Seriland, The Land of Happy Thoughts

There's something new at the second level of the Manila Ocean Park. Seriland, an "edutainment" park for kids and adult alike, just opened its doors to the public last November. My family and I were able to visit the place a week before its opening and got to enjoy 50% off on entrance fees. We took the package (Mirror Maze + Trick Art + 3D Cinema plus) which was supposed to be Php 450 for adults and Php 300 for kids. There's also the Kids Play Paradise for kids at Php 200 but my boy didn't want to play there because he felt he's "binata" already. ;p

First stop was the Mirror Maze. Upon entering, we were given white gloves to prevent us from leaving hand prints on the mirrors. It was all fun and amazement after. The illusion created by the mirrors created the maze. We did not only have fun finding our way out but we also enjoyed taking photos with our "extra" selves!
