Although Everland is located in Gyeonggi-do, we chose Everland Blood City Halloween Festival as the top place to enjoy Halloween in 2022. Because this year’s Blood City was designed and directed by an Emmy Award-winning art director for Squid Game, Kyungsun Chae. In Blood City, you will feel like you are the protagonist of a horror movie with your friends. Here is more about the Everland Blood City Festival 2022.

TIP: There are so many performances and photo zones, but we picked the performance Crazy Zombie Hunt as the best one and Clean of the Dead Laundry as the best photo spot.
