Treetop Adventure at Subic Bay

I'm not a person who loves adventure, my decision to take some rides at Treetop adventure at Subic happened as a result of my son's endless convincing.  Another thing is that I have a fear of heights, I really couldn't stand it when I'm on a very high place then I would suddenly look down, I feel like I'm dying out of great fear.  My son never stopped until I said yes to him.  I said on one condition, I would only try the canopy ride and jungle trekking, Superman Ride for me is a big NO!  At last, he agreed.  So, there we are together with his other 2 friends.

We first had the jungle trekking with a bit of jungle survival training like "making a fire" out of bamboo, cooking rice and creating your own kitchen utensils using bamboos and other materials you could find inside the jungle.  This is not actually new to me as I have remembered to have attended similar activity before in the JEST Camp.  We were 5 in our group plus two other visitors.  We were accompanied by an Aeta staff whom we fondly call "Pickle", that's his nickname and it's so unique.:)
Pickle is one of the staff at Treetop Adventure who is tasked to guide the visitors who will go for jungle trekking.  It was fun because Pickle was so entertaining.  We had a great laugh listening to him and watching him as he demonstrate the important uses of bamboos.

Aside from the great fun we had listening to him, the jungle trekking itself didn't satisfy me.  The walk was too short and not that exciting.  Should had not been for the fact that Pickle was very entertaining, perhaps we all got bored with this activity.

After that, we had the "canopy ride" which is good.  Not so scary, just good for the not so adventurous people like me.  The "Superman ride" was okay as per my daughter which they all enjoyed.  This ride is not for me, so I just waited for them to finish on a nearby shed.

Overall, we had a great time, only that I had a headache afterwards due to extreme heat at that time. We spent just about two hours at Treetop Adventure as each ride is not really that long.

For those who love to have an adrenalin rush, perhaps going to Treetop Adventure is a good way to experience something fun and exciting.  This is another kind of entertainment that you will surely love.  As a matter of fact, I've heard that Kim Chiu and Xian Lim are regular visitors at Treetop Adventure Subic.
