The Ocean Waterpark in Yeosu

Hey guise!

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:

The Payment System is Terrible

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.

The Sanitation

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.

Slide and Ride Protocol

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!

  1. Ah, water parks in Asia and their essential swim caps…HEY WAIT A MINUTE YOUR NEW CHUM BYPASSED THE SWIM CAP RULE DON’T THINK I DON’T SEE AN EXPOSED HEAD OF HAIR BECAUSE I SEE THEM FOLLICLES.

    I just went through a number of older EYK videos, and then this video got uploaded and I feel so thankful for the ball of happy that you create. I enjoyed every single angle (flattering or not) on this water ride.

  2. “I should just be in one giant condom, floating the whole time.”
    tbh Simon, the people who work there were probably thinking the same thing but whatcha gonna do, tell the foreigner he can’t have a fun day at the park because he’s just too much of a man beast? That’s just not nice. Nobody wants to see a giant man beast quietly sobbing on a bench while all the other kids get to play.

    • Except, I wouldn’t be quietly sobbing. It’d be loudly. Sobbing and writhing and snotting everywhere.

  3. Oh Korea and your life jackets… maybe just start teaching people to swim? Just a thought… And the swimming caps…ugh.. I have a lot of bottled rage about swimming in Korea. I don’t know whether I should go to a water park just to get SOME swimming or just wait until I go back to Australia for a visit.

  4. I don’t mind water parks, but some of the things mentioned will turn me off big time:

    1)Life jackets for adults in a water park… that’s a hell no for me… I’m a strong swimmer and the chance of me sinking in water thats give or take less than 5ft is absurd. Also, I swear they won’t let you sit in an inner tube out of fear you’ll drown in water thats barely a meter…

    2) Sanitation. My parents always made me wear my pool sandals whenever I was at a public pool. Pool floors can get the most disgusting of germs that you don’t want. It ranges from warts to skin problems… I have trained myself to tiptoe whenever I walk without my sandals. Keep your waterparks clean… srsly…

  8. People tent to have longer hair in Asian countries maybe the swim caps are A safety measure so people don’t Get hurt because of the air hair getting caught in Drains cracks in the slides and what not. Once I was in a water park in the lazy river there was a girl with longish hair that got tangled in like a side vent thing. And a couple people were trying to free her from it

  9. Hey guys!

    So, I’m wondering why no one is wearing a bathing suit/bikini here? Did you guys only show the people wearing shirts (lots of those, I see!) just so you wouldn’t have a bunch of sexay bodies on the video? Or do people in Korea generally cover up to go to waterparks? I’m surprised no one asked this, so I’m wondering if it’s something that was addressed in a previous post and I’m just late to the party -_____-

    It was just the first thing I noticed since waterparks in the US have a lot of young teenagers as the employees, wearing no shirts (boys) and one-piece bathing suits (girls), and I noticed the employees here are wearing shirts (with sleeves) and longer shorts.

  10. Errrmerrgerrd… I went to the Ocean in July!! >_<
    But yeah, I HATED that I had to wear a cap… and I was wearing a baseball cap. I did blend in, but still. I also hated wearing the life jacket. I'm definitely a good swimmer, and so that was a bummer. But it was still fun! There were more people there when I went, but it was not crowded since we went on a weekday.
    But the waterparks in my state, Texas, I consider WAAY better, like Schlitterbahn. I'm also used to wearing a bikini whenever I swim, so I felt slightly self conscious being the only one in a two piece~
    I'm glad to see you guys had fun!

  12. Hahaa, so many screams and chaos! I have basically not any water park experience at all – but this seemed like a lot of fun! But the paying seems really silly. I always need to have a quick snack when doing a lot of fun/exercise or I get really nauseous. Sounds like at the water park I wouldn’t bother with buying anything and then would get bleh.
    And yeah, slime? No thanks, then I’d rather befriend jelly fish in the ocean

    • Simon’s epic screams definitely made this one of the best water park experiences of my life. He opens his mouth and the funness factor goes up by x200

  14. That waterpark looks very much like the one we have here (in LV), it is actually really similar. Except for the swim cap rule and the vest thing. And no rides cost extra, but you have to pay for food/drinks. I’m not entirely sure how the extra payment here costs, because I only did that once years ago. From what I understood, at the beginning you had to pre-pay for everything, but the payment place was in the changerooms(also an info centre), but when I went to pay, they told us we will only need to do that afterward, so yeey or convenience!

    I have no idea about the shirts though, as I have never worn one in a waterpark, but they could ask you to take them off in the “extreme” rides which nobody goes on because they can actually hurt pretty badly. Cut open elbows and such. It’s rare though, but not a very pleasant experience either way.

