With so many attractions to visit and several activities to do in Cebu, you might have perceived pool resorts as “boring” already, unless these are high-end resorts. Well, if you are up for an adventure to satisfy your adrenaline rush, the Tubod Bukid Resort in Minglanilla is perfect for you.
It’s crazy! Tubod Bukid Resort, an extension of the renowned Tubod Flowing Water Resort, boasts the longest pool slide we have ever seen in Cebu, at 411 feet or 125 meters long from the top of the bukid / mountain overlooking to the busy streets of Minglanilla. Would you dare?
THE LONG SLIDE
If you notice at the end of the slide, there’s around 10-ft long part with water. It serves as the stopper. This concept is also being used by JPark and other resorts abroad.
