THE BIGGEST and tallest ferris wheel in the Philippines… A Flume Ride that mimics the experience of going down a raging river… a Super Viking gondola that swings up to 90 degrees… a nostalgic double- decker Carousel.
These are just some of the exciting attractions at the Sky Ranch, which opened at SM City Pampanga. Located on a 10,000 site beside the mall, it is the first amusement park in North Luzon and the newest destination for both local residents and tourists.
Developed by SM Prime Holdings, Inc. partnership with S&T Leisure Inc. and Westech Philippines, the Sky Ranch brings all the thrills, all the excitement, and all the fun to kids and kids at heart with its 24 rides and two attractions.
You’ll surely feel on top of the world as you witness Pampanga Eye, the tallest and biggest ferris wheel in the Philippines – at 65 meters in height and 50 meters in diameter – transforms into the Biggest Lantern of Hope on December 1. An impressive 10-minute grand pyro musical show dances along the nostalgic Christmas songs with spectacular on-ground and aerial fireworks display on the ferris wheel that will surely awe all guests of all ages. The Loop Roller Coaster, on the other hand, is great for thrill seekers as it completes a 360 circle at the top of the loop, completely inverting riders. Left to right swerving, sudden speed bursts, and camel backs make this a ride to remember. Another roller coaster, the Field Runner, will make your heart beat fast and bring on an adrenaline rush to your system.
Capture the excitement of a water ride down a raging river with the Flume Ride. Cruis- ing over 5 minutes of winding waters, it ends with passengers drop- ping from a height of 9.5 meters into a wet and wild water track.
More thrills? The Drop Tower slowly lifts passengers to forty feet high before releasing in a free fall . . . the Space Shuttle that swivels with three cycles going to the right, and three cycles going to the left . . . the Super Viking, an open seated gondola that swings up to 90 degrees back and forth.
There are also nostalgic rides like the Double Decker Carousel, the classic favorite ride of all time, where kids can ride on magical horses. Designed by Peter Petz Productions of Germany, it transports one back to 20th century world fairs.
Visitors of all ages can also have fun with games – booths for extreme basketball, hang man, can smash, ring toss, lift-a-bottle, rope- a-duck and lobster pot where park guests can bring home stuff ed toys and other prizes.
