It's a good location to bring the kids to familiarize with horses... The staff is nice and the horses are quite ok. It is reasonably priced and is possible to rent equipment. There is a small shop where is possible to buy refreshments.

Air Force City Park

Reviewed By Papa-Caps - Lipa City, Philippines

This shows the remnants of the glory days of the Philippine Air Force. Free entrance and nice location for taking pictures especially if you are fond of military aircrafts. Many students enjoy the shade of the big trees and some families are also spending their time picknicking in the area. After that long drive along NLEX, this could be a nice spot to stretch a little before hitting SCTEX and TPLEX on the way to Baguio City.

Clark Museum

Reviewed By bulegila - Sydney, Australia

Called into the Museum on my recent trip to Angeles. I remember coming here 10 years ago and there has been quite a significant change. On my first trip basically the museum was filled with items about World War II and the eruption of Pinatubo. Now it is divided into 4 sections. The first on natives and their tools, the second on volcanoes and their effects, the third on Modern Philippine history and the fourth is a whole section devoted to the set up of the Clark Freeport zone. This last section seemed like a whole bunch of pointless flag waving and back slapping.

Reviewed By d3dr3i - Quezon City, Philippines

We visited on Feb. 25 (Sunday) which was the day after their grand opening. Overall, it was a really fun and worthwhile experience, something everybody will totally enjoy. Here are some of my observations that may need improvement from the management and staff:
1. There were no visible information on the counter/ entrance for the rates/ prices of entrance fee, locker and cabana rentals.
2. Queue for entering the premises using the RFID bracelets took a little long. There were some instances wherein the machines took long to scan the bracelets, delaying entrance for the guests.
3. Food kiosks don't have enough shade. So you get irate and hangry customers when the queue is long.
4. There are 3 food kiosks, each serving different food options. The kiosk serving fried chicken has the longest line. Probably because it only has one (1) cashier. So they really should add more cashiers for each of their kiosks and they should at least dedicate one cashier for customers ordering with senior citizen companions.
5. At the food kiosks, some guests only choose their order at the cashier. Probably because the menu is only printed on paper which is laminated by the way. But then, there are not enough copies of this menu to be passed around. It would really be a great thing if they come up with digital menu boards, or like the ones we see on fast food chains.
6. Not much food variety, especially if you're a vegetarian or vegan. By the way, no bringing of food and beverage inside the park (Actually, I'm not against this policy).
7. Strict implementation of the rules by the staff. Okay so on this one, the other guests are to be blamed. If you read the rules posted on each of their attractions, it states that slippers are not to be worn on their attractions. Sadly, some of the guests do not follow this. And yet, the staff also are not strict on implementing this.
8. One of my nephews got lost, so my brother-in-law asked one of the lifeguards where he can go to ask for help. Unfortunately, the lifeguard said that his task was to oversee the kids at the pool only. So maybe, a good briefing on the staff should be done.
Anyway, for the good points:
1. All attractions are amazing! Some attractions need a group of 4 or 2 by the way.
2. All the staff are friendly and nice.
3. They have a separate toilet and shower room for the ladies and gents. There is also a family changing room.
4. Lockers are situated near the entrance.
5. I've heard one of the staff say that in the future, they would only allow up to 3500 guests per day, and those who would like to visit should make a reservation. I'm not sure if this will really be implemented but it is a great policy if ever. That way, guests will surely be able to experience every attraction the water park has to offer.
5. Park is clean. :D
I would rate this 4.5 for the fun experience! Two thumbs up!

Puning Hot Spring

Reviewed By petelovestotravel - Clark Freeport Zone, Philippines

If you can't afford to trek Mt. Pinatubo, this is the closest thing you can do to experience it. Not really the crater, but the Mountains of sands and the rugged terrain similar to when trekking Mt. Pinatubo.
The tour starts with a registration at Station 1. This is where you pay the all-inclusive fee that varies depending on the season and if you're a foreigner or local (Tip: the fee is lower for locals). This is also the station where you will have your buffet meal, which you can do right away after eating or after the trip to the hot spring.
Station 2 is where you will have your spa where you will be buried in heated sand (there's a burning pit under the sand spa) and the masseuses will literally walk on top of your buried bodies to massage you. You get this experience for 30 minutes, after which you can take a shower. During our trip, we went to Station 2 only after we have been to Station 1.
Station 1 is where you can experience the different levels of heated pools, which are naturally heated by water flowing from Mt. Pinatubo. Different level in terms of height and level of heat. Going to Station 3 will also afford you to witness the breathtaking view formed by the cascade of lahar and water some 25 years ago.
My suggestion is to have this wonderful experience during the cooler months of December and January.
