant Oasen and relax on a brand new wooden terrace.
The area's ice cream shop gets a huge makeover and doubles in size. Among other things, the most delicious pancakes will be on the menu here. The park will therefore have a completely new area, which it is hoped that the little ones and their parents will love!
Denmarks largest rollercoaster Fønix
A massive new roller coaster will rise from the forest floor and the ashes of corona by April 2022. Fønix (Phoenix) will rise 40 metres into the air – and extend majestically into the forest – in Denmark’s longest loop ride. Fønix will be the undisputed fastest bird in any Danish forest with a top speed of 95 kilometres an hour. Fønix will be the first roller coaster in the world to feature a “stall loop”.

Denmark's largest water world
You will also find Denmark’s largest heated Aquapark in the park where the entire family can romp in the wild waves in Bølgebassinet (The Wave Pool) which is heated to 27 degrees. You can also whizz down in a race on Surfhill and ride together in a huge swim ring in Vandslangen (Water Snake). You could also try the "Vandkanon" (Water Canon), which is the world's first outdoor water roller coaster with a free fall and two loops.
When your time splashing about is over and your hair is dry, you can surprise your senses in the 4D cinema or laze in the shade of the trees and conjure up a great meal in the grill area where the Weber barbecues are ready for you - completely free of charge. The whole family can find their favourite dishes - in our delicious buffet restaurant and in the many eateries in the park. If you prefer organic, you can try the 100% organic eatery, Skovens Pasta - Organic eatery.
Stay in Denmark's most fun forest
Who doesn't dream about waking up right in the middle of the park with a fantastic view of the lake, “Orkanen” (Hurricane) and “Falken” (Falcon) - ready for wonderful experiences? Fårup Sommerland’s own hotel - Hotel Fårup - is a four-star family hotel themed in true Fårup forest atmosphere, which is made for happy times, play and relaxation for the whole family.

Naturally, the hotel’s restaurant is open to both park and hotel guests.
