If you have never been to Everland, then you simply cannot miss out on this wonderful amusement park located in Yongin, a city in the Gyeonggi-do Province. It is without a doubt one of the most enjoyable things you can do in South Korea, and an absolutely memorable experience of jubilation! Upon arrival you will be greeted by a scene straight out of a Disney movie, the gates to Everland.
The amusement park features a vast number of attractions, including Zootopia, which houses and exhibits more than 2,000 animals of 201 species! Their latest additions includes a pair of giant pandas, which was a gift from China to celebrate their 40th anniversary.
Furthermore Zootopia brings their guests on rides to get extremely up close and personal with the animals. With just the tour bus window separating you and the lions, tigers and even bears, it definitely will be an exhilarating experience. There are also a multitude of adorable critters included in their exhibitions, which is a given, of course!
Everland also held a rose festival in commemoration of their 40th anniversary in 2016 this year, and displayed a plethora of beautiful flowers. The amusement park is not only a place to enjoy during the day, it is also gorgeous at night! Feel free to stay until the entire park is lit up in an alluring array of colors.
The park will definitely be a favorite for couples too, just marvel at this romantic setup!
Everland definitely does not lack in the aesthetics department either, as one of their area zones, called European Adventure, brings you on a magical journey to Holland right there in South Korea! Featuring varying dazzling colors of tulips, replica housing modeled after European-style housing and also a windmill to the mix, the attraction makes for a jaw-dropping and picturesque view.
If you are a thrill-seeker, you will not be disappointed either as Everland offers heart-pumping rides such as the T-Express, Thunder Falls and the Rolling X-Train! Get ready to hold whatever you had for your previous meal down and jump straight to these rides! The T-Express is also Korea’s first wooden roller-coaster, but it can pack a punch as good as a modern roller-coaster too!
The only downside to Everland could be all the walking and the hills you have to hike to tour around the amusement park, and it really allows you to appreciate the enormity of the entire park, but what’s a little exercise when there’s so much fun to be had? You could just refill your energy with some of the scrumptious snacks sold there, or even a full meal at their exquisite restaurants and eateries! It goes without saying that Everland offers a lot more than just the aforementioned attractions above, so it’s up to you to explore and enjoy for yourself!
