To celebrate turning one year older, I went to the largest theme park in South Korea – Everland! I am going to answer all of your burning WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and WHY questions from the fun-filled day. Let us begin:
WHO: Went to Everland with my friend Dev and stayed at an Airbnb in Seoul (Gangnam). We took the 5002 bus, which was luckily just outside our place. The ride was 45 minutes and took us straight to the theme park. The bus is the cheapest form of transportation from Seoul (around ₩2,000), but I advise going as early as possible to avoid standing the entire time, like we did.
WHAT: Everland is a magical place that holds the world record for having the steepest wooden roller coaster, T-Express (it has a slope of 77 degrees.. yikes!), and the prettiest gardens I ever did see.
WHERE: It is located in the city of Yongin, which is in the province of Gyeonggi-do (same province as Seoul!).
WHEN: My birthday is in October so Everland was packed with spooky ghost and pumpkin decorations as well as a haunted house, located in “Horror Village.”
WHY: IT’S THE BEST WAY TO SPEND A BIRTHDAY! I told the man at the ticket booth it was my birthday and he gave Dev and I 30% off. That’s ₩15,000 off the original ticket price, each! If it’s not your birthday you can get 10% off if you’re a foreigner and have a boarding pass or a T-Money card. An original one-day ticket is ₩52,000.
If you want to see how my Everland-filled birthday went down, including Dev and I losing our voices while riding the T-Express, watch my latest vlog! FYI, I upload weekly vlogs of my life in South Korea and you haven’t SUBSCRIBED yet, come join the fun. 😉
