Club Balai Isabel Aqua Park Grand Opening

With my little boy Ivan MommyGiay took advantage of the four-days long vacation (being ASEAN Week and National Labor Day) and we had our most sought after day-off.  Just in time we were invited for the Grand Opening of the Club Balai Iabel Aqua Park.

The Aqua Park is a huge inflatable trampoline park afloat the Taal Lake Shore.  It boasts the country's tallest inflatable water slide and with stunning view of the very famous Taal Volcano.

The party was hosted by Mr. George CariƱo and Ms. Amy Perez of ABS-CBN Network.  It was also attended by local officials from the Provincial Government of Batangas and Talisay municipality. The designer and creator of the aqua park Mr. Peter Appleton was also there as he explained what's behind the concept of this water park. Accordingly, with his wife they are planning to settle here in the Philippines for more business ventures, which probably means soon there will be more aqua parks around the Philippines.

But for safety reasons, for now the aqua park admits only adults and kids either they are 13 years old above and/or 4 feet in height. Though there's a plan to expand the play area to accommodate the kids 13 years old below, that's good news for Ivan.

I've had my own experience and full enjoyment of the aqua park. Honestly its my first time in something like this. Even when we used to lived abroad, we've never been to an aqua park as we mostly visited the amusement park where husband works.

I was not able to cover the whole area of the Club Balai Isabel Aqua Park because there are certain portions where I had some difficulty maneuvering the obstacles. Yeah! MommyGiay is not so young anymore therefore it is exhausting and I have some fears when it comes to waters. Likewise I never dared to try the giant slide but according to my friends everything here is awesome. Anyway, getting aboard the swan trampoline is already a total enjoyment for me. I fall-off the water once and did I tasted Taal Lake not so fresh water? Good thing, the "kuya" life guards aer so helpful and accommodating.  They all reach out and tried their best to assist everyone. Yeah! they just so great helping me out to maneuver some of the obstacles and getting to the other side.

All in all, it was a fun and great adventure.  Hopefully we can extend some more time and enjoyed basking in the morning sun.  But for now, there's long line for the other guests waiting for their turn to experience the aqua park adventure.  Well, I'll make sure I can come back some other time and bring my whole family here.

Also it was time for us to go, my little boy borrowed the staff's megaphone and called on MommyGiay.  "Mommy go back, I am hungry and I want water", everyone hearing it, ha!ha! Moms with kids can't really have 100% relax mode even while on vacation.  And he had his share of tantrums as he was not allowed yet access to the aqua park. Nevertheless, he enjoyed long hours of swimming at Balai Isabel's vast swimming pool.

Thanks to my blogger friends for the whole 2-days fun and adventurous summer vacay with you. Its always nice going back to Club Balai Isabel. For more details you may visit their website or at their Facebook and Instagram pages for more updates on promotions and club activities.

At the end of the day let us always thank the Lord God for all His beautiful creations.
