Adrenaline Rush

What is Adrenaline Rush?
They said it is a state whereby your body produces some chemical in moment of fear or excitement..
and this chemical (read:adrenaline rush) can make you do things that is beyond normal. ex: running faster than normal or being braver than ever.

I love to raise up my adrenaline every now and then.. *in a responsible way of course*
I love to ride roller coaster, or went in to haunted house, or as simple as talking to some handsome guy across the street. hahaha.. *okay. the last one is a joke*

I do think it is important to pump up your adrenaline, because it just makes you feel ALIVE.

It's the time whereby most of the oxygen travels to your brain, and somehow you feel freshened and lively all of a sudden.

Last week.. Me, Bern and 9 of our friends went to Sentosa to raise up some adrenaline.. haha.
*yeah, i know.. sentosa lagi.. sentosa lagi.. baru juga pergi di minggu sebelumnya.. hehe*

So, in the other part of Sentosa Island.. there's something like an outbound park called Megazip Adventure Park. 
If you are taking the monorail from Vivocity, you should stop in Imbiah Station and just follow the way up, take the escalators, pass through the jungle..  hike a little bit more.. and voila! you'll reach the adventure park. *yess.. this place is freakin far from the monorail.. but distance means so little when you walk with your loved ones! so, please do not walk alone. haha.. gombal.com dehhh..*

 the jungle selfie

the hiking selfie

They have 4 challenging activities that you can choose,
- Climbmax : it's like a normal outbound, but i think it's very hard.. whereby there's huge trees, ropes, some wood-logs,  and they made 24 obstacles out of it..
- Northface : basically its a rock climbing
- Parajump : freefall from about 4 storey tall. They said it simulate parachute landing
- Megazip : flying fox

they have their own pricing for individual activities,
but you can mix and match activities if you want too.
so, to make things easier.. they have made the pricing table for you.


so, some of us took the Kangaroo package and some others took Chimpanzee package.

right after we purchased our ticket,
we need to sit down to be briefed by their crew.
you are not allowed to bring backpack or totebags.. only small sling bag allowed.
and all valuables will be put aside in one bag which you can bring along with you later on.


okay, the first thing to do was weight yourself ! haha
i know.. its very embarrassing for some of the girls. but it's for safety reasons.. so, you cannot skip this out.

after they weighed our weight.
we proceed to the 'Buckle up' ground *actually i dont know what to call that place.. haha*
so, in this place, they will put the safety harness around you..
they have 2-3 types of safety harness according to your weight. most of the girls normally will get the yellow colored ones.


okayy.. now, we are ready to hit the park !



First 'Adrenaline' stop was the Parajump - the 'free fall' from 4th storeys *well.. the poster said we gonna jump from the 5th storey, but idk it's that high.. so 4th storey it is. hehe*

we already did 'eenie meenie mainey moo' aka cap-cip-cup in bahasa..
and Cindy is very first one to jump, followed by others, me in the second last, and Manda for our lucky last.

before you jump, they will ask you to turn your back and attached a ballast *pemberat* to your back.
The ballast holds a bit of your gravity, so we will turn into pieces after we jumped down.


if you see from below pictures, maybe it doesnt seems so high.

the dangling wooden block with all the ropes are the Climbmax - which we did not take

Buttt.. Let me tell you the feeling when you are on the tip of the ledge.
the feeling was much complicated than the nano nano sweets *i think only indonesian understand this. huahua*
my heart beats faster, my hands turn cold, i cannot breath properly.. i can feel all the symptoms of the adrenaline rush.

i want to show you the video that Cindy took for me.
but the video goes upside down, and i dont know how to rotate a video.. haha
please see at my Instagram @jendluvu if you would like to see.

again.. it seems slow..
but it really takes tons of courage to step out from the ledge.
*rasanya pas mau lompat itu.. aduhh.. pengen lngsung pipis gt. hahaha*

but we all made it.. hehe..
and we all agreed that the scariest part was when we step our leg out from the ledge.
the rest of the process is just normal. haha..
*many experience falling after they touches the ground.. because they still cant balance themselves.. well.. including me. hahaha*

Secondly is the Northface aka Rock Climbing  for the Chimpanzee team.

But first, let me take a selfie! *chainsmokers effect*

 The Chimpanzee Team

The Kangaroo Team

The Chimpanzee team waited for quite awhile, because the rock climbing can only accommodate 3 players.
You can try to climb for 20 mins.. if you still cannot reach the top to ring the bell, then the guards will stop you and let the others to take the their turn.
got this 2 taiwan couple tried to climb up for the umpteenth times.. but they cant even pass the red lines.
i think their hands are too tired already..

and finally, it's Bern's time to climb..
the guard will ask you to climb a bit and go down again, only to test ropes that will bring you down.



and you know what??
Bern succeeded to reach the top and rang the bell..!! woohoo.. *proud girlfriend* muahahahha,, *lebay.com*


he said he unlocked one of his life achievements. hahaha.. *sama lebay.nya* hahaha.

anyway.. Dedi was very funny. he stuck in the middle with this position. haahha. *im sorry dedi*

and finally, our last game of the day..

The Megazip aka flying fox.
This flying fox is 450 meters long and 72 meters above the sea level.
too bad i dont have any Go-Pro camera to record a video.. =((

i only have below pictures for you to see..
yes.. we are sliding from one Island to another Island!! 

Me and Niko getting started

compared to Parajump, this one is scarier, because they will hang you first and nothing to seat in. after that, they will just released you all of a sudden, and your body can just turn back and front anytime.

i faced the front side at first, but halfway down the road i turned around and facing the canopy jungle.

but i love this ride the most.. because you can feel the adrenaline rush longer and whiz and breeze over the canopy jungle and siloso beach.

oh ya.. you can do tandem as well if you like.. or if you are a little bit afraid to go alone..
but i think they have maximum weight to go..

another funny thing also happened here..
2 of my friends (lets say C &D).. they went tandem for this rides, because one of them afraid to go alone.
then suddenly.. they stucked at the middle! hahaha..
they are fine.. no injuries.. no faulties.. we assume they are just a little bit too heavy. haha.
so the guard came along and pull them to the other side of the island.
so, my suggestion is.. just go solo and enjoy the ride yourself.. haha..

overall it was a very very great experience.
I recommend you to go at least once in your lifetime, and just feel the adrenaline rush that travels within your body..

this makes me wants to go for skydive or bungee jump..
but i dont know if my heart can take it or not. haha..
My last memorable 'feeling' was X2 roller coaster in LA's six flags : magic mountain. *it was the craziest roller coaster that i have ever ride*
and i think those skydive and bungee jump is a new whole level of raising up your adrenaline. haha..
*ngebayanginnya aja udah super deg2an*

so, please do share with me if you have did those crazy things before.. i would love to hear your magnificent stories.. hehe..
