(Admins, if you feel you need to move this to the "OTHER" theme parks area that's fine ... but there is a method to my madness)
Okay ... not really ... it's more like ghetto Disneyland with a whole bunch of plagerized stuff ... it's kind of cool actually.
But before we go there ... some background for those of you not following my Philippine adventure thread in the lounge (and why aren't you???). I'm in the Philippines on business and I had a day to go check out the city today.
My saturday started at work, came back to the hotel and the driver picked me up about 11pm.
First Stop was SM Megamall. And when they say MEGAmall they aren't kidding.
The mall is probably 1/2 mile long and 5 stories tall. I had heard the shopping here was decent but the main reason for coming here was that there was supposed to be a park inside the mall called Glicos.
So I get in the mall and instantly start looking for a map to find this place. My common sense told me that it would be on the 1st floor ... coaster ... first floor right ... WRONG!!! It was actually on the 5th floor.
We will get to Glicos in a second. First some pics of the actual Mall.
First thing I come across is Worlds of Fun. Who knew that Cedar Fair had a park here too ...
Worlds of Fun
They have a bowling alley
And a Ice Rink
KFC has their own Chicken Boo
MegaMall ... 5 stories of shopping goodness:
Glicos (were not at Ghetto Disneyland yet)
Quantum Leap ... now RCDB has this listed as a Tire Propelled Lift coaster ... that's not actually accurate. It's actually a powered coaster.
Pictures of Quantum Leap
So then I ride the coaster and see this ...
The other thing, RCDB states there are 2 coasters here. If there are I never saw the 2nd one ... and the place isn't very big.
Back out into the mall ... apparently Erik Estrada is HUGE here.
Let's take a look at Erik Estrada's career path:
70's/80's ... hearthrob US actor, hit TV show
90's ... Novellas on Mexican TV
2000's ... Asian Pacific Superstar
That concludes the Megamall portion of the update ... Next post will be Star City. (aka ghetto Disneyland)
