Sentosa : Adventure Cove Waterpark

Minggu lalu, gw sama beberapa temen gw pergi ke Adventure Cove Waterpark yg ada di Resort World Sentosa..

Sentosa lg happening bngt sekarang buat turis2..

Bermula dari Casino, Universal Studio, S.E.A Aquarium ( yg katanya world’s largest aquarium *bukan luas tempat.nya loh yaa* ) sampe ada si Adventure Cove Waterpark ini.

Sebenernya si Adventure Cove ini kyk waterboom gt.. disana cuman main air aja.. ga ada kolam yg bener2 buat berenang.. harga masuk.nya ituh SGD 36.

 

pertama kali kita masuk.. voto2 dulu dong yahh.. hehe..

 

 

nah.. abis masuk ke waterpark ini.. udah bnyk loker buat taro belongings kita..

system.nya pake komputer gt.. whereby nanti systemnya yg pilihin loker kita dimana..

trus system.nya minta duid dulu sebelum dia tunjukin loker.nya.

dan ternyata mahal juga lohh.. harus bayar SGD 20 buat bayar loker.nya.. *faint.. daylight robbery*

 untung loker.nya lumayan gede, jadi kita pesen 1 loker aja buat taro tas kiat ber6..

tapi kita ga tau apakah si loker ini bisa di buka tutup, atau cuman bs di buka sekali dan di tutup sekali.. haha..

 yaudah deh.. abis semua ganti baju, pake sunblock dan taro barang di loker.

cabuts lah kita untuk bermain air.. hehe..

 

1. Adventure River a.k.a Kolam Arus

Ini kolam biasa yg semua waterboom punya kali yahh. di ancol juga ada yg kyk gini. ahhaha

Karena namanya Kolam Arus, yah kita cuman bisa jalan 1 arah ikutin arus air.nya..

kita bodoh2an juga sihh, cobain buat jalan balik.. tapi yahh paling cuman bisa 2-3 step.. trus yah kbawa arus lagi. hahaha.

Tapi ada yg sedikit beda dari kolam arus yg biasa.nya.. Pertama, lantai.nya beda2.

jadi, ada yg lantai.nya biasa, terus ada yg lantai.nya dari kaca.. jadi lebih licin gt..

nah.. ini seru bngt nih kalo mau bodoh2an jalan lawan arus pas di lantai kaca. haha.

Kedua, mrk ada bbrp tema gt, ada yg forest2, ada yg bentuk.nya kyk tunnel (jadi bisa liat ikan di atas kita), ada yg kyk cave2 gt..

Ketiga, mrk taro aquarium full of stingray di samping kolam arus.nya..

jadi sambil main air, kita bs berenti dan liat2 stingray dr berbagai jenis dan ukuran.. dan bisa liatin mrk kubur diri mrk di pasir..*ga tau juga buat apa dia kubur diri dia.. haha.. kyknya sih buat perlindungan diri gt yahh.. hehe*

 

2. Rainbow-Reef 

Jadi ini kolam guede bngt.. dalem.nya kurang lebih 4-5 meter.. di isi sama terumbu karang dan katanya ada kurang lebih 20.000 ikan di dalem.

jadi ini kolam buat kita snorkeling !

seru lohh.. hehe..

buat kalian yg takut snorkel di lautan.. kalian bisa coba2 dulu dsini. haha.

antri.nya agak lama buat yg ini,

soalnya.. dia ajarin orng2.nya dl gt gmn cara pake alat snorkle.nya and some safety tips..

 pas di kasih alat snorkle.nya, gw agak geli gt.. kan bekas di pake ga tau berapa juta umat kann..

jadi gw tanya si abang.nya.

 

Me : do you clean this all the time ?

Him : Yes ma’am.. not to worries, with disinfectant and *apaa gt lupa* for every use.

 

yaudahlah yah, lega dikit.. walopun gw juga ga tau gimana cara dia cuci.nya. haha..

kalo di tanya bagus apa nggak sih, jawaban gw lumayand bagus. haha..

well. jngn bandingin sama open sea yah.. itu udah beda..

ini kan buatan gt soalnya..

lumayand bagus dan lumayan niat  bngt si buat.nya..

terus dia bnyk taro lifeguard gt di pinggir2.nya.. buat jaga2 klo ada yg lose their breath.

sayang bngt gw ga ada camera underwater.. =(

*keep wanting to have 1.. but the good one is freaking expensive.. so yeah.. if anyone of you knows a good underwater camera with a good value, please kindly let me know.. hehe*

 

3.Riptide Rocket

This is the ‘must ride’ slides.

ini slides yang paling beda dari biasa.nyaa.. kenapa??

karena.. ini slides roller coaster..

