We are changing the tourism landscape by offering a unique and different kind of experience to local families. It is also an added attraction to foreign guests,” said Belmont One President Chester Lim.

Their rides are imported from accredited manufacturers abroad who are members of the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), ensuring not just an exhilarating experience, but a safe and secure one, more importantly.
