Learn more about ziplining and renew your experience of nature in a bold way with the Maria Cristina Ziplines.
Step off the platform into this extremely thrilling and not even safety controlled freefall adventure. Definitely no provision of life and medical insurance when you race friends over the long single straightaway line at the top of those trees! The question is, are you a no holds barred thrill seeker who is brave and wise enough to jump into this crazy fun activity?
When you are as active as any other mountain hikers and international travelers, you may want to be slimmer and condition your body for any fun events that awaits you. The zipline may not let you swing across the lines if you are a bit overweight, because you may need to pull yourself at times using your upper body strength.
Does ziplining and maneuvering across suspended bridges exciting enough for you? For me, this could be a drooling adventure that taste like food. My advice?
Let fun drive you to challenging adventures up there. Hook to the cable, step off the platform, and fly through the air sitting or laying face down. Zip weightless!
Have fun zipping yourself through the line from platform to platform at the Maria Cristina Falls for only P250 per person. Try something different for a change. May not be good if you have a slipped disc, so clear everything with your doctor first.
The zipline adventure is a good way to boost your confidence and exercise some freedom up there. Do not worry if you are a first time zipper. The lines were built strong enough to hold you.
There is no breaking system, so you should brace yourself for the unexpected. Oh, by the way, they do not have any insurance pack for the zippers, so you know what to do – hold on tightly to the rope and try not to fall. The Maria Cristina Falls Zipline is the highest in Iligan City.
Didn’t I scare you yet? Your speed and safety might not only depend on the line and the hooks, but also on wind velocity and weight. Heavier people may make themselves through to the end with no problem.
The guides are respectful and trained to keep you out of harm’s way. This is actually a small decision for you to experience a high risk, really high altitude zipline adventure. The hospital is located in the city and far from this place.
Get this one in a million chance to experience a gravity defying thrill of flying through the trees. This is a perfect activity for you to give your vacation a touch out of the ordinary.

The activity is really impressive. My daughter, nieces, and nephews love it. I did not try it because I haven’t cleared with my doctor if my slipped discs are allowed to go zipping. But really, I want to give it a try.
The Zipline is very popular and the visitors there are not even keen about the insurance and the first aid. Oops, there is no doctor on the spot. OMG, I just remember.
We went there in March 2013, maybe safety regulations are better now. Anyway, we went out in one piece and no broken bones. Try it!
There is an entrance fee: P25 for kids and P35 for adults
