Within a profoundly pleasant living space of traditional Filipino interiors complimenting the vibrant nature around, children are gently drawn into the heart of Mother Nature, where their connection to it lies in the privilege of sensing a variety of flowers everywhere, understanding the growth of food crops into the seasons, communicating with birds and insects of diverse species, honing self-respect and respect for others through unstructured rhythm, indulging in flavourful food that they have picked from the garden, and seeing people caring for the fields from which their food grows. Reservation is a must so do contact them before visiting! Sky Ranch lures families in with its imposing projection of a humongous ferriswheel. For something as big as this, you might as well get in and experience it with older kids. Kids below 5 have limited fun rides to choose from, while older ones have more. My four-year old daughter, Luna enjoyed very much Merry-Go-Round, the Horseback Riding and the mini boat swaying ride even after seeing a couple of boys crying for fear while riding with their dad.
