Daejeon O-World (Formerly “Daejeon Zoo”) was established when the Daejeon Zoo and Joy Land, an amusement park, were integrated under the supervision of the Daejeon City Corporation. The project cost a whopping 40 billion won and resulted in the construction of Flower Land (580,000m²) in addition to the renamed Zoo Land and the preexisting Joy Land.
The three main sections of Daejeon O-World are Zoo Land, Joy Land, and Flower Land. Zoo Land is currently home to a total of 600 animals of 130 different species including American black bears, Bengal tigers, lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and ostriches. Amusement rides, waterslides, and four-season sledding are housed at Joy Land. Flower Land boasts a number of smaller sections such as Rose Garden, Four Season Garden, Herb Garden, and Maze Garden and is home to a total of 150,000 tress of 100 different species and 200,000 flowers of 85 different species. An outdoor stage and concert hall are also located in the area.
There are plenty of things to see and enjoy in every corner of Daejeon O-World. Just beyond Festival Street, visitors will find a large (3000m²) pond with a fountain that shoots water as high as 20m. At night, colorful lights illuminate the pond and fountain, creating a dazzling scene. The water from the fountain is also used as a water screen for special performances.
In recent years, O-World expanded its attractions to include Herbivore Safari (with around 20 deer) and Wolf Safari (with about 7 wolves) in the area between Zoo Land and Flower Land.
