Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, age won’t matter at Star City in Pasay City. Fun and adventure waits around every corner of this theme and amusement park in the heart of the Philippines.
With exciting rides, theatres, a large shopping centre and several restaurants, the entertainment is limitless and the memories created here will last a lifetime. Star City, the nearby Culture Centre of the Philippines (CCP) Complex and the surrounding area provide the perfect holiday escape for kids and adults.
Rides and Attractions
With a plethora of indoor and outdoor attractions, it’s nearly impossible to get through them all in one day. Popular rides include the teacups, bumper cars, a double-decker carousel, a Ferris wheel and river rafts. The park also boasts Star Flyer, the nation’s first imported 360-degree loop roller coaster.
What first began as a seasonal carnival during the Christmas season has now become one of the top year-round attractions of the capital city Metro Manila. The park has since grown significantly, adding several rides and activities that include laser tag, a haunted mansion and the Peter Pan and Neverland fantasy attraction.
Pirate Adventure, the newest addition, takes visitors on a thrilling boat ride into the mysterious world of pirates and forbidden treasures. Those who wish to beat the heat can do so in Snow World where temperatures are below freezing and ice and snow is plentiful.
Shopping, Dining and Nearby Diversions
For an escape from all the fun and excitement, guests can spend some time shopping. The baratillo shopping center inside Star City offers prizes and unique gifts native to the Philippines.
Or, head to the food court where several restaurants and vendors offer a variety of foods – a must-try is the bulalo, a native beef shank soup. For a more unique experience, go to the neighboring Seafoods Paluto Restaurants, guests pick out fresh fish in the market and then choose a restaurant to cook it.
Time permitting; visitors may also take a relaxing stroll through the nearby SM Mall of Asia. It’s the largest mall in the Philippines and the third largest in the world. Another popular site is Coconut Palace, the home and workplace of the Vice President.
Although the theme park usually closes around 11 p.m., the fun doesn’t have to stop. Young, energetic locals and travelers often crowd the Republiq club and Club Mwah on the weekends to catch spectacular shows. For a calmer evening, check out the CCP Complex, a performing arts center known for hosting ballet and theater shows as well as classical musical concerts.
