Subic opens 1st motorized zipline in Asia

    SUBIC BAY FREEPORT – The Tree Top Adventure theme park has announced the upgrading of its facilities in the Subic Freeport, including the introduction of the first motorized zipline course in Asia.

    Tree Top Adventure CEO Ma. Camille Montejo said in a press conference on Saturday that their team-building facility at the Jungle Environment Survival Training (JEST) Camp here contains facilities for two slow-paced and four fast-paced activities.

    These include the so-called “Superman Ride,” which is the only motorized zipline course in Asia, Montejo added.

    “If you want to see the forest and appreciate nature from the top of the trees, you could try the Canopy Ride,” Montejo said.

    The entire ride, she added, has a hanging bridge and five stations, which can carry three persons at a time. The ride transfers from one tree to another.

    “Meanwhile, for heart-pounding action, try the Superman Ride. It’s a horizontal motorized zipline where you’ll be soaring back and forth in less than a minute,” she added.

    One slow-paced activity in the park is the Trekking Adventure, which is basically a tour of the area. During the trek, however, the tour guide introduces the visitor to local plants and trees, and share interesting facts about them.

    Another activity is the “Parachute Fall” wherein the tourist goes upwards slowly, nand is then quickly dropped after reaching the height of 75 feet. This activity, like that stunt in the movie “Mission Impossible” brings you back to the ground in a matter of seconds.

    Members of the media who were invited for the team-building activity noted that the new Tree Top Adventure facility provides a venue to teach and gain camaraderie and leadership. While the activities are all motorized, participants learn to help each other and to lift their own weight.

    With the newest attractions, the Tree Top Adventure park aspires to be among the most popular tourism draws here as the Subic Bay Freeport gears up for summer.

    Montejo added that while some of the rides give high-adrenaline rush, the facilities are safe for everyone.

    “We want to assure everybody that the facility is as eco-friendly as it can be. Safety is certainly our main concern here,” Montejo added.
