The amusement park is beaten and should be recalled for maintenance. Currently, the park is not very appealing and it seems that anytime any of the rides would break loose.

Took my son here and was excited even if it's unacceptable park. There was a 500 fixed rate but so not worth as there were only about 3-5 rides that functioned when they opened on christmas and the line was long. The floor or lack thereof was filthy. Did not have a great experience and not surprised it was closed.

We went here for a birthday celebration. There are only a few rides and some carnival games. The place is wide open so no protection from the heat or rain. But that doesn't matter now since this place has been closed for several months already.

I have been to cebu 3 times now and tried to visit this place on various occasions. Also driven past and it was always closed. Writing this so others are careful before making plans to visit.

Have been to st James park several times. The "new and improved" park is a great place to spend several hours. It is easy to get to and parking is convenient. There are enough rides and activities for all ages. The younger ones will definitely enjoy the trampoline and the maze, while the older kids would enjoy the more adventurous... More

This park is right across a mall and is really well lit at night. There is a really nice trampoline and all the rides are brand new. They have nice brick walkways and very clean, cemented areas. No mud whatsoever, I don't know what the other reviewers are talking about here. There is beautiful grass around the trampoline and the... More
