Fun at Cebu’s Upside Down World and Extreme Aeropark


I’m always up for something new and interesting everyday and this is no exception. Now Cebu as you may all know is quite well-known for their awesome beaches, party places and their wide array of food and also their urban lifestyle. Considering we were just staying there for a short time, we decided to go to Upside Down World and Extreme Aeropark in just one day. I’d never expect that we’d be all so tired out from the activities!

Upside Down World Cebu

Our first stop is at Upside Down World Cebu which is located at City Time Square 2nd Floor, Mandaue City. This was also my first visit, so I was expecting it looked like some sort of house but in actuality it was very spacious and the lighting made every photo shot look pretty amazing. You could say it was a modern museum of some sort. The lady at the entrance also told us that they had a Monthly Best Photo Competition and the winner gets to take home a cash prize!

Come prepared with a heap of creative poses

We were then asked to put our shoes in their designated locker, so you could either go barefoot or go around the area with your socks on! I had to adjust my eyes at first as we entered the first room. It was slightly dizzying since all the things that were supposed to be found down below were all hanging upside down from the wall. It was unusual and unsettling seeing that a neatly done bed just hang from the ceiling and even the TV that was turned on!

The Rooms

The area had a total of eleven rooms. Each having their own theme and decor which were the following:

  • Living room
  • Study room
  • Bedroom
  • Kid’s room
  • Market
  • Kitchen
  • Dining room
  • Laundry room
  • Bathroom
  • Fortune teller
  • Casino

All the staff were quite a friendly bunch! They were also very helpful and willing to assist us with our cameras and footage. One thing we didn’t think about prior to getting inside was what we were supposed to do there! We never really thought up of any decent poses and yet the staff were kind enough to suggest various poses and scenes to act out. It was hilarious aside from the fact that they totally accepted how awkward we were. It was quite a workout since you had to do several poses just to get that perfect shot!

The area was quite cool actually but as we neared the exit, we were already sweating like crazy because it felt like quite a workout. From kicking and jumping and even rolling around.

Extreme Aeropark

Do you want to train to become a ninja? Been wanting to try out your Parkour skills? The you have surely come to the right place. You can enjoy the following activities while you’re there such as:

  • Laser Tag
  • Trampoline
  • Beam Fight
  • Slam Ball
  • Bubble Soccer
  • Dodge Ball
  • Wall Climbing
  • Foam Pit
  • Free Jump
  • Delta Tag
  • Ninja Arena
  • Fitness Area

For first timers like myself, you had to have some sort of record there for future visits. That’s why they take a photo of you aside from collecting your information and signing their waiver. They then lead you to a TV screen to which you had yo watch their safety regulation clip. Their stick figure illustrations were quite amusing.

Rates:

Their prices vary according to the activity and day. It will be slightly higher during the weekends since there are more people during that time.

You will also be provided with grip socks before going in to the play area. Before you proceed further on though I would like to suggest that you follow up their warm up exercises or do a little bit of stretching. The play area was quite huge and they also had a snack area for the hungry. Personally, I was already sweaty and out of breath in less than an hour from all the jumping, climbing, shooting and grabbing on to things. Better bring an extra shirt with you and keep yourself hydrated at all times.

Overall my experience that day made me feel like a kid not giving a care in the world for a time. It also made me build quite an appetite that day!
