This Enchanted Kingdom Bloggers Event happened last May 10, 2009 (Sundayday). Yours truly got invited to the list of bloggers who will try Enchanted Kingdom's latest features like the 4D Discovery Theater and the Magicalympics.
The day started out with me living early from Cavite to go to the rendezvous point for the bloggers at SM Makati at the Parking Area 4 in front of Intercontinental Hotel. After some waiting I think I'm one of the first to arrive because by 8:00 I was already there versus the 10:00 am call time (It's better early than never, so to speak). Most bloggers were still recuperating from the blast they had the day before that from the iBLOG 5 Summit at UP Diliman which I failed to attend to. After ensuring that almost all the bloggers were already there the EK (Enchanted Kingdom) people gave us a go sign to board the van heading back to Region IV Laguna.
At around 12:15 pm the van arrived at Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa Laguna. After some picture taking at the front entrance of the popular amusement park in Laguna the bloggers then entered the registration areas where the "tools" needed for the days event where handed out...
Yes, yours truly already wored and was all geared up for Enchanted Kingdom Magicalympics. This is me singing "I'll never gonna dance again..." some twisted inside joke from the Controversial Hayden Kho and Katrina Video Scandal Hehehehe
Our first stop was the newest Enchanted Kingdom attraction, the 4D Discovery Theater which feature Journey To The Center of The Earth in 4D and when they refer to it as 4D we never knew that the experience will be "that" realistic. Realistic in the sense that we could actually feel the water or air that is being shown in the 3d movie screen (everything is perfectly synchronized which makes it four-dimensional). A promising new attraction in enchanted Kingdom that is worth trying.

After that we were directed to a restaurant inside Enchanted Kingdom to have our lunch. We passed by some nostalgic rides along the way and could not help but to take pictures of them...
Enchanted Kingdom's Space Shuttle too bad it was closed for the day but maybe we were lucky it was.

Finally we ate lunch and presented with the days agenda and an activity for the bloggers. Enchanted Kingdom now offers team building activities like the Magicalympics which is a series of activities ala Amazing Race using the park's local rides. Each teams were given individual colors, and ours was orange. A short game to set the mood of the game was played where each team should pick an animal to represent their teams. After choosing what animal, they must use a sound their team's animal to call other teams. The team must call the other team's animal sound twice which in return the receiving team will shout their team animal sound thrice and later calling twice the animal sound until the next team. Our teams animal sound was "WAAAH!!!" (Feel the Thunder!) from Po of Kung Fu Panda. Well after that energizing game we headed outside and the firs tasks were given.

I focused more on the game so I left the picture taking to the rest of the orange team. so there are no pictures of the actual Magicalympics but will make a separate entry on how did the event went.So let me hit the fast forward button to proceed to the last part which is the awarding of the winners.
Team Blue won the Enchanted Kingdom's Blogger Magicalympics
After that final event we were given a free time to try out more rides until the last event which is the fireworks to mark the end the event. Me, Jori and Azrael decided to try out the very relaxing and majestic Wheel of Fate.

We rejoined some bloggers at the roller blades mini roller coaster ride of Enchanted Kingdom. We repeat the rid two more times before going to Eldar's Tent for the Theater Play there.
We passed some couple more attractions and took some photos and snacks before going to Eldar's Tent for the play...
We arrived at Eldar's Tent with the play almost half way finish. The play for the day was entitled Journey to Another World Enchante' Under the Sea.
