Review: Enchanted Kingdom

Since Enchanted Kingdom opened in the Philippines, I have only been able to visit it three times. One as a college student, and two more in the past 4  years.

Throughout that time, I have not seen too many improvements to the rides but I know it continues to be a popular destination for Filipino families most especially for kids. It definitely has a long ways to go when compared to more popular theme parks like Universal Studios and Disneyland.

To learn more about Enchanged Kingdom, you can visit their site. For adults, the Weekend/Holiday Rate is at PHP600/person while their Weekday Rate is PHP500. They no longer offer simple entrance passes for those who do not plan to ride so please take that into consideration when you decide to go there.

They do however have junior day pass rates for children between 36” to 47” tall. PHP 320 for weekends/holidays and PHP 250 for weekdays. Children under this height limit are free of charge. The theme park staff do the measurements before families are allowed to enter so this actually takes some time to finish and also causes long lines.

Weekends are really bad, especially during the holiday season. I personally think it’s better to go there late afternoon to night so that it’s not too hot. You can also plan to see the fireworks which happens I think around 7PM if I remember correctly. Make sure you get a good vantage point which is not too near since it’s very loud and little children might find it too noisy and scary.

They now also have pretty ample parking space but you might have to walk a long way to get to and from the park entrance.

Overall, if I had to rate it vs. other theme parks I have visited, it would have to be a 3/5. It’s not too pricey vs. those abroad but the rides could do some more improvement. So does the food. However, compared to those I have been to in the Philippines, I still think it’s the best.
