MegaZip Adventure Park - EastCoastLife Takes the Flight of Her Life! - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Male

My son Jaymes' platoon mates treated him to a day of fun at Sentosa Island on his birthday in October. He kept gushing about this MegaZip ride when he came home. He reminded me to take the ride when he heard that I was going to Sentosa Island for a day of fun.

Upon my arrival, I was given my wristband and introduced to Drew Graham, the Commercial Director of MegaZip Adventure Park. He personally secured the harnesses on both Chris and I and brought us for a tour round the park.

ParaJump - Are you ready to take the leap of faith?

The views are amazing at the Parajump leap point. You see the ocean, the jungle, the white sandy beaches from the top of the 15m tower before you step off a platform into thin air and land on the ground. I imagined Jaymes dropping 15m to the landing below like a boulder! hahaha.....

S$12 / Person

ClimbMax  The Ultimate Physical Challenge

ClimbMax is Singapore's premiere high rope's adventure course. 15 metre high Eucalyptus trees create a formidable course in the jungle hilltops of Sentosa. Families with young children would love this obstacle course.

S$24 / Person
Additional level available at S$15 / Person

Chris didn't want to take the MegaZip ride initially. I was laughing at him while he was clinging for dear life to a dangling rope 75m above ground level at the start of the ride.

But when it was my turn, fear and a wave of panic suddenly overwhelmed me. When I saw the height, my legs turned wobbly. My throat went dry. OMG! What did I get myself into? I had second thoughts and tried to quit but Drew and his staff assured me that it was safe and that it would be an exhilarating ride.

I was almost in tears dangling in the air at 75m above ground level. At the word "Go", I was screaming my lungs out as I zipped fast and furious down from the jungle canopy of Imbiah Hill to the white sands of Fox Finish Point at a heart pounding speed of 50km/h!

The first 5 seconds was scary but after that, I began to enjoy the descend, taking in the breathtaking views. My legs were still wobbly when I landed.... but I have high levels of adrenaline coursing through my body.

This is not a male thing. I have always tried to "face my fears". Once I've conquered MegaZip, I left my fear behind. I was raring to go for another round. I understood then why Jaymes went for 3 trips. :D

View from the top of MegaZip

The height to securely fit into one of the harnesses is 70 cm, and the maximum weight is 140 kg.

The minimum weight to travel as an individual is 30 kg. Adventurers who are less than 50 kg are recommended to travel in tandem (an arrangement of two persons placed one behind the other), as the heavier you are, the faster you go!

An individual MegaZip is S$29 per person.
The MegaZip remains open to ‘night flyers' from 7.30pm to 10pm.

First Commenter -


  1. This sounds interesting. I would admittedly have to face my fears. I shall consider this when my state of health improves.

  2. Looks like fun.... but kinda expensive leh esp when covenrt to RM. :D

    But I wanna try one time!

  3. Wow...quite expensive for a poor malaysian like me. :p Nonetheless I don't mind at all. Haha :D

  4. oceanskies,
    This is one awesome place where you can face your fears of heights. It truly requires courage to leap off from a tower 15m high and more when you are dangling 75m above ground level with only a rope supporting your weight.

    It isn't easy to take such steps but when you do, you will feel a sense of release.... whatever burdens you have seem to be lifted off your shoulders.

    I am ready to take the rides again. :D

    Wishing you good health and when you are ready to try this, call me to go with you, ok?

  5. Lina,
    It's very exhilarating. It's expensive but worth the price as the experience is out of this world.

    There is a discount for second ride. My son took 3 rides costing S$69.

    Must try once. :D

  6. Yes, it's exhilarating and adrenaline flowing, but I just could not bring myself to the top of the Parajump leap point and leap off into thin air. I believe my legs will turn to jelly the moment I step on top of the 15m tower. I am not ready for the flight of my life!

  7. It looks like fun but nothing for me, thanks!!! fun take on the theme, ECL.

  8. That looks like fun! Although I'm skeptical of my courage to even try it. HAHA.

  9. so much fun, i think even i could do it.

  10. We have an amusement park here about an hour drive. Nothing like Disney land or world. I believe it $30 to get in gate and that includes all the rides.
    The food and games are extra.

    Coffee is on.

  11. Sounds like you were close to getting the fright of your life there! :D

  12. sounds adventurous. i admire your guts ECL. happy weekend.

  13. That is a quite fun but dangerous. I did jump for life when i was in college. In the group of more than 200 i am the first female who tried to jump without any rope just hold tight to the rope with wood. The girl next to me almost died and fall to the ground. What an experience. But i enjoyed it. I tried that on top of the water and land.

  14. i love ziplines! I'd like to try Sentosa's zipline:)thanks for visiting my blog:)

  15. I don't know if I could do it, but I'd like to try looks like fun!

  16. You are brave ECL. Looks fun but scary. Happy weekend.

  17. I love zips and ziplines. I especially enjoyed Las Vegas's flight line, too. I don't think I'll be jumping off a perfectly good planes anytime soon.

  18. Oh my goodness you could never get me up there ! I would die of a heart attack ! I am getting dizzy when I have to jump from a chair, lol !

  19. Wow, it really does look like fun! Thanks for visiting mine and have a great weekend. :)

  20. ECL! my kind of adventure :) We did a zipline course several months back, from one mountain to the next and it was super fun. Definitely coming back when we visit Bohol again.

  21. Wow!, U r such a sport. I don't think I hv the courage to try it. I am afraid of heights.

  22. Bananaz would sure love to pump up the adrenaline level and go bananas with the MegaZip ride..modern tarzan swinging with harnesses instead of hanging on rope haha. tQ

  23. Congratulations! You faced your fears and won. I have never done this before. I bet the ride goes fast from one end to the other.

  24. wonderful place for adventure thrill seekers!!

  25. I have never seen this ride before ...... it looks wonderful, scary and something that you will keep as an experience forever!

    You certainly look as though you both enjoyed your day out. :)

  26. Thank you for coming down. I'm really glad you had so much fun. Your readers that found us a little expensive should have a look at our Family Combo package.
