Enchanted Kingdom, The Philippines' Premier Theme Park

Enchanted Kingdom, The Philippines' Premier Theme Park

Do you remember your first visit to a theme park? Often a waft of fresh buttered popcorn takes me back to my first visit to Disneyland as young girl. It’s amazing how some childhood experiences, such as theme parks, are universal for cultures across the world. The thrill of butterflies in your stomach as you drop down a roller coaster peak or the magic of the park at night are ones that stay with you forever. I recently got to share this same experience with my family on our very first visit to Enchanted Kingdom

Honestly, I had underestimated Enchanted Kingdom purely because I did not know all the park had to offer. I had envisioned Enchanted Kingdom to be more like a glorified carnival, boy was I wrong. The park is a full on legit theme park with all the bells and whistles. It was clean, we felt super safe, it wasn’t too crowded and we LOVED our experience. My kids rode their first roller coasters, we experienced the new Agila flying theater experience and got completely soaked our last ride of the day, Rio Grande Rapids.

Here are some of the highlights from our day!

Our families highlight of the day was for sure Agila The Experience. All of us could ride side by side and as we soared over the Philippines we shouted and pointed and bonded over the places we had visited in person. With each location we were reminded of our gift of living here. Every Filipino, foreigner, transplant or tourist should experience Agila. 


AGILA the EKsperience is the first and only flying theater in the Philippines! It is an exhilarating multi-sensory adventure that takes park entertainment to incredible heights. Discover the power of nature’s elements in the magically-themed, massively iconic structure that houses the soaring theater. Meet EK’s wise wizard ELDAR and take off with AGILA to virtually experience the archipelago’s most beautiful sights and sounds. AGILA is a truly a whole new way to discover and EKsplore the very best of the Philippines.

|Magic By Night

There is an entirely new magic and energy as the sky grows dark and the park lights grow bright. Nights at amusement parks are some of my favorite times. The ferris wheel had me swooning!

It's true, the magic really does stay with you. My heart feels happy and already nostalgic as I look at these photos from just a few weeks ago. We have had many experiences at the beach, mountains and now a family day at Enchanted Kingdom in the Philippines. Manila really does have it all. Thank you for the fun day EK!
