Waterworld Cebu opening

Waterworld Cebu opened on December 14, 2019. It is located at Barangay Umapad, Mandaue City, Cebu — near the tip of Marcelo Fernan Bridge in Mandaue City. It has a 3-hectare complex that will hopefully  put Mandaue City at the center of tourism as it is the biggest water park in Central Visayas. 

This is the first and biggest venture outside of Iloilo of the Eon Group of Companies, an Iloilo-based firm involved in real estate, hotel, and food manufacturing. The operations manager, Manuel Gruenberg, sees this undertaking as a means of bringing further the tourism investment of the country as well boosting job opportunities for the locals. The construction began in 2017.

There are a lot of extreme and kid-friendly rides in the park. Some activities are available too for those who wish to chill inside and are through riding the gigantic slides, or those who have already experienced them in their previous visits and prefer dry activities like bowling.
