WhiteWater does it again! This park sounds epic. IIRC, there going to be 10 different types of water slides, including yet another Aqualoop. These slides are usually not built tiny when outdoors, so I can't wait to see the sized of them when built here.

Wow, as if an Aquatrax wasn't reason enough to try and get to this park some day!

 

Lotte World is kind of the name given to the entertainment part of the huge Lotte corporation here in korea, they have supermarkets, department stores etc etc, a bit like the lotte world towers that are being constructed, one next to the existing lotte world and another in busan. they are both being advertised under the lotte world name but only one is a theme park and the other two are going to be huge skyscrapers with viewing decks. Busan is actually the other end of the country from Lotte World and the aquatrax

 

It'd be a bit like going to Universal Hollywood looking to go on rip ride rockit.
