One would like to write that we invite you to the land of Mai’s Bee, but we do not want to pigeonhole Majaland as a place ONLY for young children. Because older children and even adults will also find attractions for themselves in Majaland. The only question that remains is whether it’s worth paying almost £100 for admission? ;-)
We visited Majaland Kownaty in the middle of the vacations, which is the worst possible time ;) However, in order to minimize the risk of crowds on site, we went to the amusement park in the middle of the week. Was it a good idea?
We don’t have a comparison to the weekend, but being Thursday, we didn’t have giant queues for attractions and food outlets, so it wasn’t too bad from that angle. Of course, there were queues, a few times we even waited 15 minutes each for some rides, but as a rule it was no more than 10 minutes. And here, fans of large amusement parks will probably rise with enthusiasm and start planning a trip to Kownat ;) After all, what is these 10 minutes compared to the 30 or even an hour you have to stand off in Energylandia!
Well, you have to admit that standing 30 minutes in line with adults is definitely more pleasant than among young children, who do not particularly like to stand still. And let’s remember, however, that younger visitors are Majaland’s target audience.

Majaland – actually for whom is it a good option?
Well, just who is Majaland really for?
As written above, we would not like Majaland to be identified only with an amusement park for the youngest. Fact, the bulk of the attractions are for children, but there are also plenty for the elderly, and even a few for adults.
As in other amusement parks, in Majaland too, instead of writing about the age of children, it is better to write about their height. Individual attractions have height restrictions: some can be entered by toddlers with a guardian, and some only by people over a specific height. 1.4 meters is the magic limit at which all attractions already stand open, and 1.2 meters height guarantees really super fun.
During our visit to Majaland, our children were about 95 cm and 115 cm, and even though the older one didn’t catch the cooler ceiling, she still had maximum fun on the spot ;) Probably those 5 centimeters would have given even more fun, but still the day was filled with attractions in Majaland to the brim.
The younger one did not complain either :) There are rides where you jump in with a guardian, although the choice was definitely smaller. However, it is worth remembering that there are also playgrounds (including a water playground), a monkey grove, and a pool with balls to make the stay more pleasant for toddlers (unfortunately, due to the pandemic, they were closed during our visit).
We were almost to the very end, so if you are going with children a little taller (over 1.2 m) it is worth being really early in the morning to have plenty of time to enjoy every attraction.
Looking with the eye of an adult, without children, it’s not such an attractive place. There are 2-3 more powerful rides, but the vast majority are more for children and teenagers. Nevertheless, riding along with the children, an adult also has a chance to have a good time.
Perhaps you’d be interested in descriptions of other theme parks we’ve been to?
We recommend in particular:
– Illusion Farm
– Magic Gardens
– Julinek Amusement Park
– JuraPark Krasiejów
– Clement’s Orchards
Majaland is divided into several thematic zones. Some of them are covered and some are outdoors.
To begin with, let’s start with those inside. At the very center is a wide and very slow carousel. Just in time for the beginning if you are traveling with a toddler to rock. Older kids may get bored ;)
Fortunately, there are many more attractions besides the boring indoor carousel: there’s a chain carousel, a slide, frog and butterfly carousels and even a rollercoaster! On top of that, there are bodies of water on which you can sail in small boats (by the way, the boat motif appears repeatedly in this section), there is a stage, a playground for toddlers, a monkey grove and a ball pool (the latter two closed in the pandemic).
The covered area also has a restaurant, ice cream, restrooms, lockers and a gift store.
Let’s move on to the outdoor area, which is divided into themed zones: the first is the one most related to Maja the Bee, the second is more Viking-themed, the latest with Super Wings and then there’s the wooden rollercoaster at the edge. This particular rollercoaster (Werewolf) is from 1.40 meters and is one of the coolest attractions for those older visitors.
The older ones are also sure to enjoy the Viking land with a Viking boat spinning above the entrance. Here you can fight a Water Battle by sailing boats and shooting water at unsuspecting passersby or other ships.
The latest Super Wings zone is an opportunity to soar into the air and control the flight with wings – the bravest even manage to do a 360-degree turn! Plus, there’s a water playground with slides, bridges and fountains. There are changing rooms on site, but unfortunately we warn you that even on a hot day, the water in the pool is almost icy.
The largest part is dedicated to Mai’s Bee but not only. Attention is drawn to the large and noisy carousel of flowers, on top of which is the title character. Next to him waits another character – grasshopper Philip, who invites you to jump on his back and ride through the meadow. Nearby there is still Gucci’s playground although it has little to do with Gucci himself (but it is very cool).
And that’s it for May attractions, but not the end of attractions in general ;) Children can ride cars through a mini traffic town, play fireman or try to climb to the top of the volcano.
Catering in Majaland
There are several food outlets on site, so you won’t go hungry. Admittedly, the selection is not mind-blowing and rather standard dishes and snacks dominate, but the important thing is that you can at least sit down for a while.
The largest restaurant is inside the buildings, opposite the entrance. Here is also the largest selection of dishes (dumplings, pork chops, fries, etc.). Outside, there are two places where you can sit at tables and booths where you can buy hot dogs, casseroles, ice cream, etc.
Unfortunately, price-wise it is quite expensive, for example, a hot dog or casserole is about 15-20 zlotys.
An important note – don’t leave the food for the very end. By the time it closes, many dishes are simply gone and the selection is very limited.
Majaland – ticket prices
That being said, now that it’s clear what’s on the ground, here’s a question – how much do tickets to Majaland cost?
Prices depend on the height of the visitor and the season in which one wants to visit Majaland.
A child under 85 centimeters in height enters for a symbolic zloty, and children between 85 cm and 99 cm for 49.99 zloty.
Those over a meter in height pay PLN 79.99 in the low season, i.e. from November to March, or PLN 99.99 in the other months.
Tickets can be purchased online with the exception of the ticket for the smallest child, so if you are traveling with one you will still have to go to the ticket office to pay that PLN.
Counting a family of four, a visit to Majaland is an expense of almost 400 zloty! And you might think it’s a staggering price, but on the other hand, we have a lot of activities on site, and the kids will have fun all day and won’t want to leave.

However, we have a cool tip for you to make the cost of entry to Majaland cheaper. It’s worth looking at tickets on other sites like Groupon or Parkmania. We bought through the latter service and saved 40 zloty on each ticket over one meter, so a total of 120 zloty ahead ;)
Majaland opening hours
Majaland is open during the following hours:
- 10.00 – 18.00 (high season)

However, it is always worth checking the opening hours on the Majaland website in advance.
Access and parking
Majaland is located in the village of Kownaty, in Lubuskie Province, on the A2 highway, about 40 kilometers from the German border (it should be added that this is quite a popular place among our western neighbors).
Currently, access is only possible by car or bus.
Taking the A2 highway towards the border, take the Torzym exit and head north (about 4 kilometers).
There is a large paid parking lot on site. The price for the whole day is 12 zloty, payable at the Majaland ticket office.

Is it worth visiting Majaland? Our opinion
How do we rate our stay in Majaland? For children it is definitely a super place, to which we will still be happy to return yes in 3-4 years, when our kids reach the magic 120 cm ;) We were expecting everything related somehow to the title Maya, but fortunately this is not the case.
However, we regret that a place like Majaland is so far away, and let’s not kid ourselves, but for most of you it’s just too far. We even have the impression that this park
Would we have come here without the children? Definitely not ;) The place is prepared for families with children, and the traction stronger for adults is far too little to pay almost 100 zloty per ticket.
