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, and even the young at heart, will not enjoy Star City.

The smaller ones can take their pick from the double-decked Grand Carousel which accommodates up to 72 riders; the Telecombat composed of 16 units that turn, lift, and drop like mini space vehicles; the Red Baron – which allows the 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 people each; the perennially popular bump cars; or the immensely popular mini roller coaster called the Wacky Worm. All the kiddie rides are indoors, so children can continue to enjoy them even when it rains.

Adults, in turn, can scream their lungs out on board the Viking Ship and the Blizzard. Outdoors, other thrill rides like the Surf Dance, Star Flyer, Jungle Splash , and the Star Frisbee provide increasing levels of excitement and exhilaration with every loop and tumble.

Complimenting these are various attractions like Peter Pan, the Land of the Giants, and haunted houses the Dungeon, and Gabi ng Lagim- all designed to bring out the child in us all. A perennial crowd favorite with its 15-degrees-below-zero temperature is Snow World, which allow visitors to experience real snow and the thrills of a snow slide.

Visitors can also discover the heart pounding, adrenaline-pumping, non-stop action of laser tag at Lazer Blaster — a state-of-the-art arena right in the heart of the park. Star City is well known for its Ride-All-You Can package. School tours and party packages may also be arranged.
