It's that time of the year again where students and workers alike plan their leisure trips to places outside Manila. It should be, because summer break is coming!
One of the places that vacationers frequent is of course Enchanted Kingdom. It's the Philippine version of Disneyland sans Mickey Mouse and all those floats and stuff (I've been to both but I'd rather not compare). Enchanted Kingdom is a wonderful place that forms lots of great memories, but it's not without its downsides. So without further ado let's take on Enchanted Kingdom's entrance fee, ticket price, and sales in the Philippines.
Enchanted Kingdom Entrance Fee, Ticket Price and Sales Philippines
How much is Enchanted Kingdom's Entrance Fee and Ticket Price?
Entrance plus Unlimited Access to the Grand Carousel, Bumbling Boulders, and Boulderville Express
This option is great for adults who will not ride any of the attractions in the park and for seniors too. Imagine if you'll pay for a full-priced ticket without using it. This is what my parents bought for themselves. Hey, at least they'll be able to ride the carousel!
Entrance plus Unlimited Access to all of Enchanted Kingdom's Rides
Never mind if it's a weekday or a weekend, the park is always full of people (especially in summer). Buy this ticket if you're young, energetic and willing to wait a lot, since a queue for a ride—especially at peak months—would ordinarily last 2 hours. Imagine standing in line for 2 hours for a 5 minute ride. New attractions are of course excluded in this ticket. Seniors BTW are entitled to a 20% discount.
Entrance plus Unlimited Access to all of Enchanted Kingdom's Rides for Kids
The same as above but only applicable to children 36" to 47" tall. If your kid is 35" below, he or she will enter the park and will have unlimited access to all of the park's rides for free.
After you pay up for the entrance and rides though, you still won't be able to access the park's newest and more exciting rides such as the EKstreme tower drop, which will cost you another P100.00 per person in charges.

How to go to Enchanted Kingdom
A K3R shuttle service to Enchanted Kingdom is available at the Intercontinental Hotel, open parking, Ayala Center (beside SM Makati, across Ayala MRT Station and Edsa Car Park)
Public Vans going to Enchanted Kingdom are available at Starmall EDSA. It costs P60.00 per person and will take you about 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the traffic. These public vans will drop you off at Waltermart Sta. Rosa. Look for tricycles and ask them to bring you to Enchanted Kingdom.
What more can we expect from Enchanted Kingdom?
Aside from the rides, Enchanted Kingdom is also littered with fair games, such as "break two plates in a row and win a prize" (P50.00 for two balls), "shoot two hoops and win a prize" (P50.00 for two basketballs), "fish for a bottle and win a huge tiger doll" (P50.00 per try), and a lot more. I have to warn you though, all the games there are difficult at best and if you're not careful you'll be burning through your budget. I spent around a grand and a half just from playing these games. Imagine all those fifties.
There's also the food. You can opt to bring your own food and eat at inside your car, or buy from stores inside the park. The open food court is always full, so it's hard to take seats, but the covered food court has less people and is air-conditioned, albeit more expensive.
So that's it for this post. If you enjoyed the Enchanted Kingdom guide, share it on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
