What's NEW at Inflatable Island, Subic 2019: The Biggest Floating Playground in Asia!?

What's NEW at the exciting Water Adventure near in Metro Manila!?

We will share to you our experience to the Biggest Floating Playground in Asia, The Inflatable Island in Subic!! or soon to be the BIGGEST UNICORN IN THE WORLD!



YES! You read it right! Their GUINNESS WORLD RECORD application is now on pending!!!



Is the biggest floating playground in Asia. At 3,400 sqm, it's as big as 8 basketball courts put together side by side. It contains inflatables slides, towers, bridges, human launchers, swings and so much more!



What's New?
Their Inflatables also got a MASSIVE ADDITION with the originally designed VORTEX - their CRAZIEST inflatable yet with it sudden slide drops, diving holes and more!

And of course their THE ONE, THE ONLY AND THE SHOCKING - UNICORNZILLA! - The Biggest Unicorn in the WORLD - as HIGH as 5-storey Building

ITINERARY:
Day 1 (Saturday Morning): Departure to Olongapo
5:45am - ETA to Victory Liner Cubao
7:30am - Departure to Olongapo 😓

How to go there from Manila?
🚍 Public Transportation 🚍
Take a bus for OLONGAPO CITY from Victory Liner Terminal (Pasay/Cubao/Caloocan). We decided to depart from Cubao Terminal. Its a 3-4 hours travel time. If you're coming from their Cubao Terminal, the fare is Php 235.00 plus Php 5.00 (total of $5/pax) Malayan Insurance (Travel Insurance) for 2x2 Air conditioned Bus.
Victory Liner Fare Matrix

Since this is our first time going to Olongapo, per our understanding after we purchase our tickets, we will just wait that our bus number to be called but there's no specific time when your bus number to be arrive in the terminal. The real process here is, you need to fall in line on the side of waiting area so you could leave earlier this is the time that you're already a chance passenger (Yes! you read it right. You can be a chance passenger even though you have a purchased ticket). That time we really don't have any idea about their process, we just sit back, take a breakfast from 7 Eleven nearby and relaxed until our number to be called. When we discover it, we take an action already. We leave around 7:30am and its already late to arrive earlier in Olongapo. 
Urgh. This is lesson learned to us so we're sharing this to you so also have an idea especially to those 1st timers also.


NOTE: Cubao Terminal going to Olongapo City has no scheduled departure but based on their website they have (VLI, please update your website!).


PS. VLI's Customer Service is not a GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE. They're not organized!


By the way, there's a 2 bus stops, first is in SM Pampanga (that's what I remember) and in Bataan boundary to Olongapo City. Its a 15mins break, there's a mini stall there if you're hungry.


Once you arrived in Victory Liner Terminal of Olongapo, look for the BLUE JEEP TERMINAL located near Chowking Restaurant, around the Ulo ng Apo. Ride the Jeep and tell driver to drop you in HALFMOON BEACH and you'll be able to see signs for Inflatable Island PH.

🚘 PRIVATE CARS 🚘
From Manila, take NLEX-SCTEX until you see the exit to Subic. Once you do, take the Subic exit. Once you get inside Subic Bay Freeport Zone, take a right to RIZAL HIGHWAY. Go straight until you see the second stoplight (STAY TO THE LEFT). You will be turning left in BURGOS STREET (beside REMY FIELD). Then go RIGHT TO CANAL ROAD. Keep following the road until you reach DEWEY AVENUE, and then exit to the KALAKLAN GATE (way to Zambales).

Afterwards, turn LEFT to Olongapo-Bunggalon Road/RH National Highway and keep straight until you see SAMBA BLUEWATER RESORT where you'll find the entrance to INFLATABLE ISLAND PH.


Please note that it can be found in WAZE or GOOGLE MAPS by searching "Inflatable Island". However, entry is in SAMBA BLUEWATER RESORT.


11:45am - ETA Inflatable Island Subic. Once you arrived in the location, just present your voucher (if you purchased online).
