As we always hear, “Only a carabao gets old!” and this cliché is somewhat true because you can always be a kid at heart. So, we went to the Sky Fun Amusement Park at Sky Ranch in Tagaytay City.
The Sky Fun Amusement Park is located in Aguinaldo Highway, Tagaytay City beside Taal Vista Hotel. It is open daily from 3 PM to 12 Midnight from Monday to Thursday and 12 PM to 12 Midnight from Friday to Sunday.
How to get there: On a weekend, we arrived around 1 PM. Via car, we took the Aguinaldo Highway and passed the Cavite Expressway since we were from Makati. However, you can also take a commute via bus. If you’re from Manila, you can head to Buendia corner Taft Avenue in Pasay and you can see few bus stations with signs of “Mendez- Tagaytay/Nasugbu”. Those buses will pass to Tagaytay.
Entrance Fee: The entrance fee is P 100 per head, but they have seasonal promos of 50% discounts from time to time. However, in order to take the rides, we have to buy tickets per ride that we want.
Price per ride/ Rules to follow: Before taking the ride, parents and guardians must first read the Fun and Safety Rules displayed in every ticketing booth and beside the ride entrance. The price of each ride per person varies. Take note that children below 3 ft are free of charge on the Carousel, but must be accompanied by an adult with a ride ticket as what is stated in their Fun and Safety Rules. All kiddie rides cost P 50.
Attractions: My boys really loved the Nessi Coaster, it is a version of the roller coaster meant for kids. It is very safe and was fun to ride on. Please be advised that food and drinks are not allowed in every ride. Their second favorite is their Horse Back Riding experience for 30 minutes per person. My eldest son tried this and it was a bit expensive at a cost of P 250.
As for us adults, we also tried some of the rides. We rode on the Super Vikings which is only meant for adults. This ride costs P 100 per head and was worth the money and wait.
And lastly, for our last ride, we all tried their main attraction which is none other than the Sky Eye. This is one of the highest Ferris Wheel in the Philippines at 207 ft with 32 gondolas. The rate is P150 per head. All five of us, my husband and I including the two boys and their Yaya had a great time up above! We’ve seen the whole view of the ridge and also see the very beautiful Taal Lake.
All in all, we can truly say that this out of town experience was amazing! With all the big smiles on our kids’ faces and their laughs, this place was one of a kind!
