Other Things to Do

In addition to the 13 rides, you’ll find the National Taiwan Science Education Center and Children’s Theater nearby. The former is a fantastic place to learn about different technologies (e.g., semiconductors and physics).

The latter is a space that hosts various child-friendly programs and performances.

If you’re like me and love to collect souvenir stamps, get a free stamp with the park’s logo. This isn’t something to do, but it’s an “activity” to consider.

Or check out the gift shops and buy stuff. Don’t want to visit stores? Check out all the vending and gashapon machines throughout the park. A lot of these are around Gourmet Street.

If you’re preparing for a wedding, you could also do wedding photography.

Then there’s Hopping Square. It’s a space where you’ll find a bunch of outdoor performances.

Jiantan and Shilin Station also have YouBike rental stations that’ll allow you to rent bikes to ride to the park. If you’re coming with kids, I recommend renting a car or taking an Uber or taxi.
