Pororo Park is a fun kids’ play area based on a popular Korean cartoon character named Pororo, a fun loving penguin, and the adventures he has with his friends. For kids who are fans of the show, they will recognize the play version of Pororo’s house and other scenes throughout the park.
There is a ball pit, a bouncing area, a sand room, live shows, a tunnel and slide section, and plenty of places for photo ops.
At certain times, a fun train ride is available (times posted inside the park).
They also have craft and cooking classes, interactive video screens, a food cafe, and a toddler play area with a few of Pororo’s cartoons playing.
