Everland, Yongin, Gyeonggi Province: The Largest Outdoor Theme Park in Korea

Everland Resort is a theme park, located at 199 Everland Road/Everland-ro, Jeondae-ri 310-beonji, Pogok-eup, Yongin Cheoin-gu, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. It is South Korea's largest theme park. With 6.6 million visitors, Everland ranked thirteenth in the world for amusement park attendance in 2011. Along with its main attractions, Everland also includes a zoo and a water park known as Caribbean Bay. Everland is operated by Samsung Everland, which is a subsidiary of the Samsung Group.

The name of the park is of note, as the name "Everland" is English. In Korean, the name is approximated as "에버랜드" – in other words, there is no authentic Korean name for the park. This park was formerly called "Yongin Jayeon Nongwon/용인자연농원/龍仁自然農園" which roughly means "Yongin Natural Farm".

The park is home to over 40 heart-pounding rides and attractions. In addition to ‘Safari World’ featuring white tigers, tigers, lions and bears, ‘Herbivore Safari’ opened in April 2010, letting visitors get up close and personal with the safari’s giraffes, elephants, and ostriches. Everland is also known for its gorgeous flower arrangements and beautiful gardens, which have been year-round fixtures since the Rose Festival in 1985. Other great spots for family fun are the Snow Sled (the first and the longest of its kind in Korea), Caribbean Bay (an outstanding water park) and Everland Speedway (a racing track). Full of exciting attractions and entertainment, Everland is one of the most popular places in Korea for families, friends, and couples.

When Kyotaro brings Senri and Kana to Everland, maybe both of them are... urmm.... Oh well.
