Enchanted Kingdom: First-Timer’s Guide
The first of its kind, the magical land of Enchanted Kingdom became the first playground and theme park for the Philippines. It contains a story for kids and adults who want to take a break from reality and feel how it’s like to be a child again. Only an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila, Enchanted Kingdom serves as a home for rides and different attractions.
The Enchanted Kingdom is located in San Lorenzo South, City of Santa Rosa, Laguna. It takes about an hour drive from Metro Manila to get there. By car, you need to pass by Metro Manila Skyway and S Luzon Expy/Pan-Philippine Hwy/R-3. Take SLEX and exit at Sta. Rosa, from there turn left and head to Waltermart Sta. Rosa. Upon arriving, turn right at Waltermart Sta. Rosa and follow the signs to the Enchanted Kingdom. Just in case you forget the direction, open your smartphone and let waze lead you the way.
As for commuting, you have options when going there. Alternatively, you may take the public transportation going to Balibago/Santa Rosa. Vans and Buses going to Balibago/Santa Rosa are available in EDSA, Buendia Terminal (JAM, JAC, BBL). Ask the bus to drop you off at Walmart Mall and you can ride a tricycle directly to the Enchanted Kingdom. It won’t cost you much but you can also walk going to the theme park if preferred.
