From Beomgye station on Line 4, it took us more than two hours to get to the Resort. So be prepared, and if you’re on your own bring headphones, Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ Album (its a winner) and maybe even a small picnic, oh...and leave early. After this epic journey which included 3 changes, 4 trains and a free shuttle Bus from the station to the park, we finally arrived at our destination. People charged towards the entrance in hope of the small possibility that running would improve their chances of getting in quicker. Luckily for us foreigners, we have our very own booth, and so the queue was only about 10 minutes long! Win! When we reached the desk we also found that foreigners get a discount too...just for...well just for being foreigners. So it ended up costing us 34,000won (approx £17) as oppose to 48,000won.
Just great news!Once our tickets were purchased and our high fives received, we were then ready to start our mini adventure at South Korea’s largest theme park. The park has all of the standard things that theme parks usually have and MORE! There are rides galore, a Zoo, and even a water park known as Caribbean Bay. We started off by hitting up some of the bigger roller coasters which were pretty awesome. One of which (apparently one of the world’s largest wooden roller coasters) was ‘The T-Express’. Unfortunately, as the queue was approximately 2 hours long (and that was just to reserve your tickets for later) we decided to pass on this one, and not spend our entire day queuing. Terrible news.
One of the words biggest wooden roller coaster in the background there!
They were definitely friendly!
Sea Lion show!
Orangutan tight roping!
The end of the day soon arrived and so we prepared ourselves for the long journey home, over a quick bite to eat. In the end, this journey was totally worth it and I had a lovely ole day out. If you're worried about the language barrier, don't be. Everything at Everland is in English aswell as Korean, which makes it all a hell of a lot easier. I would definitely recommend this theme park as one of the places you should visit whilst living in, or visiting South Korea, so go and check it out. Oh, and remember to bring your ARC card or Passport for the foreigner discount...as you certainly don't want to miss out on that one!
Bye for now Everland!
