Seoul City plans to offer discounts and many diverse events for foreigners who visit the “Snow Flower Village, a snow sledding field located in Ttukseom Hangang Park, during the Feb. 2-6 Lunar New Year holiday.
The city will offer a 20 percent discount on entrance tickets to the sledding field for foreigners. Besides snow sledding, they will also be able to enjoy many other traditional Korean activities, such as top-spinning, throwing tuho and kicking jegi. (Foreigners are required to carry their alien registration card to receive the offered discount.)
The city will offer free snacks and free Polaroid pictures to foreigners who make reservations in advance for the sledding field and come to the site in groups of ten or more.
The sledding field will open throughout the holiday period. With just a single entrance ticket, visitors can use other facilities, such as its snow hill, 3-D theater and “air bounce” Ride. To enjoy its battery car ride, they need to pay an extra 2,000 won.
Security guards and medical personnel will be on duty to provide help should an accident happen. The village will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Feb. 20. Admission is 8,000 won for all ages. (Entrance fees will be charged for children aged over 36 months.)
