    incidentally, where did you stay in dapitan? what was the rate?

    • Mark Maranga says:

      Kathy,

      We stayed at “Bed and Breakfast”, it looks like a home but there are rooms for rent inside. It is along Sunset Boulevard, has a outside sign/banner and about 5 minutes walk from Gloria Fantasyland. The room for 2 is P1000, with Cable TV, air-conditioned room. There are other hotels and inns along Sunset Boulevard so you have a lot of options.

  2. normie maglaque says:

    i would like to ask about the promo that’s been advertised on national tv? what was the promo cover? and what way of transportation we can use to go there.. please reply as soon as you receive it so we can decide.. God bless

    • Mark Maranga says:

      Normie,

      I don’t have any idea about the latest promo of Gloria’s Fantasyland. Kindly contact them directly. You can choose to go there by boat (to Dapitan) or by plane (to Dipolog) or if you’re in the island of Mindanao you can choose to ride a bus.

  3. jovz says:

  4. Alex says:

    i would like to inquire if Gloria’s fantasyland opens 7 days a week? including saturdays and sundays?

  5. peri says:

    i plan to go there during the holiday break. is it safe? can i have the contact number of the bed and breakfast inn so i can make the necessary arrangements. thanks!

    • Mark Maranga says:

      Peri,

      Yes, Gloria Fantasyland is doing everything to make its place and rides safe for everyone. Just be sure to follow all the rules.

      I’m sorry, I don’t have the contact number of Bed and Breakfast Inn. Anyway, once you’re there you can choose from the dozen inns & hotels near Gloria’s Fantasyland so there should be no worries for the accommodation unless for special cases.

  6. meah says:

    wow !!! fantasy land was great !!! my inner childhood came out again … and the best was the galeon and the horror house !!! sulit !!! wish we could go back there … :))
    by the way .. magkano ba yung ticket na ride all you can ??

  7. charles bryan serino says:

    magkano po ba yung ticket na ride all you can ngayon? may nag sabi kac nag increase nah

  8. Bonne Garcia says:

    Hi Mark,

    How is this different from Sta. Rosa’s Enchanted Kingdom and Manila’s Star City?

    • Mark Maranga says:

      Bonne,

      I think Gloria’s Fantasyland, Enchanted Kingdom and Star City are pretty much the same – as a theme park. Enchanted Kingdom is best known for it’s roller coaster (and the new “instant-drop” ride) which can drop 50-60 kilometers per hour. Star City is popular for their Snow World. Gloria Fantasyland has the best horror house but the one at Enchanted Kingdom is also good. More or less they are comparable with each other and they have a wide variety of rides for both thrill-seekers and the not; and for both children by age and by heart. The three theme parks have some unique features which are all worth the try. For me, Enchanted Kingdom is better than Star City and Gloria’s Fantasyland but the two are not that far behind.

  9. Sarah says:

    Hi Mark,

    We are planning to visit Dakak and Fantasyland next week. Is Horror House included in the rides for P699 package?

    • Mark Maranga says:

      Sarah,

      When we were in Gloria Fantasyland last May 2010, the prices are as follows:

      P400 – Ride all you can + Hunted House
      P300 – Ride all the rides once (excluding Go-Kart) + Hunted House
      P200 – Sight-seeing Only (sometimes a free Go-Kart ride or Hunted House is given as complimentary)

    • Najia,

      Gloria de Dapitan is the one that’s open in the morning. Gloria Fantasyland, which is located inside Gloria de Dapitan, opens in the afternoon. There are several hotels and pension houses located outside the theme park. These hotels cost about P600-P1000 (or more for higher-end) for double-sharing air-conditioned rooms.
