As you go up in the lift to Floor 39, you begin to wonder if this is a good idea, still trying to convince yourself, you pay (600 Pesos?). After a few minutes you are sent to the safety area where you climb into a jumpsuit and are given a helmet (not sure how much protection this will give you if you are hurtling 40 floors below).
Move up one more floor where you are past the point of no return. After an eternity, you sit in a place, nature doesn't intend, unless you have feathers, and a friendly chap smiles and talks about anything as he shoves you off the side of a building, 473ft from the ground.
The view, as you fly across from Tower 1 to Tower 3 are spectacular (apparently. It depends if your eyes are open or not). I did look down, but wish I hadn't.
At the other end (250ft away), just when you thought it was all over, you are connected to a new wire, which brings you back again, uphill, automatically......but much more slowly, so you 'enjoy' the full agonising experience in slo-mo.
Joking aside, great fun.
Crown Regency hotel offers a lot of adventures like zipline, skywalk, etc. Me and my friends tried the skywalk where we have to wear a jumpsuit, place the safety belts and go and walk around the hotel. What's special with this is that you get to see the beautiful Cebu City from the top!
I never like heights but I enjoyed this awesome experience.
If you want to experience the thrill of being hanged on the 41st floor of the tallest building in Cebu, I suggest you stopped by the Crowne Regency Hotel for the Sky Experience Adventure. This was our last stop in Cebu and the very reason why we took the trip.
Being a thrill junkie, my friend and I specifically took the Edge Coaster ride. It looks like a roller coaster but you only get to ride around the rim of the building on the 41st floor. What makes it special and exciting is the fact that the seat can be tilted forward up to 90 degrees making you feel like you're about to drop out of your seat.
I suggest you take the ride in the evening like we did because there's no line, plus, you can marvel at the sight of Cebu's skyline. However, we only get to marvel in between our shrill over the ride. It's kinda hard to appreciate the scenery when you're screaming your head off hahaha!
Aptly called Sky Experience Adventure, if you truly want to challenge your non-fear of heights then this is one of the things you have to do in Cebu. Located on top of Tower 1 of the Crown Regency Hotel in Cebu, the Sky Experience Adventure offers different activities where each activity is definitely for a thrill-seeker.
Conquer your fear of heights… and count me in!
Another way to spend your time in Cebu is to have an extreme adventure!
Get ready for an awesome experience in the 37th floor of the Crown Regency Cebu, for the Sky Walk Extreme! This fun thrilling action will let you walk around the edge of the building, having 360 degrees view in the city.
My friends & I had this adventure on a very, very windy day! Gosh! Honestly, I don’t know how I survived this thing because I’m really an acrophobic! Yikes!
We were asked to wear an orange jumpsuit and white sneakers before stepping out in the platform. There are also guides that walked us through the edge of the building aside from the harness as support ofcourse. I briefed myself not to look down because it may just take away the little courage I have left… but I can’t help it!!!! Many times I looked down thinking that I can overcome the fear of heights… Fortunately, nothing bad happened to me after that.. but still my fear of heights is still present until now.
If the skywalk adventure didn’t satisfy your adrenalin rush, try the Edge Coaster; located on the 38th floor of the Crown Regency Hotel. It is situated at the edge of the building and tilts at 55 degrees!!! It’ gives you the feeling of like falling into your seat but it’s not.
Entrance fee: 700Php but we had a promo to pay half of its price (back in the days)
Monday - Friday (Open from 2pm till 12mn)
Saturday - (Open from 10am till 2am)
Sunday - (Open from 10am till 2mn)
do not miss this sky ride it is once in a life time expierience entrance is only 400 pesos with free meal on it. You have a choice if you want sky ride or sky walk. Normally in skywalk the line is so long but in skyride no line at all maybe because handful are brave to try it.
