Children’s Grand Park  is a large, older park with a sort of depressing zoo in the back. However, it does have other things going for it. Before you get to the zoo there is a giant kids’ play area in a sand pit. And around the corner from the play area, there is a water feature where kids play. It is like a shallow, concrete stream running over steps and rocks. Toddlers can splash and play on a hot day. Before you get to the zoo, up the hill on the left is a dog petting area separated into small and large dogs. If you don’t have a dog here, your kids may enjoy just sitting with a little dog on their laps petting them or playing with the big dogs. The areas are well-supervised by dog trainers. Buy a 1000KW ticket at the gift shop before going up.

Dreamland is located within the city limits of Seoul. An urban amusement park, it’s home to three roller coasters, several carnival rides, a water park and a mall petting zoo.

Everland is about an hour’s drive out of Seoul and is set in wonderful surroundings. There are five theme areas including Caribbean Bay, Festival World and Everland Speedway (the latter requires a current driver’s license). Each area has specific attractions, rides and restaurants. In winter, it’s possible to go sledding at Everland Snowbuster. Food must be purchased on the premises at Caribbean Bay; you can’t carry your own and your bag may be checked. For the water sports, a bathing cap is required. Directions and transit info.

Lotte World is a giant shopping, sports and activities complex, and amusement center all under one roof. In the center of the complex you’ll find an indoor ice-skating rink that is open year round and where you can rent skates. Towering above the ice rink is an indoor amusement park complete with a roller coaster, monorail and merry-go-round. It’s a great place to go on a rainy day. A monorail connects this large Adventureland to an adjacent lake outside, called Magic Island. Magic Island has indoor swimming pools, bowling alleys, a folk village, hotel shopping center and several movie theaters. Lotte World is located in Jamsil between the two Olympic Stadiums. Jamsil subway station, Line 2 takes you directly into the complex.

Seoul Land offers theme areas each with its own special characteristics and focus. Performances, exhibitions and events such flower festivals take place in the park. Seasonal facilities such as the outdoor swimming pool in summer and a sledding slop in winter make it a fun place to visit year-round. There are also laser shows and fireworks.
