Inflatable Island is considered as the biggest inflatable park in Asia. In fact, this playground can fit 8 basketball courts combined! Seeing all these inflatables right before our eyes had all of us unleashed our kid at heart spirits. Certainly one of a must-go-to place not just for kids but for all ages to have fun. It is located in Olangapo City, just 2.5-hr drive from Manila.
The park has 16 distinct stations. And even though we tried to budget our time with the 2-hr package we bought, we were only able to try two of their main stations. One of which was the Giant Tarzan Swing. It looked easy from the picture but once you are up there, you’ll definitely feel the anxiety. Don’t forget to hold a tight grip and let go once you feel that you are about to shoot through the sky. Momentum is a big factor in this station. Another tip, do not jump from the platform. Just let your body weight swing you to the sea! It is because a common mistake people do in this station is that they jump from the station; making their momentum going down instead of going forward. Doing this will surely give you a hard time in gripping those ropes.
Another main station is the BFB (Big Freaking Blob) that works in pairs. One person jumps from a higher ground onto the blob while another one excitedly awaits on top of the blob to be launched up 20ft in the air. This was a great finale to end our activity. We could have wanted another one but unfortunately our time was way over.
Below is the top view of BFB. Notice the guy as he jumps to hurl his friend into the sky.
You can also chill and rest in their Bali Lounge. Be sure to secure a spot beforehand as it gets really crowded in this definitely instagram-worthy location!
This is definitely a place we recommend for friends and family for all ages.
Surely, 2-hr package is never enough especially when there is a large crowd as your time gets eaten by just lining up. But then again, know your priority, get in there and just have fun!
