Yongma Land, a small abandoned and dilapidated amusement park near Mangu Station, has been on my must-visit list for a while. I finally made it there this week, and it was worth the wait!
The owner charges 5,000 won to enter the park, and it looks like he lives on the premises. We thought we might have to call the cell phone number listed on the sign in front (and I had read that the owner speaks no English at all), but as soon as we got to the entrance, he popped out of his home and took our money, waving us inside.
The park is eerie and wonderful – broken-down rides, abandoned bumper cars, peeling paint, piles of junk… I couldn’t pare my photos down enough, so here’s the full gallery. Enjoy!
