    Back in October 2019, we gave you an exclusive peek at Pororo Park, a new indoor theme park inside JPark Island Resort in Mactan, Cebu. But the piece de resistance of the 16.5-hectare resort is the sprawling water park, which has the only five-star rating in the country, as its management informs us. Believe us when we say one day is not enough to enjoy what it was to offer, especially for families. Take a look.

    The Amazon River is a lazy river pool that is perfect for families with toddlers to preschoolers.

    You can all lounge in a pool float or inflatable, relax and let the current take you on a leisurely ride.

    It's calm now, but the Wave Rider is a wave pool that will let you "surf" or bop along to the waves.

    Tip: The waves will happen at 1030 a.m. until noon and 2:30 p.m. until 4 p.m.

    This pool has a beach-like shoreline and is connected to the Amazon River and Wave Rider.

    This pool is where Aqua Aerobics and other fun-under-the-sun activities for guests happen.

    Water babies will be drawn to the Captain Hook’s pool because it features a Pirate ship and slides.

    Prepare yourself to spend the whole day here with all the fun water spouts, sprays, and splashes.

    The good news is none of the swimming pools are too deep for kids, and there are cute floaties available for kids and grownups at the lazy river area that has a smooth current and lots of spouting fountains to add to the fun.

    But if you have fearless and teens (are there any other kind?), the three towering slides in the water park will be quite an adrenaline rush. (These slides are recommended for kids 11 years old and above.)

    Our favorite (or your biggest fear) is the Space Bowl, which begins "with a steep downward slide.

    Then, it will send you plunging and spiraling in a "space bowl" and, ultimately, "flushes" you in a 6.4 ft. deep pool. (Honestly, it strikes the fear in us.)
