The map has changed when it comes to it’s design and there were new rides which all of us were so excited to try the moment we were able to locate them. Without further ado, let’s start our magical adventures.
Let the ride begin
The moment the wheel started to turn, we enjoyed the sight and this is why is it nice to ride the Ferris wheel first because you know what ride you will be trying next and you know how to get there even without the help of the map.

STALLS AND BOOTHS
On the other hand, since Jane and Ate Zah were not feeling well, they were the EK buddies. They get to experience some of the stalls and also got the chance to win awesome prizes. They took the ride on Wheel of Fate when the sun was already out and get the chance to witness EK at night. Talk about those beautiful lights.

RIO GRANDE RAPIDS
After the Ferris wheel, it started to pour again so we decided to look for raincoat inside the park. It was quite expensive but it was very handy and serves as a souvenir for our EK experience. Our second ride was the Rio Grande Rapids. This is one of the rides that you will definitely get wet. So if you have big bags or non-water resistant stuff this is not the ride for you. You will prepare yourself to really get wet at the end of the ride.
Since we were all wet, we decided to take the third ride on the Flying Fiesta. It will not totally dry you up, but it can lessen the wet feeling in a more fun way. They are are like swings that make you go round as if you are flying.
Our next stop was the mini village side of EK. There were mini stores and stands that makes you feel like you are in another dimension or another country.

One of my favorite part at EK is the streets where you can take your photos in front of an illusion stores. It makes you feel like you are in another country or even dimension. This part reminded me and gave the Harry Potter vibes.
The Baking Co.
The Grand Central Station
Is it just me or this shot makes you feel like a bit Harry Potter-ish?
Our fourth destination was Rialto. It was quite nice because the movie they featured this time was Green Lantern (one of my favorite Marvel Heroes and since this movie was our (Yobo) first movie date.
Imagine watching a movie that makes you feel that you are in it too. That will be totally be awesome and more expensive at the same time.
After Rialto, we had our fifth at Log Jam. But since we were all wet, I failed to take a picture of it because waters were just splashing once in a while. It just made my body in mini adrenaline rush state. I didn’t stop there. I was thinking twice and getting fickled if I should try Space Shuttle again, at the end. I did it and this time I enjoyed it more. Wohoo!
IT’S A SMALL WORLD
This was a new ride in EK, we were supposed to try it but Jheck and Jeon were having second thoughts on trying it since it was topsy-turvy-kind-of-ride. I forgot it’s name, and it has a cute song played.. “It’s A Small World.”
Then our seventh stop was the carousel. It was just so pretty with all those bedazzling lights.
There were still many rides and exciting stalls to visit but since there were only limited time we were not able to avail and visit them all. I bet nice time I pay a visit I might be able to try the ones I haven’t crossed yet.
We also tried the Swan. I tell you this ride will use all your hamstring strength. It was like a semi-work out. It was tiring but we enjoyed the ride despite the fact that we bumped on the walls and other riders a couple of times. Sorry about that.
Then after the ride, we immediately run to near the Space Shuttle to witness the Firework Display and listen to EK’s closing song. It was indeed another experience I will totally not forget. Here are some of my favorite firework shots for starters.
Starry starry fireworks
Twinkle twinkle fireworks
Firey red fireworks

For the record, it was eight (8) rides in total. 5 years ago, it was only three (3) for me. Always remember that you are never too old for amusement parks. Just enjoy every bits of it because sometimes being a child brings back a lot of good memories and casts away our worries once in a while. This will definitely not be my last visit to Echanted Kingdom.
