Amusement parks
While they can’t compare to the large empires of Disney World or Universal Studios, Korea does have two amusement parks included in the top 20 theme parks in the world. Everland is Korea’s largest theme park, and Lotte World is the world’s largest indoor theme park. Both parks offer a plethora of attractions and performances, as well as festivals, drawing in both Koreans and tourists alike.

    Fall at a 77-degree angle on the T-Express. When arriving at Everland, the first thing you’ll want to do is get in line for the T-Express. The waiting line can be anywhere from a few hours to half a day! You might be wondering what makes it worth all that time. Opened in 2008, the T-Express was Korea’s first wooden rollercoaster. The ride lasts approximately three minutes, with the cart reaching a maximum speed of 104 kilometers-per-hour, and 12 sections of airtime, where riders will feel they are flying out of their seats! The coaster starts out from a point 56 meters above the ground, the height of a 20-story apartment building! The biggest thrill is the 77-degree angle drop. While the ride may be terrifying the first time, it has an addictive quality, with many people coming back again and again to ride it! Before you wait in line, make sure you meet the height requirements! You must be between 130 and 195 centimeters to ride the T-Express.

    Legend among Vikings, two-story pirate ship ride at Wolmido If you enjoy pirate ship-type rides, you HAVE to try the Viking ship at Wolmi Theme Park. Among the 30 rides at the park in Incheon, the Viking Ship is the star. It stands out from other similar rides by being two-stories, for added thrill. At its climax, the ends of the ship stand at a nearly 110-degree angle, so scary people say your scream freezes up inside you. Another scary element is the creaking sound. If you can handle the scare factor, sit in the end rows for views of Incheon Bridge, Yeongjongdo Island, and the surrounding seaside.

    Have a “Horror Halloween” at Lotte World For a fully immersive scary atmosphere, visit Lotte World for their Horror Halloween festival! During the festival period, the entire theme park is filled with scary decorations and photo zones. Starting at 7 PM, the indoor lighting changes to red tones, and the horror performances begin. Guests dressed in costumes mingle with performers appearing as zombies for a fun Halloween party. Don’t forget to look up at Magic Castle outside on Adventure Island. The castle façade serves as the screen for the 3D media show, Magic Castle Rise Up. This year, the Halloween festival aims to provide many untact activities, including photo zones and performances to decrease the amount of human interactions.
