One of the highlights of Fantasyland is the 5D cinema which is one of a kind in the Philippines and the full sized Haunted House which was designed by top production designers. Gloria’s Fantasyland is transforming Dapitan city into a top tourist destination in Mindanao and in the whole Philippines!

Watch this video below and look how I enjoyed their Roller Coaster. Also, I was not able to take a video in Zimmerman ride which is the highlights of my Fantasyland adventure. Because they don’t allow people for safety purposes.

I felt like an 8-year-old again the moment I saw the castle structure that served as the entrance of Gloria’s Fantasyland. It reminded me so much of my first visit to Tokyo Disneyland many years ago. Although Gloria’s Fantasyland is smaller compared to Disney, it is magical in its own right. Aptly named, it is probably every little child’s dream playground. It has exciting kiddie rides, exhilarating 3D and 5D rides, a horror house, and a fabulous musical show!

The entire park is well-maintained, beautiful, clean. And no, it is nothing like a perya. This one, although located in the quiet town of Dapitan is, by all means, a theme park.

  1. During my visit, I as well enjoyed their Zimmerman. I still ride around 4x cause I really wanted to shout and release all my burdens that time. The horror house is truly one of a kind, one of the best horror houses I had tried. They also sustain a good show and fireworks which is the highlights of Fantasy land. Good thing you have enjoyed!
