Do you watch Goin Bulilit? Good! Because this post is for adults ALSO! Are you a kid at heart? Then this place might just be the best bet for you! This charming theme-park located in Dapitan City is not just your ordinary park. It's magical and epic! I feel so proud that there's actually a local destination like this - very accessible, affordable, and fun all at once. When I first heard about it, I felt so giddy and excited. It's part of our travel tour so we got a ticket for all rides! How amazing is that? A perfect treat after an afternoon at the beach! Now, let me bring you to the wonders of FANTASY LAND!
Look at that, even just the entrance is sooo magical!
FIRST STOP. The Horror House! I previously decided not to join this because I thought it's just gonna be that old and lame horror house kind-of-thing that I've tried before. But I was just sooooo wrong!!! This is a horror house like no other! Come, take a look.
There was a short briefing of what we're going to expect (at least some of it). We were not allowed to bring anything inside so definitely no photos with the "ghosts." We were informed that we're not allowed to touch their talents and they're also not allowed to touch us. Good thing! Only one group of 5-7 people is allowed at once plus we'll spend about 5-7 minutes inside. I was also glad that there was a tour guide. Whew.
When we entered, there was sort-of a narrator who also looked ghostly and she led us to the rooms where she lost her sister. And then the story began to unfold in front of our naked eyes. Haha. It was already nerve-wracking when we started so I thought "this is gonna be the longest 5 minutes of my life!" It didn't help that the tour guide kept on telling us to form one line and I was the last person on the line! What more could I ask for! It was sort-of a relief though that the tour guide was reminding us of the line from time to time. It made me think that even though it seemed so real, it's really not at all. Haha! He was a funny tour guide who thankfully was at my back most of the time. I have to say that the talents were well-trained and really did a great job of scaring us and making us shout our lungs out. I don't wanna be a spoiler so please don't miss this if you get to visit Fantasy Land. And oh, I have to tell you that there was a little surprise towards the end because the "ghosts" actually touched us! Haha slight!
Soooo after catching our breath from that one of a kind experience, we headed directly to this ride. I forgot what the name is but the operator said that it was a warm-up ride. Ohhh I see! No, not the ferris wheel. This was like a mini roller coaster. And there I still managed to take a photo! Teehee!
The ride was short and sweet and has an element of surprise. It was a little bit scary but still manageable. So we took the warm up seriously and went right ahead to THE ROLLERCOASTER. Certainly, it wasn't the type that you'll find in Star City or Disneyland. But-it-was-something! More elements of surprise, free fall, and adrenaline switch!
To help you picture out how it looks, here's a photo I got from their website. Certainly not for the faint-hearted.
Even though we had a ride-all-you-can ticket, we didn't try everything. Some were really just FOR KIDS not for the KIDS at heart. Hehe. Some were also not challenging enough for us. We tried the Midi Flume after and as opposed to the roller coaster, it was not scary at all. I got more scared with the dirty water and the small froggy that popped out of nowhere. It got me screaming! No significant photos of the ferris wheel, sorry! Lol.
These were some of the cool stuff I found while looking around. :)
This place is a must-try! Especially the horror house, hehe. Plus there are more rides to watch out for such as the upside down rollercoaster. Drop by here when you visit Dapitan, okeeyyy?? ♥
