Famous theme park, colourful and lively
not much to see in the City Proper
Gd only if you you're a kid at heart
Now if you're going to Everland on your own, do yourself a favour and visit the theme park website to print yourself a discount voucher. You'll save 2,000 won on the usual 33,000 won entrance fee. For kids below 13, you pay 22,000 ( after a discount). I've provided the weblink, haha. Alternatively, visit the Korean National Tourism Office in your...more
this is a continuation of our everland trip and here we are at zootopia, watching different species of animals and enjoying the animal show (caveat: the animal show is in korean so have an interpreter in there while watching!). the animal show features several acts and skits with a parody of peter pan and it lasts for 20 minutes.more

Around 9pm at the flower garden area, there is a huge stage with very good performance plus laser show and fireworks display. Go there earlier and get a good seat as it will be very crowded when the show starts. More photos are at the travelogue section of this VT page.more
There are many different types of rides in the theme park, ranging from roller coaster, viking, ferris wheel etc. The important thing to note is to know you own capability because some of these rides can be very scary. Most of these rides open until at night when the park closes around 10pm.more
There are many restaurants and eateries at Yongin Everland, ranging from fast food chains like Burger King to local restaurants, Japanese food, steak house etc. You have quite a lot of choices so don't worry.
Because Yongin Everland closes around 10pm, there are lots of night activities and the various colourful lights of the theme park are very nice.
If you want to take buses from Seoul to Yongin, then you need to go to the Seoul Express Bus Terminal. The timetable, price and other information about the bus services are available at the following website. The buses are generally comfortable, try to pay more and take the better class buses.more
Honestly speaking, getting here is a bit of pain as Yongin is some distance away from Seoul. But it's not all that difficult. All you need to do is to proceed to Dong Seoul Bus Terminal (Gangbyeon Station (Seoul Subway Line No.2), Exit 4 ), purchase a bus ticket from the many counters there and take an express bus bound for Everland (1 hour ride)....more
Korean skiers and snowboarders do not give alot of room to people around them. Thus, there are alot of accidents. In my opinion this is due to their culture. Alot of people living very close to one another. They are just used to being close together. The dangerous part is that it leads too way to many impacts. Also beware of the people that just...more
If you want your potrait to be drawn, there is an artist who draws portriats located inside Yongin Everland near the main entrance. His drawings are quite impressive and each potrait cost $9,000 Korean won.
Favorite thing: One of my impressive memories is the brilliant usage of water and lightings in Yongin Everland to create a very artistic environment which is very beautiful. Examples are shown in the photographs.
