EVERLAND

I cannot believe it took me more than two months to talk about what I have done in August haha. Yes, I am almost done ! So, I will finally talk about Everland, the huge Korean amusement park !


This amusement park is a bit like a Korean Disneyworld. Indeed, it looks like a magical, fairy world with several themed worlds : European adventure, Magic land, Zootopia, Global fair and American adventure. But it is way cheaper than Disneyworld, on that day I payed 35,000 won ! 



Tokki, Dani and I got there in the morning so there was not a lot of people. But, I remember we went to Everland on Korean national day so the place was really crowded in the afternoon ! 


Everland has a lot of little shops, there was even an Etude House store ! 









The first attraction we did was the Kpop Hologram. It is basically an hologram show. On that day it was Psy's show. I think there was 2NE1 and BIGBANG before ! I love hologram concerts, it looks so real, and it's funny haha. Sometimes, attractions in Everland requires you to get an additional ticket to enter them. It was the case for the hologram show, this one was free. 





When the show is over, you can go to a kpop store and buy goods. It is actually a YG store, there are only BIGBANG, 2NE1, PSY stuff haha.










And if you didn't have enough of PSY, you can have snacks with his face on them ! 





Then we visited the Pororo shop haha. 







Since it was summer, the whole park was mainly decorated with sea world stuff. 





We finally reached the second attraction we wanted to try : the hurricane ! I love this kind of attractions, though I am always scared of them haha. But, I think this one was okay. I actually didn't expect it to be that fast, I would not recommend it if you cannot stand attractions that move a lot. You may end up throwing up ! 




After the Hurricane, we headed to the restaurant in front of the attraction because it was raining. I don't remember how much I paid for my meal but it was too expensive, I think I was still hungry after haha. Still, it is cheaper than in Disneyland. 



I think we waited for a long time in the restaurant because of the rain. Fortunately, it was sunny after the rain, it was even too hot !!! But thanks god, there were a lot of this air conditionner with water thingy haha. 




The trash cans are so cute !!!


Since we just had lunch, we decided to go to the Safari World to digest, we didn't want to vomit in the attractions haha. The Safari World was really far from the place we were in, so we had to walk a lot.









And we finally reached Zootopia, the place dedicated to the animals ! There were animals everywhere, it was like a small zoo !








The girls and I went to the Safari World ! We went to the old one because I wanted to see the white tigers haha. There is a new one, the "Lost Valley", I don't know what kind of animals they show over there, I think I will visit it the next time I go to Everland !



In this attraction, you ride a little bus and like a safari, you see animals ! If you don't speak Korean, you can ride the bus for international visitors. The white tigers are so beautiful. In the end of the trip, you can see bears performing little shows for food haha. I shot a video of our safari trip, see below ! 



As usual, there was a souvenir shop next to the attraction with plenty of cute animal dolls !








Since it was in the same area, we decided to go to the Amazon Express. 









We saw the horror maze, I really wanted to try it but we had to pay 5,000 won so we didn't. I will try it next time I go to Everland. Maybe I will try the Horrow Maze II if it is free !



We had a break before going back to attractions. I bought ice cream balls : 빅구슬 아이스. I don't remember the taste haha. I think it was not bad, except the purple ball, it tasted too chemical.






The last world we visited was the "American Adventure", this one was my favorite ! By the way, it is also the place where the Hurricane is ! 




Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to try all the attractions in this place because we had to go back home early ! But someday, I will definitely try all the attractions in this world ! So, we only tried the Double Rock Spin and the Rolling X-Train. We queued for a long time to get into the Rolling X-Train. Something bad happened to Tokki and I. We gave our bags to Dani since she did not want to ride it. And once we were in the line, we realized we forgot to keep out entrance ticket ! Yes, you need to show your entrance ticket at every attraction, I don't even know why... I have been told we cannot ride the attractions without it. So, we had to queue once again ㅠㅠ The worst part is that the guy did not even check our ticket :( But never forget to keep it with you because I had to show it at every attraction I rode !







After visiting the American Adventure we went back to Seoul. It was the first time I went to Everland, and overall it was pretty fun. I wish I had more time to try all the attractions but it was crowded on that day. Though it is not as crowded as in Disneyland Paris, you don't have to queue for hours haha. 
I will go to Everland again this month, maybe after my mid terms. If you're in South Korea, I advise you to go to Everland before October 31th because they are currently holding their Halloween event !  Zombies are coming in the night haha. And if you go there on friday or saturday, you can enjoy the "Horror club fest" which is a performance of Korean DJ's and hip hop artists. I am not sure I can attend it since I have a lot of plans coming up on fridays and saturdays, I will try to convince my friends, I really don't want to miss Primary haha. 

When Tokki and I came back to Seoul, we had a honey bread as a sweet diner in John and Jin's café in Myeongdong. It was really good but so huge. That is why it was our diner haha.
