gyeongju world draken

If you’re planning a trip to Gyeongsang, whether to visit Changwon’s Yongji Lake or explore popular sites like the Bulguksa, then don’t miss the chance to visit Gyeongju World. With its world-class rides and amenities, this family-friendly amusement park has been featured in top Korean shows, including Running Man and I Live Alone (나 혼자 산다). They’re mainly known for their extreme rollercoasters, but, during winter, their snow attractions are not to be missed.

Here are some of the rides and attractions that you can look forward to, whether as a solo traveler, couple, or group:

1. Draken

Let’s begin with the most popular ride in Gyeongju World Amusement Park: the Draken! This is a steel roller coaster ride that’s constructed by the team behind the Yukon Striker in Canada’s Wonderland, the Diving Machine G5 in Janfusun Fancyworld (Taiwan), and the SheiKra in Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (US). The Draken features a hair-raising 90-degree drop, which will give you a very memorable free-fall experience. Definitely a must-try for seasoned riders!

2. Krak

The Krak in Gyeongju World is a monster ride that can rotate 360 degrees. At the start, it’ll swing you to the left and right, but you’ll feel your head spinning when it suddenly jolts up and get you hanging upside down!

3. Python
