Summit Ridge’s Eat, Shriek, and Be Scary! Halloween Party

Last October 30, the Nunag Family attended Summit Ridge’s Eat, Shriek, and Be Scary! Halloween Party.  We don’t have any Halloween events to attend except MBP’s Mad Hatter Halloween Party, so we decided to go to Tagaytay and look for an event there.  I really want to bring Neo to a lot of events since 2 years from now I know he will no longer enjoy this type of events.

The time stated in Summit Ridge’s website was 11am to 3pm.  Since it’s a Sunday, we first went to Victory Tagaytay to attend the church service before going to Summit Ridge.  We arrived at Summit Ridge almost 12pm.  The registration area was a little bit chaotic.  Apparently, the event was a walk-in one.  The day before I called the hotel’s hotline to reserve for this event, and inform the registration about this.  They told me that it’s just for the tickets (I am not sure what it meant, but I can only assume that the reservation was nonsense as it was not required during the registration).  We paid Php599 for each adult (lunch buffet included), kids 0-6 are free of charge, while kids 7-12 pays half price.

If the registration area was quite chaotic, this is nothing compared to the main function hall.  The guests who were admitted to the Halloween party was too much for the area to handle.  Some guests (we included) were not able to grab a table and chair because the seating capacity was already maximized.  We requested the hotel personnel to provide us a table, and they produced one, for sharing.  Our table, which was supposed to seat 4 people, was shared by 6. 

The program started almost 1pm.  There’s a costume contest, a puppet show, a magic show, and some games.  The kids enjoyed the program.  My little Neo did.

It was past 1pm when the buffet area was filled with food.  As if the chaos inside wasn’t enough, when the people started lining up and getting the food, it became worse.  Manners were forgotten, must be because it’s past mealtime and people were hungry already.  Some foods were not refilled ASAP.  Only the main course area has attendants.  The salad area, drinks area, and the desserts area were not manned.  So some guests forgot their proper conduct and just grab the food that they can.  Some even took hold of the whole tray of food.  It was really chaotic. 

Cute cupcakes. 

 We were able to eat past 2pm.  And please don’t even ask for the taste of the food.  L  Neo only ate two brownies and went back to playing with the other kids. 

The program concluded with a trick or treat.  Kids were given a loot bag consisting of three (3) small junk food pouches.  Neo was a happy kid to be able to get one. 

Then we proceeded to the hotel lobby again where the Volkswagen Junior Driving Course was located.  It was held at the same day as the Halloween party (one of the reasons we went to Summit Ridge).  Neo had so much fun on this and a blog post will be dedicated for this.

This is an honest recollection of what we experienced at Summit Ridge’s Eat, Shriek, and Be Scary! Halloween party.  It wasn’t a very nice one save for the Volkswagen Junior Driving Course.  The hotel staff in-charged was not able to estimate properly the number of guests they accommodated.  But to be fair, none of the staffs were rude to guests, they were all trying to assist as nicely as their patience could.  I hope their next Halloween event would be a more organized one.


  1. I likewise promised the boys that we will look for Halloween parties within Tagaytay. But we werent able to do so as it took us late to have lunch and finish our horse back riding and zipline adventure. Nonetheless, they enjoyed their first experience to zipline. Hopefully next year I to.bring them to different Halloween parties until they want pa. They are growing too fast and I do not want to waste time. Ihihi, by the way, your little man is so cute on his costume. I.hope the hotel will have a good estimate of guests next year.

    1. Naku super true. In the coming years our kids will no longer like dressing up for halloween. Kaya we will attend halloween parties as long as gusto pa ng little boy.

  2. I attended one trick or treat event in Tagaytay too, disappointed na ko sa experience namin kasi sobrang dami din ng tao (nagpareserve kami pero pwede naman walk-in). Naubusan kami ng food at ang tagal ng refill and ang hirap makajoin sa games sa dami ng bata. But reading your post, mas ok pa pala experience namin. Buti na lang may Volkswagen Junior Driving Course at naenjoy ni Neo.

    1. Neo naman was entertained during the event. Kids kasi look at the magic and puppet show and games they are happy na haha

  3. I'm really glad to see that Philippines is now starting to embrace the spirit of Halloween and the merriment that goes with the occasion. I've had the opportunity to experience Halloween while in the US and I enjoyed it immensely. I like buying treats for the young and not so young ones too. It's so cute seeing the little kids with the family going around the village and taking their precious fur babies too, in full cutie costumes!

    I bet your kid and the other children really had fun!

    1. This is true. At least we stopped thinking about scary things during undas na. When it was our time, puro katatakutan lang ang undas. Kids nowadays are fortunate to enjoy its different side naman, the halloween.
