Zipline in Cebu and around the Philippines

There has been much hullabaloo about the hostage crisis, I wasn't around to see the live stream, so it might not have struck me as much as it did to others, I was off to some place more peaceful. Nevertheless, it was shameful and it definitely put a slump on Philippines' tourism.

Anyway, what's up Philippines? Aside from the soaring index of the stock market (I have yet to sell my stocks, is it time?) I'm getting feeds from facebook and here on google, about the ziplines hanging up around the Philippines. Is this a craze? If it is, I am so out! I haven't tried one in my entire life, and that's so sad. My cousins are coming over two weeks from now and they are bugging me to go on one, why not!?

Here in Cebu, there are a few already:

  • Davao City: Outland Adventure
  • Davao City: Camp Sabros - 380m, 400 and 820m

Take me high up and fast around the Philippines. Your feedback on any of these (and other) facilities would be greatly appreciated.
