Top 7 most dangerous activities that make your adrenaline go off the charts
Roller coasters, skydiving, and excursions to the mouth of an active volcano. Tourists are willing to do anything to get new vivid emotions. OBOZREVATEL has selected 7 of the most dangerous entertainments that send adrenaline through the roof.
Flying over a quarry at 150 km/h
The UK is home to the longest zip line in the world. It stretches 150 meters above the Penrhyn quarry in North Wales. It is very difficult to dare to take such a "flight" because the speed of a person going down the rope can reach 160 km/h. There is often fog over the area. This scares tourists even more because they are heading into the unknown and cannot see where they are going.
Bungee jumping over the Victoria Falls gorge
South Africa is home to the world's only waterfall that is both over 100 meters high and almost a kilometer wide. Next to it, there is a huge bungee jump where you can fly over a 120-meter gorge, next to incredible water flows. To avoid accidents, people are tied to the structure with the help of insurance.
Tornado tours in the USA
America is perhaps the "birthplace" of tornadoes. Thanks to this, an unusual service has been developed here - tours from weather forecasters that show people this natural phenomenon at a short distance. Specialists find out in advance where the storm winds that form a tornado are expected to rise in the near future. Then they take tourists there, make special fortifications and demonstrate the destructive beauty of the action.
Diving with sharks
Not everyone would dare to do this, although the entertainment is popular in many countries. The tourist is put in a sturdy cage and lowered underwater in special equipment. White sharks and other fish species swim around him. By the way, several horror movies have already been made based on this story.
China's longest cable car
Hainan is home to the country's longest cable car. It stretches over the sea and the total duration of the trip can reach as much as 15-20 minutes. All this at a great height above the water. This road leads to the famous Monkey Island and is popular among foreigners.
6-day marathon across the Sahara
Hiking across the largest desert in the world is a real test of your strength and nerves. The scorching sun, unbearable heat, and hot sand underfoot make the marathon incredibly difficult. Therefore, only trained tourists without chronic diseases are allowed to participate. The journey is accompanied by professional guides who are in touch with all rescue services.
Cycling over a cliff
This type of extreme recreation is popular in almost all mountain resorts. Cyclists look for risky routes, narrow paths near cliffs and test their skills on them. About 300 people die this way every year.
