    1. Hello Metta! Yes, Everland operates during the winter season and holds Christmas and other festivals but some of the rides, such as T Express, Thunder Falls and Amazon Express, will not operate when the temperatures are lower than 0 degrees Celcius (or 32ºF).

  5. Hello! I would like to check, does the local bus 5002 stop directly at Everland or does it stop somewhere else and I have to transfer?

    1. Hi Liyana 🙂
      Once you get off at Everland via bus 5002, please take an Everland free shuttle bus right in front of the bus stop. It takes about 4~5 minutes to Everland.

  6. Hi, would you know how much will be the fare for bus 5002 from Exit 5 from Gangnam Station? And what is the time for the last trip going back to Gangnam? Thanks a lot in advance.

    1. Hello Cath!
      The bus runs in every 10~15 min. from 6:20am to 11:00pm. The fare will be 2,600KRW per person. If you download the Naver map application on your phone, you can change the language setting to English and check the current location of the bus as well. I recommend you to check the details on the day to make sure you don’t miss the bus 🙂

  7. Good morning, based on the website “https://www.rome2rio.com/map/Jongno-3-ga-Station/Everland”,
    total cost per person is about 5720 won. and your post is about 2600krw. Which statement is correct?
    Also i have another question, is the bus stop station located in front of “Niko and…” there are people waiting there. I used the reference on google maps only. Last question, is the label on the bus No. 5002? is that bus going to Everland?

    1. Hello Mark 🙂
      It seems your price includes the public transportation fee from Jongno 3-ga station to Gangnam station. The fare of 2,600 KRW is for the bus #5002 itself departing from Gangnam.
      And, yes, you can take the bus #5002 at the bus stop located in front of ‘Niko and…’ to go to Everland (9 stops, approx 1hr5min~).

      1. Many thanks for your help.
        I have 1 more question. I have a 2 year old baby with me. Does the baby have to be paid in the bus and at the Everland?
        thanks

        1. Hello Mark, a child younger than 36 months old are free of charge for both in the bus and at the Everland 🙂

  8. Hi. How to go by bus from everland to seoul? I want to leave everland early around 4pm.

    1. Hello Joanne, the 5002 bus is at every 15~20 minutes every day 🙂 So please feel free to take the bus at your preferred time.

    1. Hi Sun Thin,
      Yes, you can see various Christmas decorations and firework in the winter season. However, please be noted that the fireworks may be canceled due to weather conditions or Everland’s internal issues. Please check the exact information with the staff on the day.

  11. Hi, I want to book the Everland + Bus package for November 2018. I am not sure whether I should take the Everland Full Day Package or Everland + Shuttle bus package. I will not know if I need to choose the late return as I am not sure what Everland has to offer in the evening in November (this is my first time going). I am going to stay in a hotel near to Seoul Station – which package is more suitable for me? Please kindly advise, thank you.

    1. Hi Eileen,
      In case of Everland Full day Package, the pickup locations are Hongik Univ.Station, Myeongdong Station and Dongdaemun H&C Station. If you would like to be picked up from Seoul station, Everland + Shuttle bus package seems more suitable for you. This package offers you to choose from 6:30pm or 9:30pm as a departing time from Everland.

  12. May i ask where will the bus be located at Hongik Univ Station. It is stated Line 2 but is there a specific logo to look out for or any strategic landscape. Its our first time there and i am worried we are late for the bus and miss the bus! Already purchased the shuttle bus ticket.

  13. Hi,

    We are a looking to visit Everland on 22Dec. 5Pax
    Would like to check the rate for the package with transfer.
    The timing pick up from Myeongdong station.
    Also what is picking up timing from Everland.

    Thanks