yes… roller coaster on water.. can you imagine?? hahaha..

seru bngt.. jadi dia tetep pake float (ban yg bisa di dudukin 2 orang ) gt..

yg lebih berat harus duduk di depan.. *ga tau kenapa*

abis semua duduk. nanti dia tarik float kita ke atas.. gw pikir mah biasa aja..

paling di tarik sampe atas terus di release doang..

ternyata nggak.. abis di release kyk prosotan biasa..

ehh.. tau2.nyaa dia bisa naik lagii..

gila dehh.. seru abiss..

ternyata dia pake technology yg namanya ‘hydro-magnetic’ gt..

gw juga terheran2.. gimana caranya dia bisa bikin kyk gt..

sumpahh.. this is the must try slide if you are visiting adventure cove. hehe..

this rides can really raise your adrenaline. haha..

 

4. Spiral Washout

 

*picture taken from rwsentosa.com*

Ini slides biasa sihh.. tapi ada sensasi seru.nya aja gt.. kyk lu masuk ke dalam corong.. hahaha.

5. Whirpool Washout

*picture taken from rwsentosa.com*

Ini slides beda tipis sama si spiral washout..

tapi antri.nya lebih pendek dari si spiral..

menurut gw sihh, ini lebih seru dr pada yg si spiral..

soalnya.. once lu turun.. nanti di tengah2.. float lu bisa muter sendiri gt..

jadi dari yg posisinya mengahadap depann.. tiba2 bisa puter balik..

jadi naik slides.nya terbalik gt. hahahaha.. *funny horror felling when it turned around*

Ada beberapa kolam lagi, kyk kolam ombak, kolam anak2, dan kolam adventure (dimana lu bisa manjat2 pake tali, dan lompat2an dsana).. terus ada beberapa slides lagi..

tapi menurut gw yg paling menarik adalah 5 ini.. hehehe.

oh iyaa.. mereka buka dari jam 10 pagi – 6 sore..

jangan pulang terlalu sore..

soalnya kamar mandi.nya bakalan penuh bngt.. and you have to queue to bath..

ga enak kan beridiri dingin2 di toilet untuk nunggu giliran mandi. haha..

yahh.. segitu aja deh crita gw kali ini. hehe..

*tee.hee*

*picture kali ini dari gw pake filter instagram. hahaha.. nice yaa.. ini gw ktmu pas abis mandi dan mau jalan pulang.. hehe..*

 

Sentosa – Megazip Adventure Park

What is Adrenaline Rush?

They said it is a state whereby your body produces some chemical in moment of fear or excitement..

and this chemical (read:adrenaline rush) can make you do things that is beyond normal. ex: running faster than normal or being braver than ever.

 I love to raise up my adrenaline every now and then.. *in a responsible way of course*

I love to ride roller coaster, or went in to haunted house, or as simple as talking to some handsome guy across the street. hahaha.. *okay. the last one is a joke*

 I do think it is important to pump up your adrenaline, because it just makes you feel ALIVE.

 It’s the time whereby most of the oxygen travels to your brain, and somehow you feel freshened and lively all of a sudden.

 Last week.. Me, Bern and 9 of our friends went to Sentosa to raise up some adrenaline.. haha.

*yeah, i know.. sentosa lagi.. sentosa lagi.. baru juga pergi di minggu sebelumnya.. hehe*

 So, in the other part of Sentosa Island.. there’s something like an outbound park called Megazip Adventure Park. 

If you are taking the monorail from Vivocity, you should stop in Imbiah Station and just follow the way up, take the escalators, pass through the jungle..  hike a little bit more.. and voila! you’ll reach the adventure park. *yess.. this place is freakin far from the monorail.. but distance means so little when you walk with your loved ones! so, please do not walk alone. haha.. gombal.com dehhh..*

 

 the jungle selfie

the hiking selfie

 They have 4 challenging activities that you can choose,

– Climbmax : it’s like a normal outbound, but i think it’s very hard.. whereby there’s huge trees, ropes, some wood-logs,  and they made 24 obstacles out of it..

– Northface : basically its a rock climbing

– Parajump : freefall from about 4 storey tall. They said it simulate parachute landing

– Megazip : flying fox

They have their own pricing for individual activities,

but you can mix and match activities if you want too.

so, to make things easier.. they have made the pricing table for you.

so, some of us took the Kangaroo package and some others took Chimpanzee package.

right after we purchased our ticket,

we need to sit down to be briefed by their crew.

you are not allowed to bring backpack or totebags.. only small sling bag allowed.

and all valuables will be put aside in one bag which you can bring along with you later on.

 okay, the first thing to do was weight yourself ! haha

i know.. its very embarrassing for some of the girls. but it’s for safety reasons.. so, you cannot skip this out.

 after they weighed our weight.

we proceed to the ‘Buckle up’ ground *actually i dont know what to call that place.. haha*

so, in this place, they will put the safety harness around you..

they have 2-3 types of safety harness according to your weight. most of the girls normally will get the yellow colored ones.

 okayy.. now, we are ready to hit the park !

