A land of fun and adventures awaits.

As the first amusement park in Korea which opened back in 1988, Seoul Land holds a special place in the hearts of people here in Korea. Having opened right before the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics, Seoul Land has been through it all and continues to offer a fun and unique experience to fall.

What’s more, despite what its name suggests, Seoul Land is located in Gyeonggi-do. But it’s actually located on the outskirts of Gyeonggi-do, more specifically in Gwacheon, which is right next to Seoul. This means it’s also perfect for a day trip. With around 40 rides to hop on to, Seoul Land is a fun-packed destination for both adults and children alike.
