4. Love Land
Jeju Love Land is a theme sculpture park based on sensuality and eroticism. You’ll need to be 20 or above for this one. Love Land is the first sexual theme park in Korea.
There are indoor and outdoor spaces of admiration. While the indoor displays cartoon-like imagery, the outdoor is a play field of salacious statues of various sexual acts — from kissing to ‘doing’ — with a tinge of humor.
Sexual education for newly wedded couples perhaps? Oh, how kinky…

Kimnyoung Maze Park ( Maze Land)
If you ever need a break from the roller coasters, get yourselves a MAZE in the world’s longest stone maze located at the Maze Land. Pun intended.
Maze Land is a themed park boasting the world’s longest stone maze, measuring roughly 5.3km in total length. The maze is made mainly using stone and wood found on Jeju
You’ll be glad to know that this unique theme park on Jeju Island has two more mazes — the wind maze and another shaped as a Jeju female diver, haenyeo.
These mazes were built on the principle of ‘samda’, a Jeju dialect term that refers to the three items found on the island that are in abundance — wind, rocks and women.
You will also get to bathe in the wonders of Mother Nature as you navigate through the mazes.
