At Lotte World Theme Park, located in downtown Seoul, there are plenty of attractions to entertain the entire family. Experience thrilling rides and a cultural extravaganza, or exchange the excitement for tranquil natural surroundings at the lake with friends or that special someone. Select a half-day or full-day tour to suit your schedule, with round-trip hotel transport and a brief shopping stop at an amethyst factory and a ginseng center.
When your guide picks you up from your hotel in the morning, you're driven straight to Lotte World Theme Park, located in the heart of Seoul. Lotte World's indoor theme park is one of the largest indoor amusement parks in the world, and it's a great place to take the family year-round, regardless of the weather. Outdoors you'll find Magic Island, with numerous attractions and thrill-packed rides (see list below).
Once your guide describes how to maximize your time at the theme park, you're let loose to explore on your own. Watch parades, films and laser shows; see 5,000-year-old artifacts as well as miniature villages on display at the folk museum; and explore the dazzling Magic Castle ' a perfect backdrop for photos. Stroll the tranquil walking trail around Seokchonhosu Lake or rent skates at the indoor ice rink (own expense), if you'd like. When you're hungry, you'll find a variety of international foods available for purchase.
If you select the half-day option upon booking, you'll spend 2.5 hours at Lotte World. Upgrade your tour to enjoy more of the theme park, allowing you approximately 7 hours to experience the amusements.
Afterward, meet your group at a designated spot for return transport to your hotel. En route, make a 20-minute stop at a center specializing in amethysts and ginseng. Once you're briefed on how the gemstone and the Korean medicinal are produced, you're free to purchase anything you'd like.
