Mato Mainio is a steel kiddie roller coaster located at Vauhtipuisto in Finland. From 2000 to 2014, it operated as Karlo's Taxi at Djurs Sommerland in Nimtofte, Midtjylland, Denmark.

History

The ride originally opened at Djurs Sommerland in 2000 as part of the Lilleputland area. It closed with the area in 2014 to make way for the new Bondegårdsland kids area. Vilde Hønsejagt became the ride's spiritual succesor, with Traktorerne being build on the former spot of the ride. In 2015, it was relocated to Vauhtipuisto in Finland and renamed Mato Mainio.
