I went to the Ilsan Onemount indoor waterpark.
I visited the waterpark on a rainy day.
The weather didn't bother me at all
because it was an indoor waterpark.
It turned out that waterpark visitors
could use the Healing Center as well!
It was a great opportunity to get refreshed.
I will now tell you about my visit to Ilsan Onemount.

I could see the waterslides outside, and they looked fun.
At first I thought the slides were outdoor attractions that were not open during fall and winter.
It turned out that the slides were the part of the indoor waterpark.

I went to Ilsan Onemount waterpark at the end of August.
Once you buy a ticket, you will get a receipt with a number.
A staff member tore off the bottom part of the ticket when I entered.
Check the number on your receipt to find your shoe locker with the same number.
The shoe locker key is your main locker key, so you'll want to be careful not to lose it.

Once you leave the locker room,
you will find the photo zone near the stairs to the indoor waterpark.
If you want to take photos, this is the best place to do it.

This is the main indoor pool.
It looks a bit like a beach.
The pool makes gentle waves.
There was no exciting wave pool
like the ones in big waterparks.

Sunbeds and tents are charged services.
You can use one after paying for it at the rental shop.
I went to this waterpark at the end of the season, so the indoor waterpark was not crowded at all.
No one was using sunbeds or tents.
You don't have to worry that they may be fully booked around this time.
Of course the situation would be different in summer, especially during the peak season.

There are no extremely exciting attractions in the indoor waterpark.
However, there are a variety of attractions and activities for kids.
I went on some waterslides, and it was pretty fun.

There were not many kinds of foods,
but I could find some snacks to appease my hunger.
They were a little bit expensive,
but you never expect reasonable prices at a waterpark.
I was just satisfied with the fact
that I could buy and eat some snacks at a food stand.

You can rent a life vest for KRW 6,000
with no deposit.
Just rent a life vest.
Then, you can enjoy the waterpark all day without worries.

The air pump zone is located in the corner.
You may inflate or deflate your own tube here.

The indoor waterpark had lots of different things to do.
It was a fun indoor playground for kids.
They seemed bit childish for grown-ups including me,
but they provided lots of fun for kids.
I just used the area for photos. ​

So what should grownups do here?
I recommend that you enjoy the Ventura River, which is an indoor lazy river.
Let your body float with the life vest and drift around the Ventura River. It's so relaxing.
You also have to wear a cap to use the Ventura River.
You can wear either a swim cap or a baseball cap. ​

You can find a hot tub further in.
You can enjoy bubble massage here.
All of the adults were in the hot tub.
I relaxed and relieved fatigue in the hot tub. I really enjoyed taking a rest here. ​

You can also find a small sauna.
I could use the sauna in between swimming.
The food court, hot tub, and sauna are all located in the same place.

One of the most interesting activities in Ilsan Onemount waterpark
was fish feeding!
It costs KRW 5,000.
You can feed fish using a feeding bottle.

You can also learn CPR here.
The waterpark has a variety of interesting activities.

I visited the waterpark at the end of August, so I could use the outdoor waterpark as well.
The outdoor waterpark closes its doors on September 1.
After that you have to wait until next summer to use it. ​

Anyway, in my opinion,
the facilities of the outdoor waterpark were better than expected.
There are more popular waterparks in other places, so I didn't even think about visiting Onemount.
But I really liked Onemount, and it was much better than expected.
Above all, it was kind of exotic.
It was a different kind of fun to enjoy swimming in the middle of the city full of buildings.

My favorite attractions were the Sky Boomerango and Coloride.
I heard that Coloride was faster,
but I liked the Sky Boomerango much better.

This slide felt like I was jumping into the clouds.
I was so surprised because it was much faster than expected.

You can enjoy a lazy river or other swimming pools as well in the outdoor waterpark.
I think the people who didn’t want to get sunburned were staying in the indoor waterpark,
so the outdoor waterpark was actually pretty quiet.

If you visit Ilsan Onemount waterpark, don't miss out on this place.
Onemount has a sauna called the Healing Center.
All the waterpark visitors can use the Healing Center for free.
The Healing Center is primarily for sports club members,
but waterpark visitors can use it as well.
Sauna clothing must be rented at the locker room
for KRW 3,000.

I took an elevator and headed for the Healing Center.
The entryway welcomed me with a colorful harmonium and chairs, reminding me of a vacation spot.

If you keep going inside, you will find a typical Korean sauna.
Saunas are always crowded with people.
However, the Ilsan Onemount Healing Center Sauna is not crowded at all.
The sauna was huge, but not many people were using it.
I could enjoy the quiet therapeutic atmosphere just as it was meant to be.

I went into the Ice Room first. The Ice Room is good for hot weather.
The sauna room was neat and clean.
The temperature was just right to dry the sweat off.

There was a variety of sauna rooms at different temperatures.
I relieved my fatigue from the waterpark,
enjoying the sauna for a while.

You can use a mat and a pillow to lie down on the floor,
and you can find massage chairs in the lounge.
You can use whatever you like. ​

The shelves were full of books.
You can take them out and read them at your leisure.
There were a variety of books including comic books, so people of all ages can enjoy reading here.
However, kids are not allowed in the Healing Center.
I think that is why the Healing Center is so quiet and pleasant.

There was also an outdoor terrace.
I could look over all of the attractions of Onemount Outdoor waterpark from the terrace.
The view was pretty different because of heavy rain.
I enjoyed the panoramic view here. ​

You can find a cafeteria in one corner.
It sells snacks and beverages.

Finally, I liked the pleasant atmosphere of the Relaxation Room.
The chair was comfortable, and its quiet atmosphere was relaxing.
I had a great time in the Indoor and Outdoor waterparks and the Healing Center Sauna
at Ilsan Onemount waterpark!
It is located in the city, allowing easy access to enjoy now and again. ​
