I am glad to hear that the Covid cases in the country is starting to trim down. From 20,000 plus cases in the last months, it went down little by little. Yesterday upon checking the Department of Health data, it recorded a 4,496 positive cases and 9,609 who recovered from the virus. It is a good news, but remember we should still follow the safe protocols and don’t be too complacent with the current situation. We should aim for a negative case, so that we can now back to our normal lives. Speaking of normal life, one of the things we missed a lot during pandemic was travelling. There were also so many requirements needed if you want to travel to different places that takes a lot of time and will cost you an additional money. How I wish I could pull off the time so that we can have year 2023. I guess by that time everything’s will be back to normal. Can we have a time machine now?
Anyway, since I miss travelling for a while why don’t we travel down the lane. This happened in 2018 when our family went to Enchanted Kingdom, a famous theme park in the country located in Laguna. This was actually our third time to visit the place, but this time the family (in laws) were complete. So even though today is not Thursday, let’s have some throwback.
In January 2018, the family decided to have fun and went to one of the happiest place in town. Enchanted Kingdom is located outside NCR, I think the travel time would be 2 to 3 hours from our place including all the traffic . Since this was our third time going to that place, we brought some foods and snacks because the food inside the park is a little expensive. First, Anthony drove to his brothers house in Quezon City. Both of them are living in the same village. Their oldest brother was living in Las Piñas, so we’ll just meet them at the entrance of EK. We should be there at lunchtime so we could eat first before we could have fun. The whole ride was smooth until we reached and passed the South Luzon Expressway. From there it only took few minutes more until we got to our final destination. We took our packed lunch at the parking area and prepared ourselves for a whole day fun.
The whole gang was all ready but for the meantime we took some family pictures. After we got our tickets, we entered the park already. I don’t remember the price anymore but if you want to know it you can check it at their website. Our first stop was Agila Eksperience. This was their newest attraction, because during our last two visit this isn’t available yet. You shouldn’t miss this ride if you happen to visit EK one day. They called it a flying theatre because the idea was that you were riding at the eagle’s wing while exploring the different attractions in the Philippines from North to South. It was so good with all the props and all, and we’ll definitely come back next time.
After we were done with our first ride, we explored the theme park. We separated our ways so that we can enjoy every ride. While my kids went with their cousins and uncle, I went to this particular ride which I haven’t tried last time. I haven’t tried them before because I was scaredy-cat and that day I have earned some courage to try them. It was a lot of fun and because my first ride was a blast, it triggered my adrenaline rush to try the super extreme rides.
I was always hesitant to try the Space Shuttle, but since I promised myself that I should try it next time I come, I didn’t failed myself that day. Anthony, my husband was a little afraid of heights but since I told him I’d like to give it a try, he wanted to try it too. I was a little afraid for him, because he just had a minor operation. Well, he insisted it was ok so we entered the entrance to Space Shuttle. After securing the lock and all, I just closed my eyes and scream as loud as I can until the whole ride was done.
There were so many more rides to enjoy while you were at the 25 hectares theme park. They have rides for little ones too. Of course I have to take the kids there. I can’t tell it one by one because they are so many to tell. And every little one would definitely love and enjoy it.
The food was extra expensive inside the park, so it is advisable to bring some snacks and food, only that you can only eat it in the parking area. It isn’t allowed inside the park, but you can always go out anytime, just don’t forget to get a stamp from the staff so you can still get inside. They will only allowed you to bring water inside. And also don’t ever forget to bring some extra clothes because some rides will get your clothes wet. Out of all the rides, Rio Grande is definitely the best of all the rest. Just get ready to get wet. Everyone will love this ride because this is one of the safest yet so enjoyable. I think we took this ride many times. After our turn is done, we go back to the entrance and have it all over again. This was always our last ride before we changed our wet clothes and came back for the last attraction in the park, the fireworks. After the fireworks is done it’s time to go home.
It was a tiring day but I know everyone had fun. Not only the kids but the adults as well. We’d definitely come back if the right time comes.
So there you go, my throwback travel on a Wednesday morning. We could only hope that by next year we could do the things we used to do. Little by little the restrictions were slowly lifting up. Just a little more patience and we are going back to normal. Aren’t you excited for that? So how about you guys? Have you been to any amusement park? What was your favourite ride?
