Mindanao is definitely on a roll these days! It’s fast becoming the host of so many tourist attractions and exhilarating, unique and uber fun extreme sports and adventures! First there was the Xcelerator, dubbed Asia’s longest speed zipline, then there was the Davao City Deca Wakeboard Park, which opened last August 28, 2009, and now, Mindanao will be the location of what’s to be the longest dual cable zipline in Asia!
ZIPZONE Extreme Zip Line Adventure Philippines will soon be open for business. Located at the verdant Dahilayan Adventure Park in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon (an hour’s drive away from nearby Cagayan de Oro City, Northern Mindanao), Asia’s longest Dual Cable Zipline is currently on a test run.
Fast facts about this zipline adventure in Northern Mindanao:
– Dual Carrying cables each 840 meters long point to point
– Safety cable also 840 meters long
– Total length of cables: 2,460 meters
– Elevation drop: 100meters
– Estimated speed: 60-100KPH
– Launch point Location at 4000 ft ASL
Sounds like major fun!!!
I found this video about the Zipzone test run in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon:
Zipzone is owned by Elpidio Paras, the same Mindanaoan who owns Paras Beach Resort, PARASAT Cable TV and a host of other businesses.
I’m really very excited to try this out very soon! I’ve already conquered the Xcelerator. Next up: Zipzone!
GO MINDANAO! 😀
