HOBO CODES | Circus-like Sky Rides at Eden Adventure Park Davao

Eden is also now an adventure seeker’s natural playground.

Life’s unicycle where we simultaneously juggle work, personal affairs and sanity, causes us to faint sometimes. If you happen to be in that part of your routine where you are losing balance, startle more that adventurous soul and try daring your circus skills. Get out from the unicycle for a while and treat yourself to face-warping rides.

CIRCUS SKILLS: Physical comedy (face), contortion (left leg) and flying trapeze (the Skyswing!). My first Skywing, July 2018. *I am comparing my extreme sky experience to several circus acts to let the readers feel more how every ride feels. This does not necessarily mean that you have to try these like a circus performer. Dangle safely.

How about teasing your circus skills of balance, agility, motor coordination as well as showmanship and physical comedy? Yes, you can not control those funny facial grimaces from the extreme stimuli when suspended at a 60 feet high cable, from a tower in an elevation 3,000 feet above sea level. All these in a day at one of the most popular and most visited mountain resorts in the Philippines today!

The moment you enter the Eden Adventure Park, the topography and the horizon you behold add to the thrill, where the sky rides are seem theatrically arranged. It is like a natural amphitheater where the towers of the rides are constructed at the lower part of the property. When someone is trying any of the extreme sky rides, a majestic horizon is on the backdrop while the spectators from the higher part of the park watch the rider at eye level.

SKYSWING: It is like flying trapeze, only with harness because you are not a pro.

8B9A1760-3D60-4D9B-9352-39047B11B179
A first of its kind in the Davao Region, opened in 2015. Which would you try, 45 or 90 degree swing? Solo or with a swing mate? Screaaaaaam! Second Skyswing, May 2019.

“After Eco-tourism and Agri-tourism, a third leg – what we call as Adventure Tourism – was added to the resort’s activities. This was to make Eden also cater to the younger and more adventurous generation.” -Brenda Ocampo, Director of Sales and Marketing

SKYCYCLE : Artistic cycling and Slackwire balancing acts combined!

95B97250-B6C3-4BF8-B750-8B6359B3CC69
The only of its kind in Davao where riders pedal the bike to cross the 200 meter cable.

372FF354-2B00-4168-9925-EF80572678B7

With 6 more lines from 2 when it opened in 2013, this ride is obviously a hit where artistic cycling and slackwire balancing skills are combined.

SKYRIDER: An aerial straps act without the acrobatics.

D386FA07-97B6-497B-9EE1-89EE3C1F1DE3
Eden’s  version of Zipline. Opened in 2008 which lets you feel how to perform in an aerial silk or straps.

Since it started operations in October 1997, Eden has evolved from a simple nature park to a Davao destination offering a spectrum of relaxing things to do to heart pumping rides to overcome. It is definitely not just a nature lover’s paradise but also now an adventure seeker’s natural playground or contextually, an aspiring circus performer’s safely harnessed theater. Dangle safely before going back to life’s unicycle!  

I am comparing my extreme sky experience to several circus acts to let the readers feel more how every ride feels. This does not necessarily mean that you have to try these like a circus performer. Dangle safely.
