I have been working here for a couple of years:
-Opening: different times, different days in different months, do check it here before you plan to go : http://www.tusenfryd.no/no/apningstider
-Car: This amusement park is located almost 20 km away from Oslo. If you are driving to get there, there´s a parking fee, 50 krones per car right outside it. You are usually shown parking lots abit far (3-4 minutes of walking uphill, but it´s quiet tiring in the morning to run out of energy, you are actually going to walk uphill in the park as well, save the energy). When you are late, you will of course get even further from the park tip find a parking lot. So I recommend that you are out early.
-Bus: from Oslo, every 15 mins. Bus 541 Drøbak/TusenFryd, and the stop is at Jernbanetorget (Fred Olsens gate). This is a bit hard to find, so it´s smarter to ask people near the Tiger to show you where the Tusenfryd bus stops, and that way it´s easier to find it (Green buses)! There are also other buses passing by Tusenfryd, but they are even harder to find and schedule. Recommended to buy the tickets before hand and not onboard, they will cost you adult 50 and children under 18 yrs for 25. Onboard you will pay 20 krones more!!!! which makes it very expensive.
-Prices: very expensive. But they have a height-dependent price system: under 120 cm is 315 krones if you buy there. Buy it online (if you have printer facilities) more than a week before, and it will cost you 269. Over 120 would be 389 kr, and 299 more than a week before. This really makes Norway sound expensive!
-The attractions: I would say, they are also height-dependent. The ones over 120 cm can ride anything in this park, for free, except for Sky coaster which cost almost 200 kr for a ride. But everything else is of course free. For those under 120 cm, there are strict restrictions. You children are being measured, and are you under 120, you then are, and there is no point in starting a fight with workers, and make a fuss. So measure your child before you go in and prepare them of this situation, that they are not gonna be able to take a ride on everything they want to. The restrictions and a measure is outside every single attraction here, measure yourselves before you go in, if you have doubt. I have as mentioned been working here for 3 years, I know they have very strict restrictions because of the childs safety to say no, and a no is a no, believe me!
-Food: mostly anything you wish for, with very high prices.
-Toilets, wheelchair-users, safes, cash-machine and so on: YES!
-Restrictions for the unable ones, wheelchair users and so on: non, as long as they make the height. They get a free-line-pass when they go in, and don´t stand in the line. Which is really a plus.
-Swiming pool: yes, at the right time of the year.
-Waiting: when the weather is good and it´s in the middle of summer, yes, the lines are LONG!
-Overall experience: definitely a very good one. Despite being very expensive, it´s worth the visit for both the children and adults, a great way to have fun. They definitely live up to the high expectations because of the price. It´s very popular for norwegians to visit the park to days in a row ( you get your second ticket for much cheaper, called a second-day ticket). There are hotels located in Oslo and the cities around Vinterbro and Ski.
-Staff: they are very polite, helping, and friendly. Ask questions whenever needed.
Please do make sure your children get this height system, some children really feel like their day is ruined when they find out they can´t go on a ride with some this attractions.
Have a fun day.
