You can start at the junction of Nestle Road along the National Highway in Tablon. From there, you can hire local motorcycles or ‘habal-habal’ and proceed to Palalan which is a populated community southeast of Nestle factory. If you have a ride, you can go directly to Palalan. Just before Palalan proper, there’s a junction where you can start your trek. Take the southbound road or trail. As shown in the map below, an hour of trekking will lead you to Datu Makapanton’s house where you secure permission.
From the Datu’s house, it’s just a short 10-minute trek to the waterfall site which is a tributary of Umalag River. Here’s a closer look of the map near the waterfall site. (Source)

Laser tag, the newest non-contact sport that’s gaining popularity in Manila and Cebu is now in Cagayan de Oro City.

In case you’re not familiar with the game, it’s pretty similar with airsoft except that players wear a vest and a hold a phaser which is a hand-held infrared-emitting targeting device. It’s like Star Wars in reality. At Laser Blast, players are grouped into two opposing color teams who will try to shoot or tag the players of the other team with their phaser. (Source)

LaserBlast is located at the 3/F of the big building behind Corpus Christi Highschool, just before the entrance gate of MegaHomes Subd, in Macasandig, CDO.

Laser Blast open Sunday to Friday- 12nn to 9pm; Saturday- 10am to 9pm

Rate: Mon to Thurs @ 150/person/game; Friday to Sunday @ 180/person/game

Game time is 15minutes. LaserTag is a sports activity just like basketball. 15mins of play is already long & tiring enough for the average person’s stamina.

Minimum of 4players ( 2 vs 2), Maximum of 12players (6 vs 6)
