If you haven’t considered jumping off some terrifying height yet, such as a bridge, a building, or a plane, you should.
Sky-diving, bungee jumping, and paragliding are some the greatest, albeit a little scary, adventures out there. You might feel a little nervous as you are getting strapped in, teetering on the edge, looking down and seeing nothing but emptiness. Your stomach feels heavy, your heart is beating fast, and your hands are shaking. But that moment when you jump, your heart skips a beat, and then you realize you are weightless. Looking out around you, you can see a bird-eyes view of mountains, oceans, cities, parks, and more. Flying or falling through the atmosphere gives you a rush, almost a feeling of invincibility. Then as you land, your heart is beating a little slower, you have a wide grin across your face, and the adrenaline is rushing through your veins.
Here are some of the top places to get that rush:
Bungee jump off a bridge, surrounded by green forest and an ice blue river below.
Cape Town, South Africa
Paraglide off the edge of Signal Hill in Cape Town, soaking in the views of Lions Head, Table Mountain, the city, 12 Apostles, and Robbin Island.
Queenstown, New Zealand
Located on the south island, Queenstown is an adrenaline junkie’s favourite place. Bungee jump from Nevis’s canyon platform or do a handstand off the Ledge.
Manual Antonio, Costa Rica
Sky dive over jungles and beaches in Central America.
Hong Kong, China
Jump off the Macau Tower – the world’s highest tower.
