2014 Feb: South Korea: Everland

Due to sudden left and right turns in the morning, we left Seoul very late in the afternoon for Everland. 

How to get there?
Bus 5002
Take Subway Line 2, alight at Gangnam Station, Exit 10 [2014].  Walk forward for more than 5-10 minutes (passing Giordano, Krispy Kreme, until Who.A.U.), take Bus 5002.  It will take more than hour to reach the bus terminal for the Everland shuttle service.


Upon checking Google Maps (Jan 2017), not sure if there is road construction near Exit 10, you may want to move to validate first, before moving to bus station between Exit-6 and Exit-5 (in front of NH Bank, Kookmin Bank).  It will still be the same Bus 5002 (heading to Everland).
From there, wait for the shuttle service, travel time will be another 5-10 minutes, before you can reach the Everland gates.



Train
Make your way to Jeondae Everland Station (last stop) on Yongin Ever Line.  From there go to the shuttle service parking lot (the stop of Bus 5002), wait for the Everland shuttle service, travel time will be another 5-10 minutes, before you can reach the Everland Ticket/Gates.



Transportation Details














It took me more than 2 hours to queue for T Express, which I really to decided to take even I'm in Manila.


T Express is a wooden roller coaster at Everland in Yongin, South Korea. It is South Korea's first wooden coaster, Intamin's fourth wooden coaster with prefabricated track, the first ride of this type in Asia, and the first to utilize three trains. It is world's second steepest wooden coaster, only to be broken by Outlaw Run at Silver Dollar City. It is also the world's ninth fastest, fourth tallest, and sixth longest wooden coaster, with El Toro being the third tallest.
T Express was ranked as the world's best wooden coaster in Mitch Hawker's online poll in 2008 and 2010. [Reference]
