Enchanted Kingdom Escapade

Posted by Alei at 1/14/2009

I went to Enchanted Kingdom with Adrian and a gang of his friends. Finally, their long-planned-always-postponed getaway came to actuality hehe. There were 14 of us including a driver and two of Adrian’s friends’ girlfriends. Here are the rides I felt ecstatic of:


Space Shuttle

Just a single look of it makes my stomach churn. Its is a triple loop coaster that turns riders upside down six times - 3 times forward and 3 times backwards. Absolutely, it’s a knee-shaker ride. And no, I did not ride that one hehe. I was coward! Imagine, only I, Adrian and our 7-year old companion were left to watch them ride.


Rio Grande

This wet-and-wild adventure was my favorite of all. We even ride it twice despite the very loooooooooooong line. It was worth the wait hehe. I never got the chance to take a shot I was afraid the cam might swim over the water haha. Our clothes were all dripping wet after the ride. Still, we wanted more! But, since it was Sunday, the line was twice longer than it was when we had our first ride.

Dodgem

Adrian and I are always bickering about driving. He was very short tempered every time he teaches me how to drive. I so love the bump cars in EK! I got to drive alone without Adrian pissing me off hehe. If driving is as easy as this, no gear, and all that stepping stuff, I would just drive everyday.

Anchors away

They say it is the nastiest and freakiest ride of them all but, I would better choose Anchor’s Away over Space Shuttle hehe. It is a ship that swings to and fro at ascending height. I felt like falling fall from a building as it falls down. I was really screaming my lungs out haha.

We rode at it twice. I was laughing at Adrian every time the ship goes down he kept looking above so as not to see how high we were from the ground haha.



I even dared to take a picture as the ship descends.

SRRX

Was that suppose to mean Shake Rattle and Roll? This was EK’s horror house. Though we bought the ride-all-you-can ticket, we still paid P50 for entrance. Groups entered the house at a time. There were hologram special effects inside. It was really scary! I even fell off the ground as I was running for Adrian since do not want to be at the end of our trail hehe. Unfortunately, I got a bruise on my knee. I also stepped on Adrian’s slippers leaving him a minute behind to repair his broken flip flops. All of us were afraid including the boys haha. There was a part inside which looks like an MRT station. We cannot enter the room. Sadako was near the door stomping her hand on the floor. It was really creepy! We were divided by two groups by then. It took us few moments before finally getting into the room. We were laughing and screaming until the very last room. I wonder why people like us would pay to scare ourselves like that haha.


Wheel of Fate

It took us exactly an hour waiting before we had a ride. If you want to see the view of the whole theme park, ride this biggie. It was so blowy at the top of the wheel. The park is beautiful at night seeing the lights from above. Here are the pictures I took.





We also had been to Flying Fiesta, Swan Lake and Rialto to name a few. Unluckily, Jungle Log Jam was under maintenance on the day we visited.

The best part of our evening was the snow! I felt like it was still Christmas. It wasn’t the real snow. It was artificial. No, it was not styrofoam. Small bubbles flew freely into the air from the top of the shops. It looks like snow, I was half convinced hehe.




We left the park exhausted. I had my knee aching. We also missed the fireworks display. But, above all these, we had so much fun, fun, fun! A day never ceases to be magical in Enchanted Kingdom. =)

I like amusement parks too. Looks like you had a great time! What a nice January activity . . . makes me wish I lived in a place that was warm year round.

My husband and I like the Dodgem too and that swinging ship was good too. My husband started feeling sick on it though and was glad when it stopped. I thought it was over too quick!

It was on January 11 that I went to Enchanted together with my girlfriend and her co-workers. The place is just amazing and considering that it was my first time to go there, I immediately tried the fun and scary rides (space shuttle, anchors away, rio grande).

I hope to go there again someday. :)
