    Daejeon O-World, Daejeon

  • This place has zoo, safari, garden with beautiful flowers, and also amusement park. The zoo has a lot of animal collection, but as a person who's not a fan of zoos, I can't really enjoy my time in the zoo part. The amusement park is not big enough, as I remember I only can not more than 10 amusement ride. The most interesting part of this place is the flower world, which is a garden full of beautiful flowers. I can stay a whole day in this place just to enjoy the beautiful scent and colour of the flowers.

  • This is your one stop amusement center. It has everything to make you get that day going and exciting. I will visit there over and over again...

  • Nice place to hang out for small kids and kids in grade school.

  • If you have never been before, it's okay for an afternoon. It seems to be more aimed at the elementary school set. The rides are limited in quantity and entertainment value. The zoo is okay with a few big ticket animals, but the enclosures can be a bit depressing at times. The flower world part is not much to see unless you come in the right season. Don't go with high expectations and you'll have an okay time.

  • Wasn't really wowed by O-World, more for children, could be due for a revamp/refurbishment, it feels run down and needs a but of a face lift. There is a zoo located inside as well, was kind of disappointed at the lack of space these animals had. Kangaroos are from a place in the world that's hot, full of dirt and sand, but it felt so concrete here. Although zoo's aren't really the best thing for animals, the least we could do is give them some space to have a good run around. Also the seal tank so low in water, the bears do tricks to get food from customers but it didn't feel natural, I felt a bit bad for going. On the other had the Flowerland was beautiful, though in the middle of winter, it seemed so nice and refreshing to see all these flowers. Probably the best place in the whole area.

    Adventures at O World

    Adventures at O World

    Sorry I haven’t blogged recently. I didn’t realize it before I started blogging, but it takes up more time than I thought it would. And I wonder if anybody really reads my blog. Have I mentioned that I LOVE comments? Hint hint…

    Anyway….a couple of weeks ago, we had a holiday on a Thursday. Korean teachers had to go to school, but the guest English teachers didn’t have to go. So….a couple of friends and I decided to go to O World amusement park here in Daejeon. O World has 3 main parts: amusement park, zoo, and flower world. We went to all three.

    On my way to the subway to meet the girls (before our bus ride), I was waiting at a stop light and saw this little girl. She waved and posed for me. How precious!

    Finally got to O World….along with the rest of Daejeon. There were SO many families with young children!

    Waiting for tickets.

    At the entrance

    We headed right for the roller coaster.  The line was so short (there were so many kids) that we rode it twice.

    Check. Out. His. Uniform.

     Is that fun or what?

    Riding the big ship. Now let me just say that I LOVE riding rides. The faster, the better. Rides never make me sick. That is…until Korea.

    At Lotte World, we rode the Drunken Baskets (the tea cups ride), and I felt so sick afterwards. I wasn’t the only one.

    We sat at the top of the ship, and about halfway through the ride, I started to feel sick. Seriously? Yup. Seriously. I felt so nauseous.

    So nauseous that I couldn’t ride the next ride. So I was the designated photographer which was fine with me.

    Every time they came around, they had a different facial expression.

    Bad ship. Bad, bad ship.

     Can I take her home? Please? I will absolutely positively adopt a little Asian girl. I know this.

    Walking through the area with the statues.

    The picnic area.

    Check her out! Love her outfit!

    I had to get in a couple of jumping pics.

    Oh no! Where did Saree go?

    Now in the zoo part of O World. Meet Mr. Polar Bear.

    This zoo was in par with other Asian zoos. They have no regulations in zoos here. This one reminded me of the zoo in Vietnam. Most of the animals and their habitats just made me extremely sad. My heart ached for these animals. Some of the habitats were awful. You will see some of them.

    This is through glass. I had to “work” for this picture.

    I got a new boyfriend at O World….a baboon. He was very attracted to me. He showed off for me and put his hand up with mine. I should mention that he is a baboon. I was crouched down to his level with my hand up on the glass. He would run around his area and then come up and put his hand right on mine. And do it again and again. We ended up attracting a small crowd. He was a character!

