Danasan Eco Adventure Park : Cebu’s Family Getaway Destination

 

Danasan Eco Adventure Park has a variety of super fun and exciting activities. I have been there once in a year from 2016-2018. It never gets dull.

In 2016 and 2017, I did stay for only a day and I did different activities each year. Different mode of transportation has been experience by me.

This year of 2018 gives me a lot of time to do all the stuff that I have missed because we did a 2 Days 1 Night accommodation.

First in the list that me and my companion did is ATV (All Terrain Vehicle).

ATV ATM. With my GALS

I did have a great time doing ATV ,again. Also do not try to put your cellphone or anything valuable inside your pocket because I assure you it will fall (this is based on a real life experience *wink)

Next in line was Speedway. In this activity, you will ride a kinda-ish race speedway car. You will run the laps of a maximum of four (4).

That is the speedway track and the speedway car. There are two (2) available colors for the speedway car: red and yellow. It is easy to drive. Guides are present anywhere you go.

Then, Rope Course was up next.

Call me weird but I am very afraid doing stuff like this but believe me I did not fear sky-drop or the roller coaster ride in Universal Studios Singapore. I do trust mechanically engineered activity but in myself doing stuff that involves heights makes me feel fearful. But, I have successfully did the beginner level course. Cheers for me and also I do want to thank my companions for helping and giving me strength in finishing it.

After that we went to the Zipline Zone and you can choose whether to do horseback riding in going to your next destination or just ride their service.

Look at my companion. She is so happy. Seeing the mountainous while zip-lining and enjoying the fresh air plus serene environment will totally give you tranquil vibe.

I have ride the horse named Coco. I did struggle in riding the horse because I cannot reach the saddle’s stirrups. They have some available horses. You can also ask the guide to let the horse do some jog like speed if you want to experience some adrenaline . It was really fun.

 

Comes next is Skybike

Biking at mid air? Yes! Here, you get to fulfill your wildest dreams or imagination. My friends feeling the mixed cold air and hot sun. They really stopped biking just for me to take their pictures. It is totally safe my friends.

Next activity is Ostrich feeding,

Sky-drop (for the adrenaline junkie people)

120 ft. from the ground. Can you handle it?

I tell you that it takes a lot of courage to sit, watch and wait in line just to experience this activity. This is not for the weak hearts, pregnant or even high blood person. This is extremely blood pumping activity.

Kayaking /Boating

This is totally same as surfing but instead of waiting for waves, a mechanically induced device will pull you so you can surf-ish. Get it? As you can see, it is pretty easy but for a beginner it can be tough. Hand and leg coordination with balance are a must in trying this adventure.

Swimming pool
