Upside Down World Cebu Family Bonding | Philippines


Fun family bonding at Upside Down World Cebu

One rainy afternoon in Cebu City, Philippines, we spent it indoors at the Upside Down World Cebu. It turned out a fun family bonding time.

The kids are suckers for trick art. We love how our photos would come out and how messed up our perspectives become. The girls really enjoy this stuff. They actually find it amazing. haha

Family Time at Upside Down World Cebu

Our family recently visited Cebu and their Aunt Loraine took us to the Upside Down World Cebu in Mandaue City.

Everybody is hungry. Meanwhile. Shane is already hangry.

The fully air-conditioned gallery has 11 rooms or set ups where you can pose and have your photos taken. Most them are rooms in the home. These are:

  • Living room
  • Library
  • Bedroom
  • Kids’ room
  • Market
  • Kitchen
  • Dining room
  • Laundry area
  • Shower room
  • Magical room
  • Casino

One of their favorites — the Kids’ Room.

The kids especially like the living room because there was a TV set and the kids’ room because of the toys! Each room is so realistic and complete with even the minutest details. The reality there is so messed up! haha Even my husband’s aunt and uncle, who are already seniors, also had fun with us.

Messed up galaxy. Look at Shane’s acting! This kid!

There were seven (7) people in our group, composed of five (5) adults and two (2) kids. Photography in each set up with the guided tour is about 5-8 minutes, including choreography. You can have several angles in each room because there are also different sides. It’s not just a flat wall backdrop.

“Dad, don’t!”

For example, in the shower room, there’s also the toilet where we had a lot of photos. I joked that we really liked toilet humor.  LOL

After that, it’s our free time and we went back to the different setups in order to have different poses.

Making Memories

We had a great bonding time at Upside Down World Cebu because everyone has to cooperate in order to have a nice, IG-worthy shot. Some of our poses had to have actions, so there was some physical activity, too.

And since we had a guide, they were able to take nice photos of us. It was really a good time to create happy memories with the whole family. Or you can bring your friends, for that matter.

Guided Tour and Free Time

When you enter the premises of Upside Down World Cebu, you will be asked to remove your shoes. You can wear socks or just go barefoot inside. You can also leave some of your bags in the lockers provided. But since they don’t have locks, just bring your valuables.

A guide will receive you and ask the number of people in your party. They will be the ones who will choreograph your poses in order to get the best possible results. They will also take your pictures. Their standard instructions would be, “Look up!”, “Look at the camera!”, and “Nga-nga! (open mouth)”. Our little Shane has memorized their instructions. haha

“Nga-nga! (open your mouths!)”, said the guide.

One guide is responsible for three rooms. Once done, you will be passed on to another guide.

After the guided tour, you can go back and roam around the halls again because there is no time limit. You can take as many photos as you want.

Family Bonding

Upside Down World Cebu is quite small but if everyone is playful enough, you can stay there for at least two hours. It is fun to imagine how to pose and look at your photos afterwards. Then you can re-do posing until you have achieved what you have desired. It was fully air-conditioned but we were sweating from all the silly poses we did. And also for running after Shane. haha

Our time at the laundry room. This is a first, as we actually don’t do our own laundry. haha

Places like these are for those who are game to make silly poses and also to keep on posing for the camera. KJs are not allowed here. haha

For those who are not into having their photos taken, they might find this place boring. It’s just a novelty. For us, it made the whole family happy. 😀

But while Upside Down World Cebu is great for family bonding moments, you might not want to go back there after you have been there once. It’s not like a resort or museum that you would like to keep coming back to. But if you are from Cebu and you have visitors from out of town, it’s a fun place to bring your guests.
