According to industry sources on May 9th, the “Skybridge Tour” at the Lotte World Tower Observatory in Jamsil, Seoul, is considered the optimal choice for experiencing thrills in Seoul. The Skybridge Tour is a walking tour between two loops at the top of the Lotte World Tower, which stands at a height of 541 meters. The bridge’s floor in the middle of the span is transparent, allowing visitors to see the view of Seoul’s skyline and the scenery below their feet. It’s a modern suspension bridge.
On the 500-meter high top floor of the observatory, “123 Lounge” is also famous as a thrilling confession spot. It offers a separate proposal package to increase the success rate of confession while enjoying the stunning Seoul night view. The package prices range from KRW 340,000 to KRW 680,000, and despite the high cost, there are still steady visitors, according to Lotte World.
For those who want to experience more than just the thrill of looking down from a high place, various rides are recommended. The representative ride that offers a thrilling sensation of flying in the sky is the “Sky-X” at Seoul Land. This ride drops riders from a height of 50 meters using a single cable. It’s a combination of bungee jumping and skydiving, and it’s a must-visit for thrill-seekers. After taking the lift under the central tower while wearing a flight suit, passengers pull the rope attached to the flight suit and are instantly lifted up. After a free fall of about 5 meters, they fly more than 90 meters, making a large semicircle at a speed of up to 85 km/h.
The “Mega Swing 360” at E-World in Daegu is the first 360-degree rotating swing ride in Korea and has become a hit. It allows visitors to experience extreme zero-gravity as they hang upside down in the sky for a few seconds.
Everland’s “T Express” has been considered the king of thrills in theme parks for some time. The ride takes about three minutes, during which passengers experience a 77-degree drop, reaching a maximum speed of 104 km/h.
