Thinking of a weekend get-away that is affordable, close enough to home, and with something for everyone? You don’t have to look far because there’s a theme park right at the heart of the metropolis where a world of excitement, entertainment, and education awaits.
Star City, housed within the CCP Complex in Pasay, is truly big on family fun. The acknowledged pioneer in mixing amusement with retail, Star City focuses on providing families with maximum enjoyment through a stimulating array of indoor and outdoor attractions to captivate both the young and the young at heart. Rides that spin, twirl, and zoom. . .live shows that provide the thrills and spills. . .a collection of haunts and destinations to fulfill your greatest fantasies. . .and a scoop of fun foods and goodies all blend together to give you a fantastic day out – without spending a fortune.
Indeed there is simply no way that kids or the young at heart will not enjoy. The smaller ones can take their pick from the double-decked Grand Carousel which accommodates up to 72 riders; Telecombat – composed of 16 independently controlled units that turn, lift, and drop like mini space vehicles; the Red Baron – allowing your child to imagine himself as an ace flyer during World War I; Quack-Quack, a seven-meter revolving ride with six duck-shaped tubs that can seat four small kids each; and the perennially popular bump cars. All the kiddie rides are indoors, so children can continue to enjoy them even when it rains.
Complimenting these are various attractions designed to bring out the child in us all. There is the adventure water ride inside the Pirate’s lair. A perennial crowd favorite especially during the summer months with its 15-degrees-below-zero temperature is Snow World, which allows visitors to experience real snow and counter the tropical weather.
Outdoors are the thrill rides where adults and teens savor increasing levels of excitement and exhilaration with each loop and tumble. Many are their only kind in the Philippines, like the Surf Dance, Star Flyer, Star Frisbee, and the nearly 200-foot high ferries wheel, the Giant Star Wheel, which is the tallest in the country.
