Everland has become the target of an animal rights group recently, over the polar bear exhibit: http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/nation/2017/07/371_233825.html

Everland just announced new theme for Halloween: Blood City




Theme Story:
In 2007, Virus infected Zombies took over city, putting whole city in chaos and panic.
Special Force has been dispatched to take control, but no one survived.
Korean Government immediately put Everland in quarantine, not allowing anyone from entering there.

It's been 10 years after the incident, and It's almost Halloween.
We've just received a distress signal moments ago in the quarantined area.
Mr. Hunter, who lost the wife (she was a doctor who worked about virus) 10 years ago, decided to make a investigation team to venture inside this Blood City. He put you on his team, and prepare to discover secrets and survive.

Attractions include:
1. Horror Amazon Express: Ride a river rapids ride full of zombies and deranged animals.
2. Horror T-Express: This is only way out. Hang on!!
3. Horror Safari: Investigation Team has just fled to Safari to avoid Zombies. Is this safari is safe enough??
4. Horror Maze: According to investigation team, this zombie virus was made by side effects of vaccine made by Dr.K.
5. Secret Mission: Investigation team stated that they are still hostages locked up in abandoned lab of Dr.K. Save the hostages, escape and tell the world how monster Dr.K. is. If you do, you will be rewarded with a trip to England.

These attractions are still being investigated. Update coming soon:
1. Horror VR: Expected to be Horror Maze VR.
2. Crazy Zombie Hunting: It could be a zombie stage show.
3. Zombie make-up: Zombie make-up returns this year. Get a scary zombie make-up and try to terrorize everyone in Everland!

-For the first time, in August 30, one brilliant visitor managed to pass all three levels and managed to win a trip to England.

Remember that Secret Mission that I stated before?? It was paid attraction that you play to escape.

Secret Mission: Investigation team stated that they are still hostages locked up in abandoned lab of Dr.K. Save the hostages, escape and tell the world how monster Dr.K. is. If you do, you will be rewarded with a trip to England.

There are three levels you must pass and escape.
If you pass first level, you will be rewarded with Q-Pass (Ignoring Stand-by Waiting Line) for T-Express or Amazon Express. (I recommend T-Express).

Check out some videos from Blood City.
I visited Everland like 5-6 times for Halloween.

Zombie Make up for this year


I enjoyed Horror T Express, Horror Safari (Costs Extra, limited), Horror Amazon Express, and Crazy Zombie Hunt.
For this year's Halloween, Everland used some hologram technology, provided by Panasonic.

1. Horror T Express




Watch hologram video of zombies trying to brake-in to T Express station.
This T Express train is only way out of Blood City.
Be careful of any zombies that could be waiting when you're exiting T Express.

2. Crazy Zombie Hunt (Performance)




Be sure to get your spot early as possible, or you will be forced to see from way behind.

3. Horror Amazon Express




We've got a news of strange creatures appearing in Amazon Express, with the news of some missing people.

4. Horror Safari (This attraction requires ticket with extra cost. It runs out quickly, so buy a ticket once you arrive at Everland.)




You're the one of survivors who fled to Safari, located to the east of Blood City.
You're riding a bus that will take you to the sanctuary.
Be careful that some zombies made into Safari.

My Everland outfit for Halloween


I themed myself as a ZPD officer for this year's Halloween, again. (Safari is located in Zootopia section in Everland)

I know this is the time of the year when I usually upload a year's worth of photos in a huge 90 photo TR but honestly this year I didn't really take any. A couple of reasons but mainly 1) the park hasn't changed much in 7 years give or take the lost valley and panda animal exhibitions, nearly all the new rides have been re-skins or re-used buildings that were already there so most of my photos were just repeating and 2) both my trips I had my 17 month-year-old son with me who, now he can walk, has taken an interest in rides. And although a lot have no minimum height with an adult (I once saw a baby strapped to the parents on the rapids) we avoid anything too fast or that has a divide since he is still too young to grasp the concept of safety (no matter how many times he points at the dragon) so I end up spending most of my time on the children's rides that my wife can't stomach (aka the rotating airplane mini magic carpet style ride for hours) and don't want him bored for an hour while I'm in line for T express. Although from next year I might stop going on days with 50% discount and do a yearly trip with the fast pass package.

One minor quibble, the queue return tickets to stop line jumping seem mostly for show. We constantly saw while in the Safari World Reservation line ( the reservation area had a random 9:56am posted opening and ran out within 8 minutes instead of staggered fast pass they allocate a bus every hour or two to be just for queue pass people so be on time for that pass!) one person in the line, point to a group of up to 5 - grandparents, wife, and kids, be given a queue return to go park the stroller while those 5 jumped in and he would come back to join them.

I also don't have pictures of the closed ferris wheel VR since there was only a small information board and a small pathway next to the memorial sign I've posted in previous TR's.

여보! So I'm planning a very last minute trip to South Korea from December 28th to January 3rd. I'm thinking of going to Everland on that Friday, the 29th. This may be a stupid question, but will T-Express still be running at this time of the year? I know it's December but it doesn't say whether the ride is open or not on the website and that gives me some hope...

^It does usually have a winter rehab but it was running today. According to the app, it was running today 10:30-6:30. It does normally go down for a winter rehab for a while which would be coming up soon but they normally advertise a little ahead of time on the site news and I see nothing so far. It is weather dependent on wind and cold but it's been up during most of this cold snap. It also helps your dates are when a lot of schools are off on vacation so the rehab is likely to begin sometime mid-January after the new year rush at this point. If the Korean site updates, i'll post here for you.

Also if you go before the 1st you can go 50% off if you go to the group ticket office, I know you aren't a resident but they are normally quite kind on foreign visitors and the discounts tend to turn out translated differently from the Korean, we always ask just in case when we've had guests from home and gone in. They put my wife through when she was with me even when she said she was a Korean: http://www.everland.com/web/everland/now/news/1217280_10436.html

Alternatively, if your main concern is T Express and you don't care about a discount, by booking online you can get a free q pass for it or pump for the pricier 4 pass deal and skip the safari lines as well: http://everland.eticket.placem.co.kr/everland/product/input.html

Thanks so much for the quick and detailed response! :br
I just did a bit more research on the q-passes and I saw a website selling q passes for 10,000 won each. So if I can get the foreign resident discount ticket for 28,000 and 4 passes for 40,000 that should cost less than the special 4 pass deal! And according to the site selling the q-passes, it looks like T Express will be down for rehab starting January 1st!

Hope this is legit: https://www.funtastickorea.com/en/prod/everland-q-pass-fast-pass

By the way, of the Safari Tour, the Lost Valley, and the Panda World, which would you recommend most?
