Seoul Jamsil Lotte World Adventure: Guide Center

Lotte World stands as Seoul’s premier theme park, located in Jamsil. Its official name is “Lotte World Adventure.”

“Opened in 1989, Lotte World Theme Park”

Lotte World Adventure, an indoor theme park, officially opened its doors on July 12, 1989. It was fully established on March 24, 1990, with the opening of Magic Island in Lotte World. The total investment amounted to 650 billion KRW. Conveniently linked to Jamsil Station on Seoul Subway Lines 2 and 8 through an underground passage, it provides excellent accessibility with access available via exits 3 and 4 at ground level.

“Comprising Indoor and Outdoor Spaces”

Lotte World Adventure encompasses both indoor and outdoor spaces, with a larger indoor area, allowing visitors to enjoy the park year-round without being affected by weather conditions. Presently, it holds the second position globally for indoor theme parks, following Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi based on ground area. With around 8 million annual visitors, it stands as a landmark representing South Korea.

Among South Korean theme parks ranked globally, it holds the highest position alongside Everland, often alternating positions with Hong Kong Disneyland annually.

“Lotte World Adventure: Guide Center”

While many visitors come to Lotte World Adventure for personal enjoyment with friends, loved ones, or family, some come as guides leading tourist groups. These guides, dealing with the stresses of schedules and various responsibilities, may find it challenging to enjoy their time at Lotte World.

In consideration of guides, Lotte World Adventure provides a space called the “Guide Center,” allowing them to take a brief rest. This center is located outside the main entrance, near the central gate leading to Lotte World.

Facing the main entrance gate, it is on the right side. A small door next to the ticket booth leads to the guide’s resting area.

In the past, the Guide Center provided basic drinks and tea, but it seems they no longer offer such amenities. Presumably, as the space is accessible to anyone seeking a brief respite, it is no longer stocked with supplies.

There are charging outlets available, making it a suitable place for guides to take a break and recharge their phones when needed.
