Backlog: Splash Mountain Escapade with friends!

One of the backlog entry, this time with my friends. We planned a swimming escapade despite of our busy working schedule. We want something exciting aside from swimming, so I found something which we can truly enjoy. 2 Gigantic water slides @ Splash Mountain in Calamba Laguna! :)



We managed to go there by means of commuting. Bus going to Laguna (Turbina) when our friend met us there, then ride a jeepney going to SM Calamba, then another jeep going to Splash Mountain. I can't give the exact details because our friend is our guide. *wink* But don't worry it would be easy. You can ride a bus bound for Sta. Cruz, Laguna. This will pass by Los Baños, just tell the bus conductor to drop you off at Splash Mountain. Splash, Suites and Oasis Hotel are located at Splash Mountain resort complex. OR


"If you are coming from Quezon City, aircon buses are available at Cubao, along EDSA corner Aurora Boulevard. HM Transport leaves at 3:30 am daily from Cubao to Sta. Cruz via Los Baños and buses depart every 15 minutes until 10 pm. Going home from Los Baños, you can wait for buses bound for Cubao at the highway in front of Splash Mountain. The last trip for buses coming from Sta. Cruz is at 8:00 pm. For those coming from Manila, aircon buses bound for Sta. Cruz are available at JAM and Tritran bus terminals at LRT station, Buendia. First trip is also at 3:30 am and buses also depart every 15 minutes." -Splash mountain website

*Here's a look at their place* (Photos from their website)
 ``Pool 1 - Located at the middle part of the resort. Usually the place for big group gatherings
 ``Pool 2 - Located also at the middle part of the resort. The level of water is not that high. Good for kids.
 ``Pool 3 - Just right beside the other pool. That connects one pool to another. 
 ``Pool 3 - The outcast-ed pool of all. HAHAHA!
 ``Other view of the pools
 ``Kiddie Pool
``The play ground

*Let's not forget their giant slides !*
 ``Yup, it's really long! :o
 ``Long circular pool around the giant slides. You can use the big floaters for free ;)
``Weeeeee!! :))

``Aside from the popular giant slides, it has additional attraction. The blue slide and the white slide is different from each other. The Blue Slide is a long twisted circular slide, across the white slide while the White Slide where in you have to bring the floater with you, then ride, and let the water blow you away! weeee!! that's my personal favorite. You can also try by two's, three's or even four! It so much fun when we tried the group slides. HAHAHA!! 
NOTE: You will be submerged in a luke warm swimming pool. Since Laguna is popular for hot springs, this pool is dedicated for that one. HAHA. But don't worry, it's not that hot to cause you pain or something. It's kinda relaxing actually ;)

*Now let me show you our shots*
``Readyyyyy..
``Settttt....
``GOOOOO!!

Opps, before I forgot, if you will stay in their Hotel/Suites, the entrance fee is included already. The use of the slides has another payment. Make sure it's clearly explained for the reason that, they told us it was included in the overnight package, then when we entered the slide area, they told us that our wrist band is different, and not allowed to enter. SUPER BV that time. So I went to the reception area, and had our conversation with the crew. So we had another payment for the giant slides. In the end, they apologized for what happened. HAY!! Alright, moving on, so let's look at their place. :)

``The key card of the room
``Some foods during our stay. Ordinary meal, Nothing special about it. in fact, I don't like it.
``The gamblers :))
``The loooong slides :)
FRIENDS is L-O-V-E
``Up Up and Awaaay! :D
 ``Me on the White Slide ;)
``Group Slides
``By two's. I don't want to stay on front, I might fall out of the floater. HAHAHA
``Can you guess who's enjoying so much? nyahahah!! 
 ``The Blue and White slides
``Guess who?
``hihihi. my kiddo looking boyfriend :D
``Us with the Slides. isn't nice? :)
``Our Group Shot :))

 Overall, I had so much fun especially with the slides. But if we'll talk about the food with the range of 1-10, I'll give it 5. Nothing special with their food. Their service, I'll give it 7. Not that accommodating and warm welcome when we arrived. But everything is worthy especially if it's spent with your friends. ;)

  1. I agree with your last statement here, i called to book our stay here and somebody named "rowena" answered. She's so disrespectful and even had the audacity to go off the phone (while im on the line) and yell at somebody she addressed as "kuya" about the smelly cat poop that needed to be cleaned. After o heard that i gave up , i dont want to stay in their place given that reason. Shame the place looks cool tho.
