Staying Indoors Has Never Been More Fun!

Are you in the mood for scuba diving 26 m down into the water? Or for skydiving against the wind blowing 360 km per hour? Or for cart racing along Formula 1 tracks? Did you know that you can enjoy all these indoor activities in Korea?

Welcome to the Deep and Serene World of Diving

K-26 Diving Pool in Gapyeong, Gyeonggi-do, is the deepest indoor diving pool in Asia. It has a step-by-step bottom, offering varying depths, including 1.3 m, 2.5 m, 5 m, 10 m, and 26 m. As such, you can enjoy both scuba diving and free diving! Get a three-hour or an all-day-long pass, and rent diving suit and gears as well as one oxygen tank free of charge. The depths between 1.3 and 5 m are reserved for novice divers. Meanwhile, beginner divers can head for the vertical and horizontal caves and a diving bell at 10 m deep. The pool simulates the actual terrain under the sea and offers opportunities for various drills. To reach 11–26 m deep, you must acquire an open water scuba diving license and/or a Level 2 or higher qualification for free diving. The diving pool’s best feature is the great music you can enjoy from underwater speakers. The sound makes the radiating drops and waves of water look as if they were dancing. From the windows on the walls of the indoor diving pool, you can also enjoy the beautiful view of the Cheongpyeong Lake.

Exhilarating Indoor Skydiving

Throw yourself into the wind blowing 360 km per hour, and you will instantly soar 10 m above the ground! This one-of-a-kind experience is available at Flystation Korea in Yongin. The cylindrical wind tunnel, which is 20 m high and 5 m wide, will send you on an exhilarating skydiving drift without the help of a plane. All guests must wear safety suits, hats, goggles, and earplugs before they enter the tunnel. You will also have to learn belly, the position where your arms are spread out and must remain evenly horizontal, to perform safe diving.
Having prepared all these things, you should be able to fly. After entering the tunnel, you will hover in the air in your belly position, holding the instructor by his hand. You must focus, or you may lose your balance and fly straight into the walls. Once you get a hang of it, you will be guided into high flying. It lasts for only 2 min, but it will be the most thrilling 2 min of your life. The instructor will keep holding you by your hand, so leave your fears and fly into the blowing wind.

Address: Flystation Korea, 521, Seongsan-ro, Pogok-eup, Cheoin-gu, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do

Indoor Cart Racing for an Explosively Fun Time!

‘K1 SPEED’, the international brand of indoor cart racing facilities, opened its first-ever Asian center in Korea. The center is also famous as a must-stop point for Formula 1 drivers before they go into actual racing. The circuit is designed to simulate actual F1 racetracks. Thus, completing a lap along the 200 m long tracks will make your heart beat with excitement.
You don’t need to worry about tailpipe emissions at all, as the vehicles offered are exclusively electric. Each vehicle also has a central control system that protects drivers against all possible collisions. There are carts for adults and carts for children. As such, this is, unsurprisingly, a popular family spot. Each race involves 12 laps around the racetracks, and it ends as soon as the fastest driver crosses the goal line. You can also get a record slip indicating your speed so that you can compare it to others’ in your group.

Address: K1 SPEED, 262, Hanchigol-gil, Seo-myeon, Hongcheon-gun, Gangwon-do
