Finding the perfect activity for the right rush can be difficult, and is something that true adrenaline junkies constantly strive for. With so many options available these days, which ones are the best, most adrenaline inducing activities out there? Here are just a few of them, check out these 5 insane ways to get your adrenaline rush.
Zipping across stark white snow surrounded by beautiful trees can be fun for anyone. But, taken to the extreme, it can be one of the most exhilarating activities out there. Depending on where you go, you can check out different snowmobile trails, jumps, and lessons to really get your adrenaline pumping. While it’s exciting and reasonably safe to go out, never go out alone, and without the aid of necessary tools. The Snowmobile Safety Awareness Program recommends bring a GPS, snow shovel, an ice pick, and flares. I would add an avalanche beacon, as well, depending on conditions.
One of the most intense adrenaline rushes can come from bridge jumping. Whether you jump into a body of water freestyle or take the leap with a bungee cord, you won’t find many activities that give you the same rush as you can get from jumping off a bridge. If you’re experienced in this, check out your area for bridge jumping that you can do on your own or with friends. However, if you are new to this activity, it’s best to start off with a company or professional who knows what they’re doing. Not only are the activities inherently dangerous do to their nature, but many bridges are not properly suited to the task. According to Abels & Annes, “occurs when these surfaces are not secured, which can cause the surface to shift and fall apart. These unsecure surfaces can cause workers [or thrill-seekers] to fall and become seriously injured.”
Checking out waterfalls is cool, kayaking is cool, waterfall kayaking is EPIC. A great adrenaline rush can happen when you start down the river and start heading closer and closer to your waterfall destination. As with any other adrenaline inducing activity, it’s important to keep your safety in mind. Try it for the first time with a professional and make sure you have the proper safety attire before you head off the deep end.
Scuba diving is great for those who love the water, enjoy exploring, and need their adrenaline fix. Many areas require certifications in order to make sure your safety is protected, so gear up and head to a class before you start exploring the deep blue sea.
One of the best things about rock climbing is that you can tailor it to fit your adrenaline needs. There are plenty of easy rock climbing areas for beginners to feel safe on, but for the adrenaline junkie who really needs their fix, the sport can be taken to the extreme for a maximized adrenaline rush. When big-wall climbing, always go in a team, and learn proper camming or anchoring techniques. No matter how big your thrill-seeking muscle is, never freeclimb higher than 12 feet. That’s stupid.
Whether it’s scuba diving, bridge jumping, rock climbing, or any other activity on this list, we hope you have found the right activity to suit your needs and get an awesome adrenaline rush.
