Winter is coming to the Korea’s theme parks even before the actual winter has arrived. From thrill rides at the amusement park to dazzling LED lights and merry tunes, visitors may find a winter themed festival at any of these three theme parks - EverlandLotte World, and Seoulland.

Everland’s winter festivities will start with Romantic Illumination, and Christmas Fantasy will begin on November 24 and continue until the end of the year. The park will be decorated with pandas, penguins, reindeer and more animal lights during Romantic Illumination. The highlight of the entire event is the grand, 26m tall Romantic Tower Tree, and the 120,000 LED lights that will brighten the way along Christmas Avenue for a truly romantic Christmas aura. 

On the other hand, Lotte World’s winter festival is entitled ‘Christmas Miracle’ this year, with a ‘Miracle Santa Village’ set up inside the amusement park. Christmas costumes are available for all visitors to try on, as well as face painting experience to make your trip even more memorable. In addition, the entire park will be filled with fun and interesting things to see, from the Miracle Snowman, who can talk and sing carols, to a snow cave, and a room escape mission.

Last but not least, Seoulland’s 'Christmas Festival - Santa Run' has fun activities for the whole family to enjoy, from a relay mission game, to a gift-giving campaign, Christmas Charity market and other events. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of musical performances including ballet, jazz, and acrobatics. Other fun events will include a magic show requiring audience participation and lighting shows for a time the whole family can enjoy.
