Roll Like a Hamster at This Fun-Filled Adventure Park
Not all zip lines are made equal.
(SPOT.ph) We've all heard of the Superman-style zip line, the plunge dive, and even skycycling. But have you ever tried rolling inside a hamster wheel while 60 feet above ground? Papa Kit's Marina and Fishing Lagoon, an adventure park in Liloan, Cebu, features a Hamster Wheel ride for P200 per head. It's suspended about 60 feet up in the air, where you can also ride the 800-meter zip line for P200 per head and skybike also P200 per head.
Other fun activities include horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, and wall climbing. You can also book a Silot Bay Cruise, take a dip in the swimming pool, or try your luck at the floating inflatable. After a full day of activities, you can stay in one of the resort's accommodations, with rates ranging from P2,800 to P5,500.
Papa Kit's Marina and Fishing Lagoon is in Silot Bay, Liloan, Cebu. Adventure rides are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fee for the Hamster Wheel is at P200 per head. For more information, follow Papa Kit's on Facebook or visit Papa Kit's website.
How to get there: Hop on a jeepney bound for Liloan at the SM City Cebu Terminal. The ride takes about 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can ride a van and pay a one-way fare of P50.
If you enjoy sky-high attractions, you can check out these adventure parks around the Philippines:
Eden Nature Park and Resort in Davao City also has its own version a similar ride called the Skywheel. You get to balance in a metal wheel, which is also 60 feet up in the air. This time, you have a shorter distance of 200 meters.
Dahilayan Adventure Park in Bukidnon just came out with an exciting attraction called the Razorback Mountain Coaster. Dubbed as the Philippines' first alpine coaster or mountain coaster, it features a 600-meter monorail track that starts from a hilltop and goes through the Dahilayan Forest. This attraction is a type of summer tobbogan, which uses a sled or cart to run down a track. A full ride on the Razorback takes about two minutes.
E.A.T. Danao or Eco, Educational, Extreme Adventure Tour is a thrill-seeker's playground when in the island of Bohol. Its most extreme attraction is the Plunge which drops you from a 200-meter-high gorge where you first have to do a 45-meter free fall before being launched on a pendulum swing of up to 100 meters in diameter.
Tree Top Adventure Nature Park in Subic proves that trees aren't just for climbing and forests aren't just for camping. You can also glide from one tree to another (well, almost!) like the Na'vi in Avatar or even swing on branches like Tarzan.
Sandbox Adventure Park's attractions, mostly above-ground, have views of the surrounding mountain range and wide plains in Pampanga. Its signature facilities are the Giant Swing, considered the country's tallest swing at 10 meters, and the Avatar One, the Philippines' first roller coaster zip line.
