Conquering the Xcelerator – the longest speed zip line in Asia

MINDANAO – A few weeks ago, my family and I celebrated our brother‘s birthday by trying the most talked about Xcelerator over at Outland Adventure, Davao City, Mindanao. The Outland Adventure Xcelerator is said to be the longest speed zip line in all of Asia! Cool, right?

We arrived at Outland Adventure Davao City half an hour before noon. As it turned out, we missed the “cut-off” time so we had to wait until they re-opened at roughly 1:30 pm. The more than an hour wait was all right — we just kept ourselves busy taking photos.

By 1:30 pm, all of the “zip liners” for the afternoon were asked to sign waivers. Then we proceeded to the area where we put on the harnesses, helmets and other safety gear. My brothers and I were made to choose if we wanted the “Superman” option or the ordinary glide option. Of course, all of us chose the “Superman” option! 😀

We then walked a few minutes towards the river (yup, nature tripping talaga!). We then crossed the river aboard a raft and then hiked for about 10 minutes. It was an uphill hike, by the way, so should you feel that it’s best to bring a bottle of water, do so! (Just don’t forget to dispose of the empty water bottle properly and not just leave it at the base point)

And yes, we did experience atmosFEAR — the entire adventure was worth every penny and definitely fun filled!
