When in Manila, and you want to experience the “magic”, Enchanted Kingdom is the place to be — the country’s world class theme park where kids and kids at heart have fun and excitement under one roofless location.
This September 2012, Enchanted Kingdom celebrated its 17th anniversary. How time really flies when you’re having fun. I still remember the first time me and my family went to this magical place. That’s probably over a decade ago now. Enchanted Kingdom made it possible to have a taste of premiere theme park experience without flying out of the country.
Looking back, some of the rides I used to love are still at the park. For one, the super thrilling Space Shuttle is still standing majestic in one corner of Enchanted Kingdom but it was renamed as “Space Shuttle Max” that sports new coach rides from Holland. If you have been in this theme park and have not taken a shot at the Space Shuttle Max then you’re missing out a lot. Space Shuttle Max is a triple loop roller coaster ride that is not for the faint of heart.

Another ride that gives me the chills but still enjoy taking is Anchors Away. This large anchor swings back and forth for a couple of minutes, making your stomach flip the same way.
A chill ride in Enchanted Kingdom that can be relaxing for most but scary for people with acrophobia is the Wheel of Fate. This Ferris wheel used to be the king in terms of size in the Philippines until the Mall of Asia Eye was opened. Still, the Wheel of Fate is an icon in this theme park. According to them, there have been several momentous “yes” answered back on this ride. The question is “Will you marry me?” and its variants. Sweet!
