Everland

Last week, Domingos had a training holiday, so we decided to check out the amusement park Everland. We got a package of tickets + transportation, so we met our bus outside of at Dongdaemun station at 10am and set off for a day of fun.

Everland has a lot of animals, and in the first section of the park it was pretty heartbreaking to see them. None of them seemed to have very much room and that’s hard to see.

In the next section, we waited in a long line for what turned out to be a “safari” in a duckboat-type bus. It was pretty cool, actually, and the animals seemed to be in a better environment.

After the animals, we grabbed some dumplings for lunch and checked out the impressive tulips in the garden.

It wouldn't be Korea without a photo op! This was quite the set-up, with a chaise sitting in the tulips and a platform to photograph from!

We waited in line for an hour to ride Everland’s wooden roller coaster, which was pretty awesome.

There was one other major coaster in the park, but it had an equally long line, so at that point we decided we were pretty much done and headed home. Public transportation took a while – 5 different train lines – but we were still home well ahead of when the bus would have gotten us back if we’d had to wait for it. All in all, a fun day, but tiring. I wish there had been a few more good coasters and that the lines had not been so long.
