The date was confirmed about two weeks in advance, with a group booking for seven at 5PM arranged after two rounds of consultation.
Reaching the top relied mostly on momentum, with a light bounce off the feet towards the end. To maintain safe conditions, players were instructed to turn away from the wall and slide down. Failing to do so was incredibly dangerous, warned the staff, and had even resulted in severe injuries in the past.
I failed to secure enough momentum to traverse over a sharp, raised turn, causing me to travel backwards into those behind me. After manually reversing, I would attempt again. And again, and again. While others were drifting and swiftly passing me by, I was truly struggling with the contraption and the lack of user-friendly gears.
LED lights furnished the facility, serving to provide illumination and visual appeal to the challenges at hand. Through the renowned group photo spot was a rope-climbing course similar to that of GYGO. Adjacent to the corridor were four horizontal bars, each positioned at a different height than the former. I wasn't able to make it through the rope course, nor did I bother with the monkey bars; some members of the party bounced off the wall, while others swung themselves forward with full force - the "dyno" tactic.
The vertical rope net reminded me of Treetop Trekking, yet less abrasive on the hands. Its close proximity to the wall made it challenging to fit one's feet through, though it wasn't too difficult once a point of stability could be secured.
At the other end were three compact segments of sloped tunnels, first ascending then descending. They led to the top of a double slide adorning a paint splatter design.
They did shift slightly after some time, and took an interest in the mini basketball hoop on the wall. Making my way through the pit, I was constantly attacked with falling balls from the failed attempts of our group as well as another couple. Evidently frustrated, I called out "Stop!" with undeniable sternness, yet my woes remained unanswered. Time was being wasted here.
Dragging myself angrily out of the pit, I urged the group to the dodgeball field. We played one quick round of volleyball (unplanned) and about two minutes of dodgeball before we were called off the court at 6:29 PM. Our slot had concluded.
