We chose Lotte World over Everland as it had an indoor section, which would be able to withstand any weather. When we arrived at Lotte World, it was already 12.30p.m. My enthusiastic daughter opted to go on rides before lunch, and by lunch time, we had gone on five different rides, with a repeat on one of the rides. The rides were Drunken Basket, Jumping Fish (Little An's favourite), Dragons Wild Shooting, Lotty Train and Eureka, which required us to pump on a piston in order to fly.
By 1 p.m., we saw people laying picnic mats, all ready for the parade, which we thought was at 1.30 p.m. We had to contend sitting behind someone's mat at 1.20 p.m. as there were no 'front seats'. To my surprise, the parade was actually at 2 p.m., so we waited for 40 minutes before some entertainers appeared. The children enjoyed the parade though and were thrilled when some performers gave them high fives. My friend's daughter even received a sweet from a dancer and she beamed in delight.
After the parade, we went on the hot air balloon ride, which gave us a bird's eye view of the indoor section of the theme park. The queue for the ride was 40 minutes so I purchased an ice cream for Little An to eat while we waited. She was thrilled!
For the rest of the day, we took the World Monorail, went on the Petit Beep Beep and Fantasy Dream rides and watched the Let's Dream Night Parade. A number of rides were for children above 110cm in height and my friend's daughter was turned away from a ride that we had wanted to go on. We were glad she could go on the Fantasy Dream ride as it was a hit with its many whimsical scenes along the way.
We had an enjoyable day at Lotte World and the balloons that my friend bought for the two girls from Lotte World served as wonderful souvenirs from the trip. 😊
