BATANGAS: Fantasy World - A Twist Of Magical And Creepy Feeling

Image may contain: sky, cloud and outdoor

Magical yet creepy? Yes!

Fantasy World used to be the main set location for the local fantasy-themed television series by GMA Network entitled Majika.

Top billed by Angel Locsin and Dennis Trillo. That was back in 2006 when the theme park was still quite new and well maintained, a far cry from its current state today with its rapidly dilapidating walls, which can be seen even from the highway.

Fantasy World Philippines is a family entertainment facility, theme amusement and recreation club park. It is located on top of the soft rolling mountain ridge overlooking the clear panoramic views of Taal Lake and Volcano. After its completion, facilities will consist of golf & country club, hotel, condotels and residential houses. The site was chosen for Fantasy World by the proponents for its mild climate, purity of air, and closeness to Metro Manila and the Southern Provinces. Entrance to Fantasy World will be through the main gateway along Diokno Highway. Entry to the site can be from any of the six (6) major road networks.



Fantasy World Theme Parks, Amusement and Recreation Club, Inc. is a non-stock, non-profit corporation established primarily as a membership club which will operate and maintain a country club, amusement theme park and water park for the exclusive use and benefit of its members, their families and guests. Fantasy World offers a complete family entertainment facility similar to those found in Disneyland, Disneyworld, Universal Studios, and other amusement and theme parks found throughout the world.

Located along Diokno Highway, this seemingly straight-from-a-storybook structure was initially designed to be a resort, country club, amusement theme park and water park exclusive to members, their families and their guest, much like the Tagaytay Highlands. There are also residential buildings inside the complex offering a magnificent view of Taal. However, the planned rides and other establishments of the amusement park never materialized since construction was halted due to financial problems.
Nowadays, Fantasy World is quite famous for soon-to-wed couples as a prenup photo shoot site. Non-members and tourists can get in and tour this medieval castle for a fee of Php1,000, regardless of whether they're going in alone or with a group of up to 10 people. Or better yet, ask a member to accompany you so can get in for free. It is currently being managed by the homeowners association inside the complex. According to a member, you can reach their Manila office through the following numbers: 833-6566, 834-2673, 831-0813, 831-0782.
It's not really a main attraction since it's totally abandoned (although it's being maintained).
WHAT TO BRING
  • Water... more of it. It would be hot and thirsty.
  • Food. Snacks are allowed.
  • Camera for selfies. LOL