    This is one of those habitats that almost made me cry. The tiger’s area.

    Korea has the coolest strollers! They are a pretty penny though.

    I’ll take her home too. Korean children are taught at a very early age how to pose for the camera. Can you tell?

    Families are everywhere having picnics. I started taking their picture, and they posed for me.

    The petting zoo.

    You could buy vegetables and feed the animals.

    One of the bird cages. You can see that it’s not that big.

    Lunch…or as Koreans say “lunchee”

    The eagle’s cage. Do you see how small it is? Made me so sad.

    Someone is molting.

    They loved each other and were playing with each other.

    You could buy food for the animals and feed them. This animal sure knew what he was doing!

    Look how the three of them are all laying the same! And there is one that is not like the others…

    The hyenas cage. It’s a bad picture with the glass, but their enclosure was so small. And you know the only thing I thought of were the hyenas in The Lion King. Remember them?

    The jaguar. There were cages up above where they could walk over us. This one seemed to love it!

    “What you looking at, Willis?”

    Flower Land. We just missed all the tulips. However, it was still really pretty.

    Do you see her pantyhose and high heels? At O World?

    Here’s another one. Tiny little dress. Pantyhose. High heels. Must be on a date. Ahhhhh….

    Alicia staring off in the distance

    Saree showing off her duck lips

    Back to the amusement park to ride the roller coaster again.

    Check out the Texas Rangers shirts!

    OK. OK. I know I took a picture of this guy’s buttocks. But….check out his heart keychain and the fact that he’s carrying his girlfriend’s purse. That’s what they do here in Korea. Carry their girlfriend’s purse. Ahhh….

    On the bus back to the subway….

    We stopped off at Eunhaengdong for shopping and found these lovely gems. Whitening point pads. In Korea, white skin is revered. So people wear face masks and long sleeves, carry umbrellas to block the sun, and wear white make-up.  So do not get a tan here!

    This is a definite visit for all. It is especially worth while during spring and fall. There is a theme park, a small zoo and a garden. The garden is beautifully designed with a big lake. They have a flower festival during spring which is worth a visit. A good place to take children.

    Good place to take fun with your family

    Sep 2014 • Couples

    O-world is a small theme park located in south of Daejeon, including zoo(Not big, but enough space to walk around 1~2 hours). It's very easy to get there, because it's close to city-center. I know, it's smaller than like Lotte-world in Seoul or Seoul-land in Seoul, but this place is for local citizens. Taking a day on holiday or weekends, this place will 'cure' you. One more, it costs about $10 to just enter(including park and zoo), $25 including every service. It has a couple of restaurants inside, but tastes bad and expensive. Don't forget to bring a picnic-basket!

    Pretty enjoyable if you like to see animals in O World Daejeon

    Nov 2019 • Friends

    We visited around afternoon till closing time 6pm. We only purchased the entrance ticket (without rides) and subsequently purchased a ride on the safari separately when we wanted to see the lions, elephant and zebras only in that session. But we didn’t find it worth but you get to see standing bears trying to wait for rewards from the bus (that drive inside). The ride in that safari bus is about 5-7mins. Too short for the amount we paid.

    Flowers sections according to the staff during November there’s nothing to see.

    We took bus there and bus back from hotel nearby bus stop.

    Not all area are up when we visited. Some area like seal session was closed but not mentioned in the map. There is no English map when we requested for one.

    Some Xmas decors are up while some Halloween still being taken up when we visited.

    Go Late Afternoon into Early Evening

    Oct 2017 • Friends

    Don't skip this delightful place if you have a day of beautiful weather and want to be outdoors! The two of us spent 4 hours (or more) exploring Zooland, Flower land, Bird land, the maze, plus two dance shows. We went the day before Chuseok (Thanksgiving); it was not too packed. The first thing we did was the safari, because we had to stand in line. Zooland was filled with so many animals I have never heard of, let alone seen even on Animal Planet. All of the signs were translated in English to read the names of the animals, but much of the animal information was written in Korean. Also, there are several vending machines to purchase food for the animals. Guests are encouraged to feed the camels, deer, bears, monkeys, etc. Very cool. Flower land was the best part to me; the displays and designs were colorful, creative and gorgeous. There are family restaurants there too, but we did not try any. The only thing I wished there was more of were maps translated in English and the payment details at the ticket counter. We didn't ride any rides; they seemed to be for children - but if I return I will ride the carousel. Definitely recommend arriving around 3pm to see the animals and flowers during the day, and see the sunset for the light displays and performances.

