Take a break from everyday life in Rulantica
Cool down on hot summer days
The Rulantica water world rises up high, luring in visitors from afar. Adventurers of all ages can discover a total of 13 themed settings both indoors and outdoors. In addition to 'Svalgurok', one of the largest outdoor slide landscapes in Europe, the extensive outdoor area ‘Snorri Strand’ has also been open to the public since last year. From May, it will even offer two more attractions: With three slides, there is plenty of water fun to be had for little adventurers at 'Snorri's Rutscheplads. Behind 'Snorri Strand', Rulantica's younger guests can try out two gently curving children's slides and a mini racing slide, all of which lead down from a hill. Snorri has also discovered plenty of flotsam on the 'Skip Strand’; perfect for building 'Snorri's Spelaborg'. This interactive play corner is easily manageable and is located behind 'Snorri Strand'.
As the children run around having fun, adults can enjoy the Baden sun on one of the over 1,000 loungers around 'Svalgurok' and 'Snorri Strand'.

From spring, there is even more space outside to relax: visitors can reach the Nordic sandy beach 'Dynstrønd' via a wooden footbridge. From May to September, on an area of 1,400m², the area offers more loungers, including comfortable beach chairs and stylish hanging chairs for that pure holiday feeling.

Next door, things are progressing fast for a new attraction. From summer, a special roundabout water ride from Mack Rides allows guests to immerse themselves in the mystical theme in gondolas decorated with runes. This is a great chance for visitors to quickly cool off. With the opening in Rulantica this summer, the ride will be presented in a water park for the first time worldwide.
All this water fun is bound to work up an appetite! From May to September, visitors can enjoy snacks such as delicious sandwiches, fruit cups and cakes at Snorri's Piknikbud on Snorri Strand. At the 'Strand Kök' food court, various delicacies can be enjoyed with a view of the 'Svalgurok' outdoor area, including salads and various coffee specialties, delicious waffles and ice cream swirls. In addition, visitors can now also take a break in 'Snekkjas Vinterhage’, a raised terrace with seating for 100 people - this area features a conservatory-style look and will be open in the summer to offer guests a shady spot on sunny days.
