Skywalk Adventure and Edge Coaster Ride

Our four day vacation (30th wedding anniv cebration) is over but I still got a hang-over of the spine-tingling adventures we had. The big kiddos’ goal on this Cebu trip of ours is to experience the so-called Skywalk and Edge Coaster Ride in Crown Regency Hotel and Towers in Cebu. I never had an inkling that I will be joining them on that crazy adventure. But with the non-stop nudging I somehow got the nerve and gave in. Thus, we took the elevator to the roof top, (I think it's the 38th floor) after paying the 900php/pax at the 26th floor. The price includes entrance fee, Edge Coaster Ride, Skywalk Adventure and Buffet dinner at the Hotel’s Roof Top Restaurant. Just by looking down at the ground down below while at the glass elevator made me shiver let alone stepping out onto the open railings for those heart pounding Sky Experiences. Whew! I nevertheless managed to collect all the courage in the world after having seen the big kiddos and other adventurers surviving the Edge Coaster with gusto. They even played on tilting the coaster over and over.. Omg!

Here are some photos taken by daughter and her friend (and the Tower's official photog)

Feeling like I'd be ejected from my seat.
Do I look scared? Lol!
My family plus daughter's special friend in the wacky mood before the freaky moment.
I was asked to extend my left limbs beyond the edge and that's the farthest I could give. Lol!
Hubby demonstrated how. Omg!

Those were just few of the exciting activities we had while in Cebu. Will post other escapades later. Thank you for your precious time. Have a great day!

Hi Beng Gee, wow! First time I read, see pics of this 'Edge Coaster'. Never heard about it before.
But one thing is, you can count me out with all this, ha ha.

We have a huge game park here with one of the World's highest and scariest roller coaster, and never been there. My wife too not keen.

But I love the pics here....never knew they have such entertainment to scare people, ha ha.
And that night scene is really gorgeous.
Hey, you look good in the parachute? Ha ha.
Ingat ka palagi, Lee.

Beng Gee said...

@Uncle Lee: I never thought of getting into that crazy adventure too eh. It turned out to be real thrill and fun,anyway.(that's as far as I'm concerned huh, Lol!)

@mayet: Looks quite scary pero kaya mo yun! It's fun!

Thanks for stopping over! See you again soon!

Beng Gee said...

@Cheryl: Oh my gosh! Yes, that, exactly was my expression when I reached the top of the tower and looked down. Indeed terrifying but only momentarily. It will be gone after a while and be replaced with thrills and excitement. Lol!

Glad to see you again here Cheryl! Have a great day!

I knew you have lots of fun..
I'm happy for you, friend!

angsarap said...

Ang saya naman, napaka thrilling! That roller coaster looks like the one on Stratosphere in Vegas

Beng Gee said...

@Alf: I was thinking that way too. Pero kaya ko pala. So I'm sure kayang-kaya mo yun!

Beng Gee said...

@Hensa: Oh yes, we had a tremendous fun! It was a kinda scary but full of excitement! ..An extreme kind of adventure!
Thanks Nensa! I hope you're having a great weekend!

Beng Gee said...

@Angsarap: Ay oo! I've read somewhere it is a clone of that one in Vegas, the Stratosphere. The engineer who constructed the stratos is also the one who created the local one. And there's another kind of extreme ride in the making to be opened in 2011. I say, great!Lol!
