Bø Sommarland is Scandinavia's largest water park with attractions for the whole family. Experience, among other things, this year's (2024) novelty HiwiHuhu, Scandinavia's LARGEST splash land, Kånns Tiki (novelty 2023), Europe's largest water roller coaster, Mot i Brøstet, and a 9-meter free fall in the iconic Magasuget.

HiwiHuhu (New in 2024)
Triple fun! Zip down 110 meters face to face with two others. Laughter will roll when you see their expressions! When you're sent down the slide over 10 meters high, you'll swoosh into a dark and enclosed circle. Then you'll swing through two open circles before safely reaching the bottom.
HiwiHuhu is our first slide where three people can slide simultaneously. It's also our only slide where you sit face to face. In addition to the three-person boat, the slide has two-person and one-person boats. So, you have three options. Whatever you choose, it's insanely fun to zip down HiwiHuhu!
HiwiHuhu means "swoosh-swoosh" and is the highlight of our new area Te Tonga, which was the big news of the year in 2023.

Kånns Tiki – Scandinavia's largest splash land! (New in 2023)
Kånns Tiki is a crazy fun water playground spanning 800 square meters. The splash land is designed for our youngest guests (0-10 years). Here, children can explore, play, and unleash their imagination in safe surroundings. The area is filled with nearly 100 fun figures and elements, including a tower with four small slides.

Among Europe's best
Bø Sommarland features some of Europe's largest and most spectacular water activities. Here are just a few of them. Visit sommarland.no to learn more and book tickets!

Vassføyka is a giant slide with four lanes, where you can race your friends! You lie on special mats and spin through a dark tunnel before reaching a top speed of 45 km/h on the home stretch. Who will get down first?

Mot i Brøstet
One of Europe's largest water roller coasters! An activity that really gives you butterflies in your stomach, but it's not scarier than being suitable for most people.

At Bø Sommarland, you'll find one of Europe's largest water halfpipes! Here, you launch off the edge of a large halfpipe in a rubber boat for two. The halfpipe is for the bravest.

Insanely fun for the whole family
Bø Sommarland offers a varied range of water activities for both young and old. Here, the whole family can have fun! In addition to challenging slides for those who really want to test their courage, you'll also find calm and more relaxing water slides and swimming pools in the park.

Fun for toddlers
Bø Sommarland has several areas for the little ones. The Te Tonga area with the splash land Kånns Tiki is specifically designed for our youngest guests (0-10 years).
In the Water Park, you'll find a large pool with multiple levels and small water slides. At Bøverstranda, you can relax on a sun lounger while the toddlers enjoy the shallow part of the heated pool.

Safe surroundings
Bø Sommarland puts safety first. This means you can safely let the children enjoy water activities that suit them, and even the most daring slides are safe for everyone.
