A sudden change of plans for our family weekend travel led us to Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. EK, as the theme park is popularly known, is arguably the most popular of its kind in the Philippines. It was my first time to visit, so I was quiet excited.

Here’s  a list of the activities that we tried

l. Ekstreme Tower – a big challenge for those who, like me, are afraid of heights.

3. Flying Fiesta – the least extreme ride that we tried

4. Jungle Log Jam – prepare to get wet and be ready for a high drop.

5. Wheel of Fate – a giant Ferris wheel that gives a good view of Sta. Rosa town.

We did not try the roller coaster because it was too extreme for me. There are also many kid-friendly rides in EK so expect your children to have a day full of delight and laughter.
