Have you ever dreamt of becoming Superman and fly? Well, the Zip line Leyte Adventure will let you fulfill this dream and experience soaring at a high speed, flying by wire just like Superman does in the movies.
In the province of Southern Leyte, where the extremely tall Agas-Agas Bridge is located, there is a man-made tourist attraction for brave souls. The Agas-Agas Bridge Zipline or locally known as the “Zipline Leyte” is the longest and tallest zip line in the country. It offers the extraordinary experience on cable wires that traverse the Mahaplag-Sogod section of the Tacloban-Liloan road giving a rider a full view of the panoramic landscape on the bridge’s breathtaking height.
Zipline Leyte is just one of the attractions in the Agas-Agas Adventure Park which will have its full opening on July 1. Cable cars, bungee jumping, downhill skateboarding, rappelling, ATV (all terrain vehicles) will also be available.
Zipline Leyte offers the first tandem zip ride for just P270 per tandem. The riders are equipped with a harness and helmet for safety. One can do it in a prone, supine or in a sitting position.
Agas- Agas is located in Barangay Kahupian, 72 kilometers from Maasin City, 110 kms. from Tacloban City, 101 kms. from Ormoc City, and 36 kms. from Hilongos, Leyte. Take your pick of a jump-off point.
Zipline Leyte is the third Zipline attraction in Eastern Visayas. Recently, the Caluwan Island Resort in Marabut Samar and the Leyte Park Resort in Tacloban City also offered zipline to adventure seekers.
A zip line is also known as the flying fox, zip wire, aerial runway, aerial ropeslide and death slide. It consists of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable. It is usually made of stainless steel. Zip lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment.
