Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is an attraction with rides, food and midway-type games. Clearly the place is intended for, and used by, teenagers. However, it is fun to wander around get something to eat. If you have kids, buy a pass and you get some peace and quiet while they have fun.

    There is a tram ( #3) that lets you off right in front. That is a lot better than driving and parking.

    Can’t say enough good things about this experience. I went on a Tuesday evening for the public sauna - 2 hrs. It’s so homey and inviting. Very well equipped with changing rooms, extra bathing suits, a grill, picnic table, plenty of chairs, and a fridge full of refreshing drinks. It’s situated right next to a public swimming beach which is perfect for cooling off between rounds of sauna. Absolutely beautiful surroundings- felt just like my home in Maine, US. Blooming flowers abound in summer. Highly recommended even if you are staying in the center of Helsinki- its about a 20-25 minute ride by uber. Well worth it. Great value too.

    The escape games are excellent and challenging. ^v^ We played 'The Holy Grail' & 'Trapped' on the same day. As we enjoyed the first one a lot, and joined the second one immediately. The props and puzzles are great. Always need to pay more attention to details to solve the puzzles.

    PS. If play with your partner, we highly recommend to reserve online and use their dating offer with the discount code, it is muchhhhh cheaper! It's definitely a good date activity. <3

    A thoroughly authentic sauna offering - very different to the tourist experience offered by Allas Sea Pool or Löyly Helsinki and in my opinion, much better for it. This is a fabulous place and if you’re considering it, you should go!

    After a day of walking Helsinki city, we opted to visit this place to see both the tour of Finland and of Helsinki.

    It was a quiet day for the operator and so we had the entire cinema to ourselves. Great cinematic experience.

    Operator was very courteous and most accommodating, by giving us a break between the two shows.

    Great show!!

    One of the best escape rooms I have experienced. Perfect for 4 persons. Different kind of locks and ways to solve puzzles.

    Our family of three did the "Helsinki by Kayak" guided tour of about 3 hours' length. We've done a very tiny bit of kayaking before on very calm waters, but are pretty close to being beginners, so we can say that this tour is (as they say in their promo materials) perfectly suitable for those with little or no kayaking experience. Aniinna was our guide and she was fantastic, very friendly, informative, and watching out for how we were doing at all times.

    The tour started on the body of water near the "Long Bridge," just in front of the Botanical Garden, went west under a railroad bridge into a bigger bay with fantastic views of downtown Helsinki buildings, then we went east into other bays, beached on a small city island for a snack (which they provided) and bathroom break, and paddled into slightly more industrial parts which was fun too. Other than when the weather got a bit rainy and windy near the end requiring us to paddle a little harder, the waters were generally super gentle and easy to glide around.

    This tour gives you a wonderful perspective on the city that you can't experience in any other way. The waters in and around Helsinki are so integral to the geography and the very nature of the city that you will come to a deeper "feeling" for the city if you participate in this tour. For our family I can say we will never forget this experience. And again, we are pretty close to being kayaking rookies. Natura Viva seems like a great outfit, run by folks with a great love for their land and the desire to share that with visitors.

    The experience has been great the kids have been so excited the whole time. We saw plenty of raindeers, mooses, rabbits and even a lynx which is usually very rare. Joni is a great patient and passionate guide. Reliable and professional. It has been a beautiful unforgettable experience !

    We did this as a small group of colleagues and had lots of fun. We didn't mind that some of the tasks were pretty easy. Tourists would probably enjoy a bit more information about the city but as locals we just enjoyed the activity itself. Great for local businesses as a team work developement for example.

    I was the one tasked to read the clues and had some trouble trying to read one at a time because the clues are printed. Also, it was not always clear if we should read the next clue.

    I enjoyed the route (Sampo) as it took us to places that even I as a local might not otherwise visit. There are lots of shops and restaurants along the way so if your group does not have somewhere to be afterwards (like we did), it could be fun to sit down every now and then.

    Overall, a good experience :) with a bit more developement I'm sure it will grow into a blooming business!
