Quieter and less expensive than Everland and Lotte World, Seoul Land offers several classic amusement park rides—a swinging pirate ship, flume ride, bumper cars, and roller coasters—as well as unique attractions you’re not likely to find at other amusement parks. Visitors can choose between two ticket options: a standard admission or a nighttime entry (after 4pm). Some attractions, including a swimming pool in summer and a sledding hill in winter, have a separate admission fee.
Things to Know Before You Go
Seoul Land is a must-visit for families with kids and thrill seekers.
Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.
Some of the park is wheelchair accessible, and wheelchairs are available free of charge.
Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to spend quite a bit of time on your feet.
There are lockers and an ATM across from the Central Information Office.
How to Get There
It’s possible to get to the park by taking the Seoul metro (Line 4) to Grand Park and Seoul Land Station. From there, the Elephant Train ferries visitors to the park entrance, as well as to Seoul Grand Park and the National Modern Art Center.
When to Get There
Seoul Land remains open throughout the year, and when you visit depends on what activities you want to participate in, whether winter sledding, summer swimming, or taking part in one of several festivals throughout the year. It’s a good idea to visit on a weekday and to arrive early to beat the crowds.
Festivals at Seoul Land
The Seoul Land calendar includes five major festivals throughout the year. The Character Festival goes from mid-March through early June when the spring flowers are in full bloom. This event includes parades and plenty of photo ops with park characters. The Water Festival from late June to the end of August features a pirate-themed parade that doubles as a giant water fight. There’s also a Halloween Festival, Christmas Party, and Snow Party.
