[KOREA TRIP 2016] Lotte World Amusement Park

Hello there ~ Today I came to tell you guys about the 10th day of my trip to Seoul, South Korea. Click here if you haven't read the previous parts of my travel diary. On 10th day we visited the famous Lotte World amusement park which is located at Exit 4 of Jamsil Station.

We went there with a Malaysian girl who stayed at the same hostel with us and her Korean friend. We visited Lotte World on a weekday and we chose an after 4PM ticket as it was cheaper. The amusement park was open until 11PM so we had quite a lot of time to spend there. We also got a special discount as the Korean friend had some group discount card or something.

The first attraction we rode was Atlantis and it was no joke. I haven't been in amusement parks for ages and I'm a wimp who is scared of roller coasters, heights and everything. I can see why it's so popular. We had to wait almost an hour until we were able to ride the roller coaster. Anyhow Atlantis was super funny and I screamed my lungs out. I found a video about this on youtube and it made me feel as if I was riding the roller coaster again. You can watch the video below.

I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad that Gyro Drop was closed that day due to the wind so we couldn't ride that. I think I'm more happy than sad. As I mentioned, I'm scared of heights and that thing just looks way too high :'Dd I would probably be dead now if we had rode that....

After spending a while outside and checking out the rides we wanted to see we went to inside. Lotte World also has an inside amusement park - something that we don't have in Finland. I found this really cool and I think that the rides inside were more meant for kids. But it's so cool to have an inside amusement park as it doesn't matter if it rains or not - you can still ride these.

I'm not sure if it's a daily or a weekly thing but Lotte World had this super cool parade before the closing. It was so beautiful and they finished the parade with fireworks - inside the amusement park. That's something that would never happen in Finland. After the parade finished we went back outside and went to few rides we didn't go earlier because there was too long queues. And then the park closed around 11PM and we headed back to our hostel.
