Have you guys ever heard of Skytrex adventures in Taman Pertanian Malaysia?!? Well....I am sure a lot of you have not because many of my friends usually ask me...."Huh? What's that?" And me..being a person horrible at describing things, usually communicate it the wrong way(e.g., you know..it's like obstacle courses in a jungle....,*then, I get weird looks*)So, without confusing people anymore, I have decided to take some pictures and post it up for you to see...for a clearer understanding of what it is!!!!
Look how colorful we were..so bright eyed and bushy tailed( we didn't know what we were getting ourselves into:p)
In the little bus that takes you from the entrance to skytrex, pretty scenic route on the way..
We got training on this site before heading out..we had to learned how to use the safety harnesses and clips...very safe....Even this mini "challenge" was scary for me already...
The guys...gearing up in their harnesses..
Our instructor who gave us crystal clear directions on how to use everything... Are you ready???? Now.... are some pictures of what these challenges entail.................
These were one of the challenges... you basically climb up a swinging ladder to get to a platform...and you are literally going through different challenges such as this one...BUT the catch is..you are doing it on top of trees.............3-4 storeys off the ground..... there are some where you swing from log to log to get to the other tree...feels like tarzan.....
This was the main ladder you climb up on to get to the top!!!! This was the hardest for me....It requires upper body strength which I lack*sob*..Halfway through..I wanted to go back down...but I realized I can't..so I calculated it would be easier if I continued up to the top...Thank God I did!!! Because it was such a great experience...:)
The guys goofing around after we completed the Big Thrill!!!!! Now..as you can see...they are pros at using harnesses....can probably go rock climbing too:P
Before I went, I basically did some research by asking around and checking out their website....To be honest, it was scarier than I thought..I was thinking "how hard can it be", but you are not just flying foxing from tree to tree but for some of the "challenges"(more like crazy obstacles to me...), you are swinging across planks to get to the other side!!! For those who are really scared halfway through..they have "chicken exits"...really funny!!! But please..if you truly afraid of height, re-think of going and........halfway through..IF you feel like you are going to have a heart attack, please just take the chicken exit...it's not a matter of being "shy" or "ego" or "saving face"..it is just NOT EASY!!! BUUUTTTT..if you do complete it...the feeling of completion and satisfaction is amazing!!!!! Who is up for the extreeemme challenge with me???!!??
