4 Extreme Activities to Bring Out Your Wild Side

Unique adventures are kind of my thing - hence the whole "Adventures with Anna" blog. Call me a thrillseeker, or dare devil, or idiot, but no matter what you call me - I have a lot of fun. Between flying a plane while filming, throwing axes, and swimming with sharks, it's no secret that I love a good adrenaline rush. I've put together a list of 4 extreme activities that I haven't done - yet.

1. Visit the Cage of Death in Australia

Located in Darwin, Australia, the Cage of Death is a glass enclosure that allows travelers to come face to face with giant saltwater crocodiles. Sessions last 15 minutes and you and your bff can watch up close and personal while the crocodiles do whatever it is that crocodiles do. At the beginning of the session, you'll dangle above the water so you can watch the crocs be fed. After they're done, you'll be lowered into the tank to get a more personal interaction (but hopefully, not too personal, you know?). The Cage of Death is in Crocosaurus Cove, and it costs $170 USD for one person, and $260 for two.

2. Zapcat powerboating

These inflatable raceboats will blow your mind. I find that when I describe these boats, they tend to get brushed off because they're inflatable. But let me tell you, Zapcats are equipped with extremely powerful engines - to the point where you'll need to wear protective gear. According to this site, the average speed of one of these bad boys is 50 mph. That's 20 mph faster than the average ferry. The speed combined with the high waves and flowing currents in the ocean is sure to give you that adrenaline rush. If you're looking to drive one of these fast fellas, you'll be looking at around 200 pounds, or $250 USD.

3. Canyon Swinglining

Imagine your favorite childhood rope swing - much higher, much longer rope, and above a canyon. Some say you can hit speeds up to 50 mph as you swing on a rope over 200 feet long. Prices vary based on the destination you choose, the size of your group, and which variation of the swing you choose.

4. Volcano Boarding

Snowboarding is great and everything, but also... brr. I've never been one for anything cold - except ice cream. But when it comes to traveling, I like to avoid the snow. Probably because I grew up in Ohio, where 6-8 months out of the year have snow. Anyway, the point is, my hatred of snow but love for adventure led me here - to volcano boarding. Which is exactly like snowboarding, except it's on a Volcano slope. You can slide down standing up or sitting down, whichever you find more comfortable. According to the Expert Vagabond, these boards can reach speeds up to 30 mph. At just around $50 USD, I'd have to say it's worth a shot. I can't vouch for the safety of this activity, especially because the slope is made up of tiny rocks, but I'm more than willing to try it out for all of us and report back.
