I am an Amusement Park junkie. I love the roller-coasters, cotton candy, and rides that dangle me from altitudes men weren't supposed to be at without a plane or a mountain under them. Despite the fact that it has the look and feel of Disneyworld, it is actually a really enjoyable park.
The most impressive part of Lotte World for me was the indoor park. But my favorite thing is the Atlantis Adventure Roller Coaster. It is a theme roller coaster (With a bit of water) that actually has some speed and jolts to it, in addition to the incredible scenery. If you want a coaster with more thrill to it though, check out The French Revolution in the indoor part of the park. It is quick and is a nice ride with a loop and some spirals to it. Gyro Drop is another favorite, if for no other reason than the great view of Seoul from atop it.
Kids will not feel left out either. There are plenty of kid friendly activities, and family food places so that the whole family can enjoy it.
If you have kids or really, really miss Disneyland Lotte World is about as close as you'll come in Seoul/Korea. Methinks the designers had a few trips to the Disney, Six Flags and such parks before making it. There is a castle/Euro theme and you'll notice all of the characters are similar yet different from those you'll remember as a child. There's Lorry (the male one) and Lottie (the female one) and a few others.
Lotte World has 2 parts: indoors, where it's covered by a massive roof (suspended 60 feet in the air) filled with rides, food and a neat cave-like videogame arcade; and outdoor where a (you guessed it) castle and more rollercoaster/scary rides reside.
Plan to spend about 100,000 won (USD83) a person for the complete experience. Also attached is Lotte department store, Lotte (discount) Mart and Lotte Hotel (across the street they're also makign Lotte Castle Gold apartment buildings.
Lotte world is a big giant theme park. I had a good time there. It would be a great place for someone who has kids ( and lots of money to spend ) But i has a number or rides that were pretty good. There is also a ice skating ring, but it looks alittle hard to skate with about a thousand people on the ice. Another cool place to vist in korea.
As most of the attractions are indoor, this is a place for family entertainment despite cold or hot weather outside. It is a multi-complex for shopping, sports, theme park and even a folk village.
Open daily, 9:30am -11pm.
Lotte World is like a small city with an amusement park, folk museum, sports center, skating rink, water slide park, shopping center and the hotel.
Most facilities are indoors, so they can be enjoyed throughout the year. The central area is open, so that people can watch the other people ice skating, enjoying the rides, eating and shopping.
Lotte World, houses an indoor theme park, lake park, shopping mall, folk museum, swimming pool, ice rink, sports centre, hotel and department store. In the folk museum, you can get an overall glimpse of the 5.000-year-long Korean history through various miniature and life-size models.
Lotte bills its World Adventure amusement park as the world's largest indoor theme park. The park has rides for everyone in the family, ranging from tranquil tram rides to exhilarating roller coasters. In addition to rides, the park has several shows each day and costumed characters that roam around.
Indoor amusement park is more suited for family whilst the outdoor theme rides are more for those thrill seekers.
Hours: 09:30 ~ 23:00
Lotte World is a gigantic mall that houses an amusement park, folk museum, sports center, skating rink, water slide park, shopping center and hotel. The indoor amusement park area is 82,650 square meters of roller coasters, swings, and other rides. Outside is a castle much like the one at Disneyland and the bigger rides.
The most fun ride is the Gyro Drop which drops you 70m in a twisting free-fall at a speed of 100km/h. I like the skating rink too but don't do it on a weekend as you'll be avoiding a mass of Korean bodies squirming around on the ice.
What I found interesting was the "Traditional Korean Parade." I thought that this was going to be a really tacky show but it turned out to be fascinating. There were tons of traditional dresses, people beating on drums, dragons, etc. It was actually pretty worthwhile.
A full admission price with full use of the rides is 30,000 won although if you go after 5pm it falls to 26,000 won.
Lotte World is one of Seoul's main theme park and its attracts about 8 million visitors annually. The park is divided into an indoor and outdoor linked by a monorail. The indoor includes the 'Adventure Land' with acres of streets representing different countries and are filled with hundreds of activities, entertainments, shops, restaurants and ongoing parades. There is also an ice-rink and a fascinating Folk Museum complete with miniature villages.
The outdoor Magic Island with its fairy-tale looking castle, offers visitors thrilling high-altitude rides, laser shows and pleasant walking trails around a lake.
Opening time: Daily 9.30am to 11pm
30,000 won (adults)
26,000 won (youths 13-18)

we heard that lotte world was really popular in korea so we decided to go there eventhough it was quite a distance from the city. we weren't really expecting much (i guess that comes from already having been to a lot of amusement parks) but it still turned out to be a pleasantly surprising trip. lotte world is composed of lotte world adventure, magic island and the lotte world folk museum. lotte world adventure is an indoor theme park while magic island was surrounded by a "lake". the museum was very interesting and i suggest for you not to miss it. they had on display miniature pieces of korean folkmen and villages and the attention to detail was simply superb. in terms of the theme park there's really not much difference with other theme/amusement parks what with the standard rides and attractions. so if you're tired of that i really suggest you go to the folk museum. its worth your while.
if you're planning on doing and seeing everything in lotte world allot a day for it.
the price of tickets aren't cheap but discount coupons are available.
from the indoor theme park you can enter magic island with an adventure admission ticket.
operating hours is from 9:30am - 11:00pm and is open all year round.
