About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Enchanted Kingdom Theme Park Attractions/Rides/Promo/Discounts

    The first time Tutubi visited Enchanted Kingdom was in December 1998 with his friends, this time it's a company-initiated family day where all employees' families trooped to the theme park in Sta. Rosa, Laguna with families in tow all expenses paid.

    So what are new attractions/rides at Enchanted Kingdom since the last time he's there? There's the Zorb ball on the water, Bungee fun which is like a trampoline and bungee jumping combined, the large swimming pools/wave pools (require separate entrance fees/tickets), go cart race track, 4D Discovery Theater et al...

    enchanted kingdom ferris wheelbesides the carousel, what's a theme park without the ferris wheel?

    enchanted kingdom rialtothe Rialto, used to be Tutubi's favorite but now eclipsed by the 4D Discovery theater

    The Rialto ride featured "Speed Racer" that's not really a good one since the point of view is of the spectator and did not feel like you're the one in the cockpit. Tutubi prefers the ride to be a simulation that he's the one driving and not the one watching the race.

    Did Tutubi enjoyed the latest facilities of Enchanted Kingdom this time? He only got to experience the 4D Movie theater and the Rialto, beyond that, he merely stayed at a bench near the ferris wheel playing with Tutubi, Jr., who's too young to even ride the carousel

    Family day ended with a musical titled "Electrifying Kiss of Summer" then capped by a fireworks display at 8pm (that scared Tutubi, Jr. and made him cry).

    It's family day, bonding with family doesn't have to be expensive even if Tutubi has an unlimited day pass ride-all-you-can ticket.

    --

    Enchanted Kingdom Entrance Fees(admission prices/tickets), shuttle service schedules, and other information can be found on Enchanted Kingdom's official website or by calling their published contact numbers.

    How to get to Enchanted Kingdom?

    The easiest way is to ride the Enchanted Kingdom shuttle service (fare: P250.00) at Ayala Terminal to and from the theme park. directions to Enchanted Kingdom If you're coming with your own car, from SLEx, take Sta. Rosa exit, turn left after paying the toll fees at the toll gate, drive past over the SLEx bridge then turn right to the road where the ferris wheel is visible. The same corner is also the spot to take tricycles to Enchanted Kingdom for those commuting there.

    Enchanted Kingdom promos on Mother's day is free entrance for mothers on Mother's day, no information if an equivalent free tickets for fathers on Fathers Day June 20.

    I was there escorting VIPs in the holy week of 2009. I only got to experience the 3D movie (or was it 4D according to you?). I was just roaming around most of the time and didn't get to experience other rides.
    Someday when my baby is big enough to experience the rides, I'll bring my family here...

    dodong, as you wish i'll post something about the 4d theater experience hehe

    photo cache, that's a very good question but sorry I don't yet know the answer. there's no hotel there unlike Hong Kong Disneyland hotel...probably in Sta. Rosa or just drive to Tagaytay

    carlotta, parang pambata pero may nakita ako adults who also tried the zorb balls on water

    hi, i was just wondering, aside from the zorb ball, the water park, the 4D theater and the Bungee fun, are there other new attractions?
    And btw, would you know if the Bungee fun is only temporarily there or will they be permanently in Enchanted? thanks!

    I visited the theme park before to treat my whole family. It was great and almost the same attraction from other theme park oversea. The best thing is both adults and kids can have fun. I will visit again when im back in philippines.
