Happiness—the ever wondrous feeling we are constantly in pursuit of. What else would be an easier way to find it other than going to amusement parks, doing recreational activities, or even diving in to the extreme rides just to get your adrenaline kicking? I know, I know, these experiences might be fleeting. But these experiences are what make our lives a notch better. We forget all the bad things—whether it be an excruciating breakup with our special someone or a heartfelt word from our bosses saying we got fired. And so instead of drowning in your own tears, even just for a little bit, enjoy nothing but pure happiness in these 5 tremendously fun places in Laguna. Go on and check it out. Hakuna Matata!
WHAT: ENCHANTED KINGDOM (click to see location, admission, and other info)
WHERE: Sta. Rosa City Laguna
WHY: The answer is simple. The magic is here! The park is complete with rides suited for the whole family…and maybe for barkadas with different tastes in terms of the level of extremeness (let us all admit that some of us are scared of their extreme rides, thus end up riding the kiddie ones). You can forget all other things and enjoy the whole day as you will never run out of options. The park has kiddie rides, water rides, extreme rides, and even shows, fireworks and mini game booths all over to keep your fun meter on its peak.
WHAT: SPLASH ISLAND (click to see location, admission, and other info)
WHERE: Biñan City Laguna
WHY: This is a must-visit place for those who want some extra splash of fun in their lives. It’s almost like a recreational park, but the main theme is about getting wet. The resort is perfect for families and barkadas who want a whole day of pure fun. You can drown in happiness with their cool water rides, and giant slides but if you want something different, other options such as paintball, ziplines, bungee jumping, wall climbing, and many more are also available.

WHERE: Calauan Laguna
WHY: For those who want not only their hearts filled with tremendous fun, but also their stomach! Indulge in good food while pleasing your eyes with life size replicas of famous personalites and animated characters in this themed restaurant. Be in awe walking down the pathways while large statues of mermaids, apes, elephants, and buddhas surround you. And also, you can enjoy a boat ride and tacsiyapo*, too, while you’re at it.
*Tacsiyapo is a mini game where you throw plates, mugs, and even a TV set on the wall as a way of releasing anger.
