What
Lotte World is the first theme park in Korea, attracting an average of 8 million guests annually.

The theme park is designed to have two main zones. Recognized as the world’s largest indoor theme park by the Guinness Book of World Records, Indoor Adventure lures fun seekers with its 22 amazing rides. Sit on a man-made Island in the middle of Seokchon Lake, Magic Island is home to 17 outdoor rides that will surely pump up your adrenaline.

Why
The best part of Lotte World is that most of its space is indoors so you don’t have to worry about the rain or the heat from the sun.

This fun centre offers enjoyable activities for people of all ages. Children can drive the bump cars. Teenagers can fly on the roller coaster. Lovers can float around on the swan boats. Whole families can enjoy a lake cruise.

Besides theme park, Lotte World also features a museum, a shopping mall, a department store, a luxury hotel, and a movie theater. It is convenient to spend a night at the hotel, and enjoy a day having fun at the park and shopping at the mall.

Lotte World highlights
The Gyro series of rides is the centerpiece of extreme adventure in Lotte World. Free fall on the Gyro Drop from a height of 70 metres at a speed of 100 kilometres per hour. Swing around on the giant Gyro Swing and go back and forth like a pendulum with feet hanging in the air. Go more extreme and hop on the Gyro Spin where you swing and spin around on giant saucer-like discs. Are you dizzy yet?

Admission to Lotte World comes with free entrance to the Lotte World Folk Museum. Learn about Korea’s rich history and admire the scale model of a Korean village and palace. Wander into Imjinwaeran Hall and witness early Korean battles through Magic Vision.

The Lotte World Ice Rink is naturally illuminated through the glass-domed ceiling. For a moment, you will forget that you are indoors as you glide through the ice amid the screams of thrill seekers from the nearby rides.
