This Swedish theme park focuses on America's Wild West. Throughout this recreation of an old pioneer town, you'll find eateries such as the Restaurant Diligensen ("Stagecoach Restaurant"), offering dishes like lasagna al forno and fried salmon with Hollandaise sauce, and the Pizzeria Manolito, which promises the "Tastiest pizzas of the Wild West." If you want to wet your whistle, you can get a drink at the Saloon Cheyenne or River City First Saloon, and should you drink to excess (better yet if you don't), you can start your next morning's recovery at "Mamma Dalton's Pang-cake house," promising "The best pang-cakes in the Wild West."
Non-edible attractions include activities like gold-panning, horseback riding and target shooting with Annie Oakley, and several shows, including the "Zorro Show," "Indian Show," and "Journey to America," highlighting the great emigration wherein approximately 1.5 million Swedes moved to the United States in the second half of the 19th and early 20th centuries (a staggering number, considering Sweden's total population in 1850 was less than 3.5 million). Other park characters include Billy the Kid, "Indians," the scary "Gravedigger," and Sven-Erik and Ester Johanson, "clever and helpful settlers who migrated early from Sweden to the small town of High Chaparral."
