BranchesEdit

TagaytayEdit

The Sky Ranch branch in Tagaytay is situated along Tagaytay–Nasugbu Highway, Tagaytay, Cavite which opened in March 2013. It is located inside a property owned by SM Investments Corporation's subsidiary SM Land commercial property division (later merged with SM Prime Holdings, Inc),[1] where several shops and restaurants are also located.[2] It includes kiosks, rides, and the Sky Eye Ferris wheel, which is 63 meters (207 ft) tall and has 32 gondolas.[3] The amusement park temporarily closed following ash fall caused by the Taal Volcano eruption on January 12, 2020 but reopened almost a week later on January 18.[4]

PampangaEdit

The Sky Ranch branch in San Fernando, Pampanga is part of the SM City Pampanga shopping mall complex. It also hosts the Pampanga Eye, a 65-meter (213 ft) tall Ferris wheel.[5]

BaguioEdit

The Sky Ranch branch is located at Luneta Hill, Upper Session Road, Baguio which opened in 2018. Its opening was met with opposition from surrounding universities which expressed concern on noise pollution generated by the park.[6]
