Star City covers an area of approximately 35,000 square meters and offers a diverse range of attractions, catering to visitors of all ages.  From adrenaline-pumping rides, family-friendly attractions, to delightful kiddie rides, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The park boasts an array of exciting roller coasters, heart-pounding drop towers, spinning rides, and more, ensuring an exhilarating adventure for thrill-seekers.

One of the highlights of Star City is the Snow World, the largest permanent ice entertainment area in the Philippines.  Visitors can experience snowfall, enjoy sub-zero temperatures, and experience the country’s longest ice slide – a unique experience in a tropical country like the Philippines.  Other highlights of the park are the double-deck carousel, a 360-degree-loop roller coaster, water log ride, and inverted roller coaster.

The park also hosts a variety of entertaining shows, including musical performances, magic shows, and dance numbers, adding to the overall experience of joy and entertainment.

During Christmas, Star City transforms into a magical wonderland, with dazzling lights, festive decorations, and themed attractions that capture the holiday spirit, making it a popular destination for families and friends to celebrate the festive season.

Star City was hit by a fire in October 2019 that caused its closure.  It was reopened in February 2022 after more than two years of closure due to rehabilitation and Covid-19 lockdown.

Star City holds a special place in the hearts of Filipinos, as it has provided countless cherished memories and joyous moments over the years. It continues to be a beloved amusement park, inviting visitors to embark on a thrilling journey of fun, laughter, and unforgettable experiences.
