Enchanted Kingdom, Laguna: Revisiting A Chilhood Fear

Feetpillars went to Enchanted Kingdom!

The Story

During my childhood, I have this unexplained fear of going to Enchanted Kingdom. That’s why even my parents urged me to join our field trip during my elementary days, I refused. Maybe because it is the time wherein bus bombing in Manila is the biggest news I am seeing on television. Anyway, I managed to successfully go to Enchanted Kingdom, with my travel buddy, Sonny. Of course.

This post is a late one since we visited the theme park many months ago with only my 8MP-camera smartphone. I rarely took photos during our visit then, because we focus on riding and trying all the rides and attractions as we could. Anyway, I think it is worth posting here so allow me to do it and provide up to date details as I can.

Enchanted Kingdom

Enchanted Kingdom opened its doors in Sta. Rosa Laguna on the year 1995.

We walk until we reach Enchanted Kingdom.

I don’t know how the owners arrived in the name of this place but this is actually a amusement park that caters not only children and teenagers but interestingly, adults as well. Currently covering 25 hectares, with an on-going expansion plan, Enchanted Kingdom or EK provides around 30 rides and attractions. Among the famous one is the Wheel of Fate and Space Shuttle. But, oops. I can’t make myself ride the latter, I just can’t. Well, maybe next time. 😀

Victoria Park.
Wheel of Fate.

EK is divided into seven themed zones namely Victoria Park, Portabello, Boulderville, Midway Boardwalk, Brooklyn Place, Spaceport, and Jungle Outpost. Victoria Park will be the first one to welcome you as it is the location of the gate. The said zone was patterned from United Kingdom, specifically during Queen Victoria’s era. Midway Boardwalk carries most of the theme park’s rides and thus, this is typically the most crowded zone.

Brooklyn’s Place.
Let’s take a quick shot here.

By aesthetics, Brooklyn Place is the one I liked the most due to its mood of 1940s New York Era. On the other hand, Boulderville will generally allure children and young teenagers.

Rialto 4D Theater

It is our first time to watch a short movie/film on a 4D theater.  That’s how it feels huh! Sprinkle of water is fine, but I am hurt when suddenly there is a pointed object on my back. Haha.

Looking for Eldar

There is a cultural show held every operating day in EK. It depends on what culture is  currently portrayed during your visit. But usually, Eldar The Wizard will thank you at the end of each show. That’s I guess the only similarity. Haha.

Cultural Show.

Eldar is the amusement park’s mascot, and a dedicated zone for him is currently on the works.

Spending A Day Young and Free

If you are looking for a quick time-off from your busy life, Enchanted Kingdom is here to enchant you to feel young, free and better.

Air Race.

Air Race looks so simple but it makes my toes shake like crazy! There are many other rides that you will surely enjoy like Disk-O-Magic, Anchor’s  Away, Ekstreme Tower, Rio Grande Rapids, Jungle Log Jam, among the others. See more rides and attractions here.

The Day Concluded

The day concluded with spectacular fireworks before Enchanted Kingdom closes its gates for the night. What a beautiful way to say goodbye. See you again soon in Marsynthea, Eldar! I hope Princess Victoria will be there too. 🙂
