Woobang Land

We visited Woobang land which is a small amusement park in Daegu based around a tall tower. inside the tower is a rather smart aquarium which we had fun in.
apparantly 'Snappy' doesn't like turtles. Cheryl found it amusing that I gave all the animals nicknames.
Timmy and Tricia liked each other.
They had a much smaller and duller environment than the playful penguins we met in Busan but Percy, Peter and Petulia seemed ok. Don't make Howard angry or he'll move and give you a stare. (just as we were wondering if he was real or plastic he moved and gave us a look like he understood what we were saying and had insulted him - I nearly believed it but I wasn't talking in Korean)
Around the park properly were allsorts of amusing transportation. We wanted to play on these but the younger kids kept beating us to them, we even played on using them as a getaway truck in a Goldie Lookin Chain take off. Would have made a good photo!
The entrance. I've given up putting things in order. Compared to english amusement parks it was really cheap and all inclusive.
There wasn't even much queing.

The pirate ship (or as the Koreans and Canadians called it viking ship) was amusing as we were copied in our arm waving. I'm not sure if the Koreans were going to do it anyway but we certainly started it and they were happy to join in. We tried this on other rides too and you would be amazed how much a vowel scream, whoosh or swoop impresses the kids here.
The parade is like a small version of disneyland but with scary characters. Look out for my next blog for a full video.
the tower looked impressive lit up at night.
The log flume looked tranquil.
Like everything else here in Korea the park was set amongst the hills and allowed for some amazing views while you waited in line.



The ghost house was tame but allowed us to be mischevious scaring Korean kids with yelps and running....
The monsters dancing outside were scarier though the odd gasp of gas just seemed mean as it made some people jump.




I'm not sure which one is meant to be the permanent fixture. (I'm gonna get really beaten up for this post)



The fun house was ..er.. fun. We kept up the silliness anyway.









There was a pretty cool sledging section that we tried out.
Cheryl was meant to be in this picture but she got stopped at the top. I laughed but actually managed to barrel role the sledge myself.

Not the best photo but if you enlarge it you'll notice it's Cheryl with windswept hair on the nearest sledge. (I'm refusing to write sled).





Inside the tower is an observatory platform, a science exhibition, the afore mentioned aquarium and an ice skating rink.
I shouldn't go skating with canadians when I can't skate much better than a baby elephant. This is where I pay for my earlier comments. Look I'm standing... GIMCHI!
The crash helmet was needed. It's best to take photo's like this as I can pretend to be standing.
Apparently even putting on my skates was amusing.
In the next post along with the video of the parade will be me doing a lap.... without falling over. Watch this space.

Boy, you're going places!
Enjoyed the pictures, though that one in the ghost house is creepy.
The rest is really fun! :)

Did anyone mention how that tower bears a resemblance to the CN Tower in Toronto?

The beatings will come and so will my smart remarks.....like so, by writting "I'm refusing to write sled" you wrote it........and sled is the way non crazy people refer to it. Must be the water, only explaination....and I don't think elephants would have been near as graceful as you were!

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
