Everland, Seoul

A must visit place in South Korea
Happy Halloween

Are you a Theme Park freak? Not scared of heights, thrilling rides, retarded rides as well? Like seeing all sorts of different style of decoration? A festive person?

Everland is the place for you to visit!

To be brought here

Everland Resort, is a theme park in Yongin, a city in Gyeonggi-do province, South Korea.

Everland is South Korea's largest theme park. With 8.6 million visitors, Everland ranked tenth in the world for amusement park attendance in 2007. Along with its main attractions, Everland also includes a zoo and a water park known as Caribbean Bay. Everland is operated by Samsung Everland, which is a subsidiary of the Samsung Group.

The name of the park is of note, as the name "Everland" is English. In Korean, the name is approximated as "Ebeoraendeu" - in other words, there is no authentic Korean name for the park. This park was formerly called "Jayeon Nongwon" which roughly means "Natural Farm". Its former English name was "Farmland".
