*For my latest update (as of Sept. 25, 2016), skip to the latter part of this post. There’s also a link to my article about party planning at Fun Ranch at the end of this post. 🙂
There’s this place in Ortigas that we always visit whenever we are at Tiendesitas or Ark Avilon Zoo. It is a small amusement park called Fun Ranch. We love going to Fun Ranch because we love kiddie rides! And the place requires no entrance fee! Rides cost PHP 50/head. Small kids ride for free.
Zuri’s staple ride at Fun Ranch is the carousel. We always ride the carousel whenever we are at Fun Ranch.
Battling with the carousel as Zuri’s most favorite attraction at Fun Ranch is their Fishing Station. Zuri never leaves Fun Ranch without first having her turn at this activity. I think what lures her to the Fishing Station is mostly the opportunity to make a wet mess.
Another ride that we like at Fun Ranch Ortigas is the Red Baron ride. We love that we can control how high and how low it goes as it “flies” around.
We also love the bumper boat ride. This is my personal favorite because this is something we do as a family. Daddy Rupert drives the bumper boat while Zuri and I feed the fish.
The Ferris wheel at Fun Ranch Ortigas is very kid-friendly. This kiddie wheel is not high or fast enough to be scary. Zuri is totally at ease with this ride.
Zuri also likes trying the token rides at Fun Ranch Ortigas. PHP 10/ride.
Other rides available at Fun Ranch Ortigas include the Pirate Ship and the Swing.
Aside from those that I have mentioned, Fun Ranch Ortigas also offers the following attractions to its guests (pictures taken from the official Fun Ranch website): Playdium, Tea Cup ride, Fun Ranch Express, Bumper Cars, Go! Speed Racing, Space Quest, mechanical horses, duckpin bowling and mini golf. Their latest attractions include the Dragon Roller Coaster (a small roller coaster ride) and the Balloon Flight (a small version of Up, Up and Away!).
Fun Ranch also offers party packages. For more information, visit their website at
