A couple of weeks ago, I traveled with two bloggers friends to the Southern town of Badian to do one very special task: try the Badian Zipline Adventure in Sulsogan, Badian.
If you’ve been following this blog, you will know that I’ve already tried several zip line rides in the past. So what exactly makes this one unique and special? And why did we have to travel for four hours just to be able to give it a try? The answer is pretty simple: It is the longest zipline in Southern Cebu!
We met up at the Cebu South Bus Terminal at around 5 in the morning to catch a bus headed for Santander via the Barili route. The trip was long, but I stayed asleep the whole time so it didn’t matter. When I came to, we were ready to get off the bus somewhere in Malabago, Badian.
As soon as we stepped off the bus, we saw the roadside poster of Badian Zipline Adventure and we asked habal-habal drivers to take us there. For Php100 each, they agreed.
The Badian Zipline Adventure is located about 8 kilometers from the main road. That means you’re going to be on the motorbike for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Finally, after 15 minutes, we arrived at the Badian Zipline Adventure, located very close to the Sulsogan briefing station.
The Badian Zipline Adventure is currently offering a special deal for all adventure-seekers. Their promo rate requires guests to only pay Php450.00 per ride instead of the usual Php1,000.00.
The launching pad at Badian Zipline Adventure is quite new so you don’t have to worry about safety. It looks very stylish, too, don’t you think?
These two ladies at the reception at Badian Zipline Adventure are very caring and attentive. If you got questions, you can look for them and they will give you the answers you’re looking for right away.
The very first step to get on the zipline is to sign the waiver and pay the fee. After this, each guest is weighed to make sure that they are not too light or too heavy for the trip.
When they are ready, they head to the waiting area on the third floor and wait for their turn to ride.
We’re all smiling but we’re kind pretty nervous when this photo was taken. That’s Me, Beyee, and Carlo having a swell time watching the other guests shrieking their hearts out.
A foreign guest excitedly awaits his turn. Is he happy or scared?
Crew members make sure that all locks and ties are in place to ensure the safety of all guests.
This guy is obviously about to take off. And he is obviously very excited.
Now, it’s finally my turn. This is so thrilling!
Here’s the very magnificent view that you can enjoy right before the push. Pretty, right?
A minute later, I landed safely at the other end of the line. What an amazing ride! (Check out my video of the ride below!)
After getting off the ride, it was finally time to head back to the trail which was located some several meters above the platform.
