Wasalandia's visitor number peaked in 1990 and suffered badly in 1999 after car ferry tourism from Sweden based on tax free alcohol sales stopped.

Wasalandia Amusement Park was an amusement park in Vaasa, Finland. It opened in 1988 and closed after summer 2015.[1] It offered up to 28 rides for the whole family. In its last years, Wasalandia was owned by the Spanish company Aspro Ocio, S.A.

Wasalandia was located on the island Vaskiluoto some 3 kilometres from downtown Vaasa. The nearby indoor waterpark Tropiclandia will continue its operations.
