When we told Ethan we were going to AdventureZone once again, he was ecstatic! He had been asking and asking and asking to go back there and he was really really psyched up this time.
Took all of their effort to pose and smile for the camera before I let them run into the play area…
Amazing how much energy these kids possess. They had 2 hours to play in the area, and after what felt like an hour and a half, Pete tells me it’s only been 20 minutes. Thank goodness the entire area was air-conditioned. Hehe.
This time round, Ethan was more adventurous, and loudly proclaimed that he wasn’t afraid to go down the slides now. His favorite was the “Hyperglide Astra Drop” (rainbow) slide, which had a height of 18 feet (5.5 metres) and a length of 50 feet (15.2 metres). This one required the us to use a mat as we slid down. Ethan also tried the “Double Drop” (blue) slide, which had a ball pit exit, and stands 20 feet (6.1 metres) tall and has a length of 48 feet (14.6 metres). The red slide is called the “Demon Drop” slide, and is not for the faint-hearted. It has a vertical drop of 24 feet (7.3 metres) and spans 75 feet (22.9 metres). Pete got on it a couple of times, and I got on just once (because Pete dared me to).
Since Hannah was not old enough to get on the Hyperglide Astra Drop on her own, she would either sit on Pete’s or my lap while we rode on the mats. Ethan would go over and over again, each time gaining more and more confidence. Initially he needed our help to carry the mat up, but in the end, he would carry the mat up by himself.
Here’s a video I took of Ethan riding the Hyperglide Astra Drop all by himself:
And after a two-hour PLUS workout, we headed nearby for a totally satisfying reward: The Rasa Sayang Seafood Buffet Dinner. *burp*
