Skyline Luge Tong-yeong Named One of Korea’s ‘100 Must-Visit Tourist Spots’
Skyline Luge Tong-yeong has been named as one of Korea’s ‘100 Must-Visit Tourist Spots’ (100 MVTS). The top 100 list is compiled every 2 years by Ministry of Tourism in collaboration with Korea Tourism Organization, who select and honour the 100 best tourist spots in Korea.
The 100(MVTS) accolade is a tremendous achievement for Skyline given the attraction has only been open since 2017. It was also the only tourist spot to make the list representing Tong-yeong City.
Korea’s first ever Luge, Skyline Luge Tong-yeong, sits directly on the beautiful Mt. Mireuk in Tong-yeong overlooking the South Sea and offers a fun-filled outdoor activity, popular with both domestic and foreign visitors. Guests can ride a ‘Luge’ cart on specially designed tracks which include twists, turns and tunnels. In its first year of operation Skyline recorded more than 1.9 million rides.
James Dudfield, General Manager of Skyline Luge Tong-yeong said “We’re really happy to receive such great news at the beginning of 2019 and want to say a big thank you to everyone for their support of the Skyline Luge. We’re also very excited to see we were one of the few attractions to make the highly regarded 100 Must-Visit list”
The 100(MVTS) were determined as part of a rigorous selection process that considered representativeness, attractiveness, future growth probability and quality management.
Since inventing the Luge in 1985, Skyline Luge International has spent more than 30 years refining its product. The company hosts more than seven million Luge rides annually, across the globe. Skyline has spread to six international locations with more in the pipeline, including Skyline Luge Busan due to open in 2020/21.
Dudfield says ‘Skyline is committed to the continuous improvement of its track and cart designs, as well as customer experience and safety measures. From the assessment standards of 100MVTS, we can see people highly regard Skyline’s representativeness and future growth probability which is fantastic to hear.”
“It’s been a great start to the year and we’re looking forward to hosting more guests in 2019”
