Yongma Land in Seoul. A closed, but not forgotten amusement park full of funny and slightly creepy abandoned rides.
Every day it’s visited by dozens of curious passersby, photographers, professional production companies and K-pop idols.
Getting to Yongma Land is simple. A 10 minute walk from the Mangu Station, Exit #1, you will walk until you see Yongmasan Ro #115 and turn left. Walk a short distance until you see Mangu Ro #72 and make a right. Follow this road through the neighborhood markets and keep walking. You’ll pass a place with temple lanterns on your right and continue walking a short distance until you see a short, steep hill with parking lot and entrance sign. Call the phone number listed at the gate and the proprietor will come to meet you. Pay the 5,000 Won entrance fee and you’re in!
If you’re in a crunch for time, hail a taxi, it’s a famous place and the taxi drivers will know where to go.
If you love to visit off the beaten path places or just love a great photo opportunity, then this place is a must see. If you go in the evening, for an extra fee, the proprietor will even turn on the merry-go-round lights.
