Last March 9, at around 8 PM, I (partially) conquered my fear of heights when I decided to take the Cebu Skywalk Adventure at the Regency Hotel in Cebu City.  The ledge is located around the 40th floor of the hotel, directly below the Edge Coaster.  I chose to walk rather than ride the Coaster for the reason that I found it to be safer - you are secured by a harness and safety belts on your upper body and around both legs; and it took a longer time since you had to walk around the building.  Except for us four, everyone else opted to take the Coaster - only to find out later that it only lasted barely 2 minutes and got them 2 pictures on the average :p

After the crew sees to it that you are well-secured, they lead you out to the ledge.

we did NOT ride the Edge Coaster :) we walked on the LEDGE
  The initial feeling is of fear and slowly gives way to exhilaration when you make the first turn.  When I was out there, there wasn't much of the wind so I only had myself to blame if I lost my balance!  The view was fantastic, you can see practically all of Cebu, Mandaue and Mactan. 

It took us around 30 minutes to complete the walk for we had to stop at strategic viewing points.  At the third turn ( I think), we decided to sit on the ledge and let our legs dangle.  Our guide walked with us together with the (official) photographer.  One advantage of the walk over the coaster was the time element and importantly, the photo opportunity :)  You can't bring your own camera out there.

I do not know how it would have turned out if we had it during the day.
final instructions...
  The depth would not have been so obvious but I think the view will be much better.  Further, if you have the good fortune of going there without the usual volume of the other would-be sky walkers, you can have a second or even third round around the ledge.  Having said that, my next 'project' would then have to be going up again and doing the walk during the day.  If I have earlier said that I did not entirely do away with my fear of heights, then maybe by that time I will have done so already. 

Regency Hotel is right at the heart of Cebu City - along the Fuente Osmena circle.  Tickets are good for two pax at the rate of P450 per more or less.  Wear sneakers/rubber shoes.  They are open from 2pm until midnight.

I think we had to add extra for the CD containing all our pictures taken by the official photographer
