Caliraya has all that you could be searching for in an exciting, fun-filled day trip. They have zip lines, skybikes, divider climbing walls, rappelling, kayaks, zorb balls and the sky is the limit from there. In any case, what they have that others don’t is a Super Slide! It’s a 550-foot kid-accommodating water slide that keeps running along the ground. You can begin little with their Slip N’ Slide as well.
Grown-ups searching for a greater amount of an adrenaline surge can attempt the Slide and Fly which is precisely what it sounds like. The energy from going down the enormous slide and the skyward slope toward the end will make them take off through the air! At the point when all your vitality’s depleted away, consider going enjoying a horseback riding adventure or just unwinding around a blaze.
