Ekstreme Tower Ride will be launched in the Philippines’ first and only world class theme park Enchanted Kingdom come October, when the park celebrates its 15th year anniversary. This should be something to look forward to, as the ride reaches up to 150 feet and then plunges from the top. Whew! I can just imagine how high 150 feet is, and how spine-tingling this must be. The brave souls out there must be excited 😀 Enchanted Kingdom executives led by Chairman Cesar Mario O. Mamon are quick to add that EK’s newest ride adheres to the highest safety standards in the United States and is the first thrilling ride of its kind in the Philippines.
Meanwhile, here’s a list of Enchanted Kingdom’s schedule of activities for October 2010:
