Surprisingly charming little theme park one hour's drive south of Manila featuring a looping roller coaster, a flume ride, a river rapids ride and a 3-D cinema showing (at the time of writing) a 20-minute version of 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' starring Brendan Fraser. The Disneyesque entry gate and a Universalesque street scene leave little doubt where inspiration for the park came from, but the overall innocent charm of the place makes this lack of originality...

Manila Ocean Park

Visited 2009. Given that this oceanarium just opened, I thought it was quite disappointing. Seen superior oceanariums, e.g. in Osaka, Dubai and the Bahamas. Just does the job, nothing special...

Star City

Visited 2009. Very desolate, mainly indoor theme park with lots of scary-looking Disney characters painted on walls. Old ride equipment and unpleasant stares by staff. Strongly not recommended...

Resorts World Manila

Visited 2012. Must not be confused with Resorts World Singapore and Genting, since this casino/hotel hybrid across Manila airport hosts nothing close to a theme park...

Storyland Cebu

Visited 2014. Part of SM City Cebu mall. One of those drab, dark, indoor family entertainment centers located in the basement. Feels like the end of civilization...

Sky Experience Adventure

Visited 2014. The upper floors of Cebu's landmark Crown Regency hotel house a whole little theme park: there's a 4-D cinema with passable Steven Spielberg film-inspired 3-D movies made in China, black light mini golf (sweet!), a zip line between skyscrapers, and the neat 'Edge Coaster', a slow moving vehicle orbiting the outer edge of the building's 38th floor. Leaning over the brink of the city's tallest skyscraper at an angle of up to 55 degrees, with only the lap bar...

Starland Theme Park

Visited 2014. Apocalyptic-looking indoor/outdoor theme park on a mall's roof south of Manila. Sports a hilariously scary suspended monorail that looks like made in North Korea...

X-Site

Visited 2014. Shopping center amusement arcade equipped with a gentle Dutch-made (Vekoma) roller coaster...

Splash Island

Visited 2014. Charming, small, well-landscaped water park that makes the best of its awkward location merely 20 meters (!) off a major highway. Highlights are two slide towers with lots of slides made in the 90's, and a wave pool facing a sandy beach with themed cabanas...

Storyland Quezon City

Visited 2014. Part of SM Fairview Mall. Compared to its local competitors, a rather clean and bearable family entertainment center/amusement arcade-cum-roller coaster...

Fun Ranch

Visited 2014. Charming and colorful small farm-themed outdoor amusement park, with an emphasis on kiddie rides. Comes with an arc-themed zoo called "Avilon" and aquarium adjacent to it. ...

World of Fun

Visited 2014. Unkempt indoor amusement park located in Sta Lucia East Grand Mall. Has a small roller coaster and a hilarously short ghost train with a duration of 50 seconds (20 seconds of which are in the dark.)...

Resorts World Manila Bayshore

Visited the future site in 2012. Announced...

DreamPlay by DreamWorks

Visited 2015. KidZania-sized and -inspired indoor children playground with attractions such as climbing walls, cooking classes and a small 3-D cinema. Charming DreamWorks theming, but not really a 'theme park'. Adults are not allowed in without the company of a kiddo...

KidZania Manila

Visited 2016. New & neat KidZania branch, slightly smaller than the average. Great atmosphere, fantastic staff and probably the best location in Manila for an attraction of its kind...

SM By the Bay Amusement Park

Visited 2016. Permanent funfair sporting a Ferris wheel and various people accelerators. The best thing about it is its location between the gargantuan Mall of Asia and the shoreline...
