Roller Coaster Zipline in Porac, Pampanga


The Avatar One Roller Coaster Zipline in Porac, Pampanga is the first ever roller coaster zipline in Asia and in the Philippines. It is situated inside SandBox, an outdoor adventure park within the Alviera integrated mixed-use development by Ayala Land.

The park officially opened last April 12, 2014 and we were fortunate to be invited on the opening day to experience the attractions and activities available at SandBox.

The experience begins at the Adventure Tower where riders are given an orientation and prepared for the ride with helmet and safety harness.

Unlike in a regular zipline wherein the rider zips down a cable in a straight line, the roller coaster zipline curves up and down, and left and right, giving a roller-coaster like experience.

The curves of the zipline actually keeps a comfortable speed to the ride. Riders of any age will definitely enjoy the roller coaster zipline.

An attendant waits at the end of the zipline where the rider slows to a stop. The attendant will then assist the rider off the zipline.

It's a brand new experience if we'll win the tickets for this roller coaster zipline. Definitely, I'll tag along my boyfriend as he will be celebrating his birthday this May. So for it to be extra special I would want to try on the #trending ride which is the roller coaster zipline with him ^.^

Me and my friends wants to try this Sand Box adventures but we don't know how can we get there . By the way we are from Cagayan de Oro City . Can teach us how can we get there from NAIA Airport ? Thanks!

Hi Thanks for visiting our blog. From NAIA, you take a taxi going to Victory Liner or 5Star bus terminal in Pasay. Just inquire which Baguio- bound bus will make a stop at Dau-Terminal. From Dau-Terminal (Mabalacat Pampanga) you have to choices: (option 1) take 2-3 jeepney rides, pls refer to the instructions in the article; (option 2) if you are a big group you can consider renting a van in Dau/Angeles (~P3,000). If you prefer the van rental, I can refer a contact in Angeles City
