Homerun Batting Cages
In the middle of Seoul's educational Mecca, there is a batting cage facility with a very important job. It is not there to impress. It is not there for comfort. It is there to help people, particularly students, relieve their stress before and after testing.
With that being said, anybody is welcome to pound a few balls.
The batting cages in Sinchon are perfect. They are cheap, convenient, and old. Basically, they are everything baseball should be in its perfect form.
Hours: 9:00 - 23:40. 7 days a week
Cost: 1000 won
Pitching speeds: 90km/h - 110km/h
There are various arcade games in the lounge. They will entertain you while you're waiting your turn.
Want something to eat or drink before or after taking a few cuts? You're in luck. You're in Sinchon. Walk in any direction and you will find some sort of cafe, restaurant, bar, etc. Check out our Sinchon Seoul Spots page for a few ideas. Enjoy.
