Star City is one of two dominant theme parks in Manila, the other being Lagunas Enchanted Kingdom. Having been to both theme parks, I have come to the conclusion that I prefer Star City over The Enchanted Kingdom.
Although Star City does not have the same attention detail as The Enchanted Kingdom; it has the advantage of being right in the heart of Metro Manila as well as still offering a wide variety of rides and attractions for its patrons.
With an extensive range of indoor and outdoor rides, Star City can accommodate guests in all weather conditions. Although a few of the rides did look dated due to the theme park opening in 1991; the park undergoing a lot of maintenance and construction work at the time, so it appears that the park’s management is actively updating its rides as well as expanding on what it has to offer.
One thing I noticed is how wide the variety of rides on offer is. It has all the traditional roller coaster, and ferris wheel style rides you would expect at a theme park. It then has offers other alternative attractions such as a haunted house exhibit and its snow world. There is also an entire section dedicated to smaller arcade games where patrons can relax after enjoying the more intense rides.
Star City schedule and directions

Star City is located within the Cultural Center of the Philippines complex in Pasay City; a short drive from SM Mall Of Asia. It is a 15 – 30 minute drive from Makati and Manilas international airport; although these times can be significantly longer due to frequent traffic in the area.
