The Haeundae Blueline Park Sky Capsule provides a romantic experience, where guests can take a ride in the air while relishing the enchanting view of Haeundae Beach. The Haeundae Sky Capsule stretches for two kilometres, with seven to 10 metres on an aerial route. It goes to and from Mipo Station to Cheongsapo Station.

There are three types of Sky Capsules: the two-seater, three-seater, and four-seater. These also feature a vibrant colour scheme, making for IG-worthy photo ops. The Sky Capsule moves at a steady speed, so you will have enough time to take pictures of yourself as well as the scenery from the vehicle.

  • November to February: 6pm
  • March, April, and October: 6.30pm

As for the three-seater and four-seater Sky Capsule, the one-way ticket is priced at ₩45,000 (~US$35 or S$47) and ₩50,000 (~US$39 or S$52) respectively.

We recommend getting the all-station boarding pass for a more comprehensive experience. But if you’re travelling on a budget and can only pick one, we recommend taking the Haeundae Beach Train instead of the Haeundae Sky Capsule. Nevertheless, if you want to experience both the train and the sky capsule, a package rate is available for two to four people, too. 

The package includes a one-way ticket for Haeundae Sky Capsule and an all-station boarding pass for the Haeundae Beach Train. For two people, it costs ₩59,000 (~US$46 or S$61); for three people, it costs ₩78,000 (~US$61 or S$81); and for four people, it costs ₩94,000 (~US$74 or S$98).
