The view, the rides, the friendly staff, the thrill, the laughter and the hot cocoa with cream when the energy runs low. An absolute must in the winter in Oslo !

yes, is located in zone 1; take line 1 direction Frognerseteren, and get off at the last stop Frognerseteren; so no train day ticket required if you have the Oslo Pass
