3 Adventure Parks Near Manila
Have an adrenaline-pumping time with the gang!
You and your friends are a tight-knit group, and you make it a point to see each other once in a while to bond. But pigging out at food parks, having conversations over coffee, and dancing and boozing late into the night may start to feel a bit stale. If that’s the case, why not try something new like visiting an adventure park?
Treetop Adventure in Subic
Entrance fee: P100
Treetop Adventure is perfect for nature lovers and thrill-seekers. With rides set amidst a lush wildlife background, visitors can enjoy a satisfying mix of relaxing nature scenes and blood-pumping adventure. You and your friends can zip-line through trees like Superman with their aptly named Superman Ride, or have a heart-stopping freefall from their Tree Drop attraction. If you're afraid of heights, you can just opt to take the trekking adventure.
How to Get There: Take the North Luzon Expressway and exit at Dau in Pampanga. Enter Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway and get off at Tipo Road. At the intersection, make a right and then turn left towards Argonaut Highway. Drive continuously towards Aparri Road and just follow the signs towards Treetop Adventure.
Sandbox in Porac, Pampanga
Entrance fee: P100
Sandbox is another great adventure park in the north. Located within the urban residential district of Alviera, Sandbox is like a huge playground for both kids and adults with its variety of outdoor attractions and activities. Some of the popular ones are the Giant Swing and the Adventure Tower, a five-storey high structure with facilities for rappelling, wall climbing, free falling, and others. If you're a fan of zip-lining, then you'll love their Avatar One ride, which is said to be the country's first roller coaster zip-line. You can also try outdoor archery and ATV or UTV rides.
How to Get There: Take the NLEX and get off at the SCTEX exit. After driving through SCTEX, exit at Porac.
Camp Explore is one of the most accessible adventure parks from Manila. Located at Mount Purro Nature Camp in Barangay, Calawis, Antipolo City, it is primarily a campsite that encourages campers to disconnect from the world and reconnect with nature, but it also has many adventure facilities. Rope courses and obstacle courses are available for team building activities. There is also a zip-line for that rush you've been craving.
How to Get There: For commuters, take a jeepney bound for Cogeo in Antipolo at Aurora Boulevard or Marcos Highway. From there, take another jeepney going to Paenaan and get off at Kanto Veterans. Once there, you’ll need to take two tricycle rides towards Mount Purro Nature Camp.
