MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
Earlier today, me and the team KTMNL (Kain Tayo MNL) had a great and mesmerizing experience at this newly opened attraction inside Ever Gotesco in Commonwealth.
We got to see different of lights and art installation inside the two cinemas-turned-into-a-theme-park.
Upon entrance we were greeted by the staff and confirmed our reservation for the media preview. Another staff assisted us until we got into the first part of the tour. We were briefed in a bit before they opened the doors... then, boom! A magical vibe welcomed us as we walked into the first installation.
It was dark yet you will be guided with the pathways they've made for spontaneous experience. First room was already IG-worthy and we still have 30 more others to discover on. Each room and attraction will also give you goosebumps with their surround sounds in the background.
The next space was like you were brought to fairy land. The following space awaits some of the known supernatural creatures in the Philippines, such as "Manananggal".
You'll even hear their voices and get to know more about them as they put a short information for each featured folklore.
Shortly, we reached one of my favorite rooms - witch craft! Plus, they serve free drinks here. Yup, you can even choose from 4 different flavors. We tried their recommended ones, peach mango and lemon.
There, we got to stay a little longer and took the free refreshments. The room is filled with witch craft materials that gives you a feel of Harry Potter.
Then we went up to the second level and found out that they also featured our childhood book, the "Ibong Adarna" written by José de la Cruz, one of the great Tagalog writers during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines.
After more than an hour of walking and taking photos we finally made it to the second part of the tour where we entered to the another cinema. Here you'll see their merch area on the lobby.
There are interconnected rooms where you can take photos of and a wide space where a big stage is awaiting for the free dance show.
To complete our experience today, we explored the rest of the area that showcases the story of "Florante and Laura" by the famous Tagalog poet Francisco Balagtas. He wrote the epic during his imprisonment.
Just like the first part, this tour includes more vibrant rooms and activities inside.
Overall, the tour was filled with eye-catching sites and instagrammble spots that are perfect for your next feed or profile photo. Kids will surely enjoy the activities inside as we also witnessed on some of the children we saw inside the tour.
If you are a family, a couple or a group looking for something new in Metro Manila, Tales of Illumina is one of the top choices to have fun at.
