Screw them then. :tongue:

That is common.  They don't allow you to bring food into amusement parks in the U.S. unless it is baby food or special needs food.  The problem at EK was that their food service is terrible.

Yes, I recall that from when I took my (then 11 year-old) half Filipino son to the Orlando theme parks.

Then again, I thought we got good value and good quality for our money, in a first world civilised country, not an overpopulated, polluted third world dump of a city like Manila (being honest).

I will cross Enchanted Kingdom off my list of things to do when we return to the Philippines.

Don, you might try PUGAD in La Union. It was very nice for a day trip back when I lived in Baguio. I even did their Superman zip line.

You couldn't pay me to get on a roller coaster in the Philippines, and I love roller coasters.

I sort of feel the same way about zip lines...

Just take a trip on one of their older buses. :mocking:

(And back in the early 90s, when I used to travel to Bicol from Manila....the train ! Standard gauge rolling stock on a narrow gauge line, with rotted out sleepers and hardly any ballast under warped lines.  You got seasick ! :laugh: )

I feel the same way about almost ANYTHING involving H & S standards, in the Phils. :unsure:

Part of the thrill is knowing that it could fly off the track at any moment!  So the Philippines coasters should be more thrilling!

When I lived in the Cincinnati area just before moving to PH, my friend lived next to King's Island, so I went several times.  When we were waiting in line for a coaster, I would remind his wife (who is in marketing) that amusement park marketing departments arranged for periodic equipment failures.  The failures make headlines and ridership goes way up!  :shock_40_anim_gif:

Well I did bungee jump and zipline in Thailand but I was much younger and invincible of course. The bungee jump was from a very high crane into a concrete swimming pool with no water. They weigh you with an old rusty bathroom scale and hand you a membership card with your weight printed on it, so you can skip that step next time I was told . I remember on the way up in the elevator the operator says to me "nobody die here Pattaya bungee jump" I says "that's good to hear" then he says "two people die Phuket bungee jump" ...yikes. Anyway it was a thrill so I did it twice, I was not sober.
