Glico’s by Ron

Awesome rides, exciting video games, and a great eexperience…you guys still remember that ultra cool and ultra fun place at the Glorietta named Glico’s? Yeah, that’s right! That place where most of us grew up playing and enjoying the former amusement/thempark inside a mall. Glico’s was one of the places where kids during that time would literally enjoy themselves. The trademark of Glico’s was its school bus and the mini roller coaster. The coaster was small but riding it still gives you goosebumps. The arcade area was also an attraction for teenagers and kids alike.

Another memorable thing about Glico’s was that cool drink with dry ice and a fancy straw. Almost every kid in Glico’s would be seen holding this fun drink. Of course Glico’s has now closed down. I think Timezone has replaced Glico’s in a way. Some malls in the Philippines continue the Glico’s tradition by having amusement parks in malls. The names that come to mind are Whimsy’s and Robinson’s Dreamscape.

    I remember drinking Bubble Juice! Once you’re seen walking around with it, you’re deemed ‘in’. Diba and in Glorietta before they had an ice cream parlor pa? I don’t remember the name…it sounds like Coppenhagen or something.

    Is there any mall here in the Philippines were the Glicos is still operating?

    • 14. Unimportant  |  January 26, 2015 at 11:18 am

      Glicos has been dead for a long long time. I miss my happy childhood place. But here in the real world, only money and the rich matter.

      I do remember seeing a shadow of what glicos once was over at SM Megamall. somewhere at the very top floor.

      That was back in 2012/2013. I don’t know if it’s still there…

      I miss mini golf and the carnival arcade games…

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
