  • Sure it's a bit far (40 mins train, 40 mins bus) from most main tourist zones in Seoul, but this quirky little park is worth your time. Part cave, part weird underground amusement park, this place...  more »

  • Wow~~ Didn’t expect that much however I’m pretty surprised. There are quite a lot to see. And the size of this cave is pretty big. The media parcade is the prime thing not to miss. It takes only 4minutes. And the aqua part is so small. Only a few fish tanks? I can see they tried to put many things to entertain but each part of the cave isn’t that attractive to make us visit again. And one more thing the entrance fee is 6000 won and parking fee is another 3000 won. This is too much. And there aren’t even many cars and they are charging for parking. Seems like they are trying to rip off visitors’ money by charging for parking , fright exhibition and time capsule thing. You pay 20000 won for a wine bottle which is kept for a time capsule and 50000 won for a crystal time capsule box. Most of all this cave is not a natural thing at all. It used to be a gold mine during Japanese invasion, so many Korean workers must have been sacrificed and killed to take gold for Japanese who treated them like slaves for many years. After Korea get independent this cave was used to keep tons of salted shrimp as a storage space. Thanks to the ancestors who would have had a terrible time to mine gold in the oppression of Japanese invaders, we are able to enjoy this beauty of the cave.
  • Inside the cave you will see some nice decorations, aquarium, wine tasting, water fall, light show and gold (colored) plate charm. They also have a nice view outside.
