MegaZip Adventure Park: Team Building and Family Fun With a Difference


The afternoon before ZoukOut 2009 I spent an afternoon at the MegaZip Adventure Park at Sentosa as part of the Singapore Tourism Board FAM itinerary.

Megazip: Asia’s most extreme zip line takes adrenaline junkies from the jungle canopy of Imbiah Hill to the white sands of Fox Finish Point. ClimbMax: Singapore’s premiere high ropes adventure course. 15 metre high Eucalyptus trees create a formidable course in the jungle hilltops of Sentosa. At the ParaJump leap point, the views are amazing. Ocean, jungle, palms swaying in the breeze, white sand beaches… and a 50 foot drop to the family below! A custom made safety wire and harness developed in the UK and controlled with clockwork efficiency by our experienced staff is a first for Singapore and allows you to replicate a freefall parachute jump – without the plane ride! NorthFace: Test yourself on this monster of a climbing wall! The 16 metre wall is one of the highest in Singapore, with three different routes to the top. Under the supervision of our climbing instructors you will be safely belayed all the way to the top. Find your own route, reach the summit, and then lean back, relax, and absail back down the North Face.

"We have gone through a strenuous accreditation procedure and as well as adhering to all Singaporean safety standards, we have taken these as a foundation then applied the highest international standards if they exceed local regulations."

On all adventures at the Park, guests are securely fastened from start to finish in a custom-fitted full-body harness. This harness is attached to a safety wire that follows a continuous path around the ClimbMax course. The safety wire ensures that should a guest fall, their drop is minimal and they can comfortably sit in their harness for as long as required.

I think I hung around the park for about an hour or so during which time it was long enough to photograph a couple of gutsy individuals who gave the ParaJump a go — 50 foot drop to the family below!

This isn't a drill — a visitor's harness is stuck and needs assistance from the crew.

MegaZip support crew quickly reacts to customer requiring assistance.
