2. Aqua Planet
Location: Bounded by J.P Rizal Ave., J.P. Laurel Ave. and, Prince Balagtas Ave, Clark Freeport 2023 Mabalacat, Philippines
Time for some splash of fun! Aqua Planet is probably one of the newer theme parks on this list, with its initial opening just in 2018, but that doesn’t mean it can’t compete with the other theme parks. On the contrary, Aqua Planet stands out because its entire theme heavily relies on water attractions like Tornado Slides, Wave Pools, Wave Rider, Octopus Racers, Kiddie Zones, and even a Water Slide Roller Coaster! Fair warning though, if you choose to go here, prepare some extra clothes and a swimsuit because you’ll most probably get wet, there is no other option.
