Photo Trip Report: Everland, South Korea

This Summer I had the chance to visit South Korea for 6 days, and decided to take the shuttle bus from the downtown area out to Everland for the day. The shuttle was very efficient and convenient. Because I was alone, I was able to hop on the bus immediately without buying a ticket. But most people who were travelling in groups had found a way to purchase tickets before the shuttle arrived. One group of teenage girls who didn't have tickets were denied seats on the shuttle: but I saw them at the park a little later, and they told me that another bus arrived about 5 minutes after the previous bus.

For a Summer day, the park was surprisingly empty. The only thing I can say is that it was VERY hot that day, and maybe a lot of people decided to spend their day in the water park instead, which I hear are often more popular in the Summer time.

T-Express did NOT let me down - it has a great first drop, and airtime pretty much the entire way throughout the ride. My only gripe was that because I'm over 6 feet tall, I almost didn't get to ride. I could have also ridden multiple times because there was no queue, but after chatting with the girls in the gift shop for several minutes and getting their kaokao talk information, I thought it would be too embarrassing to go back through again. Unfortunately I got ghosted, and now I have my regrets...

Anyway, here goes my photo trip report. I hope you like it, and are able to experience this park for yourself one day!

T-Express is a coaster at the top of my bucket list since it looks like the love child of El Toro and Balder. I don't know when I'll make it to South Korea, but hopefully it'll be someday.

I'm not sure if this is was an attraction that had been closed, or was just a Winter attraction. I'm pretty sure it's a tubing hill.


I live in South Korea and that attraction is winter only sled attraction which has total 3 slopes.

Nice report, shame you didn't manage more rides on T-Express but glad you enjoyed yourself.

Also:
Rotating Houses are getting rarer and rarer, though I remember the one I rode at Great Adventure (also gone now) as being really cool.

Are you referring to the Vekoma Madhouse Houdini's Great Espace? Because that's still there - I rode it a couple weeks ago. Very trippy.

If girls you're into don't love and accept your coaster enthusiasm, then they're not right for you!

Otherwise, good report.
