Lotte World Tips (31)

Lotte World

Lotte World, in addition to an outdoor amusement park, a mall, a Korean folk village, an indoor ice rink, and a lake, boasts the largest indoor amusement park in the world. The park opened in 1989 and hosts over 7 million visitors per year.

There are rides for people of all ages, from the simple Aeronauts balloon ride that take you high above the indoor park to two high-speed roller coasters. Our child loved the balloon ride, the monorail, the Lotty Train, and some of the kids rides.

The price is about 44,000 Won per adult.

Located at Jamsil Station.

Lotte World

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

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.

Lotte World

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

Lotte World has excellent food court at the basement. There are plenty to choose from whether you like Japanese or Korean food. This place is huge with hotel, theme park, duty free shops, shopping mall, museum, etc... The indoor theme park can be a more convenient alternative to Everland which is outdoor & quite far from the city. So for convenience, choose Lotte World but for attractions choose Everland if you don't mind the distance plus the subway/bus trip lasting around 2 hours.
Opens 9:30AM-11PM.

Lotte World

Tourists in Seoul may wonder how to spend their evenings. One of the most recommended spots is Lotte World, which is open day and night all year round. At night, it is open from 5 pm to 11 pm.
An indoor theme park connected with Lotte Hotel and Lotte Department Store, Lotte World is the Korean recreation center most frequently visited by foreigners. Lotte World consists of the indoor amusement park “Adventure” and an outdoor one as well, dubbed “Magic Island.” The outdoor Magic Island has numerous, thrill-packed attractions. Even the castle itself is an awesome background for photographs. At the indoor facility, “Adventure,” the World Carnival Parade is held from 7:30 pm to 8 pm and the Cosmos Circus Laser Show at 9:30 pm. Of the two, the World Carnival Parade is particularly eye-catching. KNTO programmers Heo Seok and Ko Young-shin, and Spanish expert Seo Se-a filed this report after visiting Lotte World one night.

Amusement adrenaline in Lotte

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

korea's disneyland

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.
