12 Things to Try Before You Die: For Thrillseekers

Life is short, so it’s important that we fill it full of activities and things that make us feel happy and accomplished. For some, that might just mean getting a great job and buying their own house, but for others it might mean stepping into the cage of death or kayaking over a waterfall. This post is dedicated to the thrillseekers out there; here’s 12 things to try before you die:

1. Volcano Boarding

Snowboarding isn’t the thrill to seek anymore - volcano boarding is! Take yourself to Cerro Negro in Nicaragua (which last erupted in 1999), take a hike over the landscape, board down the slopes of the mountain and then enjoy a cocktail or two to chill out.

2. Step Into The Cage of Death

The ‘Cage of Death’ in Australia puts you in the middle of some of the country’s most dangerous crocodiles for 15 minutes, separated by only a few inches of perspex material. 

3. Do an Everest Skydive

Sure, you could climb Everest with a company like Private Expeditions, or you could get in a plane and do a skydive above it!

4. Free Dive in Dean’s Blue Hole

Dean’s Blue Hole is a deep, dark, scary pool of water. Freediving here can be very liberating indeed if you think you can handle it!

5. Have a Go on The World’s Steepest Rollercoaster

The world’s steepest roller coaster is located in Japan at the Fuji-Q theme park. You’ll love the g-force that holds you back through 7 twists and a 43 meter drop!

6. Go Zorbing

You might feel a bit like a hamster, but zorbing can be a great way to bring the child out in you. Simply climb into a big ball at the top of a hill and get pushed down it at top speed!

7. Run With The Bulls

Who doesn’t want to be chased by bulls? Run as fast as you can as the large, heavy beasts try to trample you!

8. Kayak Over a Waterfall

Kayaking over waterfalls is something the Americans love to do. Have lots of fun taking on waterfalls higher than Niagara falls!

9. Eat Dinner in The Sky

Eat dinner from 50 meters in the air; what a view! Choose 21 friends to take with you and enjoy your dinner in the sky (just go to the loo before you ascend).

10. Climb Harbour Bridge

Climbing the harbour bridge in Australia can be done many ways but is plenty of fun no matter which you choose.

11. Swim With Great White Sharks

Head on over to Cape Town and swim with great white sharks. Just make sure you stay inside the cage at all times!

12. Go Cheese Rolling

Gloucester in England is famous for it’s cheese rolling tradition. Chase a round block of cheese down a hill and perhaps fracture a few bones while doing so!

Can you think of anything to add to the list? We think the 12 things listed here are some of the most thrilling out there - don’t miss out!
