Part zoo and part amusement park, Dyreparken represents one of Norway's most popular attractions and will entertain both children and adults alike. View over 140 native Scandinavian and exotic species, such as tigers, lions, giraffes, lynx, and apes. Stop by the sea lion pool to watch its residents interact and play. Head over to the amusement park area and take a ride on the log run, the bob run, the carousel, or Norway's longest slide. There is also a waterpark with attractions suitable for the whole family. Check the website for show times of the kid's show with Captain Sabertooth, a visitor favorite!
