Seoul Day 5: Lotte World
240, Olympic-ro, Songpa-gu, Seoul | 09:30-22:00 (Nighttime admission: 16:00) | Jamsil Station (Line 2, 8), Exit 4.
Lotte World is a major entertainment complex consisting of the largest indoor theme park – “Lotte World Adventure” and outdoor theme park – “Magic Island”. And with our Korean Air tickets stubs (see full benefits here), we got 30% off full-day tickets!
It was a Tuesday and there was no queue at the ticketing booth. We brought our tickets easily and went in quickly. It’s a huge place but almost everything is easily in view and the first thing that caught our eyes is none other than the colourful hot-air balloons all over above us!
The Garden stage is one of the most prominent thing you will see. We were just in time to catch their afternoon performance, with “Wizard of Oz” characters and Peter Pan.
And see what we found!
But it doesn’t make any economical sense to pay to enter Pororo Park when we have already paid for Lotte World. So nope, we didn’t enter. We just wander around and play whatever rides that Baby E can play.
Which is basically another indoor playground with padding flooring and soft foam character structures. At one end is a small structure play and a shooting ball area. There are baby/nursing rooms inside as well. Baby E was simply climbing all over the structures and running/sliding. I think each session was 45 minutes, which after we had to come out for the next batch to enter.
Of course there are much more rides than these but not all are suitable for Baby E and we didn’t explore. Then we head outside while the sun is still shining bright to “Magic Island”, their outdoor theme park.
If Lotte World Adventures is suitable for Baby E, then Magic Island is the playground for Daddy E! With the huge rollercoaster to the Bungee Drop, most rides are for adults. Well, at least she had fun eating the cotton candy!
We went back indoor as the sun was setting and the breeze was getting colder. And we saw the brightly lit up carousel!
The best way to end a day of fun. 🙂
