Tree Top Adventure, Subic

Standard

I would always see myself as a thrill-seeker. That’s why it would not be a surprise  if activities that promise adrenaline rush from such exhilarating events truly make me salivate. When I heard about Tree Top Adventure in Subic back in 2010, I have decided to make Valentines 2010 a little bit more exciting by trying out Tree Top Adventure. And who else would I try it out with, of course, with my greatest adventure-buddy, Paolo!

And so we drove from Paranaque to Subic, with intermittent bouts of overheating in the SCTEX. We thought that bad vibes would engulf our valentine thirst for adventure, but God is good. We made it to Subic in about 4 hours.

With happy spirits, we alighted the car, and lo and behold… a queue! We did not quite expect the huge volume of people waiting in queue to try out the different attractions. After a second of rationalizing, yes, the queue makes sense because it was the Valentine Weekend and the Hot Air Balloon Festival weekend as well. But the queue did not discourage us. We were still extra enthusiastic to defy gravity and the excitement of trying something for the first time.

And we were not disappointed!

We were still able to try out three rides that were very much worth it.

The Superman Ride

From the name of the ride itself, this ride will let you break free and experience for a few seconds how it is to be like Superman! The velocity of the ride is not much frightening, so for those of you who are hesitating to try out this ride, fear not! It’s pretty much like the zipline, only that you have handrails in front of you that you need to hold on to.

Silver Surfer

The name of the ride was perhaps inspired by the movie, “Fantastic Four: the Rise of the Silver Surfer”. In this  ride, you need to be standing upright as you hold on to the hand rails of the Silver Surfer. And then, without any warning, you’ll go flying in fast speed while your backs are turned without you having a clear idea until when you’ll be pulled away (well, it depends on which position you choose to stand on the Silver Surfer). But nevertheless, I just assure you shrieks of pure excitement and adrenaline rush.

Praying not to fall from the Silver Surfer!

And my favorite ride of all–the TREE DROP. Literally speaking, the name would speak for itself. You will be suspended around 10 feet from the ground, face down, as if you paid to be tortured  given the exhilaration of your life. Those microseconds of your life may perhaps be one of the most exciting moments that you’ll ever have. It’s so liberating!!!

Ready, set... aaaaahhhh!!!

One of the most liberating experiences of my life... as of yet!

What to Expect:

Encounters with speed, velocity, and lots of physics in action 🙂 My most favorite ride would perhaps be the TREE DROP. Literally, all of the forces of nature would coincide to give you microseconds of happiness! Trust me, you have to try it.

Oh we're such happy campers!!!
