‘Big Boom sa Sugbo’ opens at SRP

CEBU City’s ultimate fantasy land "Big Boom sa Sugbo" officially opened around 6 p.m. on Friday, December 8, at the South Road Properties.

Emmanuel "Manny" L. Ongkiko, managing partner of Professional Advertising and Production Specialist (Paps), said during the launching last Wednesday that the ultimate fantasy land will be the biggest year-end event in Cebu.

He said that Cebuanos will expect a bigger, better, and different carnival experience, adding that people can expect reasonable prices and safe carnival rides.

“We hope nga ang Paps maka-hatag gyud og real kasadya. Naka bisita ko, gwapo kaayong mga rides. It’s different from last year. We tried to ask 'Manny' for rides and sports nga i-combine ngara para naay real Kasadya gyud (We hope that Paps will provide a real cheer. I visited the area, there were amazing rides. It’s different from last year. We tried to ask 'Manny' to combine rides and sports to give joy),” Councilor Eugenio Gabuya Jr. said.

The amusement park will feature 30 modern recreational amenities, including bob and bee ride for kids, one vikings for kids and another for adults, bumper boat rides, spider, mad birds, two ferries wheels, two pirate ships, airplane, moon rocket ship, dragon boat, horror ride, imported UFO ride, bump cars, astroliner, galaxy, two giant inflatables (dry and wet), among others.

Each ride amounts to P30 to P50.

Two major mascots, Dora and Mickey Mouse, will also entertain the event live.

The theme park also features Sugbo Mercado, 25 barbecue stalls, beer plaza, special items from Mindanao, trade exhibits and weekly entertainment on big events, where one of the performers is Cebuano band Missing Filemon.

For the opening on Friday, about 200 orphans from the Cebu City Community Scout Youth Guidance Center were treated to free food and rides.

Among the children invited are from Bantay Bata 163, Parian Drop-in Center for Street Children, and Cebu City Sports Grassroots Kids.
