Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star. — W. Clement Stone

With the wind blowing against your hair, a beautiful backdrop of the lush green mountains, the newly opened outdoor archery range at Sandbox at Alviera is a great venue to actually take aim,  find your center and shoot for the stars!

I was one of the first to try out the range as we attended the opening day last February 1, 2015 with the presence of Porac Mayor Condralito dela Cruz and Oculus Archery owner Krizia Chu-Tanquilino at the ribbon cutting ceremony and the mayors doing the inaugural shoot!

With the wind blowing against your hair, a beautiful backdrop of the lush green mountains, it is perfect to find your center and hit your target here!  I am definitely feeling the Katnis vibe here.

This was not our first time here in Sandbox Adventure Park, we were there for the opening of Sandbox Adventure Park (story here), but when we were here we were not able to try the Avatar One , the first Roller Coaster Zipline in Asia as it was not operational back then so we took the opportunity to try it then after the archery!

Watch how the Avatar One ride goes:
It is not scary as it looks like, easy peasy really!

We enjoyed it though but if you want something more physical and challenging here in Sandbox Adventure Park the Aerial Walk is way much better. It has a lot of obstacle courses you need to finish from the starting point to the end point. Love it!

Sandbox at Alviera is just starting. Everyone can look forward to additional attractions and activities including night operations. With the Sandbox being opened at night, guest can finally enjoy outdoor activities under the star-filled skies! This will be complimented with the opening of the first set of dining choices in Alviera. Extreme group activities such as urban krafting, airsoft and paintball will also open this year! Exciting!

Sandbox at Alviera is open from Tuesdays to Sundays from 9am to 5pm. For booking guidelines visit www.alviera.ph or follow them on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter @alvieraph.

How about you, have you been to Sandbox yet?

Stay gorgeous everyone!
