Sometimes the humdrum daily chores of life can make us feel like there’s no excitement or adventure in our lives. If you’ve decided to make 2018 the year for some serious adrenaline-pumping action then check out these ideas that should make it onto your bucket list:
Hovercrafting – Ever wish you could glide like a demon on a hovercraft flying experience? These fantastic machines are easy to drive and fly up to one foot off the ground, so you’ll feel like you’re really flying! If you fancy a bit of power-sliding around a track, then you should definitely consider a hovercraft experience to start off the year.
Skydiving – If you’ve never tried this activity before, it really should be the one adrenaline-fuelled experience you do before you die. There are many sites in the UK that offer this opportunity but why not head to the beautiful Gower in Wales? Here you’ll enjoy amazing scenery on the aircraft journey before your thrilling freefall at over 100 mph.
Zip wires – Take a trip to Zip World in Snowdonia for some of the most intense and fastest zip wires anywhere on earth. This location boasts the only 4-person zip line in Europe. Reach speeds of up to 100mph as you fly across the stunning Snowdonia landscape.
Tank Driving – If your idea of action-packed adventure means great power at your fingertips, then why not try tank driving? This activity will suit you down to the ground as you take control of a real-life military tank in the ultimate off-road experience and go head-to-head in a tank paintball match.
Coasteering – If you love getting out and about and seeing the natural beauty of the UK, then coasteering could be for you. It involves scrambling, jumping or hopping your way around coastal cliffs, cave exploring and some swimming. It’s seriously active but an incredible experience to get wet and wild!
White Water Rafting – North Wales is a great place to dip your toe into this scary watery pastime. Experience the exhilarating ride of your life as you tightly grip your paddle and let nature thrill you. Beginners won’t be put into waters too rough, so there’s no need to ever feel out of your depth. This is one activity that should definitely be on your bucket list.
Bungee Jumping – This extreme sport is quite possibly the most terrifying, along with skydiving. If you’re brave enough to jump from the platform and hurtle towards the ground, you’ll experience a thrill like no other! Certainly not one for the faint-hearted but it’s a great way to appreciate some beautiful countryside too, as many sites are located over water in stunning places like Scotland.
