Leading creator of immersive attractions, Sally Corporation, has created Sweden’s first interactive dark ride at Furuvik.
‘Spökjakten’ (The Ghost Hunt) drew record attendance earlier this month when the park opened for the 2018 season. The ride was an instant hit with visitors and caused a stir among the Swedish press, with many newspapers featuring it on the front page.
Furuvik invested over $3 million to completely reimagine its existing dark ride “Spökborgen” (the Ghost Castle), transforming it into a brand new interactive experience.
Guests ride through a spooky castle where scary ghosts appear around every bend. The riders compete to blast as many ghouls as they can in order to score points.

With plenty of spooky surprises along the way, Spökjakten ensures that the fear factor is balanced with plenty of fun.
“It is very exciting that Furuvik will be the first amusement park in Sweden with an interactive dark ride,” confirmed Nina Tano, CEO at Furuvik. “Spökjakten will be a great new ride for all of our guests, young and old.”
The new attraction is one of the stars of Furuvik’s ongoing refurbishment programme which began two years ago. New additions include the rebound coaster ”Fireball” which opened this year.
Furuvik is operated by Parks and Resorts Scandinavia whose attractions include Gröna Lund, Kolmården, Aquaria and Skara Sommarland. The park is also famous for its zoo with a particular focus on chimpanzees.