    May 2017 • Family

    When in Daejeon, it is NICE to visit O-World Park. This is a combination of botanical garden and Zoo! In addition, the park offers some rides and an entertainment area where free performances (dance and songs) are done! Every season offers a particular activities and sites to enjoy

    Great day out

    Mar 2021 • Family

    We took our children 3, 4 and 6. They loved it. It was around $60 for the five of us which was cheaper than we expected. Try to do the safari early. By the time we realized where the safari line was it was so long that we decided to skip it. We spent about 5 hours doing rides and seeing the animals. We didn't make it over to the flower and bird part. It's a place we'd go back to.

    Flower garden nice/ Zoo horrific

    Apr 2019 • Friends

    Good things first
    - it's nice for an afternoon with friends
    - the flower gardens are very pretty
    - the rides are fun

    Bad: and I'm not an expert but these were very obvious things
    - the Zoo and many animals were in poor condition
    - many cages were just overpopulated - severly
    - the monkeys on the picture were in a maybe 10 to 10 meter cage with no climbing possibilities and an obvious skin condition
    - there were more specially monkeys with skin conditions that didn't seem to be treated
    - there was a very little monkey baby in desperate need of attention all alone. At that age it should be with a careperson at all times.
    - many animals had no access to food or water
    - donkey hoofs were probably never in their life treated and must have pain walking

    Average amusement park, loveable zoo

    O-world is one of the few famous attractions here in Daejeon. Well, for me, it is just an average amusement park. The entrance fee is around 12,000 won (without the rides), and the ride all you can pass is around 29,000 won (a bit expensive although nothing remarkable with the rides).

    But i must say that I enjoyed the zoo! If you are an animal lover like me, you must visit o-world. It has different kinds of bears (the polar bear is sooo cute ♡), they have penguins, monkeys, crocs, snakes, tiger safari etc.

    Also, nearby o-world is the 쁘리 공원 (ppuri park) which is a nice park that you can visit for free.

    Very beautiful in the spring!

    Feb 2021 • Solo

    This place is definitely one of those areas you want to visit in the spring. Cherry blossoms start blooming end of March and the tulips are just popping up. The animal park was fun too. The bears love those treats. Don’t miss bird land and visit the Lorikeets. Definitely recommend you show up in afternoon after crowds start dieing down. I saw the whole park and did everything except rides. 2-3 hours is enough to hit the highlights, but I recommend at least 4. If you have more time, you can spend the whole day here riding the rides. All inclusive ticket=29000₩ Adult ticket for all sites=12000₩ Safari ticket=6000₩ I bought the adult ticket and safari ticket to enjoy all the animal sites. Bring 1000₩ bills for feeding the animals. There are many vending machines with food for almost all the animals. That was super fun! Good luck and have fun!

    Seoul, South Korea63 contributions

    There r 2 kinds of fees: just entry and free ticket(entry+attractions). just entry : 12000(adults), 7000(-18yrs & over 65yrs), 5000(-12yrs, not exactly) free ticket : 29000, 23000 and 20000 respectively. p.s. in winter season, they are much cheaper than normal fees, since no attractions.

    Read all replies


    How much are the tickets? Is there a family ticket and can it be booked in advance?

    There are a range of prices depending on what you want to experience: safari, flower land, bird land, zoo land, amusement park. There are several prices for an individual or groups listed. The time of day, season and scheduled events have different prices as well. I went to the website to check pricing in English and was able to price my trip easily. I did not find online purchasing option. We bought tix at the entrance gate booths. Have a good time!
