A Day Trip to Lotte World
Anastasiia Lepikhina shares her experience of the last student excursion to Lotte World, hosting the world’s largest indoor them park.
“Lotte World is a great amusement park located in Seoul, South Korea. At the end of the spring semester, we visited this place with SolBridgers and had a lot of fun there. This was also the first time Student Council organized a unique Excursion with a discount for prospective graduates. Many students signed up for this trip, and I was sure I wouldn’t enjoy that place alone, and that’s how it went! Apart from my friends, I made new friends and talked with students from other countries I didn’t know before. Lotte World is divided into two parts, outdoor and indoor areas. Even though the lines were long, everything exceeded our expectations. After riding the attractions inside and eating some lunch - which was amazingly good, we moved outside. The attractions outdoors are more for the adults, as they are bigger and scarier. I didn’t overcome my fear of riding the biggest ones, but you can easily have fun there even without riding them!
In the evening, there was a grand parade inside, where dancers from around the world represented various stories and movies. My favorite was Aladdin, as the performers were super lovely, greeting each of my friends! We were tired but delighted by the end of the day, so it was an excellent time riding the bus back as we shared the event experience. Overall, the trip to Lotte World was a fantastic thing to join. Thanks to Student Council for making my university life in South Korea amusing and exciting!”
