Physical Disabilities

A disabled person must prove their need for an assistant with the EU Disability Card (with an A marking indicating the need for assistance).
      • Please take into account that in our ticket sales we do not make assessments of the customer’s state of health or the need for an assistant, but the need for an assistant must be proved as mentioned above. The customer must therefore have a disability card with them.

      • Also, a copy/photo of the disability card, an application letter, a medical diagnosis or any other similar statement does not entitle the assistant to free entry.
    • The prerequisite for an assistant permit is that the person being assisted has paid for the entrance ticket (wristband) or that they have another ticket product (e.g. season pass). As a general rule, an assistant permit can only be granted to one assistant of the assisted person.
    • As a general rule, the assistant must be of legal age. A minor can also act as an assistant on a case-by-case basis. The assistant must actually be able to act as an assistant.
    • A visually impaired person’s assistance dog can be brought to the water park. Otherwise, bringing animals to the water park is not allowed.
  2. The Serena area has barrier-free entry and passage from one space to another. Please note, however, that the access to the pools and slides is via the stairs, so there is no wheelchair access.

  • Are there group discounts for ski lift tickets? Group discounts apply to groups of 16 or more. Ask a quotation beforehand.
  • How does a smart card work? For the ski lift ticket, you need a reusable smart card (disposable smart cards are also on sale). You can buy a card from Serena or use your existing card. The list of accepted cards and payment methods is in the price list. The desired ticket type is loaded onto the smart card. Place the card in the left sleeve pocket so that it is easily read by the ski lift gate. Note! Other cards in the same pocket can interfere with the operation of the ski lif gate reader. When you come to the gate, the gate device reads your ticket automatically. After the time is up, you should keep the card, because you can load it with a new ticket not only in Serena, but also in most other ski resorts in Finland.
  • Can a balance be loaded onto a smart card? Only ski lift tickets or a season pass can be loaded onto the smart card. A monetary balance cannot be loaded onto the smart card.
  • I also use the smart card in other centers, can I load Serena’s ticket on it? You can only load one Serena ticket on one smart card at a time, but tickets from other centers can also be valid on it at the same time. So Serena’s ticket does not erase the tickets/season passes of other centers that may be on your card.
  • I’m just going to quickly try it out, do I still need to buy a smart card? A smart card is always required when loading a ski lift ticket. Smart cards are not loaned to customers. However, if you wish, you can buy a single-use smart card, which is cheaper than reusable.
  • Does a child under 6 also need a ticket and a smart card? Helmeted children aged 0-5 get free access to all slopes with a ticketed guardian. One free child per paying adult. The child does not need his own ticket, because the child and the guardian enter the gate in the same turn.
  • From when is the use time of the lift ticket calculated? The available time starts when you first enter the lift gate. So you can easily put your equipment in order, go for a coffee, etc., because you won’t lose the skiing time at this stage yet.
  • Which lifts does the children’s lift ticket go to? Can an adult buy it? The ticket for the children’s lift is valid for the carpet lift, platter lift and rope lift. The children’s lift ticket is valid all day. Of course, beginner adults can also use the children’s lifts, there is no age limit for the children’s lifts!

The use of the company season pass is allowed for the staff of the company that bought the season pass, or otherwise as agreed in writing in advance.
