Everything from the entrance sign to parade floats and trees is covered with carved pumpkins, smiling jack-o-lanterns, ghoulish ghosts and gargoyles…. If there’s a place takes their themes very seriously, it’s Everland. They’ve got something for thrill seekers of all ages and the beautifully colored autumn foliage is also in full bloom, making for a perfect picture. Now let’s get into the series of attractions in store for all of you.

‘Happy Halloween’ consists of fun attractions that are quite light-hearted and fun, providing a family friendly twist on Halloween. Everything is mostly G or PG-rated, so you don’t need to worry about anything popping out and scaring you. The Happy Halloween Party is a dance parade where all types of ghosts and goblins dynamically dance around on decadent, large floats.

There are also magic shows that overwhelm and empower the audience, a nighttime moonlight parade that’s brighter than the stars in the night sky, and various themed multimedia show performances to commemorate Everland‘s 40th year anniversary.

Head on over to Horror Village for ‘Horror Nights’ if you seek real thrills and scares, where there’s plenty of attractions that will make your blood run cold. It’ll feel like a walk through one of your most horrific nightmares; the kind that you’ll be glad you woke up from.

By far the most terrifying and spine-chilling experience is the horror maze. You pay 5000 KRW to walk in the dark in groups of four to six and bump into many different types of ghosts and ghouls that’ll have you letting out blood-curdling screams, as you try and find your way out. It’s definitely not for the faint-hearted. Check out this terrifying teaser for the maze from a few years back featuring 2PM and miss A’s Suzy.

There’s also the Horror Safari. As your bus descends into the darkness, you’ll start to feel a sense of dread and want to head back, but zombies will chase after you and try to terrorize your bus. Will the bus be able to return without becoming torn apart or stranded? Most importantly, will YOU be able to return alive?

*Note: The Horror Safari is a horror experience that does not involve any live animals.

Blood Square is another major attraction; a horror village haunted by cursed souls who tried over and over again to calm their souls but failed. Enjoy the flash mob performance put on by shambling corpses in their gruesome, decaying states in the ruined ghost town.

You’ll probably be exhausted from screaming and running from ghosts and zombies, so fill your stomach with a variety of interesting Halloween menus. There’s everything from hotdogs with fangs and wrapped up like mummies to noodles with cute fish cakes cut into the shape of ghosts. Drinks also have creative names such as ‘zombie latte’, ‘monster blood ade’, ‘eyeball ade’ and ‘blood beer.’
