A long time ago, there was a commercial going around. It was a catchy song, sung by SNSD and 2PM. Back then I really liked the commercial song for this so called “Carribean Bay”. Little did I know, that years later I would visit the place! I have always liked swimming, so when my friend suggested to go to this amazing swimming paradise, there was no way I would say no.
The waterpark is right next to the well known amusement park, everland. Upon entering we had to take an elevator to the right floor. There we could freely change into our swimming suits. We went to the ladies changing room. It was one big room with many lockers. For an European like me it was a little shocking to see everyone changed in the same room since we are used to having individual changing rooms. After changing into the swimsuits, we went to explorer the park.
Once again we were a little shocked. We were not allowed to go the deeper parts without a safety vest. You needed to purchase one before being able to have the real fun. Ofcourse we purchased one and took off into the park. There was an inside section and a big outside part with many glides, pools and a big wave pool. In the wavepool there was a part on the floor which had a different color from the rest. While I was in this section I was wondering why the color was different. I found out the hard way. The moment I looked up i saw a huge wave collapsing right on me! Luckily for me, I’m a good swimmer and I was able to come up quickly. After having a good laugh I went to enjoy the waves in the much deeper water. If you go to the park itself, please note that this marking is the place where the waves collapse!
The park itself was a great experience and the slides where a lot of fun too! Sadly it closes quite early. After having a nice day we went back to the lockers and dressing rooms. The showerroom was also a shared room. Here we showered ourselves with many other strangers. After we dressed back to our normal clothings and took the bus back home.
If you wanna go to this park I recommend you to go early. This is definitely worth a visit, as long as you are not shy to change in and out of clothes with strangers around you. The safety level is quite high. Though the safety belts are annoying because you can’t take a good dive. Either way it’s great for a good day with friends or family!
