When considering ziplining in Yeosu, the first place that comes up is Yeosu Sky Fly zipline, located 15 minutes walk from Yeosu EXPO station. However, since October 31, 2022, the Yeosu Sky Fly zipline has no longer been operating. But don’t get upset about it. First, this zipline was low and very short, so it was not scary at all. And second, there is another one in Yeosu, located in the Ramada Hotel. Let’s check what you can do there.
First, you need to jump from the 24th floor of the building, which is about 130 meters high. Secondly, the length of the entire route is approximately 1.2 km, and the maximum speed that can be developed reaches 80 km/h. Even though the length is more than a kilometer, you can reach your destination very quickly, in less than two minutes.
This zipline cannot be ridden back and forth. It is only one way. Tickets are 35,000 won for adults and 25,000 won for minors. Also, if your ID card indicates that you live in Yeosu, then the ticket price will also be 25,000 Won. Working hours: every day from 9:30 am to sunset.
Before you go to the rooftop and put on protective suits, you will be required to fill out an online form. It will contain your personal information, as well as consent and awareness of all the risks and restrictions.
On the 24th floor, there is access to the roof. On the roof, you can walk and take beautiful photos against the backdrop of the sea and mountains. There are several photo zones. Also, after arriving at your destination and before you are unfastened from the zipline, a photographer takes a picture of you. Of course, it is not free. The cost of this photo is 10,000 Won. You can also buy coffee from a vending machine at the same place.
After that, you need to go to the shuttle bus, which is waiting for visitors near the zipline. The bus will take you back to the hotel for free.
To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of extreme recreation. I was very scared to ride even this zipline, which is 130 meters high. But for those who, like me, are afraid of such activities, I can convince you that it is worth trying the zipline at the Ramada Hotel. It was scary only for the first 3-4 seconds. But then, this feeling goes away and you can enjoy the view of the city from above. You can see more videos and photos on their Instagram.
