Snowy Land in Vivaldi Park Ski Resort is the biggest snow sled park in Korea. From traditional sleds to tube sleds to mobile rafts to snowy play zones, it offers many exciting winter adventures. Not just for kids, there are activities for adults and families to play together too. The park is usually opened from early Dec till March (opening date will be announced in late Nov). This year, it was opened on 6 Dec 2019.
Its opening hours are 10am – 4:30pm (day pass) and 6:30pm – 10:30pm (night pass). During the day, it’s a huge snow playground. At night, it turns into a beautiful walkaway with thousands of real candles lightening the snowy street. Once you enter the park, you’ll enjoy unlimited access to the rides. Best of all, it takes only 1.5 hours from Seoul. You can do a day trip with their free shuttle bus before continuing with your Seoul itinerary.
Getting to Snowy Land from Seoul is super convenient with their free shuttle bus. You can purchase your tickets from KLOOK or TRAZY, and it includes round-trip transportation from Seoul and gondola ride to Snowy Land. Admission fee is S$27.60 (TRAZY) and S$33.49 (Klook) per person *Rate as of 12 Jan 2020* There is no child ticket. Children aged 3+ will be charged as adults. Children aged 0-2 are free if they do not require separate seats on the bus.
Now, let’s take a look into Snowy Land and see what it has to offer! Snowy Land is located at the top of the mountain which is accessible by gondolas. There are four main play areas: 1) Rafting Sleigh Slope, 2) Kids Sleigh Slope, 3) Family Sleigh Slope and 4) Snowy Racing, as well as several photo zones to take pictures.
Among all the rides, we love snow tubing the most. There are single and double tubes with lanes of different heights. Best of all, after we raced down the snow slopes, we were pulled back up to the slope without the need to walk. Haha!
There’s another snow tubing area with no height limitations. Families can do snow tubing race here!
Ice-sledding and race time!
One thing to note: Gondola ticket for Snowy Land is for one time use only (round-trip). There is no re-entry. Once you take the gondola down, you cannot re-enter unless you buy another ticket. But fret not! There is a restaurant, café and lockers at Snowy Land. Hence, you can spend the entire day comfortably at the park. We went up at 11am and played until the last gondola at 4:30pm.
Snowy Land is a perfect alternative for visitors who do not want to ski but have fun in the snow world. I’d recommended it for families with kids and the young-at-heart. The shuttle bus will leave for Seoul at 5:30pm. If you still have some time left, you can check out the various indoor activities at Vivaldi Park such as Legend Heroes and K1 Speed (read details in my blog post).
