Who does not like theme parks? Either you are going with your significant other or family, visiting a theme park can be an excellent way to spend some time together. South Korea is also known for its awesome theme parks, and two of the most popular theme parks here are Lotte Theme Park and Everland. Of course, all of us want to visit both, but don’t worry if you can only visit one at the moment. Below, we will break down the comparisons between Lotte Theme Park and Everland to help you choose!
We will start by seeing the locations of both theme parks. Lotte Theme Park is located in Sincheon-dong, Seoul. To be more precise, Lotte Theme Park is situated near the Jamsil Station, which means that it can be conveniently reached by using public transportation. Due to the location, it is very easy to reach. On the other hand, Everland resides in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do. The place is much farther, and may take more than an hour to be reached from the center of the city. As the effect, Everland may not be a perfect choice if you have just limited time available.
Indoor vs. Outdoor
The next difference is that Lotte Theme Park is indoor, whereas Everland is outdoor. As a matter of fact, Lotte Theme Park is holding a Guinness World Record as the world’s largest indoor theme park, featuring four floors of various adventures with lots of attractions. Connected to the indoor theme park by a monorail is the Magic Island outdoor amusement park. It is an artificial island surrounded by a lake. There are also a luxury hotel, shopping malls, sports facilities, movie theaters, and a museum in the complex.
On the other hand, though, Everland is South Korea’s largest theme park. Along with the main attractions, Everland also has a zoo and the Carribean Bay water park. There are various themed areas, consisting of the Global Fair, ZooTopia, European Adventure, Magic Land, and American Adventure.
Lines are an inescapable part of the theme park experience. Both are very likely to have long lines during weekends and holidays, but Lotte Theme Park may seem to be more crowded due to the smaller area. There is the Magic Pass app that you can download to be used as a fast pass in Lotte Theme Park. On the other hand, Everland has the Q Pass, a first-come-first-served on-site reservation system.
