Lotte World

Sure, we were in Seoul last year (November 2008), but we’re not done blogging about it yet!

During our trip, the Trio reserved a full day for fun at Lotte World to get in touch with our inner child. Gee, I haven’t been to an amusement park in over a decade. The last time the 3 of us went to one together was Pesta Port Dickson back when some of you reading this blog were still crawling around in your diapers and drooling all over the place. If you know Pesta PD way back then, you’d remember what crap it was.

Adventure Land in Lotte World.

Orchid planning which rides we should go on first.

Lotte World is divided into two sections – Adventure Land (an indoor park) and Magic Island (an outdoor park). Start your fun in Adventure Land and make your way to Magic Island then come back to Adventure Land by 9pm to catch the laser light show before leaving Lotte World.

Traditional dances and other performances at the open theater in Adventure Land.

Hmm, looks like we’re the only unaccompanied minors on this ride. ;p

One thing I noticed in Seoul – every bare wall must be inked!

So we joined in as well. While in Rome, do what the Romans do, right?
Note to self
: pack good quality markers on next trip to Seoul.

Rooster loves sideshows because they don’t make her puke.

Lotte World’s impressive laser light & fire show begins every night at 9pm.

I wouldn’t recommend putting Lotte World in your “must do” list when you visit Seoul unless you really want to. We put it on our list because, hey, we’re on holiday and we’re going to have fun!

What we spent:

  • Full day pass for one adult and entry to all rides: KRW31,500
  • Lunch at a burger stall: KRW25,000
  • Dinner at the Lotte World food court for 3: KRW12,000. Big portions and great for sharing.
  • Snacks: KRW1,000/box of really yummy buttered roasted squid.

Getting there:
From downtown Seoul metro, take the Green Line and stop at Jamsil station.
