A Must Try: The AVATAR ONE Roller Coaster Zip Line Now in PH

Kalongkong Hiker - Avatar One ZiplineThe first roller coaster zipline was first installed in Hidden Worlds Adventure Park in Tulum, Mexico  on April 2010 on the Yucatan Peninsula. They say that this is a terrific day out for the family that has always peddled in soft adventure experiences like gentle “sky-cycling” through the jungle and zip-lining into crystal-clear cenotes. See the clip below on how it works.


Here’s another video:

While here in the Philippines, Avatar One is now opened last April 12, 2014 to the public the first ever roller coaster zipline located at Sandbox in Porac Town, Pampanga. It is 180 meters long and 12 meters high.
