MANILA, Philippines – After over two years of closure, Star City is finally reopening even as the country is experiencing another surge in COVID-19 cases.
On its Facebook page on Wednesday, January 5, the amusement park in Pasay City announced that it will have a soft opening on January 14.
The Star Pass – which gives vistors ride-all-you-can access – is available at an introductory price of P400, and can be purchased at the gate. Online ticketing details will be announced at a later time.
According to the post, the park will be open daily from 2 pm to 10 pm.
The Star City complex halted operations after a fire razed both the theme park and offices of the Manila Broadcasting Corporation in October 2019. Since then, the park – a Christmas season tradition for many Manilenyos – has remained closed.
The news of the park’s reopening comes on the same day that the country recorded over 10,000 new COVID-19 cases. However, amusement parks are still allowed to operated at a limited capacity under Alert Level 3, which is effective in the National Capital Region until January 15. – Rappler.com
