There’s a Tiny Amusement Park for Mice in Sweden
Disney doesn’t have a monopoly on mouse-themed amusement parks anymore.
A tiny amusement park designed specifically for furry rodents opened in Malmo, Sweden over the weekend.
The incredibly-detailed amusement — or amousement — park includes all that a mouse could want on a day out. There’s a scary roller coaster in the shape of a cat, a fortune teller named Madame Raclette and even appropriately-sized port-a-potties. For hungry mice, there’s a popcorn stand and for the more adventurous mice, there’s also a carnival stall called “Lucky Cheese” where they can gamble.
The park — called Tjoffsans Tivoli, after a character in a Swedish children’s novel — announced via Instagram on Sunday that it was open and “welcoming visitors of all ages.” However the entire thing is meant less as a fun spot for rodents than as a work of street art.
The miniature park is part of AnonyMouse, an installation that popped up on Malmo’s busy Södra Förstadsgatan street last year. In December, the tiny mouse city opened with a restaurant and store for mouse visitors and quickly gained viral attention.
The creators behind the project told The Local Sweden that they will continue expanding upon the tiny mouse city in the future — although they have not revealed what’s up next.
