Spooky Summer Fun: Blue Ghost Night at Samsung Lions Park

Temperatures may be rising, but the upcoming Samsung Lions baseball games are sure to leave you chilled to the bone.  If you’re looking for some spooky summer fun, cheer for the home team while having a frighteningly good time with “Blue Ghost Night” at Samsung Lions baseball park.  Part baseball game, part splash zone, part Halloween, Blue Ghost Night is a wet and wild way to watch the eight-time Korean championship baseball team in some of their last home games of the summer.  Get scared, get soaked, and have fun!
For those with children, fear not - Blue Ghost Night is a mild, family-friendly event that kids of all ages will enjoy.  Festivities include scary face painting, a “ghost tunnel” that sprays cool mist, water gun fights, splash zones, and plenty of creepy figures to strike a pose with.
Fans sitting behind the Lions’ bullpen, and to a lesser degree behind center field, can expect to get fully soaked by a combination of water cannons and water guns, the latter of which you can bring on your own.  If you’re sitting in one of these sections, bring an umbrella or show your ticket to one of the attendants - they will provide a poncho to keep you somewhat dry.
If you want to take a break, head down to Food Street, a corridor of restaurants set up to look like food trucks.
As the sun sets on the stadium, Samsung Lions Park is transformed into a haunted arena of roaming zombies, creeping quietly up and down the stadium seats looking to startle their next victim.  Meanwhile, fans wearing ghost-like ponchos scream and cheer for the Lions while getting doused with sprays of water.  It’s a spooky - and wet - twist to a baseball game, but that’s what makes it all the more fun.
