Our first challange

We were given a warm welcome by Mr. Scotts. He guided us during the challange. The first race starts with Mohamad Uzair vs Fanly, swimming against the water flows. Before entering, we were given costume and towels each. After the first challange, we then move to the most exciting superbowl. We slide on single and dual inflatable tube towering about 15 metres above the Hamner complex.
