You’ll also find water-based activities and rides, such as the Splash Chute Ride, for those who don’t mind getting their feet wet. Consider grabbing a spot nearby to take a photo as the cart hurtles down the ramp and creates a spectacular splash. We guarantee a well-timed shot will make for a next-level backdrop, but we can’t promise that you won’t get drenched.

From towering Gundam to chibi-cute robots, Masan Robot Land has them all. Evil-looking robots lurk near the water festival stage, but instead of making it rain bullets, they make it rain water.
