Zooraji

On the 9th floor of Shinsegae here in Busan is a big, open area that use to simply be an outdoor place you could go to sit and get some fresh air.  The space was recently converted into a play area called Zooraji that we would soon find out was a quirky mixture of dinosaur/pirate/zoo atmosphere.  I took the boys to play one morning, not exactly sure what to expect but hoping they'd enjoy themselves.
Boy did they ever!

 We were pleasantly surprised to find these gigantic dinosaurs!


 Connar insisted on finding T-Rex before we went any further...
 The dinosaurs looked kind of real....I can't help but think that triceratops is actually staring at Parker when I look at this picture.


 TrEAsuRe!



 MoRe TReaSuRE!



 To ride the carousel, you had to show a receipt from anything bought at Shinsegae that day.  Surprisingly, neither boy was interested in riding the carousel....
 ...and I soon realized why.  They spotted this splash pad.  Not knowing I might need their bathing suits here, I made sure I had their extra clothes in the backpack before letting them run into the water.  Once I gave the go ahead and stripped their shoes off, they couldn't get in fast enough!
 




 I took this picture of Connar standing on the hippopotamus but didn't realize until I got home and was looking through my pictures that I also caught the little boy in the front posing for his mom.....haaa!
 I can't even tell you how much fun Parker was having in the water.  He would stick his face directly above the spouts without worry that it might spray him, and when it did...MANY TIMES...he simply wiped his sweet little face off and went for it again.  :)
 He's screaming from excitement!


 

 And let me tell you about P's booty boo-tay.  That diaper was so full of water it looked like it might bust open at any minute!  Not only will we bring swim suits here again...we'll also bring a swim diaper for P.





 


This is a slide...you climb up the tail and slide down the neck...but it was closed.  :(



This map was all in Korean, but Connar said, "Mommy, wet me tell you what dis map says.  It says the pirate ship is here and T-Rex is here and water is here and the carousel is here.  Dats what it says Mommy."  :)

I think we may hit Zooraji up again for the splash pad fun some time next week.  I don't think it'll take much convincing to get the boys to tag along.  :)
