Lotte World is a major recreation complex in Seoul, South Korea, which consists of the world’s largest indoor theme park (Lotte World Adventure), an outdoor amusement park (Lotte World Magic Island), an artificial island inside a lake linked by monorail, shopping malls, a luxury hotel, a Korean folk museum, sports facilities, and movie theaters.
We planned our visit to Lotte World Adventure on a rainy weekday so that we could still enjoy the day with some indoor fun and less crowded!
- Purchase your ticket in advance via klook website and save almost 60%!
- You will receive the ticket via email in the form of e-voucher. You can present either a printed or mobile voucher to the ticket counter at the park to redeem the actual ticket.
- Take note that the single-day ticket purchased through Klook is valid for a stated date period.
As Lotte World Adventure is indoor, the park makes greater use of the vertical space. It’s 45+ attractions features a range of rides to serve every age group. There are the kiddy ones, such as the Lotty Train (tour around the adventure in a small train), Swing Pang Pang (exciting bouncing with Lotty & his friends), and Magic Boong Boong Car (explore the magical cookie forest on a spinning car). There are rides for the entire family too, such as the spinning Drunken Basket and the Aeronauts Balloon Ride that travels along the ceiling around the park. Thrilling rides like the Giant Loop is something for those who enjoy going upside down!
There is also the standard amusement park stuff like a carousel and bumper cars. Some rides are not included in the park ticket and would require you to pay extra on the spot, such as the Ghost House which we gave it a miss since our little one is not keen on haunted house stuff :p
In the middle and two floor beneath the first floor is the ice skating rink which also requires separate entry ticket.
An all Korean girls’ Scottish piper band marched by in the afternoon which amazed us as they were really good!
No theme park is complete without a parade even if it is an indoor one! Lotte World is known for its themed festivals and performances all year-round. We saw masked performers danced and sang to music in a Mask Festival when we were there in Febraury. During summer, dancers can be seen at the Rio Samba Carnival dressed in vibrantly colored outfits. In autumn, visitors can become friends with ghost at the Happy Halloween Party and winter brings the Happy Christmas Parade.
We had fun at Lotte World Adventure and will surely visit the park again for the other attractions, such as the outdoor Magic Island, the Folk Museum, Lotte World Aquarium and many more!
