The funfair area
Do I have to pre-book times to go on all the rides?
No, not at all. You can go on our water rides as well as Tranan, Snake and Spinner as much as you want, all day long!
In addition, you can spend four hours of your visit at Tivolilandet, where our other rides are located. Book your visit to Tivolilandet at the same time as you book to visit the park.
You can also book a Jetpass to use the express queue for our new ride Snake when you book your visit. You cannot book a Jetpass for Snake after you have completed your booking.
When can i visit Tivolilandet?
When you bought your ticket, you had the option to book a time to visit Tivolilandet. You have free access to all the rides in the funfair for four hours after your booked starting time.
When you arrive at the park, you’ll be given a wristband for the rides. The colour of the wristband will show whether you have chosen an afternoon visit or a morning visit. With the wristband, you can go in and out of Tivolilandet as much as you want during your time slot.
What rules apply to advance booking for guests who have booked accommodation?
This year we’ve introduced many exciting new features at Skara Sommarland. These include the option of booking the express queue for our new ride Snake, booking a morning or afternoon visit to Tivolilandet, and booking your entrance time.
If you’ve booked accommodation, you don’t need to book a half day visit to our funfair in advance. Instead, you can choose when you arrive at the entrance whether you want to visit Tivolilandet in the morning or the afternoon. You don’t need to book an entrance time to the park. Instead, you simply enter the park when you want through the campsite entrance on the day or days when you are visiting. In addition, you won’t have the option of booking the express queue for Snake. But don’t worry – you’re still free to use the ordinary queue and go on Snake all day long!

You’ll receive a confirmation email after booking your accommodation. You can view your accommodation booking on My Pages at www.sommarland.se

At Skara Sommarland, we aim to make the park accessible to everyone. That’s why we’re continuously working to give guests with disabilities the best possible experience. Useful information for guests with disabilities Skara Sommarland is a wonderful place to visit, with its funfair and water park. The park has a few places with uneven surfaces, and has mostly asphalt roads and a few gravel paths. The park mainly consists of large, open areas.
We recommend our own campsite, which has several accessible cabins. The campsite is just a stone’s throw away from the park and has its own entrance to Skara Sommarland. For more information about our accommodation options, you can call us on +46 10-708 70 00
There are arrival and departure bus stops for public transport about 250 metres from Skara Sommarland’s Main Entrance. Buses 200, 211 and 212 operated by Västtrafik stop at the bus stop, which is called Sommarland. There is space just outside the Main Entrance where special transport services can drop off and pick up guests with disabilities.
There are parking spaces for guests with disabilities just next to the Main Entrance. Please display your disabled parking permit on the car’s front windscreen. Note that a parking fee applies.
Personal attendant or personal assistant
Guests with disabilities pay the normal admission price, but personal attendants or assistants of guests with physical or invisible disabilities have free admission. The personal attendant/assistant must be at least 16 years old and must show proof of identity. Family members and friends pay the normal admission price.
Guests with disabilities must bring certification of their disability and display it at the entrance. The certificate should include your name and a brief description of your special needs. We accept certification from healthcare professionals, municipal authorities, schools and assistance companies. Book your personal attendant/assistant’s visit via this link after booking tickets for the guest with the disability and, if applicable, other people in the group. Be prepared to show the certificate at Guest Service when you arrive at the park.
If a guest with a disability needs help getting in and out of a ride, the personal attendant/assistant can, of course, ride with them.
Guide dogs and service dogs
Working guide dogs and service dogs are welcome, provided they wear a vest and harness. Other animals are not allowed in the park.
Most of our fairground rides can be accessed by wheelchair via the ride’s exit. If you have difficulty getting into and out of a ride, you may remain on the ride until it starts up again (for a maximum of three consecutive times). The personal attendant/assistant should help the disabled guest to get into and out of the ride. Some rides (e.g. Gruvbanan, Spinner and Vikingen) have steps or uneven surfaces. For more information about our different rides, you can contact Guest Service at the Main Entrance or in the park.
Guests with invisible disabilities (who cannot use our ordinary queuing lanes) also have the option of entering through our exits. You can pick up a wristband from our Guest Service after displaying certification of your disability. The certificate should include your name, phone number and a brief description of your special needs, as well as the signature, name and contact details of a person who is familiar with your challenges. We accept certification from healthcare professionals, schools and (if applicable) assistance companies. Persons younger than 18 must also be accompanied by an adult (aged 18 or older) to get the wristband, and may be accompanied on the rides by up to one person per ride. In our water park, we have difficulty allowing people with disabilities to enter through the exit.
We generally have fewer guests in June, so that is a good time to visit us if you have difficulty dealing with large crowds and long queues.
All our restaurants offer lactose-free, gluten-free and vegetarian options. If you have other allergies or intolerances, or if you need help reading the menu or having your food served, staff nearby will be happy to help you.
