We go to Lotte World this week for our WANK and have a buttload of fun! Wahooo!
Gosh! We haven’t been to Lotte World in a looooong time! Probably…two years or so, we think. We don’t go to amusement parks that often. We did a video when we went to Everland a long time ago, but we never did one for Lotte World. TODAY IS THAT DAY!
Lotte World is cool in that it’s both an indoor and outdoor amusement park. The major roller coasters and attractions are outside. But, if it rains, then you can go inside. Your day won’t be completely ruined! It rained on us yesterday – not too hard, but still enough to make you uncomfortable – so after our last ride on the Gyroscoping Scream Machine of Monster Doom (that’s what it should be called) we spent the rest of our time indoors.
There were a bunch of rides and things we couldn’t show you in Lotte World. We just didn’t have time enough to get to everything. There is one thing, though, that we wish we figured out beforehand: there’s something called “Magic Pass.” I think – supposedly – you can buy individual tickets for individual rides. You don’t necessarily have to do that, because you can buy a pass like we did that will get you access to all the rides in Lotte World, but this Magic Pass does the glorious, glorious feat of letting you skip the line. HELLS YEAH! I’d totally pay more money to skip the line! Well, I’m not sure how much it cost. I could be wrong about it as well. When we went to the info booth to ask about it, they said that it’s only until 6PM, which we had already passed. Next time we go, we’ll try these out. For…science of course! Not for our own selfish, lazy reasons!
Lotte World Pro Tip: going mid-week is AWESOME! Last time we went was on a Saturday, and we waited in line for TWO HOURS for some rides. TWO HOURS. This time, the lines were smaller. We still waited, like, 30-45 minutes to get on the rides, but it’s better than two hours! Another tip: don’t go to that 3D Haunted land. IT SUCKS MONKEY BALLS. We went last time. We waited in line for over an hour for it. And what was in it? A really crappy 3D movie in really crappy seats. The movie was about a kitty going through a haunted house, except the animation looked like it was made in 2002. Nowadays, 3D is a lot better than that. Save your time! Don’t go there. Last pro tip: if you’re above 190 cm like I am, and they try to measure you up: DON’T STAND UP STRAIGHT OBVIOUSLY! Spread your feet a bit, stick out your groin (not in a sexy Kpop way, of course. There is a time and a place for that, and this isn’t it), scrunch in your neck. Those few centimetres will get you on that ride, like it did for me. YAY! (Little did I know that I could get my feet and head chopped off on these rides. Oh well!)
Another thing we wanted to mention: you might notice how the camera quality isn’t too…crisp. We tried something different for this week’s WANK. Remember last week when we went for Patbingsu? We brought out most of our gear for that. Anyhow, the coffee shop actually has its own blog, and took pictures of us filming our FAPFAP there. We’ve got our DSLR, our different lenses, battery pack, Zoom H4N, Tripod, and two Wireless lav mics. NOT FUN TO CARRY AROUND! That’s kind of a pain in the butt for us when we want to go places, because we always gotta worry about how we’re gonna bring everything with us. So, for this week, we knew we wouldn’t be able to get on the rides with our big gear, so we tried to just shoot on the iPhone. We brought our wireless mics as well, to try to get some decent sound quality, but we left the big guns at home. Hopefully it’s not too noticeably awful!
Anyhow, we’ve got a couple of bloopers this week. Not too many. We were set on doing a whack-a-mole challenge, and started doing the whack a mole, but then it turns out that the machine wasn’t counting our score at all. LAME!
