For the Young at HeartSkara Sommarland combines the thrills of a waterpark with the joys of an amusement park. You can entertain the entire family for the day at this large waterpark five miles from Skara, which is why it receives 350,000 visitors a year. In addition to the multiple water slides — some covered, some open — and large pool, the park also has a fun fair with three different types of roller coasters and other thrill rides, as well as go carts. At the family-friendly park it’s perfectly alright to bring your own picnic or grill your hamburgers on the community barbecue, and children under three feet and two inches get in for free. The park also has a designated family camp site with its own entrance into the park. Open during summer season only.
