The sleeping room, has about 50 beach chaises and 10 jade beds. Temperatures in the room remain warm and air purifiers provide clean oxygen, making it a comforting and healthy environment for nap. Visitors can also rent large-sized towels here.

Swimsuits and water caps are mandatory inside Caribbean Bay and can be rented from June to August. Safety vests are also a requirement within the wave pool as it generates 8ft (2.4m) waves and frequent collisions happen!

seoul-land-korea.jpg

Seoul Land is Korea’s first theme park, with a beautiful scenery surrounded by Cheonggyesan Mountain. Seoulland has an area called ‘World Square’ where one can glimpse traditional architecture and folk items from all over the world. You can view the traditional Korea at Samcheonri Hill, the western frontier at Model Land, and Fantasy Land.About 300,00sqm of the park is dedicated to green space!

There are five theme based areas that make up Seoulland: Adventure Land, Tomorrow Land, Fantasy Land, World Plaza, and Samuchili Hill (Thousand Mile Hill); withthin them there are over 40 rides and a variety of rollercoasters such as Space Cruise, Black Hole 2000, Galaxy Train, Rapid Current Ride, Magic Carpet, as well as Adventure Theater, Movie Theater, Story Land, and many more. It may be smaller than Everland, but closer to Seoul with smaller queues.

A special kids zone contains height-based attractions such as Mini Viking, Frog Hopper, a Merry-Go-Round, and other thrills for those under 130cm. A large coin-operate arcade called “Game Zone” is also sure to be a hit with shoot-em-up games and opportunities to win large, plushy prizes.

The pride of Seoulland is  its unique evening LED Laser Lights Show held during the evening and its many seasonal festivals offered throughout the year. The Tulip Festival is held April-May; the Starlight Rose Festival July-August; the Chrysanthemum Festival September- October; and the Snow Light Festival from December-February.

We really like the variety of dining options here, its a good mix between familiar franchises and cafes as well as park-operated theme restaurants. Within the park’s walls you can find two Lotteria locations and a Cafe Bene. Three traditional Korean food restaurants, a Indian food cafe, and fast-food American and Japanese too.
