South Korean integrated resort Paradise City will reopen two key attractions next month, more than a year after closing both due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Operator Paradise Co said Wednesday that European-inspired art spa CIMER and indoor theme park Wonderbox will both reopen on 16 July, having undergone remodelling during their pandemic-forced closure.
Both will also hold special preview events at each attraction later this month with capacity restricted to 50%.
CIMER is described by Paradise as a European-inspired art spa putting a new spin on Korea’s jjimjilbang culture, entertaining its guests through weekly pool parties and theme-based facilities.
Wonderbox is an indoor family amusement park built on the concept of a night-time fair, featuring adventure rides and performances.
Amidst the rising anticipation for travel due to the expansion of COVID-19 vaccination, the reopening of Cimer and Wonderbox will be a signal to target domestic travel demand in earnest, said a Paradise representative.
We will do everything we can to ensure safety and so that people can enjoy the fun with confidence.
Paradise Co which also operates Paradise Walkerhill in Seoul, Busan Casino and Jeju Grand recently reported a loss of KRW18.20 (US$16.1 million) in 1Q21, coming off a FY2020 loss of KRW109.85 billion (US$98.4 million) 0hich due to the impact of the pandemic on international visitation.
Paradise City is 55% owned by Paradise Co and 45% by Japans Sega Sammy Holdings the latter of which is currently part of a consortium alongside Genting Singapore and others aiming to develop an integrated resort in Yokohama, Japan.
