Rides, animal shows, and family fun at the outdoor amusement park, Connyland…only 40+ minutes outside Zurich.
What to Expect
A quaint amusement park that can fill an entire day with fun, but by no means is too overwhelming in scale. Easily walkable from one end to the other and surprisingly in the 3 times we’ve been, there are never any lines (even during a Sunday trip).
We rode the log flume over and over again, dodged the laser beams countless times, water blasted the attacking pirates, bounced in the castle and there’s even 1 roller coaster for the big kids at heart (that’s us mommas!).
Kids ages 4 – 10 will really get the most out of the day, but there’s plenty for 2 – 3 year olds too including the charming train ride, flying elephants and spaceship adventure playground.
What to Bring
Lunch. While there are a few typical swissy-style kid restaurants (pizzas, bratwurst, etc) picnics are allowed and there’s a designated grilling area so save the lunch money for late afternoon cotton candy.
Stroller. The park is completely stroller friendly, even for bigger buggies.
Extra Coins. While 90% of the activities are included, there’s a few coin operated cars and arcade style games so unless you can dodge them, be prepared with coins.
Bathing Suit. A fun mini pool with water activities and splash fountains require full on bathing suit gear.
Tiny Tots Tips
Babies / toddlers will be excited for a stroller break and can crawl around the soft-play area of the Jungle Adventure. This area is indoors and has a ball pit and soft-play area. If you need to divide & conquer with older siblings, this is a great go-to for the wee ones to have some fun too.
By the front entrance, you’ll find a small baby changing room and breast feeding area.
Zuri Girl Tips
Check the Show Times. There’s a Sea Lion Show and Parrot Show. Both are held in Swiss German, but watching the bird bicycle and Sea Lions kiss you are fun in any language! The shows only take place 1 – 2 times a day so check the times when arriving as they’re not to be missed.
