Ride the AGILA and Change the Way You Look at the Philippines
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” -Wayne Dyer
Blessed with more than 7,000 islands, the Philippines is home to more than 2,000 species of fish, more than 600 species of resident and migratory birds, more than 200 species of mammals, more than 50 species of bats, and almost 100 culturally and linguistically distinct ethnic groups. That’s almost 10,000 reasons to love the country and be proud to be a Filipino. But not everyone knows these facts, and not everyone appreciates how beautiful our country is.
It may be hard for many to see the beauty in a country rife with negativity, but just because we don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Beauty is all around you. You just need to open your eyes wider, and let your heart soar. Enchanted Kingdom’s newest and grandest attraction yet, Agila The EKsperience, lets you do that, soar like an eagle and see the best of the Philippines.
True to its mission of providing magical experiences and happiness to all its park goers, EK outdoes itself this time by touring you to the best and most popular tourist spots in the Philippines through the magic of flying.
Agila The EKsperience takes you to greater heights and stimulates all your senses to help you change the way you look at the Philippines and once more make you realize that dreams do come true.
As children, we have studied and maybe even asked to memorize popular tourist spots in the Philippines. Our textbooks show pictures of the smallest volcano in Taal Lake, Chocolate Hills in Bohol that change colors during dry and wet season, the majestic Maria Cristina Falls in Mindanao which also provides electricity to its nearby areas, Hundred Islands in Pangasinan, and many other beautiful places. We may have dreamed of one day counting all of the one hundred islands in Pangasinan while riding a boat and looking out for dolphins that might join us in our travels. Perhaps once, we imagined riding an airplane and looking out the window to see the perfect conic shape of Mayon Volcano while its mouth continues to spit out smoke. Or maybe we secretly wished for the ability to fly even for a day.
Children would often dream of being able to fly, of soaring high like the birds and looking down at places and people that they see every day. Some children even go to great (and dangerous) lengths just to make this dream come true, inventing wings and jumping from trees and roofs. But growing up happened and we left our childhood dreams and wings behind, and most regrettably, we put our pride in our country in the back burner.
Agila The EKsperience helps you see the Philippines as you’ve never seen it before, rekindle that burning love for your country that got buried by everyday negativity, and give new meaning to the phrase Proud to be Filipino. But most importantly, Enchanted Kingdom gives all of us a chance to make a difference – to not only be proud to be a Filipino but to be a part of the pride of the Philippines.
