The Happyland park


Happyland is an amusement park located in Granges in the commune of Sierre in Valais along the Rhône river on nearly 25,000 m². Created in 1988 by Otto and Elsa Matter under the name of Babyland, it changed its name one year later to Happyland. A few years ago the park was renamed “Happyland New” to mark the arrival of new attractions. However, it remains better known under its name of Happyland.

It is the second largest amusement park in Switzerland after Conny-Land near Lake Constance in the canton of Thurgau. The park was taken over in 2017 by a new family after almost 30 years of activities under the management of the founders. It is ideally suited for children aged 6 to 12.

The access


Parking is available next to the park entrance or along the road to Happyland.

The attractions


The activities date back halfway to the birth of the park and bring a vintage touch to the place. The park is well maintained and the low attendance allows for very little waiting time to make attractions. A supervisor is in charge of several attractions, sometimes it is necessary to go and get him to start an attraction such as a helicopter.

The park prices


It is important to be aware of the pricing policy, which is highly commented on the Internet, in the sense that a 3-year-old child will pay the same price as an adult (23 francs), knowing that these two age groups cannot benefit from all the attractions. For example, for a family of four with two adults and two children aged 3 and 5, an entrance budget of nearly 100 francs will be required.

However, this park can be compared to a Luna Park such as the one that can be found once a year in Ouchy Lausanne. The individual price of tickets to this event, which can easily amount to 5 – 10 francs, can also make it quite expensive with longer waits and a less pleasant environment for parents than in Happyland. Consequently, the Torpille team recommends staying at least 6 hours in Happyland to make the most of its day.

The restaurant


You can enjoy the beautiful 300-seat terraces to eat at the park’s refreshment bar or simply take your picnic. Sun loungers are also available in the park.
