Tusenfryd stands for Thousand Joys. It is also a common daisy. Tusenfryd is the largest amusement park in Norway. It is located about 20 miles south of Oslo. From the years 1950 through 1985, the area that the park is now in belonged to a zoo. The zoo was closed and 2 businessmen, Terge Buer, and Tor Erling signed a lease to rent part of the zoo’s former land to build a theme park. A year and a half later, in June of 1988, they opened up Tusenfryd. The first season the park was opened it attracted about a half a million visitors.
The park is not divided into themed areas. There is one area of the park that was opened in the year 1993 called Morgan Kane Town. There is another section called Vikingland that was opened in the year 1995 and there is also a small fairy tale land that was opened in the year 2000. The mascot of the park is Fryd.
One of the most unique things about the park is the entrance. You ride an escalator uphill through a roller coaster loop. The park offers gorgeous flower beds and it is located on a forested area of a hill. This means that you will be walking uphill a lot. The park takes up 55 acres.
