It was a sunny day during our visit to Everland Amusement Theme Park, the largest theme park in South Korea. It’s about an hour bus ride from Seoul, you can check out the Ticket + Shuttle Bus Package I got from Funtastic Korea.
I always wanted to visit this theme park for my past 4 trips to South Korea and also when they first announced the YG HOLOGRAM concert but it has never happened, so this time I was determined to visit the amusement theme park that Runningman did their filming before.
Pick Up Point – Hongik University Station Exit #4
We took the shuttle bus from Hongik University Station Exit #4 at 0805am, you wouldn’t missed the bus because the word ‘Everland Resort’ is very visible from around the bus.
We reached the destination at about 9am, grabbed some foods from the 7-11 at the shuttle bus station then hop on another bus to Everland Theme Park which will takes another 15 minutes.
The shuttle bus depart at 6.30pm from Everland to Seoul and remember to take the other shuttle bus from the theme park as early as possible before 6pm as it takes about 15 minutes to the bus station.
To make it clear, you will be taking TWO (2) shuttle bus in TOTAL:
One Shuttle Bus (You paid for it) is from Seoul to Everland Bus Terminal and vice versa.
One Shuttle Bus (FREE) is from Everland Bus Terminal to Everland Theme Park and vice versa.
After reaching the entrance of Everland Theme Park, we join the queue to get into the theme park as the Theme Park opens at 10.30a.m. Get the English version map from the gate attendants so that you have an understanding of the theme park before entering.

There are 10++ rides which is suitable for kids as well, such as a fun haunted house named ‘Spooky House’, it’s not really a haunted house but rather a fun house to play with Spooky the cute ghost.
European Adventure is where the popular T-Express which is the roller coster at! Everyone came here for the roller coaster but it’s a challenging ride!
The most THRILLING & EXCITING roller coaster I ever took in my life!
The queue for this ride is the killing part! It may take up to 1-2 hours just for 1 ride! So go for the Q-Pass which will cut you to the front! You can get it at FUNKO – Everland Q-Pass.

I really enjoy my time at Zootopia! Though I thought I won’t be interested but the experience is so much different from all the safari that I’ve been to! You can watch the performances by Black Bear on the spot as in the video below:
Special Event – Everland Summer Splash 2016
It seems like Korean really loves the summer splash activity which we don’t really enjoy it much, but it’s really crazy!
Everyone getting ready with their water gun and rain coats when the Summer Splash Festive is about to start! You can watch the video below to see how crazy is the summer splash!
Overall, it such a fun day at Everland and I was lucky to went on a day which doesn’t have much crowd and everything took just almost 15-20 minutes for 1 ride! I managed to take so many rides in the theme park but too bad I couldn’t stay late for the fireworks at night.
