Lotte World (롯데월드) – Songpa-gu (송파구), Seoul, South Korea

What to do and see in Lotte World, South Korea. Great video highlights of the rides and adventures we had!

“Lotte World opened on July 12, 1989. It was registered in the
Guinness World Records as the largest indoor theme
park in the world on 1995. Moreover, it is regarded as one
of the world’s best theme parks along with Disneyland in
the US and Japan (one of the world’s TOP 10 theme
parks selected by Forbes Magazine). It is visited by over 8
million customers on the average in a year, and the
number of total visitors since its opening in July 1989
passed the 90 million mark.”

The day we visited the park it was hot humid and also raining! Thankfully this park has many rides indoors ;). We found though that the entrance fee we purchased didn’t give us full access to every single ride. I remember the Haunted House cost more money for us to go on. Some of my friends chose to and said it was very interactive and they certainly squealed a lot. I think that was one of the only ones that wasn’t covered. I suggest check the Lotte World facebook page before you go as we had a special deal if we liked their facebook page and could receive 30% off the ticket price!

One thing that will be difficult for foreigners is the stories that accompany all of the rides are in Korean. I’m not sure if at the information booth there are small translation devices that you can carry with you like other places I visited.

The rides outside are a lot more fun then the indoor more kid focused rides. Highlights indoors that you can’t miss are the Giant Loop/French Revolution and Flume Ride.

Outdoor I loved, loved loveeeddd Atlantis, Comet Express and Bungee drop.

  2. Cool pics! I’ve definitely seen this place in dramas. Actually — I didn’t realize it was the same place because some were inside and some were outside. Looks like tons of fun either way! 🙂
