For those adrenaline rush junkies out there, a holiday is all about taking it to the limit. Sure, you may already have done some quite daring things in your life but if you really want to make your travel memorable include these crazy extreme adventure activities in your last holiday.
Let’s start with things that you can do to satisfy your thirst for heights. Bungee jumping is a common itinerary of those who love the extreme but did you know it can even become scarier? We’re not talking about the regular bungee jump off a bridge but the one from off a building-the tallest building in Macau! That’s a 233 meter drop down and if you don’t get high from the adrenaline pumping as your face plummets to the ground, you have some serious issues my friend.
Still talking about the height adventures, how about a ride on the world’s tallest and fastest roller coaster? The Kingda-ka in New Jersey is a unique ride that zooms from 0 to 128mph in only 3.5 seconds that throws you about 45 stories in the sky and then horizontally at 270 degree spin. Even the description is enough to get you dizzy!
Have you ever wondered how tires feel as they turn round and round and round? Get yourself into the motion and go Zorbing in New Zealand. You are strapped inside an inflatable ball and rolled down a special terrain that can be wet or dry, straight or zigzagged. Be careful with your lunch though or it may end up on your partners lap!
And now off to the water enthusiasts. On our list is off course water rafting. Not that thrilling for you? How about we throw in a few crocodiles and hippos to make sure you stick inside your boat? The journey starts under the Victoria Falls and takes you along the Zambezi River with Hippos along the side, crocodiles beneath and monkeys with you. If that doesn’t thrill you, I don’t know what will.
The Death Road in La Paz, Bolivia runs for 40 miles through the Amazon jungle and has been officially declared the most dangerous road in the world. With narrow lanes, harsh terrain and drops of thousands of feet-this is no play ground but a challenge only fit for the best bikers out there. Did I mention that the nearest hospital is a two hour drive away?
So if you’re crazy enough to try out any of the above mentioned experiences- enjoy!
