Pyongyang citizen's Night life at Kaeson Youth Park

From my trip to North Korea in April 2017 2017年4月の北朝鮮旅行から
kaeson youth park, Pyongyang, DPRK
My visit to Kaeson youth park, Pyongyang, DPRK.
As a theme park enthusiast, I guess it's interesting that my itinerary in Pyongyang includes this.
The park, located near the Kim Il Sung Stadium and Arch of Triumph, has about 10 rides like the swinging hammer (from China), freefall, a lying down roller coaster (from Italy) as well as a arcade room. Although, comprising only of an area of 40 hectares (yes, smaller than the usual theme parks in China), the park is well maintained.
According to my guide, people pay for each ride at $1-2 usually and of course, it’s free for us. He also mentioned there’s 5 theme parks in DPRK.
We went in the day time so there were hardly anyone.
I enjoyed the bumper cars, can you imagine delegates from all over the world as well as North Korean happily bumping into each other! Just amazing how everyone has a kid in us. The barrier and any distrust, just disappeared. Priceless experience!
Kaeson Youth Park, Pyongyang North Korea
The renovated Kaeson Youth Park in Pyongyang opened in spring 2010. It features new (italy-made) rollercoasters, auto-scooter and a freefall-tower and is open daily from 7pm to midnight (according to our guide).
As you can see, there were a lot of people, but we did not have to wait in the queues.
????????360° Inside North Korea: Kaeson Youth Park | Pyongyang, North Korea
A 360° image from the Kaeson Youth Park in downtown Pyongyang - not quite the abandoned, white elephant many think it might be. Usually full of families and young soldiers having fun in the evening (at least the more well off ones, based in the capital city)! =]
Just an old photosphere image from 2014 so not the best stitching but hopefully gives a feel of what the theme park looks like - the Rollercoaster Tycoon sound effects have been added to make it a tad bit more immersive! =]
Camera: Samsung Galaxy 3 (hence the poor quality ... sorry!)
Thanks for watching!

just the two of us in the fairgrounds. Calling this an amusement park would make it waaaay too big.

Kaeson Youth (amusement) Park, DPRK
At Kaeson Youth (amusement) park, speaking with a group of 14 year olds about the park, whether they'd come there prior (yes, many times), if it was affordable (yes, inexpensive) and what their favourite ride was. Later in the week I saw another amusement park. Seems like DPRK authorities actually provide affordable entertainment to youths (and adults) in addition to the (free) impressive extra-curricular education/cultural/sports programs at the Children's Palace.

Z-force drop tower at Kaeson Youth Park, Pyongyang
A 60 meter drop tower (Zamperla Z-force) at the Kaeson Youth Park in Pyongyang. Nice view from the top, with the Arch of Triumph (of course a bit higher than the one in Paris...) just outside the park. In any other city in the world you'd also have a brilliant view on the city skyline, but in Pyongyang, only darkness....
