Outdoor archery opens at Sandbox in Porac, Pampanga


Oculus Archery leads slew of new attractions at SandBox in Porac, Pampanga  

Take aim and find your center at SandBox at Alviera as the adventure park opens an outdoor archery for families and friends to enjoy. SandBox at Alviera in Porac, Pampanga has partnered with Oculus Archery to bring fun with the bow and arrow in a new outdoor range this love month.

Newbie archers as young as 7 years old, accompanied by an adult, or young at heart with senior cards, are welcome to experience outdoor archery at SandBox. The packages priced at P400 for a one-hour session or P250 for a 30-minute session include basic coaching, bow & arrows, quiver, chest and arm guards plus one balloon target. There are also various novelty targets available such as famous cartoon villains to make the activity more fun and interesting especially for kids.

“Our mission is to erase the notion that archery is an elite sport. Anyone can enjoy it from kids to adults as long as they have the upper body strength to pull the string and concentrate on their target,” said Krizia Chu-Tranquilino, General Manager of Oculus Archery.

The lessons conducted by expert archers are accessible and comprehensive, without removing fun in the equation. Archery helps clear the mind, and allows people to decompress when under stress. For kids, it will train their mind to focus, a very important skill at school.

The Aerial Walk, an obstacle course with horizontal and vertical elements, has also been expanded for a longer, more challenging, and exciting experience. From 17 activities, it now offers 28 activities with the addition of new tunnels, loops, beams, nets, and ziplines. Guests who will take the challenge to complete this pumped up Aerial Walk can expect a real workout.

Bikers, in the meantime, can get their hearts pumping in the 9-km Alviera-Columbia Bike Trail located adjacent to the park and within the perimeter of Alviera. This is where guests can bring their own bikes and enjoy a ride with their families and friends while taking pleasure at the scenic views of the Porac mountain range.

Part of the initial phase of the Alviera development, SandBox has drawn almost a hundred thousand walk-in visitors for its outdoor adventure attractions since it opened in April last year. The Giant Swing, the country’s tallest at 10-meters high, provides riders an exhilarating swing through the air. Housing the Wall Climbing, Rappelling and Free Fall, there’s the 15-meter Adventure Tower, which also provides the best views within and around Alviera.

Among the favorites of visiting guests is this giant swing at the Sandbox. 
The adventure continues with the Avatar One, Asia’s first roller coaster zipline, which brings daring visitors 180-meters up and down through lines and curves. Guests can also drive the ATV and go through rough and plain terrain, rivers, mountains, and forests. Guests who are less active can enjoy the Mini Golf or play with their kids at the chidlren’s playground, SandBox also has an open field for sports, parties, and other outdoor activities. Everyone in the family can have fun in SandBox.

“SandBox has given visitors unique outdoor thrills built from the natural environment of Alviera. We are excited to bring more fun attractions for the community as we continue with our development plans for Alviera,” said John Estacio, Alviera General Manager.

SandBox at Alviera is just starting. Everyone can look forward to additional attractions and activities including night operations. With SandBox being opened at night, guests can finally enjoy outdoor activities under 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 karting, airsoft, and paintball will also open this year.

Alviera is a 1,100 hectare masterplanned development by Ayala Land in partnership with Leonio Land. It is envisioned to become the regional growth center of Central Luzon complete with residential options, country club, shopping and dining choices, as well as educational and business facilities for a holistic living experience.

SandBox at Alviera is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. For booking guidelines, visit the Alviera webpage at www.alviera.ph and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter at AlvieraPh.
