We first learned about Zoocobia from a feature in “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho” wherein they showed these Gravity Cars. Since Aileen (my wife) really enjoyed Luge in Singapore, she was very eager to check these Luge -like gravity cars. We’ve been to Clarkfield, Pampanga several times but never heard of this place so I was a little challenged to find this.
Day in, day out. Even though it was a the back of my mind, I never really had the urgency to go there. What the heck. But since Valentine’s day is fast approaching and I haven’t really thought of any surprises for Aileen, a plan was made. A plan that will surely benefit Jacob – why not go Clarkfield, Pampanga and find Zoocobia.
Fast forward, it was February 14. While the rest of the world are dating in fancy restaurants or watching at the movie-houses, we three (me, Jacob and Aileen) were driving our way to Pampanga. With only map on my mind, we drove to NLEX, exit to SCTEX and made an exit to Clark North. From there it’s easy coz you’ll find several signboard that directs you to Zoocobia Fun Zoo.
Here are some interesting details.
The have several offerings at different prices. If my memory serves me right, we got the P425.00/person for the zoo tour. We’re not really interested with the zoo, but you can’t go straight to the Gravity Cars without entering the zoo premises
Interaction with Animals:
You can actually feed the animals for a minimum fee of P20/person for each stop. Our first stop was the love birds cage. For P20/person you can actually feed this flock of birds at the palm of your hands.
Jacob enjoyed feeding the camel (since we rarely see Camels here) and riding the miniature horse. For the Gravity Car, you have to pay P75/person per ride. Jacob and Aileen would’ve wanted to make a 2nd ride if not for the rain that’s starting to pour that time.
At the end of all the stops with all the feeding the birds, ostrich, bear cat, camel, riding the miniature horse, touching the albino phyton and riding the Gravity Car, we have spent more or less another P500.00. But it was all worth it, specially for Jacob who until now, still remembers that he actually feed these camels.
At the farther end, there’s still this signboard that says “Paradise Ranch”. We tried checking but looks closed at that time so we weren’t able to check what’s inside.
