Day 3 of Seoul - Zootopia @ Everland

saw an Everland promotion package on daesung tour website .... 

Everland entrance ticket (usual price 48000 won) that came with shuttle service (usual price 12000 won) from Hongdae station at only 38000 won (S$43) ... how to resist such a save $$$, save travelling time, save hassle on changing subway trains offer????? 

Happy Angs on the shuttle bus @ 9.05am pick up time

payment was made in cash on the bus and in return, collected our return bus tickets and everland entrance voucher (for exchange of tickets at the theme park entrance) 


and in an hour or so (just nice for a nap on the bus), we reached the Everland shuttle bus terminal



 where we transferred to the everland shuttle bus that took us to the theme park entrance in less than 5 minutes 


felt so lucky that we need not join the long long queue to purchase the entrance tickets... =P 


super sweet looking entrance tickets that we exchanged with the voucher at the theme park gantry ... i like... =) 

This heater umbrella was a genius invention and a saviour to us... 




i think i saw this broccoli looking tree in one of running man's episode.... =P 



First stop and the main reason why i chose everland over lotte world was that the former had a zoo, named Zootopia, within the theme park ...





super chillaxing tiger 


One of the dirtiest polar bear i have seen... =P










most hiding in the shelter that came with heater

wire gauze tunnel for the squirrels to run around in .... 



super adorably cute foxes..... 


the evolution of the vehicle which we were be sitting in for the Lost Valley Special tour... =) 




出发了



车车进水了



sleepy lioness 

the highlight for this tour...


imagine my excitement when i saw this happening to the vehicle in front of us and realised that i was sitting on the RIGHT side... literally!!!!



oh well... i dun mind being in this vehicle too... 




took a pic of 洪爸爸 taking a pic of the giraffe  who was looking into his camera... 

i believe this was the shot that was captured... =D 


the giraffe right IN FRONT of my face!!!!!


with reference to the hand, that's how near the giraffe was!!! 







see how tiny the cheetahs were as compared to the rhinos... i would have missed them if not for Mr Ang....  

conclusion: This place/tour is so so so much better than our River Safari .... the animals were so much closer (i wasn't using my mega zoom lens for these pics), especially the giraffe (mad love)... and we didnt have to pay extra for the ride... 





4 panini sets and 4 cups of hot beverage came up to 53200 won (S$62.20) 




was there blushes on the 羊 meh meh?




she's the pretty zookeeper at the petting zoo area who came over to gather the 羊 meh mehs for Mr Ang ... =) 




another very considerate arrangement by the theme park....  teepee with heaters ... =D

Hi, May I ask if you had booked the ticket with the tour company online or at their office in Seoul? I checked their website but dont seem able to place any booking on line. Thanks. Al

hi, may i ask if the promotion KRW38000 is still available? i check the website it seems like the price is KRW 47000 for everland entrance + shuttle service.

thank you

Candy Chua said...

i think the promotions are different for the different months...i guess it was cheaper during feb as some parts of Everland was closed due to the extreme low temperature...

Hi, after you called and made the reservations, how did you pay? if i want to go to everland on the 29th of march, when should i be calling to make the reservation?

Hyee,

we called 2 days in advance and made the payment in cash on the bus itself.

Hi! I understand that the shuttle bus have lots of pick up point.May I know if the shuttle bus at a certain pick up point goes straight to Everland or they will stop at other pick point to pick up other passengers? Thanks

Candy Chua said...

Hi Rynn,
the bus will stop at different points before heading to Everland.

Oic...I want to go like your timing.. 9.05am is at Hongik right? So around what time u reach Everland?

Candy Chua said...

the bus ride took about an hour to reach Everland shuttle bus terminal. The shuttle bus took another 5 minutes. We were in by 10.30am. The good thing about this is that we do not need to queue to purchase entrance ticket. =D
