Continued to fully utilise Lyn’s pass by having another day of excursion~! Actually it’s more of because she was dying to take the G-Max reverse bungee and I had promised to take with her, so there I am, fulfilling my promise 😀
Basically instead of a bungee jump which brings you from up to down with gravitational force, this is a reverse which bounces you down to up with whatever force that is.
Doesn’t sound like a big deal right? Well, I underestimated that whatever force. I was still telling Lyn that I think bungee will be much scarier because that will be like jumping off a building and you may hit the ground should anything goes wrong whereas this is going up and “you can touch the clouds!” HAHAHA.
In reality, when the thing shot us up into the sky to touch the clouds, I let out a scream because I didn’t expect the force to be so strong! It’s really like bouncing us off from the ground and off our seats!
But that wasn’t the worst part – the worst part came when it continued with a 360 degree turn! And that turn caused another shock (when I had yet to recover from the shock-ness of the force) because I didn’t know there’s gonna be a 360-degree turn! I thought it’s basically shooting us up and that’s it!
I got giddy after the first turn; not sure if it’s because of the pressure or shock or just pure dizziness. But all I know is we got bounced up and down a few more times, turned 360-degree for at least another 2-3 times before I could feel the decrease in the force and start getting back my consciousness.
Oh! Eric actually came down to give us his moral support by taking video for us…hahaha! But it was a silent video because he couldn’t hear us scream at all! Actually I only screamed for the very start and stopped right after all the turnings came in @.@
The feeling is pretty much like you’re in a ball being kicked all around…LOL. And all I could think of when I was up there was – “WTF. Why this force so strong till it can turn us so many times?! How long more will it go????!” ROFL.
And when I finally regained my consciousness, all I could say was, “很晕。。。很晕。。。很晕。。。很晕。。。” because it was really giddy!!! I wouldn’t say it was scary and that I would never take it ever again kind (it’s definitely better than Forest Adventure), just that it was really unexpected and definitely – a giddy ride…hahahaha!
Not bad; still had fun, but I wouldn’t pay $40+ for it. And if I have known that Lyn secretly paid for the discounted tickets (I thought it was free!!!), I wouldn’t have taken them either -_- It’s still way too overpriced I would say. Because the whole ride only lasted for like 1 minute and that’s it? Nevertheless, glad to at least have this once in a lifetime experience xD
Here’s a glimpse of our unglam GoPro video (there’s a GoPro camera right in front of us throughout the ride)! This was towards the ending when I was already damn giddy…LOL!
Roamed around Marina Square for a while and chanced upon an interesting exhibition~ Then I spotted a familiar face from a video and exclaimed, “宝顺老师 leh! 宝顺老师 leh!! 宝顺老师 leh!!!” Too bad Lyn only managed to capture his
signature shiny forehead…LOL!
Fulfilling excursion weekend! Thank you, Ah Lyn! (((:
