More problems arise when the park’s equipment supplier is taken over by a shady trio, with confusing demands. Why won’t Toy of Finland Ltd sell the new Moose Chute to Henri when he needs it as the park’s main attraction?

Travel Guide

BookTrail your way around Helsinki’s underworld

Most of the novel takes place in a very interesting if fictional place – an adventure park  called YouMeFun –  somewhere in the Finnish capital of Helsinki.

The park contains a giant rabbit (as seen in The Rabbit Factor) so you can imagine the atmosphere within. Our hero in the novel has inherited this place. It involves many interesting areas such as Caper Castle and woe betide anyone who tries to call it an amusement park! The park is in financial trouble however but you as the reader get to roam the park for free , avoiding the mafia and those really in charge of the park.

What can look so evil and chilling than an empty or quiet park of any kind? Helsinki appears intermittently  as characters leave the park to sort out their affairs and meet etc but the park is the star of the show. Well the rabbit is really….and now there’s a moose…..
