    EKstreme Tower Ride

    Enchanted Kingdom officially opens their newest ride that will challenge all the thrill seekers and those people wanted to face their fear of heights - as the ride reaches over 150 feet it then rushes down recklessly. LOL.
    EK’s newest ride adheres to the highest safety standards and is the first thrilling ride of its kind in the Philippines.

    Enchanted Kingdom opens EKstreme, and it is located in front of the balloon ride.

    EKstreme Tower Ride cost 100 pesos at the moment, a separate payment aside from the Ride All You Can pop tag you purchased.

    Boulderville is a zone in Enchanted Kingdom that’ll be a sure treat for the kids. This zone has a prehistoric theme with dinosaurs as main characters. Children of any age will be delighted with Enchanted Kingdom’s play facilities like Petreefied House and Rock Quarry. Puppet shows and dinosaur mascots will entertain you in this zone.

    EK entrance

    Enchanted Kingdom is a theme park with seven themes/zones:

    1. Victoria Park. A charming place but with only one ride, the Grand Carousel. This zone is nearest the entrance gate.

    2. Midway Boardwalk. The zone with the most rides: Anchors Away, Dodgem, Roller Skater, Bump N' Splash and Wheel Of Fate. The Condor, claimed by many extreme 'riders' as the most exciting ride in the park, has been idle for years already! HELLO ENCHANTED KINGDOM!!!

    3. Portabello. This is where my favorite Rio Grande Rapids ride is located. A great chance to get wet so be sure to bring extra clothings (including undies!). Its other attactions are the Flying Fiesta, Extreme Paintball and the 4D Discovery Theater. The last two charge additional fees.

    4. Brooklyn Place. Site of the Rialto, a motion-simulator theater that will make you feel like you're in the movie you're watching. One negative point though: it's not something that will make you come back because they're playing the same thing - the Yogi Bear race movie. Argh!

    5. Jungle Outpost. This Amazon-inspired zone has the challenging Jungle Log Jam and the boring Swan Lake rides.

    6. Boulderville. Prehistoric-themed zone with kiddie rides: Dinosaurs, Stone Eggs and Bumbling Boulders.

    7. Spaceport. Without the Condor, the most mind-boggling, tummy-thumping and lung-pounding ride is the Space Shuttle located in this zone. I love this ride, the country's first and only triple-loop coaster.

    Enchanted Kingdom- theme park where one can experience the thrill and excitements

    Park is subdivided into 7 zones (Victoria Park, Portabello, Spaceport, Jungle Outpost, Brooklyn Place, Boulderville and Midway Boardwalk).

    Never miss the Rio Grande Rapids ride (at Portabello) where each one is thrilled and swayed down the bumps and wild curves of the rapids. However, be sure to have a towel and extra shirt for I am gonna be sure that you wont miss the water splashing you wet.

    Fireworks display are shown before the them park closes at night.

    Recommended for all ages.

    Enjoy Feeding The Koi

    Koi At Nuvali Lake
    4 more images

    Do you know that the koi helps keep the Nuvali lake water clean? Don't be surprised when you see hundreds of koi in the Nuvali lake. I have never seen so many koi in just one lake as in Nuvali.

    The koi is a beautiful fish called by some as Japanese carp. It is an intelligent omnivorous fish that recognizes the person(s) feeding it, and remembers the feeding time. Nuvali involves the community in the pleasurable experience of feeding the koi. For a very minimal amount, you get a small plastic pack of koi feeds, and at feeding time (8:30am & 4:30pm), you can throw the feeds on the lake. Before you even drop the feeds, you'll see the koi gathering near you. It is such a thrill hearing the splashes and the sound of their mouth sipping the feeds. Young and old alike enjoy participating in the koi feeding activity. Others simply have fun watching the fish as they scamper for feeds.
