“The famous and largest themepark in South Korea”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

We went to this themepark (Everland) as part of a provincial fieldtrip (I was working as an English teacher at the time and one of our benefits was going on cultural fieldtrips like this one). The day we went, it started to pour rain just as we got inside the park and were walking towards the rides. Of course, I can't blame the weather for my bad experience at the themepark. It was hard to look for much cover and the themepark was really big. The lines were long for the rides too. There was definitely a lot of people on that Saturday afternoon. The park is a little south-east of Seoul. You would have to give about an hour to get to the park from Seoul. From walking around, I get the feeling this themepark is more meant for children that're still in school and families, basically. Young adults and college students could PROBABLY consider Everland as an alternate, expensive dating option. Think of it as your Asian version of Disney World/Land. Being that this is one of the most well-known theme parks in South Korea, if you are a tourist, I think you should consider at most, one or two visits. Oh yes, and of course when you're there, you should try the T Express. It's "South Korea's highest, fastest, longest, steepest roller coaster. Also South Korea's first wooden coaster. It has world's steepest wooden roller coaster record (77 degrees, 2009)".

“LINE UPS”
Reviewed June 8, 2009

WOW I've been to Disneyland, Canada's Wonderland and a few other parks more than once and i have to say I never seen line ups like this. Also I waited 3 hours for a rollarcoaster at Everland, most other other rides were alittle less than 1 hour or 1 hour. This wasn't even peak season, I'd hate to see peak season time! II'd say skip this park unless you like line ups and can't even get a VIP pass to this park, and Q pass only available on a few things and only in the morning.
Nothing exciting or worth your time here!

“Fun Day at Everland!”
Reviewed October 5, 2008

We recently went to Everland... most of the attractions were geared towards younger visitors, but we still had a fun day. The Koreans call it their version of DisneyWorld, but comparatively don't get your hopes up that high. It is pretty wimpy compared to most American amusement parks. There are just a handful of rollercoasters and then a LOT of carnival type rides. The coasters are a LOT of fun, especially the new wooden coaster, but get there early to ride it. We got there early and waited about 30 minutes... we tried to go back after lunch and the wait was 90 minutes. Also, there is a cool safari with lions and tigers. They were BEAUTIFUL! Again, try to hit that attraction early in the day when the lines are short. They have a cute parade that runs at different times during the day. Stay away from the Rock N Roller unless you have a stomach of steel!!!! That thing gave me a headache for most of the day. There is plenty of food for sale in the park, but there are picnic areas too where you can bring your own food. Food and souvenirs have reasonable prices (especially compared to amusement parks in America). Also, most brochures have a coupon for foreign visitors. It was just a really fun day... got to be a kid again for a few hours!

“The best Park I have been to!”
Reviewed August 26, 2008

We went on Monday (in school holidays) and the lines were reasonable - most rides the wait was 10 - 20 minutes and for some of the rides there was no wait. I would advise the newer attraction - the large wooden rollercoaster a must, but go early in the morning as the wait in the afetrnoon doubles to about 90 minutes!
By contrast the nearby waterpark was aweful - really crowded and the wait time for most rides was 1 to 2 hours long. We only got 3 rides in the whole day - contrast this with the amusement park - where we got 7 rides in half a day!

“Best theme park I've been to”
Reviewed April 21, 2008

Took between 45 mins to an hour to reach from Euljiro 4 in a taxi - cost ~50,000 won; bus is ~1800 won. The park was huge with roughly 5 roller coasters and a heap of other rides. I was part of a group 25-30 years old so we weren't interested in many of the smaller rides, but there was enough there for it to make it worth the 32,000 won to get in. On that point, try and find a brochure because it had a discount in it which we used. The park is built within a valley so expect to do a bit of walking. The best roller coaster I've been on is at the bottom of the valley; be sure to check this out! It's the big wooden version and it took us about 45 mins to an hour to get on it. So worth it though!!!! Great gardens if you're into that and an unbelievable amount of stuff for small children. Well worth seeing if you're into that :)
