1. Magaul Bird Park
Magaul Bird Park is the first bird park in the Philippines with a world class bird show!
This place will surely take up your whole day so be sure to go as soon as the park opens to get the most of what you paid for. Trust me, its gonna be fun and worth your while.
Chick – Under 3ft – Free
Eagle – 3’1 and Above – PHP 350
Vulture* – 65yrs+ – PHP 300

There are a lot of fun-filled attractions in this park, but here are some of my favorites.
Wings of the World
This is not like any other bird show you’ve seen. Wings of the world is a live and interactive bird show featuring both small and big birds. You will see them flying all around you and you’ll never know where they’ll come from. You can even touch and feed the birds after the end of the show.
Tip: Go out of your comfort zone and participate when the host asks for volunteers during the show. Its definitely an experience you wouldn’t want to miss.
Weekdays 11:00AM, 1:30PM and 4:00PM
Weekends and Public Holidays: 11:00AM & 1:30PM
Goliath Swing ride isn’t for the faint-hearted. For the thrill-seekers out there, you’ll surely enjoy this ride. This huge swing will send you flying 180 degrees into the air hanging over a cliff. If this doesn’t make you scream at the top of your lungs, especially right before that big drop, I don’t know what will. But don’t worry, you’ll feel lighter after you’ve realized that you’ve just conquered your greatest fear. You should definitely put this on your bucket list.
Aerial Adventure Walk
This course will definitely test your fitness level. From walking on a single rope to swinging from one tree to another, Aerial Adventure Walk will definitely leave you sweating after finishing the entire course. It may look easy, but as they say, looks can be deceiving.
Tip: Bring an extra shirt and water because this course will surely tire you out

3. Funtastic Park
Funtastic Park is the first indoor Educational Fun Park inside Subic Bay Freeport Zone. Here they offer fun and unique activities which can be enjoyed not only by the kids but the kids-at-heart as well.
This park has all sorts of indoor rooms and outdoor maze adventures; you definitely won’t run out of things to do. It’s a little dark in some rooms like the enchanted forest walk in 3D room and you won’t be able to take pictures in some of them, but at least you can enjoy the moment even more. Don’t worry rooms like the 3d wall art room will pretty much make up for it.
But the fun isn’t over yet. Did I mention that there’s a trampoline, a garden maze and a grass slide outside? Yes. You read that right. So what are you waiting for? Call up your friends, hop on that car and off to Subic to you go!
