Lotte World in Seoul

Lotte World Korea is a great option visit a South Korea amusement park located centrally in Seoul. It has a massive indoor section as pictured below, with over 50 fantastic themed rides – as a result Lotte World theme park can be visited all year round.

The outside area of Lotte World has their great castle (does it remind you of anything?) and a great selection of newer rides to enjoy. You can easily visit for a half or full day and have a great time. Lotte World Adventure Park is located beside Lotte Tower, which also has a massive shopping centre and observation deck.

Klook has great options to purchase a one day pass which includes entry to their folk musem, and also options to add skip the queue passes for either one or three attractions – a very worthwhile addition as the park can get very busy!

You can easily get to Lotte World on Subway Line 2, which is the circle route around central Seoul. See the below map for more details.

Everland Seoul

Everland Resort Korea is the world’s 7th largest theme park, and is definitely worth a visit – plan to spend the whole day and evening there, as it is located a 1 to 1.5 hour drive south from Seoul. It also has a water park alongside called Caribbean Bay and a zoo. Each night there are fireworks so make sure you stay to enjoy the show.

Pre COVID19 you could purchase packages including a Q-Pass, which enabled you to skip the queue on major rides – a very worthwhile purchase. Right now I have not been able to find that they are still available, but I am sure they will return once tourism increases.

While you can catch public transport to get to and from Everland South Korea, we recommend that instead, you purchase entry tickets with return transfers – that way you can travel direct which is much simpler.
