I have ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS loved theme parks, there is just something about these places that me feel alive and energized (well, more than the usual at least)
So a few weeks ago, we decided to head on over the Laguna to visit ENCHANTED KINGDOM (and yes, we felt a teensy weensy bit over age, but who cares!)
So, since we WERE students during the school year that had just ended, we brought our school IDs to avail of their “Student Kasummer Ekstravaganza” Promo! So to all those students out there, all you need to bring is yourself and your student ID and you can get the Ride-All-You-Can ticket for P450 (Regular admission is P500) PLUS a slice of Aloha Pizza (one with pineapples) from pizza hut and a regular coke drink. (AWESOME!)
First thing we rode was the “Flying Fiesta”, which was the one with “swing seats”, such a classic fun breezy ride.

Next up, was a NEW ride! At least for us it was new, since we haven’t been here for years! It was just opened last September, it’s called the “Disk O Magic”, and it spins on itself while going up and down the curved platform surface!
Totally a MUST TRY RIDE! I personally have never ridden a ride similar to this, and trust me, I’ve been to A LOT of amusement parks everywhere, I’m practically an amusement park expert if I say so myself, so this was definitely a ride to experience.
My shake-y smile after that intense rush of a ride!
Another relatively new ride, is the “EKstreme” which is a drop from 120 feet! Awesome RUSH! Try screaming on your first ride, bet you cant! The first time I rode a drop-ride like this, I was so shocked that no scream came out of my terrified opened mouth! Probably something to do with the sudden drop.
As for the wet rides, “Riogrande Rapids“ and it’s unpredictable raft turning rapids will always be a fun group experience.
Disclaimer: Actual raft is not the one seen in the photo above.
Ahh, the “Jungle Log Jam“, this isn’t really up there with my favorites, but we always keep riding this over and over for the photo opportunity at the top!
Of course, you can’t leave EK without riding the “Space Shuttle“, that backward thrust to the loopty loops never grows old!
We went on a Friday and amazingly, THERE WERE NO LINES! More time to ride again and again for us!
We wanted the front-most seats so we had to wait a while, in the mean time I took to taking #selfies
Board walk area! See how un-crowded the place is. Plus the weather was perfect that day! Not too sunny and hot, but it didn’t rain.
Another roller coaster-type ride was the “Roller Skate”, where you sit in a huge roller skate and breeze through the coaster tracks, not the most intense of rides, so if you’re not so much into extreme rides, this ones for you!
Another classic ride for any amusement park is the “Anchors Away” I mean who wouldn’t like to be hurled 70 degress vertically in the air on a giant ship?
After all those extreme rides, we took a break to see the view EK has to offer on the “Wheel of Fate“!
I FINALLY GOT TO TASTE LIL’ ORBITS! They were yummy:)
As we were about to leave, this carnival game caught our eye, so many people were lining up to try it! The EK staff made it look so easy to climb, so after studying their moves and thinking up strategies on how to make it to the top, we decided to give it a try!
Jed and Niel’s try
As with everything, the day had come to an end. Enchanted Kingdom is and always will be an Enchanted place for kids and kids at heart!
