Did you guys know that the longest waterslide in the island of Cebu can be found in Minglanilla? Me, neither. But hey, that’s about to change. 😉
Recently, the Tubod Flowing Resort has expanded and opened the Tubod Bukid Resort – showcasing the longest freshwater slide in Cebu. Yasss! It sounds like a lot of fun for the kids and those who love getting their adrenaline pumping.
A little info on the town of Minglanilla, it is known as the “Sugat Capital of the South”. They have this annual tradition called “Sugat – Kabanhawan Festival” on Easter Sundays. This practice reflects the devotion of the residents of Minglanilla to the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
They’re so lucky to have a freshwater spring up in their mountains – which leads us to Tubod Bukid Resort. The word tubod actually translates to “spring” and bukid, translates to “mountain”; hence the name.
The resort is situated in the mountains overlooking the town of Minglanilla. The place has swimming pools for guests to cool off, and its main attraction is the longest waterslide with a length of 125 meters or 411 feet.
The waterslide starts at the top of the mountain, where guests can have a 360-degree view of the town while sliding down into the main pool. At the end of the slide, there is a 10-foot long pool that serves as a stopper for the waterslide.
Tubod Bukid Resorts’ pool’s design is similar to those that are used for the waterslides in Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark. Would you be brave enough to slide down this waterslide? 🙂
