Special festivals are taking place at Korea’s major theme parks to help you forget the summer heat!

First, Samba Carnival is currently ongoing at Lotte World in Seoul and scheduled to entertain visitors until August 26. Samba Carnival is filled with fabulous samba parade and exciting stage performances with a story that revolves around Lotte World’s mascot Lotty and his return after his attendance at a samba school in Brazil. Visitors can also take souvenir photos with South America’s landmarks in the background at the media booth “Latin Visita.”

In Yongin, Everland is also hosting its Summer Water Fun until August 26. Several activities are prepared such as the “Shooting! Water Fun,” where visitors can participate in a water gun game activity along with staff in disguise, and the “Bambam Club,” offering an opportunity to soak in excitement with music and refreshing water splash. After sunset, the “Moonlight Parade” will present a romantic summer evening with illuminating LED lights.

In Gwacheon, Ghost Water Wars will take place at Seoulland starting from June 30 to August 26. The popular horror attraction Haunted House will transform in to a game room “Blood Number,” where participants must complete a mission within the given time in order to escape. Visitors will also have a blast with the interactive “Ghost Road Performance” and the exciting “Ghost Water Wars DJ Party.” Seoulland’s annual Water War will also take place on the same period, so make sure to enjoy everything the park has to offer while you’re there.

Also from June 30 to August 26, Daegu E-World will host a horror-themed event called “Zombie Hunting.” Visitors must try to escape from the zombie infested “Forest of Death” or track down and fight against zombies by becoming a “Zombie Hunter.” Aqua Fantasy Show Horror DJ Party will also take place on weekends and holidays on 20:00.

Don’t forget to add theme parks to your itinerary to enjoy your summer to the fullest!
