CLARK FREEPORT -- Get set for the big splash as Aqua Planet, the most modern and biggest water park in Asia finally opens its doors to water adventurers on Saturday, February 24.

Aqua Planet, a 10-hectare “agua paradiso” located at Clark Freeport in Pampanga, houses 38 exhilarating water rides suited for all ages.

Valued guests may relax free of charge at the 900 tents with a total 3,000 sitting capacity pitched all over the water park. Large families and groups of 15 to 25 may also avail of the Cabanas priced from P3,000 to P5,000.

Swimming gears, souvenir items and snacks will also be available at Aqua Planet’s four local shops. Lockers are available at P200.

All transactions at Aqua Planet are automated. At the entrance, a wrist baller will be given and is reloadable through the RFID kiosks in the area.

"We only want the best for our guests. We came up with this idea to give them ease of access in buying food or anything they want.

Instead of bringing bills and coins while on the verge of enjoying the place, all they need to do is have the baller scanned," BBI President Irineo “Bong” Alvaro said.

Committed to providing safe and amusing experience for all, Aqua Planet recently passed the international standards of the third party inspection. All the 38 water rides are manned by well-trained life guards.

How to get there?

This water wonder spot is at most a two-hour drive from Metro Manila and is highly accessible via the North Luzon Expressway and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx).

Clark Freeport also hosts the Clark International Airport. Fifteen minutes from Aqua Planet is SM City Clark, 20 minutes to Angeles City’s Heritage Plaza, and about 45 minutes to Subic Bay via the SCTEX.

Ticket prices range from P700 to P900. For details and reservations, visit their official Facebook page at @aquaplanetph.
