Everland!

By Seyra Rico - 5:52:00 PM

Yes, this post merits an exclamation point in the title. Sunday night, when I had my fill of grand palaces and went out to see the sights in N. Seoul tower, I was alone in the bus and I was feeling glum for that night is supposedly my last night in South Korea. I don't know what else to do for the palaces are closed on Mondays. When I alighted the bus and was walking towards my hostel, somebody approached me and asked if I speak English. I said yes. He was relieved for I think he got lost finding some place to eat, and barely any one speaks English in that area. (He was streets away from the populated area, and I got off the bus ahead of my stop. What an amusing coincidence?) He then asked me if I can recommend bars and then I said yes, if he treats me to a drink. As I said earlier, Itaewon looks like it is made for tourists, so it has loads of restaurants and bars. We drank a little bit and then he invited me to go with him to Everland the next day. I decided to extend my stay for one more day. Thank you Yed, and for my open flight tickets! 

Everland was amazing. It is a massive theme park which features five themed zones: Global Fair, Zoo-Topia, European Adventure, Magic Land and American Adventure. Everland is located two hours away from Seoul. The ticket costs 54,000 WON but we got a discount because we presented our T-Money card. I forgot how much the discount was, sorry. These pictures weren't enough for we were too busy going ride after ride. 

I also did a quick search, and it's the same company who designed Enchanted Kingdom. It's where the steepest wooden roller coaster in the world is located. I lost my non-existent soul there! There is also a parade of Everland characters when the theme park is about to close, but we didn't see it. There were no lines, Yed even went to ride the roller coaster again. Everything was efficient, and the the crew were helpful. Granted, we went on a Monday in the dead winter so there were closed attractions but our time was enough there. I specially liked the virtual reality haunted house. A real treat!
