Sky Wheel is the newest addition of the Sky Adventure rides at the Eden Nature Park and Resort. This is alongside with the Sky Rider, Sky Cycle and Sky Swing. Therefore, a total of four (4) rides to choose and experience the Adventure Tourism activities of the park resort.

How’s the experience on this new ride? Well, as among one of the first few who got in the wheel on the day of the opening, I would say that the ride is a fun, thrilling one. Why? It is because when you ride it, you thought it is very easy but it is not. You have to focus on what you have to do such as the simple walking in the wheel on a high ground or 60 feet from the ground, which is also 3000 feet above sea level. You are situated in the middle of the air, in the wheel, with three connecting wires attached to the wheel that serve as support and you have to do that for 400 meters (200 meters to and from). I am calm but a bit distracted with the thing I am handling, the gimbal with my smartphone, but I really enjoyed it - it's a threadmill in the sky! LOL

As many would like to have a selfie while doing the ride, you can always do that but I suggest you not. Why? It is because you need to focus on your walk - your walk should be on a straight path following the wire below the wheel so that the wheel will be stable; focus on your grip - as you have to hold the handle in front of you to allow your body to lean a bit forward and manage your weight to the wheel, walk and move forward; and focus on your activity - taking videos or photos might distract your walk and grip that may cause you to panic a bit. However, if you are used to multitask, it’s easy as ABC. LOL Also, do not be afraid as safety is paramount concern of the operator and trained attendants, hence, you just need to walk in the wheel like in the park.

So, if you want to experience this ride, visit the Eden Nature Park and Resort at Barangay Eden, Toril, Davao City. It is about 30 kilometers from the city proper. It is on a high altitude so, there’s a good panoramic view of the city proper from afar. Experience Sky Wheel at the Sky Adventure Park for a fee of P200. Usually, Mondays to Thursdays, it is open from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM and Fridays to Sundays from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

By the way, aside from the Adventure Tourism that the park offers, you can also experience here eco-tourism, as well as, agri-tourism. You can also have your corporate seminars or events here and also for your special day like a garden wedding and even retreat.

I am excited that you guys will experience the Sky Wheel! I hope to do it again very soon, too!

Thank you very much Eden Nature Park and Resort for the Sky Wheel experience, as well as the other Sky Adventure ride!

Thank you for visiting my avenue,