    The lines can be super long or not there at all depending on the season. I actually love going there at winter because while the outdoor hang out area is closed, the river thing does go outside so you can be warm and toasty while it’s -20C outside. There is also a natural temperature pool there which is cold in winter, not like I would ever jump in that, that would just be silly…

    Oh, are there saunas in Korean water parks? Because here we have a sauna culture, we get those in our water parks, both dry and steam saunas. Because who doesn’t want to sit in a +90C sauna?

    I never visited water park before but very exciting place than I expected.
    Your top image looks like tribute for “Scream” the movie and I like your sense of humor. Love it.

  19. Wow, that looks like a very big and varied water park! If it’s next to the ocean, do people not just swim in the ocean though?

    I suppose that the life jackets AND tubes seems like overkill for safety but I don’t get the impression that as many people in S. Korea know how to swim as in Canada. I mean here, you HAVE to pass to a certain basic level just as part of elementary school and most kids go even further in lessons, just because falling in water is so much more of a likely event here…..? Mind you, my elementary school in Northern Ontario also taught winter survival skills as part of the curriculum (how to find or make shelter and fire if stranded in the wilderness in the winter, what if someone falls through the ice, how to deal with hypothermia, etc.). Korea is so urban, maybe these skills aren’t so useful so they aren’t taught at a young age.

    Also, were there a lot of lifeguards at “The Ocean”? Maybe they didn’t have a lot. I took my son to a waterpark in London, Ontario this summer and there were at least 2 lifeguards for every slide (like, 20 plus other staff). I did have a couple of scary wipeouts (recovered) but I was glad they were there.

    I super liked the bar overlays, and how they drifted up and slightly shrunk the longer they were on the screen but I think that they are a little too opaque, they blocked most of Simon’s face at times and they Spudgy cartoon really draws my eyes from the text. However, still WAY better than flashing a screen of text. That is okay too but in the last video (goat FAPFAP), the text screens were way too fast for me to read. I like the jokes, but it’s not funny if I get frustrated because it’s too fast to read even a word.

    For some reason, I thought it was very cute the way that the Spudgy pin on both Simon and Martina’s shirts at the end folded over in the same place. So, there are pins now, as well as patches?

    Cyber_3 – back to commenting because the links are working again! you should mention in your videos so it gets busier in the blog comments again.

  20. Freshtorge will also be in Cologne tomorrow. He’s a famous German Youtuber. Maybe u should meet up ;) At 2PM he’ll be at Buchhandlung Mayersche, Neumarkt 2. He’s really funny! https://www.youtube.com/user/freshaltefolie/about

      • No, I guess it’s another Youtuber. Freshtorge is just arriving here. A lot of famous people live in Cologne because Cologne has developed into the most important media city in Germany.

  23. Looks like you guys had a blast! Going on an ordinary looking day is definitely the go. I had a similar experience at Wet’n’Wild here in Australia, where the weather looked really good but then a storm came along and they had to clear the rides (cause of the lightning) and most people got over it and left but we stuck it out and by lunchtime it was clear again and there was hardly anyone there! Best day ever!

    I’ve never heard of that wristlet paying system, I’ve not seen anything like it! That could be really helpful! I wish Australia would get fun things like that.

    5 years ago
  24. Wow. That system seems very very inefficient. Are there other Waterparks you can go to that has a better system than that?

    And what’s the point of being lazy in a lazy river if you can’t just lie on the tube and relax? :(

    • I don’t know. We have a friend who said there’s a bigger one in Korea, so we’ll check that one out and see if they’re any better :D

  27. Indoor water parks are the bombness! It’s nice to play around like it’s summer when it’s steering toward fall! You guys look like you had a lot of fun and it made me want to go to a water park and have a lot of fun too! Sad that they have such funky ways of paying and lack of cleaning but I’m glad you had a good time regardless!

  28. Simon, you looked like a badass lumberjack. And if you ever want to check out a wedgie-inducing water slide, cliff diver at Splish Splash in New York is insane.

  30. To be fair Simon, I think having water up you butt on slides is kind of a given. >< The biggest wedgie of my life came from a 120ft slide at Blizzard Beach in Orlando, FL. It's probably unavoidable.. XD

  31. If your ever in Texas. Get to Schlitterbahn! Probably one of the strongest group’s of waterparks in the world! Amazing attractions, state of the art rides and even two of the three parks have huge indoor sections where they heat the water up and allows the Parks to be opened almost year round. The parks are in New Braunfels (Near San Antonio), South Padre Island (On the Tip of the Texas Gulf Coast) & Galveston (Just south of Houston).
