COUNTRY'S FIRST ARCHERY CHALLENGE MAZE OPENS IN THE SANDBOX AT ALVIERA
I must admit that one of the reasons why I've found an interest in archery is the Hunger Games books. I wouldn't say that I'm crazy about the trilogy (and the movies as well) but there's something badass, albeit primitive, about being able to hunt and defend yourself with just a bow and an arrow. You know what else is badass? Being able to actually do it Legolas-style! Complete with orcs as targets, running for dear life while loading an arrow in the process, minus the tumbling and rolling of course. Add the pressure of a time limit and you'll get an exciting way to enjoy archery!
So if you're planning on a weekend beach trip up north, why not include the latest attraction of Sandbox in your itinerary?
Following the success of Sandbox outdoor archery, Alviera presents the first ever archery challenge maze in the country. Nowhere else can archers run through a maze and face moving targets and obstacles, all under time pressure. This new Sandbox attraction in Porac, Pampanga has been dubbed Aqtiv Archery and is expected to provide a whole new exciting outdoor experience.
Other Sandbox attractions have been bringing families, friends and even corporations to the park regularly in large numbers.

|Themed settings will change over time, so if you're a court jester in this adventure, you may be a witch, a Viking or even a hippie in the next.|
|With Aqtiv Archery, participants are given a mission that must be completed within 3 to 5 minutes in the maze depending on the mission's level of difficulty. Unlike target archery, participants must expect turns and twists and moving targets.|
|For the first mission, archers will face off against Monsters of the Wall. They (the archers) will be on the run, which adds difficulty to the activity.|
|And in keeping with a themed and more fun setting, participants will be wearing costumes and headgear. In my case, I'm wearing a GoPro as a headgear. I'll upload a video of my Aqtiv Archery experience soon.|
|Archers who beat the set time for the challenge will be granted Archery Elite status and will win some tokens from Oculus Archery. Every end of the month, the top 5 fastest archers that completed the challenge will be showcased.|
|Rate for Aqtiv Archery is at Php250 per attempt on the challenge maze and a package rate of Php400 includes a 30-minute target archery|
|Alviera and Oculus Archery will look into hosting tournaments in Sandbox in the near future, in partnership with academic and sports institutions.|
Visitors can also watch out for exciting signature events such as the upcoming summer music and camping festival, Brightscape Campfest.
