This past weekend, I went to Korea's largest theme park--Everland. Everland is two hours away from Uijeongbu by bus--it's serious business/the Disneyworld of South Korea.
There were two pretty awesome roller coasters, lots of "cute" stuff, costumed dancers, water rides, European/American themed areas, a zoo, and lots of junk food everywhere.
That city on the ridge over there? FAKE

Animated multi-cultural doll people are more terrifying than any roller coaster.
At least in Ed's opinion
Witness: water-ride with built-in, neck high splash guards to ensure you don't get too wet.
Indeed, no Korean I know would stand to walk around an amusement park all day, soaked to their underpants
Everland's zoo might have been the best thing about the whole park--first rate
We went on a "Safari" bus ride, where I got really, really close to this bear
Overall, probably not as epic as Busch Gardens or Six Flags back at home, but still a super-fun summertime thing to do...Everland also has a water park, which I'll need to hit up soon if it gets any hotter here
