As the saying goes, good things always come in two’s. That’s why this year, Roller Coaster brings you non-stop, hair-raising action by combining two exhilarating events – the Roller Coaster X-Treme Challenge and the Tripl3 Thrill3r Thr3at – into one mega explosive challenge for twice the fun!

After weeks of mad chasing after the radio cruisers, 250 adrenaline junkies finally descended onto Roller Coaster X-Treme Challenge at Skytrex Adventure Park on 28 May 2011 – all ready to battle their way to the top on that wet and wild morning!
From exhilarating flying fox to climbing rope ladders to dizzying heights to crossing zigzag bridges strung high up on trees at breakneck speed to beat the other contestants, the extreme-activity-loving duo of Arzy Fazamy Ahmad, 32 and Amarani Amir, 33 emerged as Grand Prize winners to score a brand new iPhone 4, hampers and a cash prize of RM500! As for the First Runner-ups, Dzulkifli Alip, 27 and Amirul Ikhsan, 28, they were pleasantly surprised to win an Xbox each, hampers and RM300 in cash prize.
Right after the flying excitement of Skytrex, quick on the heels of the Roller Coaster X-Treme Challenge was the Tripl3 Thrill3r Thr3at, whereby lucky candidates who completed an online survey were able to score an exclusive chance to conquer land, water and air via the Tripl3 Thrill3r Thr3at by go wet and wild while riverboarding in Kampar on 16 July 2011,
