This was so much fun! Felt like a kid again (and that's a LOT of years turned back).
I must commend all the instructors. Safety always came first, but they managed to inject a lot of humor in the entire activity, especially the belayer whose name is Chris, I think. He tells you what to do while you're swinging. Jade was very patient in teaching us the tricks and supportive of us in our attempts to execute them. Also the 2 guys up on the platform who help strap you up have equally hilarious conversations that help you momentarily forget that you're going to really have to jump off the ledge.
I'll have to confess that this was not an easy thing for me to do, considering I have fear of heights (I was practically crawling my way at the Tower of Macau). But my niece had been bugging me for months and I finally relented. Nothing like flirting with death to make one feel so alive. Well, this wasn't really dangerous since you're strapped from the moment you climb that ladder until you free fall into the net.
We learned a few tricks. The photo is me attempting to dismount from a split. The last trick we did was a catch by Roy a.k.a. Tarzan. He's a really nice and STRONG guy, especially since he managed to catch me.
Made a few friends along the way. You can't really help but be bonded with your classmates since you all have jello legs after the first round. Soon enough we were doing high-fives and taking videos of each other.
We went at 10 am today and it started to get really warm by 11 am. Next time we'll try this at night. Also, the nearest parking is 2 blocks away. You can't really park at the street because your car might get towed which can be distracting if you're about to start your swing. Still it's 5 stars for them! Loved it!

If you've ever wanted to run away and join the circus or fly through the air like the Flying Graysons (i.e. Dick Grayson a.k.a Robin), this place is the the closest you can get to that experience!
The hardest part is really just taking that first leap off the platform since you become conscious of how high you are and you have your feet on the edge of a narrow platform. Once you've taken the leap though, the rush is liberating! I even got to swing upside down!
The people in charge are really helpful and friendly too. They make sure everyone's safe, and throw in some entertainment along the way.
I was lucky enough to be able to try it out for free as part of a San Marino event, but I only really got to swing once since we had to get ready to perform ourselves. I will definitely find time to come back though, as it's been one of the most exciting things I've done recently (plus nabitin ako... Pun intended )
Definitely something people should try at least once.
