SUNDAY'S BEST: Tagaytay Zipline

We had a short stop at the ridge after our lunch at Memory Lane since it's just few meters away Magallanes Drive. After enjoying the cold breeze, off we went to Picnic Grove to try Tagaytay Zipline! :)) 

This was my second zipline experience! The first one I got to try was Subic's zipline/Superman ride at Tree Top Adventure. The Superman ride in Subic is 100 feet above the ground and is 140 meters long. Tagaytay Zipline, on the other hand, is 300 feet off the ground which courses 250 meters long.

Harness used at Tagaytay Zipline is way way sturdier. The harness at Subic Zipline can only carry 1 person per harness. Tagaytay zipline's harness can carry 4 persons as big as sumo wrestlers! The whole body really feels nestled with its good hold. Makes sense, a deadlier ride entails steadier support. ;)  Also, the zipline mechanism in Subic seems machine-operated. But really, Superman ride in Tree Top Adventure made my knees shake more.... Imagine, we even had to climb few steps up a metal-pipe structure to stall ourselves in two bars! Yes, Superman ride's harness has two bars: one bar where you rest your feet and the bar in front of you to cling on to. :\ I wasn't even able to make the Superman position at Tree Top Adventure! My grip on the bar was too tight I can't let go (I was in 'I am cute' baby position, bar below my armpits), but, my arms were outstretched when I braced Tagaytay Zipline! <3
 Went at the ridge to see Taal, etc, etc... 
Finally! At Picnic Grove! On our way to try Tagaytay Zipline!

We decided to go two way and get the 100php souvenir photo... Forget the mug! 
The mug's nice, though. Didn't feel like getting one lang! hehe
 Swayed before letting us go!! Looked scary when we were watching others. In reality, it wasn't really that scary! ;) Mas ok nga eh, for me. :) The tire bump that made the zipline stop was the worse!!! We weren't expecting that! We laughed the shocking impact off na lang! :))
We tried two way... They'll ask you to transfer to another zipline point, lower point for your way back.
This is us in Superman position!!! <3
Haha! SO GAY, Lorenz! ;P
We, Argen and I, went first. Then, Lorenz and Ate Joy --shifting ba.. hehe -- since we were carrying bags... You can actually bring your bags with you. They'll place it on your back DAW inside a safe bag with lock. Guaranteed that your bags won't fall off! :) Felt like carrying bags on your back is bit of a hassle, though. Hence our scheme...
 Weeeee!!! <3 Ziplining off!!!
 Our photo!
You may visit www.tagaytayzipline.com three (3) days after your visit if you want a soft copy. :)

Brought two bags for the entire trip! Thanks to sturdy the leo bag for being able to carry so much!! <3 Yes to roomy bags!

I'd love to go on a cruise, LOL, to the crater of Taal Volcano on my next visit!!! <3
