In addition to the time of the year and the rides, the event is powered by the versatile programme, restaurant services, fun fair games and shops, all themed to meet the expectations of the thrill-thirsty visitors. This year, the Creepy Carnival will be even bigger with the new area Taikaranta and the daily programme on central stage Estraadi. The parking is free, too!
