Location Okpo-dong, South Korea
Closed May 1999 (1999-05)

Okpo Land was an amusement park based in the outskirts of Okpo-dong, South Korea. It was shut down in May 1999[1] after a series of fatal accidents,[2] in particular the death of a child who fell from the duck rollercoaster ride.[3]

The remnants of Okpo Land were demolished in 2011, so that a hotel could be constructed on its former location.[4]

As of today, the history of Okpo Land remains unknown.
