Skyranch Theme Park, Tagaytay Philippines

On my second day in Tagaytay, I met up with a good friend of mine, Bonny, for the first time 🙂 It was nice to finally see after years of talking online. I knew her from a great chat site called Stickam (which shut down more than two years ago). Unlike many other sites like Tinychat and Chat Roulette, the community in Stickam was awesome. I still keep in touch with many of them and in some, I’ve found friends for life. Ah, good times.



After a quick McDs lunch, we took a Jeepney to Skyranch.

This 5-hectare, family-friendly theme park is one of the must visit places while in Tagaytay. Entry is 80PHP on a weekday, and 100PHP for weekends. Rides have to be purchased separately.


There was a paddock where visitors can ride on ponies. LOL at the fart part of the sign.


The park is fairly new and well maintained. Rides are more family-friendly than adrenaline pumping; nothing too crazy but fun. There were also many carnival-style stalls where you can win gigantic stuffed teddies. Perfect place to take your significant other on a date.


Since we had a limited budget, we only went on a few rides. One of them was the Sky Eye, a gigantic Ferris Wheel with 32 air-conditioned gondolas. Each ticket costs PHP150 per ticket, but the views were worth it as you can see the whole of Taal Lake/Volcano. Getting to the top was scary because the wind was so strong that our gondola kept swaying. D:

We also went on the Super Viking (PHP100), a pirate-ship ride that can swing up to 90 degrees. This got the blood pumping but not in an ‘omg I’m dying of a heart attack’ way. Despite this, E almost broke my arm with his grip (lol are you getting too old for this? :P)

Beautiful view of Taal Lake/Volcano. I think the views are even better here than at Picnic Grove!

It was a fun-filled day hanging out with B, but as all good things come to an end, it was time to say goodbye. I hope that she’ll be able to visit me in KL sometime soon 🙂

And then it was time for the dreaded three hour ride back to Manila..

Our short escape to Tagaytay was a great one, and I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful scenery/nature and the clean, fresh air. Definitely a place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
