ALL SYSTEMS GO! Space Shuttle Max Guaranteed to Thrill Park Goers this Holiday Season!
Enchanted Kingdom (EK), the country’s first and only world-class theme park, continues to thrill Park goers this holiday season with the launch of its newest ride, the Space Shuttle Max.


Over the past 14 years, the Space Shuttle became an icon for Enchanted Kingdom. Countless guests have gone through its spine-tingling loops and jaw-dropping speed as it created unique and memorable experiences for the guests with every cycle. The number of years of operation, however, had taken its toll on the ride and by the end of last summer, the attraction necessitated a major upgrade so that it can be good as new and even better!

The whole train was replaced with the latest available model, the Vekoma Mark 1212 train and coaches from Holland. The new design will give riders a greater feeling of space, as the body is more open, affording a more exciting experience. It has a more comfortable ergonomic seating position and a state-of-the-art automated harness system.



The new system takes into consideration the size and body mass of the rider resulting in a more comfortable experience. Also, the hydraulically operated harness system is controlled by the ride operator and need not be lowered or lifted manually by the ride attendants. As a safety feature, the ride system will not function if any of the harnesses are not locked.


A smoother ride is expected of the Space Shuttle Max because of the way it is attached to the track with better-controlled movements. Vibration will be at a minimum, with the train and coaches having fewer welds and whose axles are milled from solid high-grade steel billets.

Adding to the smoother rides is an entirely new braking system that is an industry and world’s first. EK’s Space Shuttle Max is the first Boomerang-type roller coaster to be installed with a magnetic braking system, replacing the previous pneumatic one and should result in a more gentle experience of braking, reducing the sudden jerk passengers normally experience.

"We are proud to present the new Space Shuttle Max in time for the holidays. The
highly-awaited ride will be very much welcomed by the huge crowd we are
expecting this season. EK will be filled again with the sound of the ride and
the screams of delight from its riders,"
said Mario O. Mamon, EK’s President and Chairman.

ZORB WATER BALL MAKES A SPLASH AT ENCHANTED KINGDOM

Guests have another reason to visit Enchanted Kingdom as the country’s first and only world-class theme park opens its latest attraction, the Zorb Water Ball.

During the 1980’s, a sports club from Auckland, New Zealand was inspired by a hamster ball to construct a giant sphere with a gimbal arrangement supporting two deck chairs inside. Human spheres have been depicted in mass media since 1990 when a reality show first aired the idea in the form of steel balls.

In 1994, Dwane van der Sluis and Andrew Akers conceived the idea for a type of sphere in Auckland, New Zealand, calling their invention the "Zorb"

Also known as walk-on-water-ball or WOW ball, it is a double-sectioned plastic sphere about 2.5 meters in diameter that can carry a flat weight of 150 lbs. The said ball is made from super resilient material called thermoplastic polyurethane that allows a human occupant to travel on shallow water.

Most of the balls have straps to hold the rider in place, while Zorb balls leave its rider free to walk the sphere around or be tossed about freely at a secluded part of the Rio Grande Rapids near the Eldar’s tent at Spaceport Zone. For only P50, you can enjoy this unique experience for 5 minutes!
