ICYMI, a huge fire broke out in Star City in Pasay earlier this morning, leaving our souls crushed. The blaze started in the amusement park’s stuffed toys and prizes stockroom, according to the city’s fire marshal Paul Pili.

In devastating aftermath photos shared by Pasay City Command, Control, Communication and Information Center, our childhood playground can be seen visibly destroyed – from the food court to the Star Flyer rollercoaster.

The fire was declared under control at around 4:00 AM, but the damage had been done: 80% of the buildings within the compound had been wrecked by the fire.

The park plans to rebuild and open its doors by October 2020, with this Christmas season marking the first time the theme park won’t be seeing guests during the holidays in years.

It’s a devastating sight to see for most of us who spent our younger days in Star City, with young and old alike feeling the sting of seeing such a memorable childhood place burn before our eyes.
