Last July, I along with dive buddies Ate Claudia Artazo of Cagayan de Oro and Michael Correa of Calamba City, had a chance to dive the waters of Moalboal and visit the Kawasan Falls in the neighboring town of Badian, Cebu Province. It was a fun filled weekend. The great underwater scenery of Moalboal complements the natural water massage we experienced while riding the bamboo raft in Kawasan Falls. But of course these are totally different stories.
So after our awesome side trip in Badian and the unforgettable dives in Moalboal, we went back to Cebu City to try its latest adventure hot spot – the Sky Experience Adventure , a total contrast of the underwater adventure we had in Moalboal.
The Sky Experience Adventure of Crown Regency Hotel Cebu – Fuente Osmeña is the first of its kind indoor recreational adventure in the country that offers a totally different thrill way above the usual expectations. It is located on top of Cebu City’s highest hotel tower along the busy Fuente Osmeña Highway, near Cebu Provincial Capitol.
It features the country’s first Skywalk Extreme (similar to Macau Tower Skywalk), the world’s very first and only amusement ride of its kind – Edge Coaster, Sky Observatory, Sky Bar, Club 36, Vivo playroom, 4-D Theater, Stratus International Function Room, Sparkz Restobar and soon the Insanity Orbit.
THE EDGE COASTER
Uniquely the world’s very first and only amusement ride of its kind, the Edge Coaster goes around the edge of the building while riders are locked onto a rail seat. High above at the 38th floor of the tower, riders can indulge in a breathtaking panorama of the entire Cebu landscape 130.84 meters above ground.
The SkyWalk Extreme will give you that natural high by walking around the edge of the building with an overhead safety harness at 126.55 meters high above the street.
The Sky Observatory offers every guest the best view of the city with its coin-operated telescopes. It costs only P10.00 for a three-minute view of objects of interest to any viewer.
At the Sky Bar, fun is literally “sky-is-the-limit!” You can chill out with your closest buds, chat the night away with your favorite non-alcoholic drinks in hand, and marvel at the city 38 floors below your feet.
Behold the greatest enchantment of your life! Transport yourself to a world of surprise where you can experience ultimate adventure with all your senses. Go under the sea and enjoy the “Deep Sea Adventure”, or travel back through time when dinosaurs ruined the Earth in “Dinosaur Rampage”, or discover the dangers lurking on “The Lost Island,” only at the first 4D Theater in the Queen City of the South – Cebu City. Sense the pleasure, feel the perils, and immerse into the drama like no other!
VIVO PLAY ROOM
Located at the 18th floor, this is truly a kid’s haven of fun and play! It is one of Cebu’s three-level Playroom where your kids meet other kids at play. It’s also an ideal place to celebrate your child’s birthday.
Dine with the lights and the sound of live bands at the 37th floor! Sparkz Restobar is yet another hangout that will add excitement to Cebu’s urban night life.
Club 36 is an exclusive Gentlemen’s Club where indulgence is reserved for the chosen few. Strictly for gentlemen, it’s the perfect venue for male bonding and business talks.
Celebrate special occasions here at Stratus. A perfect venue for your wedding, birthday or business functions, it offers a breathtaking view of the city and a sumptuous menu that caters to small or big gatherings of up to 300 people.
The Sky Lounge is the converging area for all Sky Experience Adventurers, which also links to Tower 2 Club Ultima Business Center. At 19-storeys high, one can sit back and bask in the overwhelming view of the city.
INSANITY ORBIT(COMING SOON 2011)
Extending from the 40th floor of the Crown Regency Hotel & Towers is an inverted centrifuge that will spin passengers at up to three-G’s. Insanity Orbit is the 2nd ride of its kind in the world patterned after the famous Las Vegas’ Stratosphere, which pulls the riders out in Escape-proof seats to an angle of 70 degrees.
