    When traveling abroad, some of us are interested in amusement center. This is why we have visited Universal Studio and Disneyland in some countries. Seoul the capital of South Korea has Lotte World Theme Park. We purchased the ticket online through Korealtrip, a third party, for KRW 29,000 (about 29 dollars). By the time it was the cheapest online ticket price offered by a third party.

    Most of the facilities here are rides both physical rides such as flying swing chair, carousel, pirate ship, and roller coaster, and also 4D rides with moving chair. Not everyone can be admitted to the rides. Young kids under certain height and old people above 65 are not allowed to enter. I can understand that they have only one type of seats for adults and hence very young kids cannot be seated for security reason. But people above 65 may well be very healthy to enjoy the rides, the 4D rides in particular. Therefore they should not limit people solely by their age. Moreover older visitors above 65 do not get any discount to enter the park when purchasing the ticket online through a third party.

    Although we went there on a working day, later in the afternoon more people were around. You could end up waiting for 40 minutes in certain queues. Someone could cut the queue by showing their magic pass which can be purchased at an additional cost. To avoid long queues, it is better if you arrive early. There is a disadvantage for visiting the park on weekdays because some venues do operate only on weekends.

    Unlike other amusement parks, Lotte World has both indoor rides which, I think, occupied 80% of the types of the rides, and outdoor rides. It is claimed to be the world largest indoor amusement park. I can agree that, and I think it will help visitors to keep Another thing that people should know is that the admission fee does not cover every ride in the park. To use certain facilities, you have to purchase the admission ticket separately. Examine ticket condition before purchase.

    There are several food courts within this huge theme park. Finding them is not easy. The map of the park does not clearly identify their location. I found them by chance. The positive thing is that they have menu in English and the price starts from KRW 8,000 which, I think, is reasonable.

  • Lotte World Theme Park
  • South Gate. The ticket box here is only for those purchasing tickets by cash or cards. To redeem your tickets purchased online, go inside to the left and show your voucher.

  • Lotte World Theme Park
  • Indoor park. There are plenty of rides within this area which can keep you comfortable from hot summer or cold winter. All rides are in operation regardless to the weather.

  • Lotte World Theme Park
  • Outdoor park. There are a number of rides within this area. My standard ticket allows me to enter both indoor and outdoor parks with a few exceptions which require additional cost to be admitted.

  • Lotte World Theme Park
  • Special entrance for magic pass holders. You can cut a very long queue by purchasing a magic pass. I did not do that, and still get a queue that is not too long in many rides simply by visiting Lotte Park on a weekday.

  • Lotte World Theme Park
  • Menu list in a restaurant within the park. They have menu in English which helps foreigners to select their food. Moreover many waitresses speak English in food court areas.

    Compared to Universal Studio and Disneyland, Lotte World theme park has an advantage in that they have much larger indoor park enabling people to continue using the facilities even in bad weather. But in term of types of rides, Lotte World has less facility. All announcement and information are made in Korean only. The nearest MRT station is Jamsil, and take Exit 3 to access the South Gate.
