free fall amusement rides that you can only experience outside the building, and
the pleasant trail walks around the lake. One of the major reasons tourists are
attracted to Lotte World is the amusement rides. The Gyro Drop and Gyro Swing

sensation of being inside a tornado. There is even a sign for you to take your
shoes off before you get on, as they may come off during the ride. You can also
take the flume ride, a log boat that passes through the Jurassic Age, stay above
a high-altitude wave, and ride a Spanish pirate ship that swings at a thrilling
75 degrees. Besides the thrill of its amusement rides, Lotte World
also has a variety of parades and laser shows. The 200 performers-strong World
Carnival Parade has music, singing, and dancing, and adds excitement to the theme
park. The parade goes on at 2pm and 7:30pm, and the laser show proceeds in the
darkness at 9:30pm.
