Good news for Negros-based residents – they no longer need to go to Laguna to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Enchanted Kingdom theme park.

That’s because a P600-million theme park is now under construction and is to open in Silay City in Negros Occidental by December 2017.

Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez said the ground-breaking of the park to be built by Aton Land will be in the first week of December, Visayan Daily Star reported.

It will have themed rides, a carnival and an amusement park with numerous rides, Benitez said.

He added the theme park will initially cover a four-hectare area and will be managed by Enchanted Kingdom, which runs a similar park in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

Benitez said the park may boost tourism in Negros Occidental’s third district.
