Eventually, Lotte World opened and locals’ interests drifted in this meek amusement park. This park was seemed forgotten but is now making a comeback …… not for its rides but the creepy and spooky ambiance. Since it has long been unvisited the attractions were mostly dilapidated however the owner maintained the place compassing a solitary backdrop.
