Discovering Inflatable Island in Subic was an accident. My family and friends including I thought that the Inflatable Island and the Aqua Thrilla Park of Samba are the same.
So, to be clear – the Inflatable Island obviously, is set on the sea while the Aqua Thrilla Park is on the land. They also have a separate booth as seen in the picture below.
Inflatable Island is the newest attraction in Subic because it boasts as the biggest inflatable island in Asia. It is over 4,100 square meter, a size of 8 basketball courts! To experience this biggest water playground, here are the rates below:
Sprinkle (Whole Day on the Beach)
one-hour pass – P499
10-11 AM and so forth till 6 PM
Splash (whole day on the beach)
2 hours pass
Half day pass
All day pass
My friends and I took the one-hour pass and it was hella fun. The way we described it is “the longest but also the happiest hour of the day”. Before getting to the Inflatable Island, the staff asked us to have a 10-minute orientation for the do’s and don’ts while we were in the area.
The fee is included with a free access to the Bali Lounge with hues of pink and lavender colors and to the Floating Zoo.
As you can see, all participants were provided with life jacket even if the participant knows how to swim.
If there are two games that should not be missed on the Inflatable Island, that is the Human Launcher where person A is at the edge of the inflatable lying on his back, arms spread, and legs closed, whereas person B will jump on the opposite edge from a 12-ft height (my estimate). Imagine doing this will be both a challenge to you and to your friend to jump and to get launched. In my case, a professional trainer was the one who jumped and I was the one launched up to the sky. Being a professional, his jump was perfect and so my launch. I was so high, it was a surreal moment seeing my world twirled up – my sky is the sea and my sea is the sky and I was rotating in the air. It was so fast that I didn’t notice I already splashed in the water. They say I landed on my feet. Some of my friends landed on their back which hurt them a bit. So what hurt me? My nose, but the staff said beforehand not to cover my nose whatever may happen because I might scar it from the impact. Too bad we don’t have waterproof gadget to record the moment. As you can see in the picture below, somebody will jump and the other person is on the edge.

Seriously speaking, the pain easily subsided so there’s nothing to worry. But if you are worried about the security, the staff are all there. Di ka nila pababayaan.
The next game worth trying is the Tarzan. Well, you just do how Tarzan did it. But when doing this, timing is important. Know when to let go of the swing or you might get hurt if you fall on the slide and not on the water.
Translate: Alamin mo sa sarili mo kung kailan ka ba dapat kumapit o bumitaw.
The slide was also fun especially when you do it altogether!
Translate: Mas masaya pag sama-sama.
I believe we have tried all of it except the Kiddie Slide and Rock Climbing. We were not able to try most of the games in the Unicorn Island (see photo below) because we lacked time.
I suggest you get the 2-hour pass to try all the games in the orange-blue island for one hour and spend another 1 hour in the Unicorn Island to take Instagrammable pictures and to also try the games there.
When our time was over, we just sat and rest ourselves in the Floating Zoo but not for long since it is starting to get hotter.
Yes, the Pink Bali Lounge is for free as long as you have admission to the Inflatable Island play, but it is not really recommended if you have packed food, and wants to eat with a table so what we did is we got the cottage from Samba Bluewater Resort since they are owned by one company. We got our cottage for P1,450, where P200 is refundable. See more rates here.
We only stayed here a bit to take pictures under the pink and lavender umbrella then went to our cottage. Blend in with the colors of cotton candy!
There are food stalls in the resort.
They also have Sunset Party Packages but I don’t know the full details. They also accommodate team building.
