Horror Halloween @ Lotte World [~SUN 21 NOV]

Introduction

It’s Halloween in Korea 2021! It seems like Halloween gets more and more popular each year in Korea, as such, there are plenty of things to do. To that end, let’s check out Horror Halloween at Lotte World theme park!

First Impressions

As you approach Lotte World from outside, you’ll see lots of Halloween decorations, complete with glowing pumpkins and bat silhouettes. Additionally, within the theme of Halloween you can find areas dedicated to specific horrors, such as zombies or ghosts.

Moreover, there’s even a spooky story that goes with the decor. It seems that Big Daddy escaped prison with his crew and took over Lottle World, transforming the Magic Castle into Zombie Castle. During your visit, you’ll get the chance to see Big Daddy, introduced by a stunning pyrotechnic show. Furthermore, you’ll see the Lotus Halloween Parade featuring all of Lotte World’s ghosts and ghouls, as well as a projection show that includes giant spiders… EEEK!

Until the end of November you can enjoy Halloween to its full extent by getting scary makeup or outfits at Lotte World. However, if you want something to take home, you can buy shoulder bags, hats etc. at the gift shop.

Zombie Prison

During this year’s Halloween, the main thematic attraction is the Zombie Prison. It is a paid ride of ₩5,000 but certainly worth the price. 

Of course, in keeping with the Halloween tradition, Lotte World featured this year’s special themed ride: Zombie Prison. Tickets are 5,000 KRW but worth the price. Inside the prison, you follow a maze-like route, exploring each room and its hidden zombies and creepy objects… Don’t worry, you don’t go alone but in groups! At the end, there’s a prison-themed photozone.
