Xtreme Adventure on a Monday

The boys and me

The boys and me

During our trip to Phuket one of the activities which we opted to do was a treetop adventure at  Phuket Xtreme Adventure. Monkey boy had tried tree climbing when we brought him to Forrest  Adventure at Bedok. However at that time Doggie boy was too young and didn’t meet the height requirement and had to sit out while his brother had his fun. This time both boys were able to have their own adventures in the trees.

Monkey boy and R went on the adult’s course while Doggie boy and I opted for the simpler course and stayed with the Kids Zone. Monkey boy was raring to go and R had to catch up to him. Talk about a good afternoon workout 🙂

The obstacle course was more complex and there were more stations at this Adventure park as compared to the one in Bedok. However how difficult and challenging  they were they did not pose much difficulty to Monkey boy as he managed to clear every station.

The Kid Zone  was set up amongst a cluster of trees and there was a large safety  net  covering the whole area. Doggie boy and I did not need to wear a safety harness and we were given only gloves to protect our hands from bruising. He didn’t manage to complete all the obstacles but it was certainly a good experience for him. Doggie boy doesn’t really fancy these climbing activities but he did step out of his comfort zone to try them. It was a commendable effort on his part and I’m proud of him. Maybe next time he will be ready for the adult course and we can all go on the same course together.


Have you been on a tree top adventure with your kids?


This week I am sharing  a Christmas song sung in Japanese.
