We’re in Cologne, Germany now, getting ready for our event on Sunday, and we’ve got another fun WANK for you from our Korean Road Trip. Woohoo! We’re publishing videos while we’re gone unlike last year’s Europe trip! So here’s a really fun one we filmed in Yeosu’s “The Ocean” Waterpark.
Let me just say this: going to the waterpark in the offseason in the middle of the week early in the day is GLORIOUS! No lines! Just run up to any ride you want and go! The people working there looked so bored. The little bit of us screaming forced smiles on their faces. It was a lot more fun than we expected.
There were some real issues with The Ocean Waterpark, though, and I doubt we’ll go again as a result. Though we had lots of fun on the rides we were on, let me at least give you a bit of the negatives so you can decide for yourself afterwards:
When you first check into The Ocean, they give you a wrist watch thing with a number on it. That’s the number of your locker. So, when you walk up to your locker, you touch your wristwatch onto it and then the locker opens. That’s brilliant. That watch also stores money, so if you want to get food or something, you charge it to your watch. This is very similar to Korean Jjimjilbangs, except for one huge difference. In Jjimjilbangs, you charge everything to your wrist watch, and when you leave you pay your balance. That’s great. At The Ocean, though, you have to load your wristwatch with money beforehand, which is not that great of an idea, because the only way to add money to it is ALL THE WAY AT THE ENTRANCE. So, if you’re in the water, and want to go pay for something, you have to walk up a lot of stairs to get back to your locker, and then get out your wallet, and walk through the entire changeroom and then get back to the front desk to load up. There are no other charging stations that we saw.
What’s worse, I’d think that paying 60,000 won admission (roughly $60 USD) would give us access to all the rides, but it doesn’t. You have to pay to use a life-vest, which we skipped out on, but that means we couldn’t use the Wave Pool, as you have to have a life-vest to get into the Wave Pool. Fine. We didn’t care much for the Wave Pool anyway. But we saw some other rides that charge 3,000 won for 5 minutes. Forget the fact that the charging station is so far away: charging for rides once you’ve paid for admission is lame. The jacuzzis also require payment. Double lame.
We didn’t notice this too much outdoors, but indoors, right by the stairs to a lot of the different attractions, there was a lot of mould and slime. Noooope. No thank you. Did not like seeing that. It was the first thing we saw on the bottom of the stairs as soon as we got into the park. Not a great first impression.
There were a bunch of rules that we didn’t like.
1) You have to wear something on your head. We all had to get swimcaps as a result, but it’s silly. What about my beard? And what about my chesthair? I can’t follow the logic. Also, with that swimcap and my beard I look…not…too great. I need to trim that beard
2) On the innertube lazy river, you can’t sit in the tube. You have to have the tube around your waist. That sucks. Also, the water is only 1 meter deep, so if you have the tube around your waist your feet drag on the ground. It was the lamest attraction at the park
3) You have to take off your shirt for slides. Didn’t like that.
4) Some of the slides hurt. The giant green tube should have been called Ultra-Enema, because I got 40 gallons of water up my butthole. I had to clench my cheeks going down. I couldn’t focus on the slide as much as the water up the anus. Not fun. Also, the slide indoors had ribs all over the tubes, and because I was shirtless I felt every one a lot. PAINFUL!
So that’s it. I don’t want this to seem like we didn’t enjoy ourselves there. We had loads of fun, screamed a lot, and played and were happy. There’s just a few things that kinda sucked about the place, easily fixable things, that could have made the experience altogether pretty wonderful. We’ll still cherish it forever, though, and we hope you liked our video on it as well.
And that’s the last Wonderful Adventure Now Korea video from our road trip. We hope you had as much fun watching them as we had filming them. We don’t have any pictures for this day as much as we did for our other days, because we didn’t bring all of our camera gear with us. We only brought our waterproof cameras. But we do have one special picture: Soo Zee felt very inspired to draw me. Here’s her lovely picture.
If you can’t tell, Soo Zee’s commenting on how much I fart in water…
We were gone for a week back in the end of August, but we got a good couple of months of videos out of it. We’ve got another FAPFAP coming next week of Yeosu’s ultra delicious seafood, so stay tuned for that, by clicking on the subscribe button below!
