Magical Moments at Enchanted Kingdom

The Magic lives on .... ENCHANTED KINGDOM  !

It was Christmas Eve and  I have decided to take Manang Daisy (my stepmom's sister), Darling (my stepsister) and two of our household members, Elsa and Ivan to Enchanted Kingdom.  It was a Christmas treat for them before they go back to their respective hometowns, Bohol and Bacolod.  They have not been to this park and they were very excited to see the place and have fun and relaxation.

Enchanted Kingdom is the very first and only world class theme park in the Philippines which first opened to the general public on October 19, 1995.  From that time onwards, the magic spell spread fast and it has become a popular destination among locals and tourists, young and old. 

This 15.5 hectare kingdom is the "Disney Land" of the Philippines" situated in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.  The theme park has incredible, heart-stopping thrill rides, beautiful children's playgrounds, carnival stuffs, souvenir shops, food and entertainment.  There are seven (7) park zones that takes you to a journey back in time across different eras :

VICTORIA PARK ZONE is inspired by the era of Queen Victoria's rule.  In this zone, you can meet the park's mascot, Eldar the Wizard and the main attraction is the Grand Carousel.  Other features includes XPP Extreme Paintball, Bungee Fun, Eldar’s Specialty Shoppe, Princess Victoria's Dream Shop, Victoria Souveni Carts, Victoria Photo by Trans Ocean and Thrift Shop.

BROOKLYN PLACE ZONE is a theater and shopping zone that takes you to a time travel down the street of Brooklyn, New York in the 1940s.  It gives you a recollection of slapstick comedies and silent movies during the era.  The main attraction is the "Rialto", Brooklyn's motion simulator theater which combines sight, sound and movement.  You are not just watching the movie but you feel you are in the movie.

RIALTO's "Journey to the Center of the Earth". The main film is a montage of clips from the 2008 film Journey to the Center of the Earth. The 15 minute film takes guests on a journey through a never-before-seen world where they discover creatures and objects that are unimaginable.

 PORTABELLO ZONE  has a colorful carribean atmosphere.  It is a  place in Panama in the Carribean Sea where the riches of the Incas were shipped by the Spaniards.  This zone houses the largest attraction in the Enchanted Kingdom, the "Rio Grande", a wet and wild adventure.  It also features the Flying Fiesta, a giant rotating swing and the 4D Discovery Theater that will make you experience thrill and action while watching the movie.
