Korea Day 7: Lotte World Seoul

If you ask me what is the place that you shouldn’t miss if you were to visit Korea, my answer would be Lotte World. Unless you’re travelling with your old folks, otherwise you must visit Lotte World. You can purchase discounted Lotte World 1 Day Pass from Klook starting from just S$36.00.

Located in the heart of the Seoul, Lotte World is the perfect spot for entertainment and sightseeing. It’s a theme park filled with thrilling rides, an ice rink and different kinds of parades, as well as a folk museum, a lake, and so much more.

Lotte World is divided into an indoor Adventure theme, and an outdoor Magic Island, next to Seokchonhosu Lake. The moment we stepped in, we felt like we’ve entered a world full of fantasy and magic. It was simply breathtaking!

We started our adventure with the indoor area, which is known as the largest indoor amusement / theme park in the world (a Guinness World Record). Apart from being huge, each of its four floors has a new story to tell and new excitements to explore.

Another unique part of the indoor park is its structure that makes use of the natural sunlight from the glass dome. It makes the atmosphere seem as if it is outdoor.

Lotte World Ice Rink is known as the finest ice rink in Korea. Located in the basement, the rink is open throughout the year. The rink’s facilities include a restaurant, a ticket booth, a snack bar, a sports shop, a skate rental service, and a changing room.

Lotte World Ink Skating Rink

We visited Lotte World in a mid-week, however, the crowd was more than I’ve expected. Some rides had queuing time more than half an hour. Nonetheless, Edison had a chance to try out several rides and he had so much fun.

We took the monorail to have a circular ride in the indoor area, and enjoyed a bird’s eye view of the whole indoor section along with the ice skating rink in the basement. As the monorail left for the outdoor area, I was completely spellbound. The view of Magic Island looming beautifully over Seokchonhosu Lake was simply amazing.

We spent most of our time at the Indoor area where most of the rides are located – particularly rides for young kids. Over at the Outdoor area, you can find more thrilling rides suitable for grown-ups.

Beyond all the attractions, there’s a museum in Lotte World. Unfortunately, due to time limitation, we didn’t had a chance to visit the Folk Museum.

Lotte World Tower is Seoul’s first supertall skyscraper with 123 floors! It was just completed this year.

Travelling to Lotte World is very easy as it’s directly connected to Jamsil Station (Seoul Subway Line 2, 8). After this trip, we will certainly visit Seoul again on our own in future, and stay at Lotte Hotel World. I’d like to check out Lotte World Aquarium and Lotte World Kids Park (opening soon).

hai, me and my friends are planning to visit the lotte world, but we are a little confused on the magic pass for all attractions that cost 100.000 won. Do you know, is that kind of magic pass includes the entrance ticket? or is it separated. Should we buy the passport pass first to buy the magic pass? Or should we buy only the admission ticket and then buy the magic pass separately? your answer will be a huge help :)) thanks

Hi Melvi,
I’m really sorry that I’m unable to assist you on this. I went on a group tour and my tickets were provided by the agency. Thus, I didn’t enquire about the magic pass.
