Have you heard about the Skyrides Festivals Park, 1st Biggest Helium Balloon in Putrajaya? This is one of Putrajaya's attraction which they just launched on this year 2016. As you know, you always visit the Putrajaya Mosque, Seri Wawasan bridge and Menara Alaf Baru. Or you are cruising on Putrajaya Lake, and enjoyed to view the Putrajaya Botanical Garden or the China-Malaysia Friendship Garden. Well, Putrajaya always do a very interesting attraction which make the tourists who interested in the Hot Air Balloon! Every year, they hosted the International Hot Air Balloon Festival, so many Malaysians love to sit down and take a great view of sunrise with the Hot Air Balloon!
Now, Putrajaya make Skyrides Festivals Park become a very special event whihch are open to the public. That is what make them be first-time biggest helium balloon, it looks as big hot air balloon can fly from 150 metres up in the sky! Cool!
My good friends and I planned to visit the Putrajaya since the Skyrides Festivals Park invited me and Woan Koon, who is Deaf blogger on last month, so we love to check out if the hot air balloon is big or not. Sad, we are not lucky to ride when the weather are raining and windy...
We went to look for the launch event of Skyrides Festivals Park after we reached the Sky Park in Putrajaya. My friends who enjoyed to take more photos around the sky park, until we found out that a cute mascot Frog always act as 'cool' and just smile when he loves to play with the kids with their parent, that make us to take photo with him!
Finally, I spotted a very big hot air balloon in front of us when we walked to the end of park only! My friends shocked when they saw a hot air balloon are flying up so slowly. We checked on the launch of event which have a stage performance and the kids who joined the SkyKids Warriors at the SkyStage. Don't worry, the SkyStage is free admission as you and your friends can join the music performance when you are free.
There are new obstacle challenge named, "SkyWarrior Rainforest Challenge". You may find this skywarrior challenge are similar as "American Ninja Warrior" game show in Astro AXN.
SkyWarriors Rainforest Challenge is a game to test your strength and endurance in a rainforest-inspired obstacle course, complete with pit, and hurdles. I think that this skywarrior also featuring 8 stages which the level is not very difficulty so it can be suitable for the beginners who take part in the challenges. If you failed, you will fall into the pool!
For the SkyWarrior adults and students, RM35 per person as you keep to try again if you failed in the skywarrior challenge, until you success to complete your challenge!

It help the kids become active at the sport as they experience new challenge to play in the natural playground, just for fun and pleasure!
