    We spent a day at the ELF with the, for this park, a little older children (11 and 15 years) We did with Pippi, Rasmus, sing-along, Emil & Ida, Ronja and saltkråkan. All the performances were amazing with talented actors of all ages. The Park is very orderly and clean. There are great eateries with delicious home cooking. Junk food type fries are not served at all. We are very satisfied with our day on the ALV.

    One of the best parks we visited with the children! 1400kr in the entry but it is in the class with the other parks we visit. Should I complain about anything, it is that food prices are quite high given that it's the families to go to. But it is, of course, free to bring their own food into the Park and sit at one of the benches. I am totally impressed with the actors who really are doing a great job:-) You go there for the first time so I recommend 2 days so you have time for everything you want. We will definitely return:-)

    This Park is not for families who can not Swedish, or don't know the stories or have a narrow budget available. First 50 Crowns at the car park pay, then 2 adults and 1 child (6 years) expectations (this is not the price of the week but the day card) are high about €120. Ideas already nicely done, but our son has not so often looked at the books and films of Pippi and co. that he intellectually had the stories and could follow. We come from the Camping Resort Västervik, there's great playgrounds where he has fun for hours. The playgrounds in Lingrens World were our hope so, or for the price Yes something good had to come. Absent, it is just several tiny areas of the game, most of the fun was over after 10 minutes. The children flood the play areas are too small, so 30 minutes are to cradle for example. Conclusion: The Park is for Lindgren fans / fools who have too much money to the account. My tip for all those who are not: go with your child on a beautiful playground and buys you then have an ice cream or a Cinnamon Bun. Then their €200 have saved and had a beautiful day.

  • Fantastic place for kids they really loved it...so did we
  • If you like spending an abundance of money on a day of fun for the whole family (up to a maximum of three children or they hate you) this is probably the place for you! If you're looking for Astrid Lindgren related stuff, go to Näs or get out of town to the countryside.
  • Great place for both the young ones and the old ones. Make sure to plan your visit a bit. Use the app! The restaurants serves great Swedish home made food from local producers. Stay for at least two days otherwise you won't see it all.
  • Really nice place to go to with kids who love Astrid Lindgren. However I only give 4 stars because food is so expensive, you have to extra for the parking lot at the location which leads to long car queues and the entrance fee is quite high. So the total cost is too high for calling it a perfect family location
  • So wonderful! Everything except Pippis house!
