What to explore at Enchanted Kingdom?
Enchanted Kingdom is the Philippines’ only world-class theme park. Though technically not in Metro Manila, it’s only a 40-minute drive from the city. The park, often referred to as EK by the locals, is divided into zones.
The Victoria Park takes you back to the Victorian era. This is where you can ride the Grand Carousel, and entertainers wearing turn of the century costumes can be found roaming around, adding to the charm of the venue.
Midway Boardwalk is reminiscent of Coney Island, and is home to one of the most popular rides in the park, Anchor’s Away. The Jungle Outpost will bring to mind the wonders of the Amazon jungle, and the Spaceport has the famous triple loop roller coaster. More attractions have been added since EK opened in 1995, so plan on spending the whole day here.

It's what you can say is the Philippine's own little Disneyland. Located 15 minutes from Sta. Rosa exit, the park greets you with a huge parking lot for all kinds of vehicles from bicycles to buses. At a very relaxed pace, one can finish all the rides in less than a day assuming the visit is on a school day as lines for rides would be significantly shorter. If your group is an all adults group, you can go after lunch and get to ride those for adults the whole afternoon then watch the fireworks weekend nights. There are lots of rides for kids plus animal and clown shows, too. Restrooms, Lockers and Food stalls are abundant and the whole park is wheelchair accessible. Tickets may be bought at the gates. Oh and depending on the season, if it rains hard on the day you visit, the park administration sometimes give extra tickets so you can go back and enjoy another day with them for free. You can visit their website for more details.
