Gaming and fantasies of Seoul Land

Seoul Land is one of the most reputed amusement parks in the country. This park is old as well as good for all individuals. It is beautifully constructed and is a destination for many events to occur along with its spacious locations and a lot of rides. For amusement, this place contains all aspects of enjoying a Korean traditional and equally modern life.

Moreover, there is a place of games and arcades and there is a game world located within its premises. Koreans love games and they have manufactured and produced a wide range of video games and many children in the nation are addicted to such games. It is a good place to find somewhere between rides and different functions and a lot of people. You can isolate yourself into your world and play accordingly.

Furthermore, any amusement park is incomplete without a place designated for children and this park contains a Kids land too. Both the game world and this place are located within the same plaza called World Plaza.

Also, the games don’t end here and IQ arcade and Midway Games are located within the park’s Fantasy Land where you can find games but of a slightly different kind than the previous one.

In addition, try the Character 3D Theatre to experience the technology of the South Koreans. A fantastic cinema experience and probably better than the other cinemas in terms of the 3D qualities it has. 

Rides of the Seoul Land

Seoul land rides contain a very significant portion of some of the best rides among Korea and a variety of rides can be explored here. Let’s mention some of the most famous rides in Seoul Land.

  • Shooting Gallery: Well, it is not a kind of a shooting range that only some very accurate people opt. It is a simple place where you have to decide a target and then strikes it to obtain gifts, in case you can accurately shoot the target. 
  • Den of Lost Thieves: You are locked in a kind of mysterious room. Combat the hidden enemies and constantly move with a gun at your hand. It would be very difficult to explain the full picture but you can experience it yourself whenever you visit Seoul.
  • Flume Ride: Within a boat along with a lot of water, you are traveling and the technology is taking you ahead. The ride may give you goosebumps especially if it is faster than you perceived it.
  • Convoy Race: In this ride, a child sits in a car traveling along a rail. They’ll love riding the Convoy Race and worth the memory.
  • Worldcup: Not cricket or a soccer world cup championship but its something where everyone can participate. With a soccer ball in between (artificial) and people are rotating around it. Just picture in your mind. Note the feeling this ride gives may be challenging.
  • Vroomiz Hill: A soft children’s playground within the fantasy land where many children play.
  • Black Hole 2000: Adding a bit astronomy to the rides, this ride consists of a space train going around a black hole (not the real one). A crazy and new invention which most of the parks would not have.
  • Haunted House: Walk through this horror house to test how strong you are. A challenging place for some people but equally interesting and wonderful.
