Araneta City’s Iconic Theme Park is Back


For generations, Fiesta Carnival spelled holiday fun for kids and kids-at-heart who trooped there to spend an entire day of unadulterated joy – a fond memory imprinted on the minds and hearts of countless Pinoys.

Now, you get to relive Cubao's old Fiesta Carnival as Araneta City revives feels of its classic theme park in time for the Christmas season!

Last November 18, the City of Firsts opened its Mini Fiesta Carnival to capture the vibe of the iconic theme park. With  the carnival situated in an open space, more people will be able to see and experience the unique brand of fun that only the legendary theme park can bring. The many rides and attractions will surely add holiday fun and keep the whole family entertained.

Mini Fiesta Carnival features a variety of attractions. Kids will enjoy a great time at the Boat Pool, Mini Trampoline, Walking Dino, and Jurassic Adventure. The whole family or barkada visiting will have fun together at the Happy Cars and the Carousel. There's also the Happy Chopper ride, a Snow Globe for IG-worthy photos, and an exciting Road Train which goes outside the Carnival and roams around Araneta City.

“Our Mini Fiesta Carnival promises to make the holidays merrier and more joyful with many rides, sights, and attractions,” Marjorie Go, AVP for Marketing of Araneta City, said. “We revived the essence and feel of the Fiesta Carnival from our childhood, and updated it for modern times. We are sure that you will love the time you’ll spend at Fiesta Carnival this Christmas season.”

Apart from the exciting rides and games, the well-loved Mini Fiesta Carnival features the iconic Giant Christmas Tree, and the returning Christmas on Display! Participating businesses allow families to get in the bulk of their holiday shopping early while enjoying some great food and beverages.

Araneta City's Mini Fiesta Carnival is open from 2 PM to 11 PM every day until January 8, 2023. Entrance fee costs ₱50 with free food or drink. Tickets for each attraction vary, but a try-all-you-can pass is also available at ₱500.

“We are all about bringing our customers a Christmas like no other. The reopening of our well-loved Fiesta Carnival is our holiday gift to Filipino families who long for an accessible holiday destination where everyone can have fun. So, please visit the Fiesta Carnival and create lasting memories with us at the City of Firsts,” Go added.
