Jungle Joe's World

First of all it is a FUN PLACE. A theme park for the family, Jungle Joe's World is located in the tropical forest area of Subic, Olongapo City and just a five minute ride from the Zoobic Safari.

At the entrance of the park, you will see a huge air-filled balloon character of Jungle Joe. Jungle Joe is a fictional Philippine Macaque Monkey-character. This monkey is native to Subic Bay area and in fact, you can see these monkeys alongside the roads and forests of the area.

For an entrance fee of Php 280, each visitor is entitled to 3 free coke and a train ride touring the various attractions of the 60-hectare park. After the ride, visitors can walk in the park and muse themselves in several bunkers such as Kiddy Play Zone, Indy 500 Racer, Playhouse Theater, Winter Wonderland, Jurassic Trail, Animal Park, Paintball Course and Sa Anaba Beach. Construction of other themed bunkers are still on-going.

Here are some shots I have taken while on the theme park:


Jungle Joe and Tribe Members dancing to a Song from High school Musical.


The Kiddie Playzone showcases high-quality slides, mazes, and jungle merry-go-rounds.


The Indy 500 Racer is themed after the Indianapolis 500 in the United States. It features a race-track built for small Roller Racer cars.


Jungle Joe’s Playhouse Theater is designed as a kind-of 1950’s high tech cinema house with comfortable bean bags as chairs.


It is Christmas all-year-round at the Winter Wonderland.


The Jungle Joe’s Zoo Ride adventure is a mini-trek through the jungle that will introduce you and your children to giant animal species from around the world.


The Jurassic Trail is my most favorite theme in the park where you can discover full-sized ancient prehistoric animals line-up in various points of the walk.


Jungle Joe's world is a fun experience specially for the kids. It is both entertaining and educational. So if you happen to pass by Subic, go check the place out!!!

  10. @ kyels - how right you are, the place brings the kid in everyone (without the slides and swings of course).

    @ bw - that thing is huge, i intended to show a pic with people on it so there will be comparison and for everyone to see how big Jungle Joe's image is.

  21. Looks like fun... do they still have live prehistoric animals? ;-)

    In any case it looks very scary... I guess many children are scared!

  24. @ sidney - lols. the only prehistoric thing alive in there are ferns.

  26. I went there with my kids as part of the Tour in Collegio De Sta.Rosa Makati. it was raining, anyway just to share some thoughts....I went to Singapore 2 years ago at Singapore Zoo and its really nice to go around with the train inside the jungle which is more convenient rather than walking all the way to the Jungle(Reptiles place) maybe you could do the same you try and see what I mean maybe the management think or copy the same as in Singapore I bet it WILL BE A BIG SUCCESS TOO!!!
