Dream Play Manila; City of Dreams Manila Series 4

Dream Play Manila 
City of Dreams Manila Series 4  

The kids wanted to visit Dream Play at the 
City of Dreams Manila and that was the main
reason we spent our holiday in Crown Towers. 

Dream Play in an indoor amusement park designed
for young children and apparently the first the only
theme park owned and operated  by Dreamworks. 

We visited on a peak season, a day after Christmas 2015,
and the queue to the ticket booth was long, as expected,

…but the waiting period was fast.

We bought 4 VIP tickets where we do not
have to fall in line to the main attractions,


…similar to Front on Line badge
in Universal Studios in the US.

Dream Play is divided into several zones,

…and we directly went to Dream Tales 
as there was a scheduled puppet show.


Our tickets entitled us a front line pass and
 a personal photo- op with Shrek and Fiona,

…and this is one advantage of an upgraded
ticket as you do not have to catch them around
the park and have the photos taken by chance.

Another worthwhile thing to do here is attending a 
Cooking Class with Gingy, the gingerbread man.

The upgraded tickets also entitle the kids
for a front line pass in the cooking class,

…they were also given more festive special chef uniforms,

…and a bigger dough, enough to bake 
a bigger angel shaped cookie.

Just beside it was the Afro Circus and
massive padded playground for young kids.

We also enjoyed the Dream Theater that
shows popular  Dreamworks movies in 4D.

My young son also had fun manipulating the movements of
 the awesome, gigantic robotic dinosaurs at the Dinotrux,

…and pilot a robotic ball on a simulated highway maze.

My son also had a good time getting martial arts lesson
from Po at the Fast as Lightning Kung Fu Fighting zone,

…and later released all his hyperactive energy
at Shrek’s Swamp Stamp playground.


It was already past 2 PM when we decided to have
a lunch at Chez Gingy foodcourt but to our horror,
they ran out of food as they weren’t expecting the
deluge of people visiting the theme park that day.

We were very hungry since it was already late in the
afternoon, the park was becoming too crowded, too
noisy and uncomfortable as crowd continues to swell,

We decided to leave to look for a place to eat
even without trying the other attractions yet,

…and that was okay as it gives us a reason to
return to Dream Play on a less crowded season.
