Robocar Poli Play Park

CONTRIBUTED BY CHRISTINE BRUNS

*Editor’s Note: This post is about a temporary exhibit at the War Memorial Museum running through August 31st 2014. The museum hosts a couple of these kid-oriented playgrounds/exhibits each year. If you’ve missed this one, keep your eye out in a few months for their next offering!

Looking for something fun to do in Seoul that will keep your kids busy (and possibly wear them out)? Head on over to the War Memorial of Korea and take them to the Robocar Poli Play Park this summer.

Robocar Poli is a Korean cartoon featuring transforming emergency vehicles named Poli (police car), Roy (fire truck), Amber (ambulance), and Helly (helicopter). Korea--Robocar Poli Play Park characters--Koreaeye.com

The park is located inside the War Museum, in the basement atrium on the right. Tickets are bought at the booth on the right (by the large drum) before you head down the stairs to the park.

As the brochure map shows, there are a number of attractions in the park.

As you enter, you’ll see a fun little train ride on your right – good for a few minutes of quiet activity.

Directly across from the train is a really cool zip line and ropes course, complete with safety harnesses and helpful attendants. My little guy really liked this section, and my husband and I both agreed that we would have loved this as kids!

There is also an area for pictures and a live character show – keep an ear out and watch for the costumed actors to pass through. The show is in Korean, but there is singing and dancing, so all kids can enjoy it. There is also a small cafe nearby.

Other attractions include a ball pit with ride-on bouncers, four separate bouncy houses, an inflatable climbing wall, and electronic race cars. As usual, the exit is through a mini gift shop featuring Robocar Poli toys and balloons.
