I already heard of the famous Sky Experience Adventure a few years back when it first started but I didn’t expect that one day, I would be able to try four of the most extreme sky rides in a single day! Cebu Finest.com was invited by Crown Regency Hotel & Towers to visit their state-of-the-art facilities as well as experience their heart-pumping sky rides.
Hailed as the world’s very first and only amusement ride of its kind, The Edge Coaster is by far the craziest, adrenaline pumping experience I’ve ever had in my entire life. I do not have a fear of heights but I haven’t experienced something as extreme as this before. You will be directed around the edge of the building high above at the 38th floor of the tower and strapped into a two-seat platform. Your seat can be tilted up to 55 degrees allowing you to fully enjoy the magnificent view of Metro Cebu and the nearby islands around 130 meters above ground.
Sky Walk Extreme
We haven’t fully recovered from our Edge Coaster experience yet when our guide led us to the next thrilling Sky Experience Adventure – the Sky Walk Extreme. Basically, you will walk around the transparent glass flooring on the edge of the Crown Regency Hotel and Towers’ 37th floor which is about 126 meters above ground. We were accompanied by our witty and entertaining guide, Bjorn. He was kind to share some of his experiences and pointed several Cebu landmarks we haven’t recognized when we were on top. We also did the “one foot at the edge” challenge where you have to pose for the camera with your one foot at the outer edge of the rim.
This was what I had been waiting for! I’ve always wanted to try the country’s first and only urban zip line. There is something special in zipping across two buildings because it kind of looks more treacherous and exciting. I guess that’s because once you’re up in the air, you’ll be able to see more structures compared to the usual zip lines where you only see a dense forest, a lake or a river. The view looked so sharp at 500 ft up in the air and I was actually hesitant when it was already my turn. Thank God, I survived!
This is where you get to enjoy the view of the city while you travel along a motorized zip line from Tower 3 to Tower 1. Unlike the Tower Zip, the travel time is much slower that you would actually shudder and ask yourself, “When is this going to end?” On a brighter note, I certainly took my time looking at the extraordinary view of the different infrastructures.
There are actually other Sky Experience Adventure amenities available like the Vertigo Wall, Cliff Hanger, Vertex and more! I would certainly go back to try all of them.
It was indeed a fun and crazy experience. Thank you, Crown Regency Hotel and Towers for inviting us!
