Here it is! We will finally share what really happened few weeks ago when we went to Tagaytay.
We were invited to experience and witness an unforgettable annual event which were the Dinner in the Dark and Black Magic Show.
In case you want to stay overnight because the event will end around 7 PM, you may opt to stay at Residence Inn.
But before that, we had a quick tour at Zoori! Here are some of the animals we encountered.
Here’s what you will see upon entrance.
You can also feed and take pictures with these birds.
And then here’s the wild animals!
We also rode a cable car! Look at the wonderful view. It’s almost sunset when we did it.
Cable Car costs only 150 php good for 2-way already. After that, we went straight to the venue of the Dinner of the Dark.
DINNER IN THE DARK
It is already on its 5th year now. Zoomanity group, one of the leading companies in the park industry, offers a unique experience to have your dinner in the dark.
Originated in Switzerland, it aims to raise awareness in visual impairment and for everyone to understand what it feels like to live in a world where lights are off, permanently.
HOW IS IT DONE?
Before the dinner, participants will be oriented about the do’s and don’ts inside the room. Afterward, participants will be given a blindfold to cover their eyes to experience total darkness, no peaking allowed!
While entering the room, your group will be assisted by admirable guys that are visually impaired, and they will guide you towards your table. By the way, the room is in total darkness as in there are no lights on while in the middle of the event.
After everyone is settled, it is where the fun starts! You will be eating your dinner without seeing and knowing what it is unless you taste it. But don’t worry, they are using a system to eat, which I will not tell you guys, for it is better experienced first hand.
Accompanied with good music, played skillfully by another awesome guy, the event is truly exceptional.
But beyond the fun and excitement while eating, it was those guides and those visually impaired people made the experience more interesting and worthwhile.
For 30 minutes, I felt how hard it was for them. I realized how an everyday walk for some of us, is equivalent to a journey for them not knowing where their goal is.
The overall experience was an eye opener.
BLACK MAGIC SHOW
After an inspiring dinner, we head to watch the Black Magic Show which was their theme for the month of November, because you know, scary November.
And as the name suggests, the next few minutes filled with awe and thrill.
The show was comprised of magic tricks, magnificent dance numbers, precise acrobatic stunts, and a collection of scary characters that will pass through the isle, making you scream and shout.
They wrapped it up by mingling with the crowd, taking and sharing photo ops for the gram.
This coming December, as they say, “Winter is coming.” They will be showcasing a white magic show, guess you want to let it go and go there.
Those two events was a good combination of entertainment and inspiration. A good serving of realization that darkness is not as bad as everybody think it is, cause you’ll need it eventually to appreciate what light truly is.
