Do You Dare Try These Vacation Activities?

Going on holiday (vacation) is something that everyone looks forward to. Getting that time away from school or work is always going to be an exciting time. But, if you’re looking to take your holiday one step further than the typical sunbathing and sightseeing, then there are some options to do this. Here are some awesome, but terrifying holiday activities.


Bungee Jumping

 


Bungee jumping is a thrilling experience where you jump off of a tall structure while you are tied to an elastic cord. The idea is that the cord will pull you back up and throw you down again when it has reached its limit. Many people find bungee jumping an adrenaline fueled good time, whereas others find the idea of it too much to bear. You must be at least 18 years of age to take a jump without parental consent. If you are under 18 then you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian or have written and signed consent.






Skydiving





A step up from bungee jumping is skydiving. If you take part in this exhilarating experience, you will free fall from a plane from 10,000 or 15,000 feet. At first you will do a tandem dive where you have someone strapped to your back and they do all the work for you and keep you safe. However, there have been occasions where accidents have happened and people have subsequently died as a result. If this happens, your family will be entitled to sue for wrongful death. When you need help dealing with wrongful death, a lawyer or a therapist can help. They can explain what will happen if you sue and the therapist will be able to aid you with the emotional trauma that may follow.




Roller Coasters

 


Some people love roller coaster and others hate them. To some, a roller coaster is just as scary as a skydive and others will think that there is no comparison. However, it has been argued that going on a thrill ride roller coaster produces just as much adrenaline as a skydive does. Roller coasters are pretty safe, they have seat belts and the ones that go upside down have an over the shoulder protector to keep you in place in your seat. That being said, there has also been some highly publicized accidents that have occurred in theme parks. Though this is usually proved to be human error and not a fault in the ride itself.



White Water Rafting

 


This experience can include rapids from a level one to a level 5 and 6. The higher the level, the more dangerous the rapids and as such, the higher levels are typically reserved for experienced rafters. However, you can always go for the lower level rapids which may still include scary drops and high speeds. The Brahmaputra River in India is said to be one of the most amazing places in the world to experience this activity. Here, your raft will pass lots of forests making it a beautiful experience as well as a fun one. You may also come across some remote tribal settlements, which will be a completely unique and compelling experience.


We hope that you will consider these activities if you are looking to make your holiday more than just a beach vacation.
