Yongsan Station - I'Park Mall
Above Yongsan Station, there is a mall---I'Park. On the roof of I'Park, there is an ice-skating rink. Above the ice-skating rink, there is the sky. The sky is the limit. Keep that in mind while you are skating here. Don't let anyone tell you that a triple axel is impossible. Go to I'Park at Yongsan Station and show the world what your triple axel is made of.
The Scouting Report
The ice rink at I'Park sits in the mall's open-air courtyard. During the summer, the courtyard is home to various festivals and events. During the winter months, a small ice rink is set up. It's not the highest quality ice or the most spacious place, but it is still a fun place to try your hand...or foot...at skating.
Ice. It's a bit slick.
- If you get sick of ice-skating, there are plenty of other things to do in the area.
- Good location (if you consider being in the middle of Seoul a good location)
- Cheap (price)
- Cheap (quality)
Admission - 1,000 won
