Having just written this review on the day of my experience with this place I can gladly say that my volunteer group and I had lots of fun! The trip started out with a songthaew from bus station near the night bazaar which was probably the least exciting part of the little excursion. Our songthaew driver did not know the way to the park so he had to stop a few times to ask for directions. Meh, but for those taking tuktuks or songthaews know that the trip itself is about 15-20mins away from the station, so depending on your bargaining skills, it should only cost around $1-2.5 dollars equivalent in baht. Our songthaew driver saw that we were going to stay there for longer than an hour and wanted us to pay 60% of what we agreed prior with just the ride there(after agreeing before hand for him to drive us there, wait, and drive us back). Cali(not his actual name, but that's how I recall him because he is from california), the person whom runs the park, saw how the songthaew driving was trying to rip us off and offered us a rideback for free in his car. After talking to the songthaew driver and paying 50% of what we agreed originally for the ride there we started our trip. Tuesday and Lesser (rough thai translation of the names of the thai assistants) started leading us on our trip. Cali had recently fell down a roof and was bandaged and was holding a crutch, so he could not join us for most of the trek, but he still offered to drive us around. Tuesday whom spoke english pretty well was very helpful, he took us to Chiang Rai's beach which was kind of lackluster but eventually lead us to a big buddha statue which was a nice treat. After, we started entering caves near the beaches and trekked through them while taking pictures (the usual good fun stuff). WARNING: wear shoes that will give you some traction as some of the rocks can be slippery, not dangerous, but it will take a bit longer to climb through the caves. Then we heading back to the main camp to do some rock climbing, swinging, and zip lining. The rock climbing was good, fair to note that I am new to rock climbing so it was a little challenging, but a fellow volunteer of ours whom had experience with outdoor rock climbing(she's australian...big suprise>.>) did not have any issues with the rocks. We also got to climb without a rope, although it was not recommended to go high up, we went about half way up the cliff without a rope or a guide just for good fun. The guides constantly reminded us to be careful, and that even they have to be caution if going that high. We really just wanted an awesome view high up...it was=). After hiking back down we were tired and hungry, so Cali offered us yogurt, bananas, and rice cakes, even though it was not part of the agreement. He really does care for his customers. After the rockclimbing we went to the swings, as most of us were curious what this "big swing" was going to look like, so we had no idea what to expect. Once we finished, we hiked up a bit ultil we got to a few platforms on the side of the cliff with one near the base, the guides then connected safety ropes to the harness and were then supposed to jump off the platforms. I'm really not giving the swing justice, but take my words if you've read this much that, it was the highlight of the trip. I even lost my hat during the swing, but one of the assistants looked through the area and found it. After the swings there was zip lining which for anyone who has ever zip lined was standard and entertaining as any other zip line. It was not too long, but a lot faster than most. That marks the end of the excursion. Cali then told us about the showers near the main area, which were extremely useful in the hot temperatures of Northern Thailand. After packing up, the songthaew driver came back even though we told him not to and tried to negotiate a deal with us, we just told him no and got a ride from Cali. Boomerang Rock Climbing and Adventure Park is highly recommended to any adventurers wanting to have fun, but do not expect to be babied everywhere, this park is for those willing to jump off high platforms, zipline through an area extremely quickly, and climb through narrow areas in caves. If you are looking for a relaxing time you came to the wrong page, not to mention the wrong area. The experience was about 4 hours long, there weren't any other guests as it was low season. Cost is 600baht/person, groups are bargainable I believe(but the experience was so nice we all agreed that was 600 baht well spent). In fact after the ride back, we gave cali and extra 100 baht for gas and just because we wanted to. Enjoy your trip!
