To many, Alex Blyth has had a Hollywood-style adventurer’s life… traveling to war-torn countries with the British Army, climbing mountains and trekking across Antarctica to the South Pole. Add to that a successful career in financial publishing and event management and you would think this man could rest easy, knowing he has achieved more than most already.
Instead, Alex conceived the idea of gathering experts in the high ropes world and bringing them to Asia to show the region how it should be done. His first foray is now complete and rises majestically from the hilltop at Imbiah on Sentosa Island, Singapore. Last year he successfully launched the first Mega Adventure Park in Australia, a sister park to the flagship in Singapore.
Now that ‘Adventure Park Creator’ has been added to Alex’s repertoire he may decide to contemplate and enjoy his achievements… but we highly doubt it!
Mega Adventure started life just for the fun of it all: a chance to take a risk, confront a challenge and say:
“Yes, I’ll give that a bash!”
I had an idea which could combine my passion for outdoor adventure, with my business experience, and do some good for others. During my time in the army, I had used and instructed on ‘high ropes’ courses to build confidence and courage in recruits. These obstacles and activities created exhilaration and challenge for individuals and teams. With a growing appreciation and appetite for outdoor adventure pursuits, Mega Adventure was born.
Mega Adventure provides an opportunity for anyone who tries it, to discover more about themselves and the world of excitement and possibilities that surround them. What is our purpose in life? To remain safe, comfortable and untroubled by the unpredictable? Much modern technology is aimed at achieving exactly that, by reducing our exposure to the risk of harm. It’s a laudable motive, but in achieving it, we also lose the essence of life and the very emotional tools that have allowed us to thrive, ascend and evolve. Mega Adventure’s objectives are not earth shattering, ambitious or mighty. It is simply to give people the opportunity to challenge themselves through adventure.
By committing and achieving, people grow in definable measures. Confidence, courage and self-esteem build you as a person and encourage you to take paths you might not otherwise have taken. By yourself, with family, friends or colleagues – it’s a chance to take a risk and say “Yes, I can, Yes, I will. Yes, I did…”
