So Korea has a new trend here to try and boost the economy and get more people to get vaccinated and it's 'Vaccination thank-you discounts.' The cinemas are offering cheap tickets to 2 people if one of them is vaccinated ($5/6 a seat) and some expensive hotel buffets are now offering up to 50% off a table of 4 if one of them is vaccinated. Everland is now getting in on this and is giving 35% theme park and 40% water park discounts to any citizens of Yongin who get the vaccination.

 

Not sure how people feel about these discounts since Korea was pretty late to the vaccination game so I believe only people 60+, 1st 2nd grade teachers, healthcare, soldiers and emergency services workers are eligible right now so there's a lot of people who do want to be vaccinated but can't yet. There is an app for leftover vaccines if there are no-shows to avoid throwing away unused doses but vaccines have been pretty much 100% booked up by eligible people since the app went live two weeks ago.

Everland just announced they will be no after-shows (where people come out and get hit by water right after main performance ends) in 'Shooting Water Fun' performance, due to the media article, revealing that authorities alerted the Gyeonggi-do and Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to investigate, fearing there is serious risk of virus spread due to lack of social distancing and masks becoming ineffective after getting wet.

Everland are introducing a paid fast pass to the water park for the summer season, limited to 300 a day for roughly 40 dollars you can skip 3 lines: Mega Storm, Wild Blaster and Tower Boomerang or Tower Raft. The water park and Everland is currently pretty dead due to record high corona numbers but pre-corona these slides could get 2-3 hour lines each in the summer.

I really don't like Everland's new smart line system. A bunch of rides are reservation only until 2pm, but on weekends they're all snapped up instantly so you're locked out of 7-8 rides for most of the day. It's like Ride of the Resistance except it's a third of the park and you can only choose one. I assume it's a corona control thing but then why until 2pm? Hopefully it goes away considering 91% of the adult population here have got vaccinated. And since people are locked out of a bunch of rides/in a 3 hour virtual line it pushes up lines and crowds on the other rides. I get Halloween is busy but if it's for crowd control, it's not exactly working:

In the spirit of fairness, Lotte World which doesn't have virtual lines does also look like this at Halloween though:

Everland have announced they'll open the gates earlier and give more space to wait before the official opening of 10am for people to reserve a ride, but it just means most rides will be gone earlier. I feel lots of parks have tried virtual queues this year due to corona, but nowhere seems to have cracked the code on making it successful. T-Express is running an all day virtual line but since everything else is sold out and it's the only line left it has resulted in some big lines....

^One of the cubs, Kangsan the youngest of the 5, sadly passed away yesterday. The park has introduced a bunch of merch and new characters based around the 5 cubs and pushing them hard on social media to coincide with the year of the tiger, and had even been running some dance competition based around Kangsan specifically just a few days ago but it's been removed from the site.

Everland just got hit with the disaster, which is criminal case. 

Woman (who was the guest) detected suspicious activity in the woman's restroom near the Snow Buster (sled riding area). 

It was revealed that someone was filming secretly with the phone, from the next room. 

According to victim's statement, culprit was covered with the coat, while trying to act like a woman. 

He tried to flee to man's restroom, but arrested. 

According to police, it is assumed that the man used the backdoor of the woman's bathroom to get in there. 

It was revealed that the culprit was a part-time employee of Everland. 

According to media, Everland had another incident of spycam last month (for this incident, culprit escaped undetected, and case remains unresolved).
