Everland Resort in South Korea (Part 1)

On our third day in Korea, we set off for Everland Resort, South Korea's ultimate theme park destination. We rode the subway to the bus station and rode a bus for an hour or so up the mountain where Everland is located. I was actually standing the whole time since the bus was full! :p

Yay! Thanks Frannywanny for this group shot!

We arrived around noon so it was time for lunch. We went in the nearest dining hall, Venezia Restaurant. I was surprised to find that it was spacious and nearly empty unlike the overcrowded Disneyland eateries. I guess it's because we went on a weekday. :)

We each ordered a meal set. Hubby and daughter had Shrimp with Hamburg Steak and Rice. It was served with a side salad and a bowl of mushroom soup. It was huge and it cost around P400+.

The first attraction we visited was Pororo 3D Adventure. Pororo is a very popular penguin character in Korea. There are toys, snacks, drinks, and a whole lot of merchandise devoted to Pororo.

We watched a short skit in Korean before we were ushered into the movie theater. The 3D movie was in Korean too luckily the plot was pretty self-explanatory.

We exited the attraction via the Pororo Gift Shop!

We then rode the chair lift to cross over to Everland Resort's Zootopia.

There are also land animals like monkeys. We wanted to go to Safari World but the line was so long we passed it up.

Everland Resort is something like 4-5x the size of Hong Kong Disneyland.

We watched an animal show involving a lot of birds. The parrot spoke in Korean too!

My hubby the daredevil rode that sadistic-looking roller coaster called the T Express which had something like a 10-storey drop at a 77-degree angle.

We also went in the Mystery Mansion, a ride which involves using laser guns to shoot ghosts. Thanks again to Frannywanny for this photo!

Walking around Everland is enjoyable too as there are a lot of nice sights.

We were lucky we chanced upon the Tulip Festival so there were all sorts of tulips all over the park!

I didn't know tulips came in so many colors!

We actually stayed until night time in order to catch the Moonlight Parade and the Dream of Laciun laser and fireworks show but I'll show them to you in the next post. :D
