Seoul Sky, set to be the third highest observation deck in the world, will open April 4. The observatory is located on the upper floors (117-123F) of Seoul’s tallest building, Lotte World Tower. Seoul Sky is designed with the concept of “The Beauty and Pride of Korea."
Even before opening, Seoul Sky is drawing in attention by breaking three Guinness World Records. The sky deck on the 118 Floor will be the “world’s highest glass-floored observation deck.” The Sky Shuttle elevator is being recorded as both the fastest double-deck elevator, with a speed of 600 meters per minute, and the elevator covering the longest distance.
Visitors can board the elevator to Seoul Sky from the lobby levels on B1 and B2. Seoul Sky will provide a complete view of the entire city through the glass walls on all sides. On clear days, visitors will be able to see as far as Songdo, Incheon and the Yellow Sea.
