As our alarms go off in the morning for the sixth time, we are already fearing the monotonous day that lies ahead of us. We ask ourselves why not wake up in the morning eager and desiring to work? This feeling is like being trapped inside a cubicle. Then I realized, maybe we should get out of this cubicle and explore. Run towards different activities we thought we wouldn’t nor can’t do. This growing realization made me decide to join Tree Top Adventure Subic’s Bloggers Getaway last February 24-25.
Tree Top Adventure invited bloggers to experience the thrill by participating in their theme park’s extreme activities and to build team cooperation with their team building activities. This event was headed by TAG Media Public Relations, Engr. Grace Bondad Nicholas and sponsored by Tree Top Adventure, TAG Media, Azzurro Hotel, Pampanga and Sunrise Suprise Restaurant.

Signature Rides & Attractions
Tree Top Adventure Subic offers a variety of zipline adventure. We tried Superman Ride, Canopy Ride, and Silver Surfer Zipline, which happened to be my favorite. Here’s the list of rides and attractions that you can expect at their Subic Branch.
Travel through trees 100 feet above the ground using a network of five motorized cable rides, and see nature from an entirely new perspective.
Take off from a tower to a zip line adventure that can launch you into a superhero flight, face first (alone or with another rider) from an elevation 70 feet high.
Surf into the wind with a fellow rider, and glide from one treetop to another, while seeing an unmatched view of the forest wilderness.
It goes up and down in several cycles like a yo-yo from 6ft up to 100 ft high above the ground.
Tree Drop Adventure
Are you brave enough to experience the ultimate rappelling adventure down the side of a 60-foot tree? This is definitely the biggest Treetop free-fall thrill!
The Treetop Adventure experience aims to promote a greater appreciation of nature in its rugged beauty, and native ecosystems. Learn how to make a bonfire or drink from water vines while taking a tour of Subic’s remarkably diverse environment at the Treetop trekking trail.
We were to try Tree Drop however due to hungry tummies and tired bodies, we opted not to. I was shaking the whole time thinking if I could survive this activity because the activity is to let you fall from a 60-foot tree. I was scared my bones would crack or something bad might happen to me which was too much paranoia because we all know that Tree Top Adventure already performed security measures with all their attractions and rides. This was just me being crazy. LOL
