Dapitan City | Gloria's Fantasy Land
Gloria's Fantasyland is an amusement park located inside Gloria de Dapitan in Dapitan City Zamboanga del Norte. It's a 5-6 hour travel from Iligan City via Mukas if traffic permits. However, if it is peak season it may take longer because of the queue at Mukas port to cross Ozamis City.
Even if I'm from Mindanao, it is my first time to experience Gloria's Fantasyland. The last time I was in Dapitan was a side trip from Hudyaka Zanorte Festival in Dipolog City, which is just 15 minutes away from Dapitan.
The birth of Gloria de Dapitan and Gloria's Fantasyland helped the tourism industry of Dapitan City a lot. Professional Travel Agencies has been including Gloria's Fantasyland in their tour packages with side trips to the historical destinations of Dapitan and an accommodation at the Dakak Beach Resort.
We arrived Gloria's Fantasyland around 4 PM and the promo rate for all-rides-pass is only until 7 PM. We tried to ride all rides we can. Zimerman (roller coaster) is something that is a must try for the adventurous. I am not adventurous enough though to try it, but my sister Nique rode it 8 times for that day. During our visit (November 2016), there were few rides under maintenance and it was raining hard (because of a typhoon) that they were not able to have a show in the evening and fireworks. Another thing to look forward to on our next visit.
Fees: During our visit, they have an on-going Halloween Promo. All rides rate was 1,000 and for those who are not riding can go in for only 100 pesos entrance fee. Normally, their rates range from 700 to 1000 pesos per person. You will be given tag bracelets, each color correspond to different type of packages.
Tip: Watch out for promo rates that you can take advantage. You can also get a tour package that includes all ride package for Fantasyland.