 

First ‘Adrenaline’ stop was the Parajump – the ‘free fall’ from 4th storeys *well.. the poster said we gonna jump from the 5th storey, but idk it’s that high.. so 4th storey it is. hehe*

we already did ‘eenie meenie mainey moo’ aka cap-cip-cup in bahasa..

and Cindy is very first one to jump, followed by others, me in the second last, and Manda for our lucky last.

 before you jump, they will ask you to turn your back and attached a ballast *pemberat* to your back.

The ballast holds a bit of your gravity, so we will turn into pieces after we jumped down.

 if you see from below pictures, maybe it doesnt seems so high.

the dangling wooden block with all the ropes are the Climbmax – which we did not take

Buttt.. Let me tell you the feeling when you are on the tip of the ledge.

the feeling was much complicated than the nano nano sweets *i think only indonesian understand this. huahua*

my heart beats faster, my hands turn cold, i cannot breath properly.. i can feel all the symptoms of the adrenaline rush.

i want to show you the video that Cindy took for me.

but the video goes upside down, and i dont know how to rotate a video.. haha

please see at my Instagram @jendluvu if you would like to see.

again.. it seems slow..

but it really takes tons of courage to step out from the ledge.

*rasanya pas mau lompat itu.. aduhh.. pengen lngsung pipis gt. hahaha*

 

but we all made it.. hehe..

and we all agreed that the scariest part was when we step our leg out from the ledge.

the rest of the process is just normal. haha..

*many experience falling after they touches the ground.. because they still cant balance themselves.. well.. including me. hahaha*

 

Secondly is the Northface aka Rock Climbing  for the Chimpanzee team.

 But first, let me take a selfie! *chainsmokers effect*

 The Chimpanzee Team

The Kangaroo Team

The Chimpanzee team waited for quite awhile, because the rock climbing can only accommodate 3 players.

You can try to climb for 20 mins.. if you still cannot reach the top to ring the bell, then the guards will stop you and let the others to take the their turn.

got this 2 taiwan couple tried to climb up for the umpteenth times.. but they cant even pass the red lines.

i think their hands are too tired already..

 and finally, it’s Bern’s time to climb..

the guard will ask you to climb a bit and go down again, only to test ropes that will bring you down.

 

and you know what??

Bern succeeded to reach the top and rang the bell..!! woohoo.. *proud girlfriend* muahahahha,, *lebay.com*

 he said he unlocked one of his life achievements. hahaha.. *sama lebay.nya* hahaha.

 anyway.. Dedi was very funny. he stuck in the middle with this position. haahha. *im sorry dedi*

 and finally, our last game of the day..

 The Megazip aka flying fox.

This flying fox is 450 meters long and 72 meters above the sea level.

too bad i dont have any Go-Pro camera to record a video.. =((

i only have below pictures for you to see..

yes.. we are sliding from one Island to another Island!!

Me and Niko getting started

compared to Parajump, this one is scarier, because they will hang you first and nothing to seat in. after that, they will just released you all of a sudden, and your body can just turn back and front anytime.

i faced the front side at first, but halfway down the road i turned around and facing the canopy jungle.

but i love this ride the most.. because you can feel the adrenaline rush longer and whiz and breeze over the canopy jungle and siloso beach.

oh ya.. you can do tandem as well if you like.. or if you are a little bit afraid to go alone..

but i think they have maximum weight to go..

another funny thing also happened here..

2 of my friends (lets say C &D).. they went tandem for this rides, because one of them afraid to go alone.

then suddenly.. they stucked at the middle! hahaha..

they are fine.. no injuries.. no faulties.. we assume they are just a little bit too heavy. haha.

so the guard came along and pull them to the other side of the island.

so, my suggestion is.. just go solo and enjoy the ride yourself.. haha..

 

overall it was a very very great experience.

I recommend you to go at least once in your lifetime, and just feel the adrenaline rush that travels within your body..

this makes me wants to go for skydive or bungee jump..

but i dont know if my heart can take it or not. haha..

My last memorable ‘feeling’ was X2 roller coaster in LA’s six flags : magic mountain. *it was the craziest roller coaster that i have ever ride*

and i think those skydive and bungee jump is a new whole level of raising up your adrenaline. haha..

*ngebayanginnya aja udah super deg2an*

so, please do share with me if you have did those crazy things before.. i would love to hear your magnificent stories.. hehe..
