Davao City's Latest Attraction Is Not Your Average Zip Line
Channel your inner hamster while 60 feet up in the air.
(SPOT.ph) You've definitely heard of zip lines, and have probably ridden at least one of its many variations: From the superman, to the swing, to the bike, and everything in between. But Eden Nature Park and Resort in Davao City is bringing the zip line game to a whole new level with their latest attraction: The Skywheel. Enjoy the thrill of balancing in a metal wheel, which—in true hamster wheel fashion—you have to propel a distance of 200 meters each way with just your steps. Did we mention that it's 60 feet up in the air?
It costs P200 per person to get on the Skywheel, though you must weigh at least 50 kilos in order to turn the wheel. Trained operators will also be there to guide you, and all equipment is secure so there's nothing to worry about!
The attraction opened on May 28, the first of its kind in Mindanao. Eden Nature Park and Resort Davao is known for its extreme attractions, including Skyrider, their 20-meter high zip line; Skyswing, a swing ride suspended 95 feet from the ground; and Skycycle, a bike on a 60-feet high cable with a distance of 200 meters. "Through the years, Eden remains to be one of Davao's premiere tourist destinations not just for its eco- and agri-tourism but for its adventourism," said Ida Damo of The Ida Chronicles.
The Skywheel is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eden Nature Park and Resort is in Barangay Eden, Toril, Davao City. For more information, visit Eden Nature Park and Resort's website or their Facebook page.
