@ [anyone/everyone]

Hmmm...

How much does it cost to ride the Edge Coaster or the Insanity Orbit?

Seems like they're a lot of fun!

If these rides would be hits, I expect a full-fledged amusement park wouldn't be a far-fetched vision for Cebu.

40 Flr.

Extending from the 40th floor of the Crown Regency Hotel & Towers is an inverted centrifuge that will spin passengers at up to three G's. Insanity Orbit is the 2nd ride of its kind in the world patterned after the famous Las Vegas' Stratosphere that pulls the riders out in escape proof seats to an angle of 70 degrees.






38 Flr.

Uniquely the world's very first and only amusement ride of its kind, the Edge Coaster goes around the edge of the building while riders are strapped onto a rail seat. High above at the 38th level, riders can indulge in a breathtaking view of the city and playfully pull a level that can tilt their seats up to 55 degrees.







The Sky Observatory will offer the best view of the city with coin-operated binoculars and telescopes



The Fun is literally sky's the limit at the Sky Bar. With floors made of thick, clear glass protruding out of the building, you can chill out with you closest buds, chat the night away with your favorite drinks in hand, and marvel at the city 38 floors below your feet.






37 Flr.

Walk around the edge of the building while being tied to a safety harness. The Sky Walk Extreme will take you to a leisure trip at the sky and walk you on the clouds at the 37th floor.



Dine with the lights and the sound of live bands at the 37th floor! Sparkz Restobar is not yet another hangout that will add excitement to the urban night life.






36 Flr.

Club 36 is an exclusive gentlemen's club where indulgence is reserved for a chosen few. Strictly for the gentlemen, it's the perfect venue for male bonding and business talks.






35 Flr.

Crown Regency Hotel & Towers adds a different kind of flavor to the diverse range of culinary fares in Cebu. Serving sumptuos international cuisine, Stratus Fine Dining will become every foodie's dream destination.






19 Flr.

The Sky Lounge is the converging area for all Sky Experience Adventure guests, which also links to Tower 2 Club Ultima Business Center. At 19 stories high, one can sit back and bask in the overwhelming view of the city.




18 Flr.

Located at the 18th floor will be the ultimate gaming arcade where gamers can blast, hit, punch, and jump to their hearts' content while outwitting and outlasting their virtual challengers.




















My Gawd! This is it!

Hahaha! Is that hotel/condo in Cebu over 1,000 ft in height or at least 100 floors? The concept for the rides in Cebu were inspired and copied from the rides in Vegas.

The one is LV is +100m taller obviously since it's an observation tower.. The rides are also very much more intense.
